Baby Food Safety: How to know if your baby's milk and supplements are fresh and usable?

Baby food if not eaten immediately will spoil or have nutrition value reduced over time. The bacteria in the saliva contaminates food and causes of spoilage. Leftover milk is best not kept for a second round.

Let's check out how much time each item has before it should be thrown out.

Leftover Milk in bottle: 1-4 hours
If the child does not finish after 1 hour of mixing, it should be thrown away immediately. In case a baby does not drink any of it, it can be kept in the refrigerator for up to 4 hours.

Breastfeeding (bottle pump): 1-4 hours
For breastfeeding milk in bottle, at normal room temperature, it can be used up to 1 hour. It can be refrigerated for 4 hours immediately after expressing.

Supplements (Instant Eat Type): 48 Hours
Check the expiration date of the packaging.

Opened Formula: 1 month
Even if the expiration date is longer, an open formula can should not be kept after a month of opening. Use a spoon that is completely dry. And most importantly, the container must be clean, opaque, with a lid closed. Beware of rust in the can.

Food infections are common cause of infections in baby. Follow strict hygiene routines for all baby accessories used for feeding. If your baby seems to be distress, immediately connect with her pediatrician.
