How long can you use a tin of formula for? Lock Rss

is it 4-6weeks after opening?
I think 4 weeks...it should be written on the tin somewhere...

I used to write the date to toss it on the side to help me remember...
I used to do the same, I used to write a date when I opened the can on the top of it so I know when to chuck it out.

Now I am lucky if it lasts me a week.
They last for 1 month from opening.
Bugger! Why cant they be used any longer?

Well like any food it will only last for so long but apparently with powdered formula in particular it's got to do with the nutritional properties only being 'guaranteed' for that period of time; so apparently the vitamins and other nutrients are starting to degrade after 4 weeks. I personally wouldn't use a tin past 4 weeks even if there wasn't any 'harm' in doing so, but I know someone who will.
