Storing Your Formula

  • Keep powdered formula lids and scoops on clean areas
  • Close containers of powdered infant formula as soon as possible
  • If you do not plan to use the prepared formula right away, put it in the refrigerator immediately and use within 24 hours
  • When in doubt, throw it out. If you can’t remember how long you have kept formula in the refrigerator, it is safer to throw it out than to feed it to your baby.
