I run my tap water til it's the hottest, our water tank is set the highest. I measure the water, put the formula in, mix and put it in the fridge. When i'm ready to use it, I just warm it up in the mic. No problems doing it this way so far with our 2 kids.
I'm just finding it really difficult with having to put the steriliser on for every feed and then making the feed at 2am with a screaming little boy.
I don't want to make the whole days in advance but maybe 3 or so I think once he's a couple of weeks old ill make in advance as the midwifes scared the shit out of me in hospital.
Was wondering if I was to sterilise say 5 bottles in the morning, put them together and put them in the fridge all day and use them when needed would they remain sterile?
I used to wash a sterilise all my bottles in the morning and I had an electric steriliser that takes about 6/8 bottles. Then I'd boil a kettle and fill my bottles and add the formula, shake them up then quick cool them in a bowl of freezing cold water then put them in the fridge. In the early days with LO I used to use a bottle warmer but found it so time consuming so I switched to microwaving them. I never had any problems. I just loosened the lid and put it in for 15-20 seconds then give it a good shake and then leave it to stand for 20 seconds then we were good to go x
I'm in the USA so do it a bit differently but I bought a Dr. Brown's formula mixing pitcher, you can make like 30 0z at once, I mix it, it makes it come out smooth almost like ready to feed and then pour into bottles, put in the fridge and they are good for 24 hours. I can't make them one at a time because they're too foamy and it aggravates her reflux.
I also microwave them, naughty me! she doesn't like it cold, at all!
