What is the closest formula to breast milk?

Formulas Closest To Breast Milk
  • Similac Advance Non-GMO Infant Formula. (Via Amazon.com)
  • Gerber Good Start Gentle Infant Formula. (Via Amazon.com)
  • Plum Organics Grow Well Infant Formula. (Via Amazon.com)
  • Enfamil Premium New-born. (Via Amazon.com)
  • Earth's Best Organic Infant Formula.
  • Baby's Only Organic Dairy Formula.

Correspondingly, how long does it take to go through a can of formula?

If I remember correctly 1 "scoop" makes 2 oz. Baby eats 2-4 oz each feeding in the early weeks/months and every 2-3 hours. I forget how much each scoop is but a 22-25 oz can of powder would last me about a week I think. Mind you that I didn't start using formula full time with DD#1 until she was about 9 weeks old.

Is it cheaper to breastfeed or formula?

Sure, nursing your baby is generally cheaper than formula feeding. Still, breastfeeding is far from free. In fact, it can come with its own set of costs, including expensive lactation consultant fees and far-from-cheap accessories, such as pumps, nursing pillows and freezer storage bags.

How long can you leave out formula?

Formula that is sitting out at room temperature must be thrown away after 1 hour. If it is in the refrigerator, pre-mixed formula (also called ready-to-feed formula) that is opened must be thrown out after 48 hours. Formula that you mixed must be thrown out after 24 hours.
