Can anyone tell me what is the best place to get baby formula at a cheap price? Any wholesale place? I don't mind buying them in bulk since 1 case only last about 2 week.
What brand? We usually get ours from Walmart because they carry Nestle Goodstart.

Food basics. I buy this regular formula as my daughter is allergic to cow's milk, and it's $18.99 at food basics, while at Walmart and Shoppers it's $20.99. Rexall (near my work downtown in the Path) is $22.99!

My doctor said brand doesn't matter, buy the cheapest Iron fortified formula, they are all the same nutrition since they are regulated by Health Canada. Ended up buy Walmart one since Costco one is too big, baby cannot eat that much in 1 months. (all formula says it must be used within 1 month or tossed). Not sure whether to believe this, might be a gimmick to buy more...

What? Is it powdered? Powdered formula lasts forever as long as you store it properly in a dry place.

If it's ready-to-eat or concentrate, those have expiration dates on them, but even then they typical last about 6 months unless you open them (in which case you have to use it all within 24-48 hours).

All powdered formula says use within 1 month of opening, not sure if it is BS but better to be safe.

Rate is high but absolutely no way it's 99%.
