There has been discussion about how long formula is good for. We all know what the scientists say, but most of us have broken there "rule" of throwing it out.

Just out of curiosity... do you keep a bottle of formula if your baby has drank out of it but not finished it?

It depends how little she has drank - if she has only taken about 1oz or something, I would try her again in half hour then discard. If she has drank most of it, I discard immediately. This is often the case with her bottles
