My 16 week old mindee has been with me since 7 weeks old and mum has always provided me with those ready made cartons of milk. Ever since this started, she's provided me with one big carton and a couple of the 7oz sized cartons so that I can use them when out and about.
Early on, I noticed one small hungry baby carton so I said to mum 'oh, they're on hungry baby milk now then' and she replied 'no, i just couldn't find any of the normal sort in that size so just grabbed what I could'.
Well, my knowledge of formula feeding isn't great as I BF ds but I've been advised that you shouldn't give hungry baby milk unless they really are a hungry baby, especially not to mix the types of feeds.
Anyway, ever since this started, I have left the hungry baby cartons and managed to get by with the other sort supplied BUT, I now have several small cartons of the hungry baby milk sitting in my cupboard. Now I've run out of the smaller sized correct formula, I'm worried about when I'm out and about as I need to have the smaller size. I did think about just buying the correct sort myself but then I could end up doing this all the time and I don't see why I should pay for it.
Sooooo........what would you do? Do I give them back to mum and say that it's not good for baby? I hate all this stuff. I don't want to annoy or upset the mum but we're supposed to look out for the children's interests too aren't we.
Please give me some advice!
