We have decided to ttc number 2 in the new year. I was thinking I should go and buy some
Folic acid but then remembered I had some in the cupboard from last time. I had a look and it says best before end jan 2013. So I would be ok taking it until then wouldn't I? It should I buy new stuff? Feel a bit Sorry for the future baby if it's already getting hand me Downs as ridiculous as that sounds!

Its in date. If you've stored it correctly (ie sensible temperature, not damp), take it!
DS2 was very lucky - we bought him some new babygrows to wear in the hospital, but he's pretty much hand hand me down everything else! He doesn't know!

It's n date so it's fine. And folic acid has nothing to do with Down's Syndrome. It's taken to reduce the risk of spina bifida.

Folic acid is v cheap so if you are bothered, just replace it.

I didn't mean to refer to downs syndrome I
meant hand-me-downs but my phone capitalised it for some reason
