Advice on the current health and safety regulations on storing and freezing formula milk
Current guidelines suggest that you should not store formula milk for any length of time as it may be unsafe. This is because formula milk power is not sterile and when mixed into a solution may allow bacteria to grow if not consumed immediately.
Instead it is advisable to carry a seperate thermos flask containing boiled water and only mix the milk powder with the water just before a feed. Additionally, you should dispose of any surplus milk after a feed as it is not safe to use again.
