small amounts of formula Rss

Hi guys

Does anyone know if you can buy formula (preferably s26) is a container smaller than the 900g from the supermarket.

I want to get some (just in case) but the tin says use within 4 weeks and there is no way we would get through that big can in that time.

Thanks

Steph

Hey Steph!! It does seem like a waste to buy such a big tin if half of it is going to go to waste! I don't know about the supermarket, but when we first started using formula, we got S26 in a small tin from the chemist!! But now that bub is half breast and half formula fed, there's no prob's going through a 900gm tin ... we practically use a tin a week!! How is Bennet doing?

hey steph!!
I checked out the website! He's a little angel. I'm back at work part-time, else I'd still be solely breastfeeding sad But at the moment Brandon has three breastfeeds and three bottles a day ... not to mention farex for breakfast, and fruit for lunch smile Did you find the smaller tins?? Are you doing breast and formula feeds too??

Most of the brands seem to have small boxes of sachets. I bought one of these with my first child as a for just in case, and as you only open the one you need they will be fine until expiry date.
It's an expensive way to do it if you are going to need them often, but for a backup they are great. I didn't need to use them, so will have to check the expiry date b4 the new baby arrives.
From memory I got mine from the local supermarket.
