    does a tub of formula last?

    i bought one, thinking it would be more economical than opening 2 cartons a day when of each one she only eats 100ml- but just noticed it says discard the tin after 4 weeks.

    at the moment im making one or two 4-scoop feeds a day, i might increase this to 3 4-scoop feeds in a couple of weeks if i drop the morning breast-feed, but im not switching the nite-feeds (i cant be arsed making up formula at 3am when i got milk in my chest!) so at the most ill be using 12 scoops a day by mid january.

    am i gonna be wasting loads? :(

    is it safe in reality to keep powder longer than 4 weeks?

    Maddisons on aptamil 1st and it says after 4 weeks it must be thrown away.

    I would say though it would be cheaper for you to stay on the powered milk then going onto the already made cartons.

    cause there might be a time when your dd wants more milk or another situation arrives .

    Maddison has just stopped wanting her 10pm feed which means she having 3 7oz bottle feeds a day
