For those of you who did not breast feed or wound up supplementing, what brand did you use? I know the hospital probably sends you home with one particular brand. I just started to look at pricing for when the bean does arrive. I wanted to be prepared to stock up at certain stores when I know the pricing is right. I looked at 3 brands, Enfamil, similac and Gerber good start. From what I read and have heard on boards, Enfamil and similac are pretty much the same thing. B/w those 2 and Gerber, the key difference is lactose was the first ingredient in Enfamil/Similac but Gerber's was a whey protein.
So many freaking decisions! ahghhg
