Our Parenting Formula

Parenting is a learn as you go kind of gig. Experience is definitely the best teacher. You can read every parenting book out there (and trust me I did), but they can only prepare you for so much. each child is different, each situation is different, and each family is different.


There is no one size fits all parenting formula. You have to find your own formula that works for your family. I send my kids to public school. That isn't for everyone. I used disposable diapers, some people use cloth, and some people use both. I breastfed both of my babies and used formula with my youngest when he needed it. You have to do what works for you and your family. Our parenthood formula is happiness. What works for one child may not work for the other and what works at one age may (and most likely will) change as they get older.


Every parent has a special formula for how they balance it all: family, work, and "me time". Store Brand Formula wants you to share your unique formula for parenthood happiness with their emoji keyboard and you could win $1,000 and a year’s supply of store brand infant formula between now and April 24, 2017! Store Brand Formula is nutritionally comparable to nationally advertised brands, but costs up to 50% less. It’s called formula for a reason.

  4. Like you've discovered, each child is so different and what works with one, doesn't work with another...they change as they grow, so I find it's important to get to know them and accept them as they change. I breastfed all three, encourage their individual interests, and try not to compare.

  7. Very true i have 2 kids and theyre both VERY different. They do try to "try" your patience and see what they can get away with. I was never really around kids much until i had my own so i knew nothing lol. I had to learn on my own and we try to tell them about being nice to others no matter what color any one is to never be a bully and always be friendly to everyone except strangers i can say they try my patience sometimes but we have very good kids and i am so proud of them
