who has used both? I have used powder since the begining and was thinking of trying concetrate. Is it really that more expensive? I know when you look at the initial price tag it seems very expensive but is it really? how long does a case last? Is it true that most lo's eat less as it is thicker and more filling?

I don't know about them eating less, it was the same in my experience. I started out using the concentrate formula and it is a bit more expensive but it is not extreme if you calculate how many bottles or ounces you get with each for the price. Just look on the label and it will say how many bottles it will make and figure out the difference. My son ate the same whether it was liquid or the powder. I don't think makes a difference because you add water to it anyway as directions state. Now they also have ready to serve formula that is not concentrated and you don't add water or anything and that is substantially more expensive.

Well in the formula i get the concertrate is more then the power and the powder last longer. and on the concentrate trent would only eat 2 oz every 2 hours now he takes 6 to 8 oz. every 4 to 5 hours, thats on powder...im using nutrmagin...

I hear that the soy and hypo formula 's are way more thinner. We used soy for a while and i found it thinner then the milk based formula. where does it say how many bottles it makes on the can? I can't find it.

On the powder formula it says how many bottles it makes. On the concentrated stuff you have to figure it out. If you mix it half water half formula, you just look at the oz on the can and multiply by two and that's how many ounces it will make and divide that by how many oz your lo is eating and figure out how many bottles that will make and compare it with the powder. Say if the can contains 12oz of concentrate: if the mix is half water half concentrate then you'll actually get 24 oz of formula and say your lo is going through 4oz every feeding divide 24 by 4 and you'll find that the can of formula will give you six bottles. This is an example: I don't remember exactly what the mixture is and how many oz each can contains, you'll just to look and figure it out it's been a while since we used it.
