It does expire. Non-returnable & u probably won't kno what type is best on ur babies tummy until it gets here. We had to switch 4 times b4 the Dr found a good fit. I say stock up on diapers & wipes!

Because formula expires how about making a little savings acct/piggy bank with formula money in it. The cash won't expire and once you know what kind baby will use after birth you can buy in bulk

I say don't do it because you don't really know what formula baby will use

Maybe instead of stocking up, just get a visa gift card and put $50 to $100 on it every month.  That way you'll have a "stockpile" but you can get whatever formula works and won't have to worry about expiration.

Some stores WILL allow u to return formula, unopened with receipt for a gift card, iv done it. Formula doesnt generally expire for 12-18 months so u can stock up but make sure u rotate the cans

I would say don't stock up. It does not expire. Plus what if you breastfeed only then you would of bought it for nothing.

You can totally stock up, just don't go super nuts and keep receipts so IF baby needs a different type then you bought you can exchange it.
