easy formula storage?

hey gals, have any of you found a easy way or product to store formula powder in ready use measurements? I always get messy with the scoop and I think that having it premeasured in sealed invidual container would be sooo much easier! TIA

  • They sell a divided container at Wal-Mart and Babies R Us xD It has three compartments that'll hold up to four scoops of formula (or eight ounces, you know). I think it was $2.99 at Wal-Mart. Babies R Us probably has a bigger choice of colors, though. All you do is pop the top and pour in the formula :D

  • They sell formula dispensers at Target and probably Walmart, Burlington, etc. too. They are round and have 3 compartments, and the lid has one opening. You just twist the lid to whatever compartment and can dump out your premeasured formula into the bottle or whatever.

    Look up formula dispenser at

  • I've seen premeasured formula at Target, Walmart, Giant Eagle,ect. Look in the formula section. I forgot how many packets come in a box but even though its a little pricey, they are great for diaper bags and travel.

  • You could always pour it into baggies and store it that way, or maybe buy some small containers and store it in them, those divided things don't work that well. I use to just pour the formula in the bottles and then add water when needed. Good luck.
