    Default Formula Feeding Moms

    Does anyone know any tricks to keep a opened container of formula "fresh" longer? I mostly nurse, but I'm currently too lazy to pump, so I bought some formula for my mom to give Reid when she watches him (about three times a week while I run.) So, he's getting like 3 formula bottles a week, tops. I was looking at the formula container today, and it said that once it's opened it's only good for a month, which means I'm going to have to throw most of it away soon and buy a whole new one. That seems like such a waste! Is there anything I can do (I don't know, refrigerate or air tight bags or something?) that would keep it fresh longer? I know you can also buy those individual serving pre-mixed bottles but he has to have soy and I haven't seen them in soy. I bought the smallest container they had, but it's still mostly going to be wasted. Boo!

    I'm assuming you're talking about the premixed stuff, right? Are you opposed to powder? I believe they make little packs of powder that are single serve.

    No, I am currently using powder. I've never seen any individual packs of powder. I didn't know that exists! Thanks for the tip; I will look for some of those.

    Something like this.

    I'm not sure how easy it would be to find them in soy.

    Thanks again! I will definitely see if I can find something like that in soy. I hate throwing away an almost full can of formula! That stuff is too expensive to waste! I wish I had someone close by that was formula feeding and using soy so I could give it away and atleast know it would get used.
