Hi all

Planning a trip to the DR with my 7 months old. I would like to know what kind of baby formula is available in the DR and where also how much should I expect to pay?

Thanks

Isabelle

I took a can of powder formula from home. Just added bottled water to it. I felt more comfortable not changing their formula while away from home.

Hi Trig

I am bringing some but will be away for 3 weeks so I rather ask now then be there and run out.

Thanks everyone else too for the fast answers

We did the same thing when we took our grandson to Santo Domingo - brought several cans of powder formula in our carry ons. We were told by family there to only use Aqua Orbis [brand of water] to mix the formula - they sell it in all the supermarkets right along with the baby food & formula. It comes in gallon size, reasonable.

FYI,
The problem that I had was with baby food. I couldn't find anything other than fruit. No meat or pasta. Needless to say, after fruit for 4 days, the memory of what came out of that boy at the Atlanta airport will live with me forever! You may want to pack enough entree's for your baby and not worry about the fruit, there is plenty of that available.
