Oh, Baby!

This is a Sponsored post written by me on behalf of PBM Products. All opinions are 100% mine.

Strange population shifts going on in Mendham Township, New Jersey...people seem to have stopped making babies about five years ago.  In September of every new school year, Mendham Township Elementary School has welcomed about 80 new kindergartners and sends about 80 fifth graders and their huge backpacks off to the Middle School.  This year, only 45 kindergartners showed up!  It has really wreaked havoc on the systems in place...there are now only three sections of kindergarten instead of the usual four, and with five sections of fourth grade, London's class was forced to choose their Book Buddies from a first grade class.  So this morning, London headed off to school to read Strega Nona's Harvest (with expression!) to a little first grader named Libby.

So I ask you, where have all the babies gone?  Will they return next year, or is it a trend in Mendham that started before the depression recession and will continue to deplete our supply of kindergartners?

Maybe one way to get back to the business of baby-making despite the economy is to save money, starting with infant formula.  All infant formulas sold in the United States are subject to the same regulations of the Infant Formula Act which governs manufacturing and ingredients.  So store brand formula, while value priced, must meet the same exacting FDA nutritional requirements as all the major advertised brands.  That's nutritional equivalence for babies and substantial savings for moms....private label formula typically costs up to 50 percent less compared with brand names.  That could save a family $600/year per baby.

So what are you waiting for, Mendham?  Let's get back to babies!
