    similac much cheaper on Aruba

    I was not aware until I took my daughter to live with us in Aventura while mom was there for medical treatment, but Similac products are MUCH cheaper on Aruba. The price in US$ is the Aruba price in Afl., thus about 1.75 more than what I pay on Aruba (US$ 12 is Afl. 21, I pay about Afl. 12 on Aruba!).
    The price on Aruba is part of basic products price regulation, including such products as bread, rice and oil.
    I would almost say "stock up" if I were not aware of how much extra baggage one has when traveling with a little one.

    yes here i the USA
    Similac and other baby formula brands are very high priced.
    That makes it terribly difficult for those that are low in funds.
    Here in my town, they keep the baby formula (all of the brands) in a locked case to prevent theft.
    Tragic in this country that stuff like that is so expensive.

    So we can buy them there rather than bringing them with us.
