  • I thought they last 3 hours in the fridge...I would ask the doctor or someone who knows more than our opinions. It should say on the label of the can...

  • Yes! I always premake my son's formula. They last 24-48 hours in the fridge. Usually I make a bulk batch when my son goes to bed. It's such a lifesaver.

  • Also just an idea to pass your way. For the diaper bag we would take a couple of bottles with water in it and then put the amount of formula needed in a little tiny jewelry sized ziplock baggie (got them at the craft store)! That way we were able to mix formula fresh on the go.
