Single serve packets

I know enfamil has them, do any other brands? Or do they just have single rtf bottles? Just getting my options in order in case I start supplementing. I most likely would not use enough of a big can before you're supposed to so even though the single serve is more $ it might be a better choice for me.

Not sure how old you lo is but I wouldn't personally use powder anyways. I know it's more expensive but powder cannot be sterilized like liquid can. When you see recalls it usually/always powder.
Liquid concentrate would be a good middle of the road.

Re: Single serve packets

Similac has single serve packets, used them with my son once in a while and I loved them for convience. Sadly my son really couldn't do powder so we did RTF most of the time.

Re: Single serve packets

I only have real experience with Similac. I greatly preferred these when supplementing at first in really small amounts:

They are 8 ounce ready to feeds and you need to use up the 8oz in I think 48 hours which is totally do-able.

I stopped breastfeeding at around 4 weeks - I only made less than 4oz per day so we were supplementing really early on. I found that my son couldn't flip back and forth between breastmilk and a non-gentle formula (Similac Sensitive but Enfamil makes one called Gentlease).

I keep one in the diaper bag as well with an Avent bottle. I don't leave my diaper bag in the car so it's not subject to heat.

If I need to supplement again when I have a baby next time, I will definitely be buying a lot of these again.

Re: Single serve packets

Similac has 4 oz instant packets of formula, like crystal light. If your baby is eating 4 or 8 oz, they are super convenient!
