This formula is very well made with healthy ingredients that do help a baby's development. For our family, it seems to work as well as the name-brand equivalent products, but it is far cheaper. Combining its performance with its low price makes it a good deal that is worth considering.

Easily Digested
Our babies have not had digestion problems or diaper rash problems through the use of this product. However, we have also tried several other brands that also did not give problems, so it seems that our babies do not have very sensitive stomachs. For babies with more sensitive stomachs, I would recommend some of the sensitive formulas that are a bit more gentle.

Ease of Preparation
The formula is easy to add to a bottle and mix with water. However, the one downside is that the can itself is rather large. It is not easy to pack and take on a trip without taking a lot of space, which is rather inconvenient at times. But that is a natural downside to buying a bigger can in order to save money over smaller cans.

I purchased this baby formula because it was cheaper than other leading brands. I thought it was worth a try. It was easy to prepare by following the instructions on the can. Just one scoop per every 2 ounces of water. I quickly noticed that the formula did not dissolve as quickly as I expected. It clumped up at the top and on the bottom. I had to shake the bottle an extra long time and it still never completely dissolved. My baby didn't seem happy with the formula either. He would turn his head during feeding time when I knew he had to be hungry. Eventually he would take it, but after he was done drinking his bottle, I would find clumps of formula left on the bottom. I just couldn't keep feeding it to him knowing that he didn't like it. I gave the rest of the can away. I had hoped that it would work for us because the price is great and the ingredients come very close in comparison to most other brands. Unfortunately, it didn't meet the baby's taste bud standards. I would recommend that parents give this formula a try. If your baby will drink it, then you will save a lot of money on formula.

    This formula was so gritty, and didn't mix well it also made my daughter spit up more than usual. We won't waste our money again.

    foamy but good for the price

    Comments about Parent's Choice Premium Infant Formula:

    Switched from enfamil infant as my DS eats like a tank and the price was significantly lower. My only real complaint is that the formula is hard to mix. It requres a lot of swirling and shaking that leads to a large foam layer. Orherwise fine, until he starts to get gas pains or severe constipation from it we will still use this.

    THe most budget freindly formula

    By 

    from USA

    Comments about Parent's Choice Premium Infant Formula:

    I have used this on all three of my youngest children and have been nothing but delighted with it. Of course I have started them out on the formulas the doctors recommend, and either they do not seem full when they are done or they just can't tolerate most of them. But, with Parent Choice I have never had a single issue arise. I have never had one of my three have issues with fussiness, constipation or gas.

    Money wise it is definitely worth the price. Parent's Choice formulas are a high quality formula that is easy on your wallet and well worth the money. The size of the containers is great and last longer than the name brands as well.

    While I have not tried the whole line of formulas, I would have no problems with trying any of them if My babies would need to. Parents Choice can definitely compete with any of the name brand formulas that are out there. Just because the cost is less does not mean the quality is less!

    Ease of Preparation
    It doesn't clump up in the bottle and then clog the nipple like some formulas do.

    Good low priced formula

    By 

    from Florida

    Comments about Parent's Choice Premium Infant Formula:

    I was a little wary about trying this with one of the infants that I care for but we were out of formula and her mom said that she had tried it before so we went ahead and tried it.

    Not only is parents choice priced really well, it can completely measure up with the brand name formulas. It mixes better than some of the other brands. The infant I used it with had been using Enfamil and the transition was a smooth one, she actually liked the Parents Choice formula better than the Enfamil.

    While it might not be for everyone or for moms who insist on using brand name formulas, it is a great alternative to the more expensive brands and I didn't see any reactions to it over the time I used it with the baby.

    I would definately definitely recommend it to moms who are looking for a great formula and are looking for a cheaper alternative to the pricey brands.

    I had no problems with baby digesting this formula.

    Parents Choice Infant formula

    By

    Comments about Parent's Choice Premium Infant Formula:

    Wonderful formula for those on a budget. Exactly like the name brand for half the price. All formulas are FDA regulated so buying a generic does not mean you are sacrificing nutrients or ingredients for your precious bundle. Babies are expensive!! As parents we need to save where we can. Thank you Parents Choice for making a good alternative and a way for us to save some pennies!

    Easily Digested
    I have used this formula for now two babies. After using the way more expensive name brands I have found this formula is exactly the same! My babies digested the same way as the name brands and everything about it was identical. It looked the same, smelled the same, only thing was it costs a lot less.

    Ease of Preparation
    Super easy to prepare. Just premeasure you water in the bottle of your choice, then add in how ever many scoops for the ounces of water you used. I always then closed the bottle, placed my finger over the little nipple hole and gently shook the bottle to mix.

    Great value for the same thing as name brand!

    By 

    from USA

    Comments about Parent's Choice Premium Infant Formula:

    This is the brand of formula our daycare provider uses. They are a state licensed daycare and are required to provide one type of formula for infants. This is the same exact formula as the name brand that I was purchasing for our child. Once we realized that this brand worked just as well, we switched. We have purchased this in larger portions at a better price than the matching name brand.

    Easily Digested
    Out of all the formulas we've tried, this and the corresponding name brand were the best match. We had no problems with digestion. Our son was extremely difficult to burp, which did lead to some cases of spitting up. This didn't affect him any differently than the brand the hospital gave us.

    Ease of Preparation
    This mixes just as well as the matching name brand. No clumps or grainy leftovers at the bottom like a few brands we used. As long as the formula is added to water and not the other way around, absolutely no issues.

    Just like enfamil

    Comments about Parent's Choice Premium Infant Formula:

    This is the only store brand formula I will use. I use Enfamil up to six months and then I switch to store brand. This is the closet formula to Enfamil. My baby gets upset tummies on other brands and could only use Enfamil. He easily switched to this brand from the Enfamil with no tummy aches. A great price.

    Easily Digested
    No tummyaches for my lil one.

    Just as good as Enfamil and Similac

    By 

    from USA

    Comments about Parent's Choice Premium Infant Formula:

    Paren't Choice formula is great! If you pay attention to the nutrition label, it has all of the same ingredients and nutrients (and the nutrient amounts) as the big brands such as Enfamil and Similac. It has all the nutrition that your baby needs and more. It's still almost as expensive as the big brands, but it's a little bit cheaper. So if you need to save even just a little bit of money, parent's choice formula is the way to go. My daughter never had any problems with the taste of it. In fact, some people have told me that it tastes better than the big brands. But I haven't tasted it so I wouldn't know. My daughter hasn't had any problems with digesting it either.

    Easily Digested
    It doesn't make my daughter spit up any more than if she's breastfed. It doesn't give her gas either.

    Ease of Preparation
    One scoop per 2 ounces of water is as simple as it gets. If you want to prevent bubbles, don't shake, just stir with a fork or something instead.
