Babies don't always finish their bottles and we all know the contents are liquid gold. What's safe?
When considering food safety, feeding baby with infant formula can sometimes be a daunting task. We have to consider the formula’s temperature, amounts to feed, measurements and how long the formula will last. Everything will come together and you’ll quickly become a pro at preparing your baby’s bottles! Let’s go over the safety measures you should take for determining how long until your baby’s prepared formula will go bad.
When you’re just starting out as a breastfeeding mom, the idea of pumping and storing breast milk can seem overwhelming. After all, you’re already dealing with exhaustion and recovering from birth. If you’re on maternity leave, maybe you feel pressed for time to learn how to pump and start to build your freezer stash of milk.
The good news is that creating a freezer stash can be done little by little, and you can make it a simple addition to your daily routine. It’s okay not to have a month’s worth of breast milk stored. Any small amount you can save will be helpful.
