This whole Similac formula recall debacle is very much reminding me of the massive tylenol/motrin recall a few months ago. Everyone feels so secure using ‘name brand’.. and the name brands are the ONLY ones that ever get recalled!
I don’t have any plans on going back to name brand infant pain reliever after the two recalls in a row WHILE my kid was sick/teething and needed it and I couldn’t find any.. and with this Similac recall? It makes me glad Parker’s birthday is tomorrow. Which means no more formula (or close to having no more formula). We don’t use Similac in our house but it’s still a very scary thing to hear about. It could happen to anyone.
I’ve written in probably seven previous blogs about the benefits of store brand formula , and how I think anyone about to give birth or with a baby who can tolerate a formula switch to switch to generic formula . I think with this recall, a lot of people will be much less likely to consider Similac, or maybe even name brands in general. Just seems to be an omen! And you’re really doing a good thing by switching. Since all formulas have to be FDA approved- you’re not taking a step down by using store brand.
And now you can even buy Parents Choice store brand online by the case (4 or 6 units). No extra charge for shipping to your home, comes in all the different formulas for your baby’s specific needs (even ready-to-feed). I always loathed constantly having to run to the store to buy formula twice a week because name brand is just too expensive to buy in bulk. Not the case with Parents Choice- it’s so cheap you can buy it in bulk without putting a serious hurt on your wallet.
Are you considering making the switch? If not.. you should!
I've never had a near death experience, but I DID find 2 spiders in my house this morning, and that's pretty much the same thing.
If you like to be constantly criticized over your peanut butter to jelly ratio on sandwiches, being a parent is definitely for you.
