  • Yes. I believe the packaging says 2-3 days. My day care's rule was no more than 2 days.

  • As long as your baby didn't eat out of the jar directly, you can save it sealed for 2-3 days. If baby ate out of the jar and not a different container, then odds are, there is baby saliva in it which causes bacteria to breed and you should toss it.
