    Default How many days does your formula last???

    Hi,

    We are possibly about to switch my 10 month old to full time formula. We have done occassional formula feeds since 5 months old, but this is the 1st tin (we use Karicare Gold) we will have finished and it was opened 10days ago.

    So I was just wondering how many feeds do you usually get out of a tin? Or maybe how many days is it that you find you open the next?

    We will be on 3 feeds a day, currently doing 2 a day (with an EBM at night) and we probably have about 1/3 left of the tin (at day 10). I was just thinking of stocking up on a few tins whilst I see they are on special somewhere this week, but wouldn't want too many as we plan to switch to cows milk in about 7 weeks.

    Thanks in Advance,

    Mia is on 5 feeds a day (200ml = 4 scoops) and it lasts us about 5-6days.

    Geez, we only get 4-5 days for ours (Karicare HA). He does have 5-6 bottles a day, but they are only 100-150 ml each.
