    Hi, I don't advise this as you don't know for sure your LO will be happy on the particular formula you buy...

    def agree dont bulk buy in advance

    id suggest putting away tht amount each week about 7 per tin x

    or if you think u wouldnt be strict enough not to spend what you have saved get a boots gift card and top it up each week

    then once baby is here use the gift card to pay.. stage one formula is never on special offer so need to worry about it being cheaper else were...

    just dont lose the gift card..

    i agree with not buying in bulk, i bought 5 tins of sma gold only for LO not to take to it, luckily (and cheekily) OH took the unopened 4 back to asda and exchanged them for dif kind
