Save money with cost-conscious infant nutrition
Cohen suggests sticking with major manufacturers who have done extensive research on developing products modeled after breastmilk. At the top of the list for healthy infants (infants without special concerns such as pre-term, reflux, etc.) is Enfamil Premium, which has a higher content of docosahexaenoic acid (DHA) considered brain food for babies than comparable products. For parents seeking a generic brand, Cohen says Costcos Kirkland Signature Infant Formula or any brand from Perrigo Nutritionals (makers of generics sold at Target, Walmart, Sams Club and more), provide less expensive options that are FDA approved. Introducing solids at six months is recommended and Cohen suggests starting with veggies first so kids dont develop a sweet tooth.
