How Many Months Has The Formula Been Opened?
Hello doctor … Incidentally my baby is 9 months … But there is no 7kg bb … I see in the KMS book that is still the normal limit … thank God full breast .. But I want to be interrupted by the milk powder too .. The thing is my appetite hasn’t been too good … So I’m afraid of lacking nutrition … Yesterday I tried to give you milk … thank you, God … But because yesterday I coughed a cold so I stopped … I want to continue my milk yesterday. I doubt it .. The problem is already open .. And I read in the package must be exhausted within 1 month .. Is it OK can I just throw it away? Oh yeah, the milk powder is stored in the refrigerator, okay? Thank you in advance …
Hello Munarahma, thanks for the question to HealthReplies.com
Powdered formula milk will only last for 1 month when the formula milk packaging has been opened. Therefore, if it has been 1 month since you opened the formula milk, you should not give it again to your child. Powdered formula milk basically only needs to be stored in a cool, dry place. You don't need to store it in the refrigerator if the temperature in your house is cool enough. However, if the temperature of your house is too hot and humid, you may only store powdered milk formula in the refrigerator. Even if it is stored in the refrigerator, you still cannot give powdered formula milk that has been opened for more than 1 month.
Related to your child's weight, his weight is still normal even though it is below the average age of his age. In addition to monitoring his current weight, you also have to monitor his weight gain every month. If you see that your child's body weight has not gone up well 2 months in a row, or you see the growth curve in the KMS starting to look horizontal (not following the curve even cutting the curve), then you should immediately take your child to the pediatrician to get further evaluation. This is very important for you to do to ensure your child's growth and development is good and there is no further growth disruption.
So much information from me, hopefully enough answer
