  • if you are feeding her straight out of the container, you aren't supposed to reuse it, but I always did without any problems.

    if you're worried about it though, just put 1/2 of what you fix in a different container and feed her out of that.

  • It says on the jar it needs to be eaten within a day or two...and if you feed her while your out, like open a jar while your in the mall or the hot car, i probably wouldnt reuse it!

  • i'm sorry, but how on earth is your 3 month old ready for food? you can really hurt her stomach, if not immediately, but in the long run. i would re-think that decision.
