Hiking with a 20-month old on 06/29/2009 11:32:13 MDT Print View

Hi all, newbie here.

My husband and I are hoping to take our son backpacking for the 1st time over 4th of July weekend. He still takes his bottle and I was hoping I could get recommendations for powdered milk (what and where to get).

Thanks in advance!

Does your son drink formula or cow milk? If cow milk you may want to look at NIDO's kinder drink they make, it is designed for toddlers to young kids. Not as rich as full fat NIDO full fat milk/easier to digest.
You can find this sometimes at Super Walmarts in the dry milk section or on Amazon.

If you do use say powdered instant dry milk, flavoring it is a big thing...otherwise it lacks in flavor!

If you are going to be looking for the Nido at a walmart try looking the hispanic foods section. Thats where I found it at the local walmart, its not with the actual dry milk (all they had there was the non fat dehydrated milk)
