Lil Tip: Formula Packets on the Go

For moms in a pinch, getting a bottle of breast milk or scooping out formula isn't easy.

For months, I packed formula in zip-lock bags or in the bottles, but they weren't great options. Zip-locks are good for toting Cheerios, but getting powder out of them isn't easy. And if you pre-load a bottle with formula, it clumps to the bottom of the bottle, which will leave you shaking it for minutes.

That's when I found the Enfamil and Similac formula packs on the go and was beyond excited. Each packet makes 4 oz. of milk. All you have to do is tear off the top and pour the powder into a bottle of water. Since discovering these, I always keep a few packets and bottles in my bag. When it's time to eat, I just pour water in the bottle, add the packet and shake it up. They make traveling (and life) so much easier.

These were so great to throw in my bag and go. I breastfed and gave formula so the extra expense wasn't too painful. I also got free samlples of them from the company through there website!

These are nice but considerably more expensive then the big tin.

These were actually around when I had my son 9 years ago and I loved them. I would keep a few in the diaper bag at all times. The nice thing about the packets is they would stay sealed and fresh for long periods of time.

these are nice to have in a pinch but it's so much more cost effective to buy the formula dish with three compartments that you featured.

these are a lifesaver! when lil Pee Dee was still on the bottle and drinking formula I would often find myself dropping into a grocery to pick up a few packets when I ran out of formula in the dispenser can . they are so super easy and i love that they're pre measured, no mess!
