Expert Reviews

What reviewers liked

Good portability combined with extra covenience and durability. A good alternative for carrying formula while shopping.
You can eventually turn the dispenser into a snack cup for your toddler.
With compartments for three 9-ounce pre-measured formula feeds and a rotating cap that prevents powder spilling into the other compartment shells, it’s especially great for travel. And when formula feedings are done, it converts into a handy snack cup. Even better, it’s microwave- and dishwasher safe and comes in three colors: gray, pink, and blue.
Migration of formula from one compartment to the others AND the amount of formula sticking to the sides knocked it down compared to our top pick.
This handy little contraption has three sections that hold up to 9 ounces of formula each with a rotating cap to keep it all separated. Fill it up and throw it in your diaper bag and you have enough formula for at least three feedings. And when your little one has moved on from bottles, it pulls double duty and becomes a snack cup (because toddlers always want snacks!). It’s dishwasher-safe and can be sterilized for easy clean up.
Three storage compartments that can store enough formula to prepare a 9-ounce bottle (per section). Flip-top, easy-pour spout with a cap to prevent mess and ensure accuracy when pouring. Removable plastic divider keeps the formula separate from other compartments but can be removed to convert the formula dispenser into a food storage container. Sterilizer, microwave, and dishwasher safe (top rack).

What reviewers didn't like

Oval opening is difficult to use with some baby bottles without spilling formula.
It can be a little difficult to pour the powder into narrow bottle spouts neatly.
The pour required some banging to get all the formula out.
The inner section can be removed so the container can be turned into a snack cup. Make sure you don’t accidentally pull out the divider when using it to section off formula.
Some parents complain about formula spilling over to other compartments. Other customers complain that this product can be difficult to use.
