Is Kirkland infant formula ok for my baby?

I worry because it's the Costco brand.


Answer by  karia12 (95)

All infant formulas are regulated by the FDA. If you feel uncomfortable, compare the brand you use or your doctor recommends with the Costco brand by comparing the ingredients. In most cases you will find that they are either the same or very similar. Then compare the labels to make sure it has DHA, an essential ingredient for all formulas.

Infant formula is strictly regulated by the government. The nutritional value of all infant formulas regardless of brand is nearly identical. Any infant formula will meet your baby's nutritional needs. The differences are in taste, source of sweeteners, etc.


Answer by  snessia (991)

It's fine. Ingredients for infant formula are strictly controlled so the basics of all formula, even organic, are almost identical. If your baby likes it, go for it.

If your baby has special needs or a sensitive stomach, for example has colic or GERD, then you will want to avoid store brand formulas. The best idea is to try it for two weeks and then go back to the other formula to look for changes.

Kirkland infant formula meets the same government standards as all other baby formula on the shelf. It is fine to give to your child. Do check the expiration date; never give your child formula that has expired.
