We were given these small containers of formula in the hospital after our first son was born. He was a large baby (nine pounds and ten ounces) at birth, and he needed some extra supplementation when we were in the hospital. Although this formula did the job for him and provided him with good nutrition, in my opinion, it is not worth extended use. The bottles are small, but still cost a good bit of money. On top of that, the hospital recommended disposing of the bottle once it had been opened and used once. If used on an older child that would drink the whole thing at once, that might not be so bad. But on a newborn that may only drink about one tenth of the bottle, it is a great waste to throw the rest away. Easily Digested Our son did pretty well digesting this formula, especially considering all the other changes of being born. Ease of Preparation Since it is already in liquid form, this formula is extremely easy to use, which is one of its better qualities.
