Mum shares hack for always packing the right amount of formula when going out – and people can't believe they never knew | The Sun

A FIRST-TIME mum has shared her hack to always packing the right amount of formula when you’re feeding on the go.

And her trick is also the best way to stop losing your baby bottle caps.


Kia Matthews took to Tik Tok to share her hack which is “great for consolidating” and keeps your formula and bottle together in one place. 

The content creator places a ziplock plastic bag over the top of the cup and scoops the formula into the bag.

Once that’s done, she places the bottle cap back on while the little bag is still folded over the edges of the cup.

Once the cap is secured, she zips the bag over the teet of the bottle.

The hack means that she can pour water into the cup before formula as recommended by experts.

Once the boiling water is in she can pour the powder out of the bag and into the bottle. 

The 25-year-old was inundated with comments of praise, but some questioned why she didn’t just use a formula dispenser

One person penned: “I don’t see why this is handy.”

A mum-of-seven said: “Things I’ve learnt as a mum of seven, this is not a time saving tip.”

Supporters jumped to Kia’s defence that formula dispensers can take up a lot of space in your nappy bag.

Someone explained that “it takes up so much space in the diaper bag to have baby bottles, waterbottles and formula dispensers”, whereas Kia’s hack “eliminates two of the three”.

One mum-of-three said: “I’m ashamed I never knew this.

“But I’m having twins so thank you.”

A second echoed: “I wished I knew that when I was a new mum.”

Another comically moaned: “You saved my life right when my baby has to get off the formula.”
