    just wondering how long a tin of formula lasts?? katie's on 7oz 5 times-ish a day.

    the first tin i had i took bits out of every now and again, so i dunno how much we went thru and when. but now i've had a tin since sat and i swear its almost all gone!!

    Molly's formula is also on prescription and we probably get through a tub a week. Luckily my prescription is for 4 tubs plus 6 ready to drink cartons at a time!

    It last's us about 4 - 6 days. Not very long.

    I get milk tokens, as i'm not working. And by the end of week 2 i've none left. So I go through a months worth of tokens in 2 weeks, lol.
