ditching my cheap rat bastard ways

I’m pretty frugal. Blame my immigrant stock. The hospital I went to gave all the babies Similac formula, the most pricey formula on the market (like $30 per bucket of powder, man). It’s pretty smart business–Similac then has a monopoly as the formula brand of choice for all families, but you get all kinds of samples at home, including the cheaper Enfamil. I was advised by one of the daycare centers I visited to not switch brands, because it can mess with your baby’s digestive system, but did I listen? OH no. I hate throwing anything out and part of me was like, really? Isn’t it all the same stuff?

After days of continual digestive issues and an afternoon of major vomiting, I apologized to Sasquatch and am going back to the pricey stuff.
