My family and I recently drove from California to Virginia for my husband's new military duty station, and these Similac formula packets were really convenient! My son was two and a half months old when we used these, so he needed a bottle pretty frequently. These easy-to-use packets really came in handy!

**Similac Advance Infant Formula Singles Powder Packets** are "sticks" of pre-measured powder formula. To use, add water to a baby bottle and simply tear off the top of the stick and pour the powder into a bottle like you would regular formula that comes out of a canister. That's it!

Yes, **Similac Advance Infant Formula Singles Powder Packets** cost more than regular formula, but you are paying for convenience, and convenient they are! I don't need them for day-to-day use, but I would definitely buy them for when I don't have the time/ability to measure out formula on the go.

Easily Digested
My son had no problems digesting this formula.

Ease of Preparation
These formula sticks really came in handy when driving across country because there was no need to scoop out formula powder out of a canister. These sticks are pre-measured and contain 4 ounces - that's a plus *and* a minus. It's a plus if your baby drinks exactly 4 ounces. It's a minus if your baby drinks 2, 2 1/2, 3 or 3 1/2 ounces because you then have to try to figure out how much of the stick you need. Pinching off the stick where you think is the right amount may give your baby too much or too little formula. However, I do have to say that that slight inconvenience was far outweighed by the convenience of these easy-to-use stick packets. Unlike some packaging that is really hard to open, these sticks weren't. They had a very slight perforated area at the top of the stick that made tearing it open a cinch.

These single serve packets of formula are very convenient and easy to use, but they are also far more expensive than the bigger cans of powdered formula. We will occasionally use packets like these because of their convenience, but we cannot justify spending that much more money for everyday use. We typically use cans of powdered formula most days and only use these when traveling or when desperately needing to save a little time in bottle preparation.

Easily Digested
Our babies have never struggled to digest this type of formula. They have always done well with it without having much trouble with gas, burping, or spitting up.

Ease of Preparation
These single-serve packets are very convenient, but that convenience comes at a price. The convenience is their main redeeming value that can potentially make them worth the money, and they are very good in this aspect. But for us personally, the convenience still does not outweigh the added cost.

similac to go!

By 

from USA

Comments about Similac Advance On-the-Go Baby Formula Single-Serve Packets:

There's nothing more annoying than packing a bag for the baby, and having to figure out how to pack the bottles. Plastic bags are annoying to deal with. Putting it in the bottle can get everywhere. These fit nicely into a diaper bag, leaving more room than you had before. You can even put it in your pocket or purse. It's the perfect amount of formula as well. The only down side is the price. You're basically buying the packaging.

I found no negatives with this product. It is very easy to use and quick to prepare. I would recommend it!

Great formula! My baby doesn't prefer the taste but she's a picky eater. She will still have the bottle if I insist.

Ease of Preparation
Just add to water and mix, takes 5 seconds. The packet is easy to open, and light to carry.

Good for on the go feedings...

By 

from Florida

Comments about Similac Advance On-the-Go Baby Formula Single-Serve Packets:

While Gerber is the formula of all the daycare facilities that I have worked in, some parents and some babies prefer Similac or there little tummies can only tolerate Similac. I have a couple of times been caring for a friends baby who is strictly on Similac formula and this is a great product for those times where we aren't at the house, or are running errands, or frankly when I just don't have the time to measure out the formula.

As with most formulas they aren't the cheapest thing in the world, but Similac is often on sale, and if you are a part of there online community you can get coupons that will help you save money when buying this. Which makes the purchase price a little easier on the wallet.

Overall this is a great product for moms or caregivers that spend a lot of time with there babies out of the house or traveling.

Easily Digested
The baby that I care for that uses Similac has a very sensitive stomach, and has no problems digesting this.

Ease of Preparation
The individual packs make the prep even easier then preparing a bottle with normal formula.

Perfect serving amount and easily dissolvable.

Comments about Similac Advance On-the-Go Baby Formula Single-Serve Packets:

I love these advance on the go baby formula single serve packets because they are perfect for the mom and the baby. These baby formula packets are easily digested. They do not give the baby indigestion or gas bubbles. This formula is easy on their stomachs and is digested well. They are extremely easy to prepare, especially on the go. I like these a lot because they are in single serve packets which are just the right amount of formula for one bottle. These baby formula packets easily dissolve and make little or no mess. I like these a lot also because thy are perfect for traveling and trips. They are small enough packets to fit comfortably in your diaper bag and not take up very much room at all. These formula packets are good for any baby, i think that they help to eliminate gas and upset stomachs. These packets are also good to have if you are out and forgot to make your babies bottles before leaving home.

Easy for Me to Use when I watch my Grandson

By 

from Wrightstown NJ

Comments about Similac Advance On-the-Go Baby Formula Single-Serve Packets:

I love this SImilac advance on the go Baby formula Single Serve packets product. As a grandmom to four grandchildren all from my daughter, I usually will have all of them at one time. The youngest is 3 months old and when you are watching a baby with three older ones it is hard to measure formula as you have no free hands! This is easy to use, I can easily open the packet while I hold the baby, add the water and shake with a minimum of trouble. It is much easier than trying to scoop and measure from a can. The formula agrees with him as well, he does not seem to get gassy or colicky from it. It is just a bir more expensive but it is worth it for the ease of preparation and digestability. My grandson is always happy after using this and not cranky or in pain from gas or an irritated tummy. Generally he is breast fed but when I have him we use this product with no troubles. It does not constipate him nor does it give him diarrhea. He is a happy baby on Similac and I know he is getting the nutrients he needs.

Similac Single Powder Packet - great for on the go moms and dads

By 

from San Bernardino, CA

Comments about Similac Advance On-the-Go Baby Formula Single-Serve Packets:

These on the go packets have been an absolute nessessity when traveling with my daughter who is now one.  While formula could be stored in a dispensor, there had been a lid popping off mishap or two that made that a pain.  With these packets I just kept themin the diaper bag or my purse and with a water source and a bottle I was ready to go.  The formula mixed easy with a little shaking and I have mnot experienced any problems with clotting or cloggin up the bottle nipples.  It does not require refrigeration and has the expiration date clearly on teh packets so there is no question of whether it is usable or not.  This made things so convinent when traveling with the little one as the mixing, clean up, and dispensing was so easy to do.  Only thing to remember is the packets are for 4 oz water so 1 packet for each small bottle and two if using a big one.  Other than that is pour in the powder, water, mix and off you go!

A grandmother's best friend

By 

from Roanoke, VA

Comments about Similac Advance On-the-Go Baby Formula Single-Serve Packets:

Similac Advance on the go single serve packets of bay formula is indeed a grandmother's best friend. it is often messy trying to scoop the Similac Advance formula from the regualar container and sometimes I overfill and spill it. The single serve has the measurements just right. I like it because I can use it easily and it is so convenient. I keep them on hand for when my grandson comes over on the spur of the moment. And my daughter does not have to bring a container with her . My grandson's digestive system seems to like Symilac Advance. he did not do so well with Enfamil.

Best on-the go bottle emergency

By 

from Flagstaff, AZ

Comments about Similac Advance On-the-Go Baby Formula Single-Serve Packets:

I'd strongly recommend this product for moms on the go and incase there was no room in the diaper bag for that big bulky box and constant stickiness from the water and powder on your fingers. This product is very light packed and is the sufficient amount of milk provided for 1 bottle for your infant. As a single mom I give this product a perfect 5 stars
