I wanted to use organic formula for my son but all of the formulas we tried constipated him. We've tried Earths best, Honest & Parents choice. This was the first formula that we didn't have to use probiotic drops to combat the constipation. My biggest annoyance with this particular formula is that none of our Walmart's in Jacksonville carry it so I had to order it online. The ship to store option has not worked for us, the formula was always delayed, once taking over 2 weeks to get to the store. So it was better to just order the $50 minimum to get free shipping to our house. Regardless I still recommend this product especially after spending $25 6 times a month on Earths Best formula for the better part of this year.

Best price for organic formula!
I'm so thankful Parent's Choice makes this organic formula. I know all babies are different, but my baby did well with this formula. She started drinking it when she was 3 months old and still drinks it now st almost a year old. This has the same nutritional benefits as Similac Organic, but costs about $13 less!
Quality product, good value
I'm currently feeding my second formula fed daughter, so I've gone through several brand name products. When Similac and Gerber still didn't stop her excessive spit up, I decided to give this a try. It does not mix as well as others, but I've read that's true of most organic formulas. Otherwise, she has experienced much less spit ups and better #2 diapers since using this formula. Will stick with it!
Why isn't this in stores??
I like the formula, however it should be available in stores. Shipping to the store or home take a week and formula is something that is extremely important and needs to be readily available. What is going to happen in the winter when the trucks gets stuck with snowstorms and deliveries have to come to a stop? That could be dangerous.
Great but not easy to digest
4 months old is co n stipated . they should add probiotics . now i have to switch to infant non GMO. I hope there are no pesticides in the ingredients . i feel bad because i love the idea of being orga nic but i cannot use it.
Causes constipation!! As soon as we switched to this from Gerbers our 3 month old became constipated! He tryied to poop for a whole day and pushed and pushed. Finally the next morning he finally got some out. The first was a super hard solid bowel which he had to really push to get it out! I even resorted to try to dig it out with my finger nail! About 1 hour later he pushed out another that made him cry because it hurt him so much. This formula may work on the majority of babies, but just like all people, some foods will cause constipation for some but not for others. Just be weary if deciding to buy this formula. Some things are not wirth trying to save a buck.
