Formula in a bottle (no ice packs or anything) is that good for two hours? What about 4?

Does it depend on the brand of formula?

  • It does not matter what brand, once you mix it, you should use it within two hours or refridgerate.

  • It should be used right away if it is not refrigerated. If you need to carry formula for trips, Similac sells liquid single serving bottles that do not need to be refrigerated until opened. You just attach a nipple to the top or pour into a bottle. I always carried a few in case for my Son.
