Facts About Freshness

Many people don't know how or when breast milk and formula expire… or how much it truly matters. The risks of feeding your baby spoiled or expired milk ranges from seriously uncomfortable to seriously dangerous! Here are a few of the risks…

  • Low-quality nutrition
  • Food poisoning
  • Upset stomach
  • Spitting up or vomiting
  • Colic
  • Fever
  • Infection

Babies, especially infants, have very sensitive tummies and immune systems. That’s why at Veba we take freshness really, really seriously!
