New babies are expensive. I have raised four of my own (each about 2 years apart) so I know the expenses related to raising kids. One of the most expensive things is the formula the first year. I tried nursing but my milk didn’t come in very well on my first two and the last two we struggled with thrush – so I threw in the towel at about 2 months old on all of them and we ended up formula feeding. I can’t say that I regret it at all. While I enjoyed breastfeeding, I also loved the way my husband and other family members got to bond with the baby during feeding time as well. We used **store brand formula** because it was more affordable and it is nutritionally comparable to nationally advertised brands. By buying store brand formula we were able to save up to 50%! Do you have a favorite store brand?

We also know every parent has a special formula for how they balance it all: family, work and “me” time. We want to know YOUR secret formula to parenthood happiness. And if a picture is worth a thousand words, using emojis to show your formula could be worth $1,000 and a year’s supply of store brand infant formula!

I had a lot of fun making my formula for parenting. There are so many options to choose from it was hard to decide what to put. Here is a light interpretation of it: My angel baby needs lots of kisses, we go on lots of walks with her diaper bag and we love to sing and look at the beautiful world around us. She loves to give our kitty hugs and sometimes he can be grouchy. We are a happy family.
