Perrigo Nutritionals Unique Baby Sweepstakes (and a Giveaway!)

Having had 4 children, I know the importance of good nutrition and saving money!  With our first baby (who is now almost 11!), we researched EVERYTHING and wanted to choose only the best.  The challenge we faced was that I was working part-time teaching kindergarten, my husband had just graduated graduate school, and we were looking to buy our first home.  It was tough to make choices when the media made it seem that the best choices were the priciest!  

It needs to be said that I nursed all my children and knew I was giving then best start that way.  But as we all know, there are times and circumstances when nursing isn't and option and it's necessary to use formula...which is just so expensive!  Tater, my oldest, never could control the flow of breast milk, so after 6 months of exclusively pumping, we knew we needed to switch to formula...for my sanity!  Lol!  Bruiser, the next oldest, had a lactose intolerance and continued on formula well past a year, after weaning.  And then our newest little one (in that cute picture above!), Bubba, developed a weird intolerance to dairy and needed formula to avoid rashes. baby and feeding situation is perfect :).

So back to the pricey part of feeding babies!  We felt drawn to buy the name brand formulas, because we wanted the best and real thing for our babies.  You understand, right?  Well, shortly after switching Tater to formula, we had an appointment with our pediatrician.  We were every surprised (and pleased!) when he encouraged us to switch to the store brand formula!  He shared how formula companies are strictly regulated and a completely safe and nutritional alternative.  It was a life-saver (and bank account saver!).

Read below for more information and to check out the Sweepstakes...there are great prizes to be won!  In the meantime, I have a $30 Visa gift card to give away!  Leave a comment sharing how you save money raising your little one!  I will randomly choose a winner on Friday, October 16th.  Happy sharing and good luck!

When it comes to infant formula, many factors will help make the decision of what’s best for your baby, but the name on the container should not be one of them! 
What most moms don’t know is that the FDA strictly regulates infant formula to keep little ones safe, so store brand infant formulas, like Walmart’s Parent’s Choice and Target’s Up and Up, are nutritionally comparable to national brands like Enfamil® and Similac® and meet FDA standards, at a much lower cost to your family.
So essentially, the brand of formula you use is not unique, but of course your baby is unique.
To shine the spotlight on the most important part of the formula equation: your baby, Store Brand Formula is launching a “Unique Baby” Photo Sweepstakes in which the winner will receive $5,000 AND a year supply of Store Brand Formula.
Every baby is unique. Show us how YOUR baby is unique.  We’re looking for funny, silly, odd, crazy unique baby photos.

Is your baby making a really bizarre expression?
Perhaps your baby is making an angry face?

Whatever it is, we’d love to see it.

  1. I save money by combining coupons with store sales, buying clothes on clearance and using store brand products. Thanks for the chance to win

  2. When my oldest done was a baby, he drank so much formula that were were spending $25 every four days on Similac. It wasn't until later that we found out about Target's formula and how much money we could have saved. Now, with our youngest son, that's what we have used from the very beginning. We have saved so much money buying the Target brand formula.
