The date stamped on baby formula is a "best before" date, not an expiration date.
On average, our formulas are best between 6 to 12 months from the date of purchase.
Baby formulas have a "best before" date stamped on the packaging which is approximately one year from the manufactured date. Feeding formula after this date is generally not recommended. It's not a safety concern, it's a concern of nutrient degradation. After the date of the stamp is reached, nutrients in the formula will start to degrade. Your baby's consumption of nutrients is important in the early stages of development. It's always best to order up to 6 months in advance.
If the date of the "best before" stamp is less than 4 months, the exact date will be explicitly listed in a bold red font as the first line for the product's description.
Think your "best before" date has passed or is approaching very soon? Please read this article.
It's best to be safe than sorry! Don't feed anything to your baby that you don't feel comfortable eating yourself! Never discard of baby formula however as it may be requested for further inspection.
