Last I heard you couldn't. Something about the wording of the food hygiene law that defines infant formula as being powdered only.

Kid is essentially off milk now, and I never saw those.

How old is the wee one? When ours was real little we would use these little powder blocks when travelling. We'd still have to track down hot water, but that usually wasn't hard to do. The problem was, as he got older he just ate too much for them to be practical.

9 months now. Haven't seen the powder blocks before - but yea, he's a hungry baby. He's moving onto solids, but still has two or three bottles a day.

Yeah, I'd probably just prepare a bottle before I go anywhere, and if I'm planning on being gone a long time preload a bottle with the correct amount of powdered formula and seek out hot water when I need it.

Saw this news story and remembered this thread, so I thought I'd post this update on the ready to drink baby formula situation in Japan.

Pretty hilarious that they're allowing it because it will encourage men to help with child-care more. Because fuck doing something so that it would have been easier for women.
