Period Of Drinking Formula Milk That Has Been Opened?
Noon Please inform me … if the baby formula milk that has been opened for 0 months must be used / spent for how long yes. Thank you
Good morning, thanks for asking at HealthReplies.com. Indeed, in medicine, especially in the form of liquid, the expiration date if it has not been opened is according to what is stated on the package and if it has been opened, it should be consumed within a month and thereafter, you should replace the new drug even though the expiration date listed is still long. Because it's expiration date before the drug is exposed to outside air.
But this is not the case for formula milk in powder form. As long as you follow the recommended storage, close it tightly and keep it away from direct sunlight, the expiration date will follow those printed on the packaging, and it doesn't matter if it's not hurriedly spent. But it also doesn't mean you have to postpone it. The point is enough to be used properly, and there should be no problems.
We also need to remind, that the best nutrition for babies up to 6 months is breast milk, and there is no debate about it because this has been an agreement of all doctors since long ago based on various studies. If you give your child formula, especially at the age of 1 month, it should be because it is recommended by the doctor because there are certain medical reasons. If it is not for certain medical reasons determined by the doctor, and only because of personal reasons such as appearance, lack of time or so on, you are missing out on the great benefits and protection that can be given to your baby. Also read about breast milk. So, hopefully answering your question.
