hipp organic formula is cheaper than a lot of the other formulas. and the follow on milks for 6 months plus are often cheaper than the first formulas IIRC.

My local clinic always sold formula at a very reduced rate but apparently the government has stopped them selling it

that is out of date info now.

Google "Healthy Start" and you will see what the current arrangements are.

One of the aims of moving the formula out of the baby clinics is that to see HCPs handing out formula and at the same time trying to help struggling mums breastfeed was rather a contradiction!
