If you're buying Similac for your baby according to the news, generic is the way to go.  FDA requires that for baby formula it contain exactly the same ingredients as name brand.  Three weeks after I stopped breastfeeding I made my first Similac run to the store (my husband and been buying it up until this point).  $14.99 for one can of dry powder!  We go through two cans a week just for the nighttime feedings!  During the day we use the refrigerated premixed formula which is usually about $20 per jug.  If you purchase it in bulk it's about $15 per jug and 6 come in a box.  We go through the jugs every 2 1/2 days.  Regardless, formula is extremely expensive and liquid formula is even more than the powder!  The advantage for the liquid formula during the day is really just because it's less mess, faster, and easier.  We opt for the dry at night because when our son is crying to be fed there's no letting the bottle warm up to room temperature he wants it right then.  Dry is also a lot easier to deal with when you're out and about as well, then you don't have to worry about refrigerating anything.  My point is, shop generic because any little bit is going to help you save money and having a child is very expensive!
