Pros:Babies gain a significant amount of weight in a short period of time.
Cons:The lowest price I've seen for six pack of 8 oz. cans is $10.19.
The Bottom Line: Good for supplemental feedings, but beware of letting your child get too much of it. If they develop a taste for it, that's all you'll get into them.
I had twins born 4 moths premature. After a year of being on Neosure, their pediatrician put them on PediaSure. At first the price wasn't a concern to me. But after a few weeks of being on PediaSure, the babies decided that they no longer liked baby food, the would rather have PediaSure (which comes in vanilla, chocolate, strawberry and my personal favorite,d banana cream) because it tasted much better than the peas and carrots I was trying to feed them. So because of this, they went from going through 3 cans a day between the two of them to going through at least 6 cans a day. The cheapest I've found it is at Kroger's for $10.19 for a six pack of 8 oz cans. Well when you are going through a six pack a day, the price racks up. To top it off, insurance will not pay for it because you do not need a prescription to buy it. Yes it is a very good product if you are trying to get your child to gain weight. The twins went from being barely over 12 lbs., to 17 lbs. and 16 lbs. in a period of about 5 weeks. I only had a few problems with the product it's self (excluding price). First of all, after a while, that is all the babies want (who wouldn't pick banana cream pie over mixed vegetables?) The other problem I found was that the chocolate flavor stains everything it comes into contact with. We lost a few bed sheets and a couple of outfits in the 24 hours my children had chocolate. One very important thing a parent needs to keep in mind while feeding their child PediaSure, is to not let the child determine that this is the only thing they are going to eat. Keep feeding the baby food that they love so much, because if you give in (like I did) not only will your bank account go to nonexistent, you'll have a hard time getting them to take anything else when the doctor takes them off of it (trust me, I know first hand about that).
