    Pros: Inexpensive, same as larger company nutrition
    Cons: None

    Summary: After all this recent press about Similac having beetles and their lavae in it, I will never buy Similac again, but my baby needed something different. She was already very gassy and irritable, because her formula was not the best, like I thought it was. ... read more

    Pros: Powder form: Great Value, son loved the taste
    Cons: Premixed liquid---stay away. Powdered: Nothing bad so far
