Via Parent Hacks: there are likely free formula samples available at your pediatrician’s office.  I can attest to this, having gotten some samples from our pediatrician when my son was only a couple of weeks old.  The sample also came with a free book that was a bit like “What to Expect the First Year”, but had some different things in it.  Formula is really expensive, so I was glad to get it!  Did you know that generic formula brands are just as good as the brand names?  I checked with the doctor on this, and they had no problem with me switching to the generic.  It’s a huge cost savings – sometimes almost twice as much formula for the same amount of cashola!
