Mommy Proofed Formula

We've been using the ready to eat formula that comes in quart sized containers - well, opening the bottles of formula became quite the arduous task. In order to prepare some bottles for the day I would go through the following steps:

  1. Unwrap plastic seal around neck of bottle.
  2. Unscrew cap.
  3. Struggle with foil covering top of bottle.
  4. Locate knife (or other sharp object).
  5. Stab foil covering.
  6. Peel back foil.
  7. Pour formula into bottles.

Well, just 2 days ago, (yes, this was after a MONTH of this process) I somehow noticed that on the lid of the formula bottle was a little sharp, pointy looking thing. Upon a closer inspection I also noticed words imprinted on it that read "TO CUT FOIL Invert Cap, Push Down & Turn"...

Ohhhh so, a built in sharp object for me to open the darn formula! I can now eliminate steps 3,4 and 5 and replace them with

Step 3. Use inverted lid to open pesky foil

Whew, its a good thing it only took a full month to figure this out. :)
