Emergency Baby Formula Recipe

Thank you We Have Kids For Sharing This Recipe

Emergency Baby Formula Recipe (Just like Grandma Used to Make) One standard-sized 13 ounce can of evaporated milk can make a full quart of emergency formula. The process is simple, fast, and best of all, does not compromise your child's health.

You will need:

  • A clean quart container 13 oz. evaporated whole milk (reduced fat, skim, or sweetened condensed milk will not provide your baby enough of the calories or nutrition he needs).

  • 18 - 19 oz. water

  • 2 tablespoons white granulated sugar

Combine the above ingredients into the quart container, and stir until the sugar is fully dissolved. The added sugar will help your child break down the proteins in the evaporated milk. After serving your child, any remaining emergency formula should be refrigerated with any unused portion being discarded after three days.

Congratulations! You have saved the day (night) and have something safe to feed your baby until you can go to the store and get a commercial-grade formula.

Emergency Baby Formula Recipe for Sensitive Stomachs

Unfortunately, not all babies are able to process the lactose in cow's milk that evaporated milk is derived from. For parents with babies with a sensitive stomach try this as your emergency alternate.

Rice Milk

Rice Milk has long been used as a supplement for infants and has the added benefit of making your child feel full. It does not contain all of the needed vitamins, proteins and fat specialized formulas provide to your child, and should not be used as a primary source of nutrition.

You will need:

  • 1 Cup Cooked Rice (can be any type of rice, but Brown rice has more nutritional value)

  • 4 Cups Water

  • 2 Tablespoons White Granulated Sugar

  • Blender

Combine all ingredients into the blender and blend until all ingredients are completely liquefied. A standard blender will take around 5 minutes for this process to complete.

After serving to your child, refrigerate any unused portion and discard after two days.


The emergency evaporated milk formula is safe to give to infants 12 months and younger, barring any lactose intolerance, per the World Health Organization.

The evaporated milk formula and rice milk are not a substitute for commercial grade formulas or breastmilk, as they do not include additional vitamin supplements needed to ensure long lasting health in your baby. You should always consult your physician about your child's dietary needs.
