Ready to use formula that was opened last monday (soy) and it wasn't thrown away and the sitter gave him less then an ounce is he going to get sick?

It could happen for him to develop gastrointestinal symptoms. If so, let your pediatrician know what happened so they can do appropriate stool tests. ...Read more
