A Price Survey of Milk Brands for Babies 1-3 Years


Depending on the baby's age, there are different types of milk.  There are infant formulas from birth, follow-on formulas for babies more than 6 months, and toddler milk drinks for babies 1 to 3 years. Our little girl will be turning one in a month's time, and this means it's time to switch from her current follow-on formula to a toddler milk. Hubby and I were at the supermarket this morning and I was able to squeeze in a quick price survey. Thought of sharing them here. :)

In no particular order:

Price Survey done at SM Supermarket, SM Southmall.
Date: Today, February 27, 2016.
Some photos do not match the actual SKU size I surveyed so it's better
to refer to the caption than the picture. ;)

Enfagrow A+ for 1-3 Years
1.2 kg for PhP 1,219.00
Nan Optipro for 12-36 Months
1.3 kg for PhP 1,054.50
(There's also a Nan Optipro HW 1.4kg  for PhP 1,462.50)
Similac Gain Plus for 1-3 Years
1.7 kg for PhP 1,529.50
Progress Gold for 1-3 Years
1.8 kg for PhP 1,609.50
Promil Kid for 1-3 Years
1.8 kg for PhP 1,389.50

Nido Junior for 1-3 Years
1.6 kg for PhP 749.50
Lactum for 1-3 Years
1.6 kg for PhP 794.50
BonaKid for 1-3 Years
1.6 kg for PhP 914.50
Bear Brand Jr. for 1-3 Years
1.2 kg for PhP 474.50
Nestogen for 12-36 Months
1.3 kg for PhP 544.50
Alactagrow for 1-3 Years
1.2 kg for PhP 584.50
Hipp Organic for 1-3 Years
900g for P1,025.00
(Not sold in SM where I did the survey. Got this price today at Mercury
when we dropped by to purchase Hipp 6-12 mos. for Lia.)


As you could see, the SKU sizes mentioned above differ.  To judge the prices easily, below is the apples-to-apples comparison using each brand's cost for every 100g. Arranged from the most to the least expensive:



Waaaah, I just realized now how expensive Hipp Organic is!!! But at present, it's the only milk that agrees with Lia's tummy so that she doesn't get constipated (as shared in this previous post). :( I might need to still cross over to Hipp when she turns one, we'll see.  When her digestive system becomes more mature (when she's 1 and a half, perhaps?) I'll try if she's already good with a different milk. I wish I wish I wish! *fingers crossed*  Again, at the end of the day, it is what's hiyang with our baby that matters. You're one lucky parent if your kid is not as sensitive and you have the luxury of choice. 

Anyway, that's it for my price survey today! :) Hope this helps.


Cheers,

    1. It does not matter mommy, any milk pwede e substitute but it depends on baby's sensitivity. Baka di hiyang ang baby mo sa ibang milk :)

  2. Have you tried looking at Pediasure yet? I find that formula works best for my little ones. It's reasonably priced and provides reliable results. My babies always respond well to it and I've been happy with the results so far :)

    1. Our pedia also recommended Friso when Hipp stopped working for Lia. :) So far, it agrees with her tummy. Maybe you can try that, too. :)

  16. Yung baby ko 1 year old. Palagi din constipated sa lactum until we switch her milk to pediasure. 3 months na nya milk, and by then yung poops nya is sobrag okay na plus gusting gusto nya yung lasa kasi matamis. and it's true nakakagain talaga ng weight. medyo expensive kasi yung 1.7 is almost 10 days lang.

  20. Mommy Grace

    Nan is good as per my Baby Celestine. She's 18 months now. I switched to Promil thinking that she might have enough of Nan's taste. Even if I wanted her to drink EnfagrowA+, the problem was she doesn't like the taste.

    1. try nyo po bigyan ng Propan Appetite(white box) yung may Buclizine po for 3mos, para gumana ang kain nya, tapos palitan mo every month ang multivitamins nya na isabay mo sa Propan Appetite nya, like Clusivol, Polyvisol, or Nutrillin partnered with Pedzinc or Ceelin Plus po.. Kasi Pediasure ang anak ko eh.. Gumana na kain at tulog nya ng binigyan ko ng vitamins na ito, tas pinag palit palit ko monthly. I dont stick to one brand. Except for Propan Appetite (Buclizine) kasi for 3mos xa eh. Hope this will help you..

  27. Good day, Ms. Joycee!

    I am grateful to have found your blog since it helped me a lot in choosing the best milk formula for my dearest daughter.

    I am in the edge of quitting breastfeeding na kasi since she's 1 year old now. Your blog really helped me find the best options. Thanks btw for the comparison you showed us. It was a very crucial information.

    Again, Thank you. More content in the future.

    Love,
    Chao T
