so i am going back to work and have been taking Alexander to the dayhome lady to get him prepared for when I do go back on the 19th.
I was talking to her about how much i seem to waste formula when he is growth spurting because I make a huge bottle one time and he eats all of it and then the next time he is starving i assume he needs the same amount and he only eats 2 oz of it....she proceeded to say that i could leave it out for four hours and if he got hungry again I could just use it.............I have only ever used it after an hour, if it goes over an hour then I throw it out.....
well i was like u i didnt give zane a bottle that was over an hour old but now i leave his bottle around 3 hours may be as he likes to munch. but the other night he was drivin me insane and i gave him the closest bottle to me which was 6 hours old! but he was fine with it.
or u can always make him smaller bottles n if he needs more make an extra oz after?
I think once they get a bit older it's less than an issue if you put the cap back on and put it back into the fridge.. for Elyse I use a bottle for an hour unless I put it back into the fridge, then I use it for 2.
I would never give a baby a bottle that's 4hrs old...that's crazy (unless refridgerated). Here it stays good for 1hr, but if it's even close to an hour out I toss it. It spoils just like anything else, bacteria can grow in it. The age of the baby doesn't matter, if it's bad it's bad. I would go by what your formula says, if it says 1hr out then I wouldn't ever go over it..and if that's what it says you might want to let her know so she doesn't give it to him that old either
