Costco vs Sams Club Baby Formula

30 July 2009 7 Comments

costco_vs_samsAfter being in the daycare business for over 25 years, I have decided to start supplying the formula for my daycare children. Costco is under “Kirkland brand” and Sam’s Club is under “Members Mark”.

Information that I have found is that Members Mark is a little bit harder to mix up. Kirkland and Members Mark are basically the same ingredients as Similac or Infamil. They both are government approved.

Cost wise Costco formula is about .35 cents an ounce and Sam’s Club was about .45 cents an ounce. On the Costco website it has great reviews so I think I will try the Costco Brand.

For a free sample of  Members mark Formula:   www.membersmarkformula.com/free_sample.aspx

I also came across a free sample from Wal Mart’s parents choice formula:  www.parentschoiceformula.com/sample-milk-baby-formula.aspx

Does  anyone have any opinions on using any of these formulas?
