Liquid baby formula offers complete nutrition for infants. CVS carries a selection of top rated baby formula products, so moms can choose what works best for them and their little ones. Ready to feed formula is a convenient option for moms on the go. For those busy mornings where you have to run right out the door with baby, premixed formula can be a life saver! Ready to feed formula comes fully prepared and requires no mixing or preparation. Products like Similac On the Go that are prepackaged in single serving bottles are great for day trips. Try ready to use formula the next time you are travelling with your baby to reduce hassle and worry! Liquid formula available in single serving bottles is also great for busy days when you’re in a rush and need to pack your baby bag quickly. Just be sure to talk to your child’s pediatrician about what options are best for your baby and always follow proper formula safety and storage guidelines.
When unopened, liquid baby formula bottles and jugs are shelf stable and do not require refrigeration. However, once you’ve opened a bottle, you should discard any unused formula left over – you cannot reuse it. If your baby has started drinking a bottle of liquid formula but doesn’t finish within the hour, you should discard the leftovers. For liquid baby formula that comes in larger jugs, once you’ve opened it, you can keep the container covered tightly in the refrigerator for up to 48 hours. After that, throw it out. It can be a good idea to familiarize yourself with the symptoms of foodborne illness, which include diarrhea and vomiting. Call your doctor immediately if you notice any of these signs or if you suspect that your baby has consumed spoiled formula. If your little one is frequently fussy or gassy after eating, try switching from a regular pre made infant formula to a sensitive baby formula, such as Similac Sensitive Formula. This may help alleviate baby’s digestive difficulties. If the problem doesn’t improve, however, you should talk to your child’s pediatrician.
