Our formula costs $48 for 12 cans of concentrate. She eats approximately 1 can a day (25oz). She's not a big eater, never has been. I like to try to trade things I have (clothes, etc) on mom sharing pages (on Facebook) for formula and coupons. Similac also sends out cheques for $5 or $10 off which helps. Powder is cheaper, but my daughter will not eat powder.

I believe an average spend in the UK is about ten pounds a week - perhaps less at first although newborns do waste a lot sometimes, and perhaps more in the couple of months before weaning, and perhaps more if you use some cartons out of the home for convenience. So you can essentially write off your child benefit money for a second child.

To bloody much, before we started weaning and for a month or two after it was costing around 50-60 a month.

I use Enfamil Gentlease. I buy the formula in bulk at a store called BJ's in the states. I get much more for my money there. I spend about 150 a month in formula and my son eats a lot!

My 7 week old went through about $200 last month... but we are on WIC, which paid for 9 cans ($145). WIC only gives cans, not the cheaper tubs, and they give you Enfamil, which is the most expensive one out there and stingy with coupons!

Figured we could feed store brand for much, MUCH less if we weren't on WIC, but baby doesn't like switching between formulas.

We used Aptimil and it was around 10 a tub and would last 4/5 days.
