Following on from last week’s video clip, How to Prepare Bellamy’s Organic Infant Formula, I’m sharing some Formula Hints & Tips with you on getting the best from our formula products and answering some questions we’re frequently asked by our customers.
If your baby is solely formula fed, one tin of our formulas should last approximately 1 week. But may last longer or less time depending on just how hungry your baby is.
But what if I’m breast feeding and supplementing with formula and I may not use a whole tin within 4 weeks of opening, I here you ask… Well then, you’ll be happy to know that our formula can be frozen for up to 3 months – in powder form, not made-up. Have a look at this video clip to find out how to freeze our formula correctly.
No, you can’t. If you’re going out for the day and you want to feed your baby formula while you’re out, you need to take the milk powder and water separately. Don’t take made up formula. Find out why and how to prepare formula on the go in this video clip.
In short, yes. Any changes in diet will cause changes at the other end, just like adults. Babies that are transitioning from breast milk to formula will show changes in the frequency and colour of their poos. I’ll tell you why in this video clip.

•The World Health Organisation recommends that breastfeeding is best for your baby.
•Having a balanced diet when breastfeeding is also important. Baby formulas should only be used after you’ve sought advice from a doctor or health practitioner.
•A decision not to breastfeed can be difficult to reverse and introducing partial bottle feeding will reduce the supply of breast milk. It is also wise to consider the cost of infant formula.
•If you use infant formula, all preparation and feeding instructions must be followed as per the manufacturer’s instructions. This is important for your baby’s health.
