Buyer Beware

Warning: Use caution when feeding babies soy formula.

The other day I stocked up on clearance baby formula at Walmart. It was marked down to $8.00 a can, regularly priced at $11.88. I had never used soy formula before but bought it anyway to save $15.52. When I opened the can I was immediately aware of the hazards of soy formula and realized that Walmart perhaps clearanced it to help speed up rotation. Now here is where you are probably thinking I am going to tell you that soy formula contains trace amounts of lead, causes early breast development and unibrows. Not the case. I just wanted to warn all mothers that soy formula stinks to high heaven! If I had paid full price I would've returned the the remaining three cans, but I got such a good deal that I fed it to my baby anyway, despite the fact that her bottle smelled like liquid farts. So to those who might be contemplating the benefits of soy formula, I advise that it is only beneficial if the can is on clearance. If you decide to use it, be prepared to gag your way through feedings and bottle cleanings and beware that bottle feedings won't be any more pleasant than diaper changes. Now you can't say I didn't warn you. Please pass this warning along to any mothers you know.
