Cool boiled water...how long can i keep it for?


When i put cooled boiled water in a beaker...can i use it for the day. I usually fill it up as its easier for him to drink the water from it, even though he never drinks it all.

He has had a little now...can i keep it for the rest of the day and offer him some later? xx

I do and its never done Erin any harm. I make up 5 bottles a day in the morning - 4 for milk and one with cooled boiled water. I put 6oz in it and she has 2oz at lunchtime and then a bit more later in the day. (Erin gets constipated so needs to drink water every day). I'm sure you can keep cooled boiled water for up to 24 hours. xx

I boil water every night, and make up all of Addison's bottle for the next day, so that when it comes time to feed, I just have toadd the formula. So I would say yeah it will be good up for 24 hours or so. I would use anything after about 48 hours for sure

Not sure about the bacteria growing in it- when he takes a drink some of his saliva will get in the water and there will be bacteria in it. There is a rule for milk not to drink it if it has been first drunk from over an hour ago. Somebody on here will know if this applies to water as well.
