Toddlers: 12 - 24 Months

Powdered milk

Does anyone use powdered whole milk instead of liquid whole milk for LO? Is it ok for a 1 yr old? I don't like wasting the liquid milk that LO does not drink each week.

Re: Powdered milk

  • Buy a half gallon instead of a full gallon if you feel like you're wasting too much.  Also, unless your LO needs to gain weight, 2% milk or even skim milk is fine for them to drink.

  • Go to a store that sells quarts then. I do admit I'm surprised you go through less than a half gallon a week with a toddler. Dd isn't even a big milk drinker and we use way more than that.

    Also, milk doesn't automatically go bad at a week, sm

  • My sister told me the reason plastic milk jugs have those indentions on the side is because they are there for you to freeze the milk.  She read about it online and froze milk just in case during a snowstorm and she said the milk thawed fine.  J

  • I don't, but my sister does. She used to freeze gallons and gallons of milk, but it was taking up too much space in her deep freezer. Now she uses powdered milk almost exclusively. She has 5 young children and lives pretty remotely.
