I'm sure I've seen them, but agree that they're not so common as other brands...

definitely used to do them...not sure it they do anymore...

They do the cartons in Aptimil First, Extra and Forward (Forward are on a 3 for 2 offer at Boots and Sainsburys).

I always use these when I'm out and about and just take a pre-sterilized bottle with me - easier than taking the 3 compartment powder thing with me. DD now will drink stright from the carton (means I don't have to take a flask of hot water) as she is used to drinking water from a cup - hurrah! HTH

The Aptimil cartons I bought yesterday are best before 08-02-06 - think I may have used them by then!

I always buy mine in Sainsburys. They definitely have First and Extra whenever I go in.
