    Hi all

    Just wondering if anyone can help me, when I start to give Jasmine a bottle how long is it before we are not be able to use it? I am sure the hospital told me that it only lasts 1 hour from the start of a feed - but we are finding that we are wasting quite alot by doing this.

    Thankyou for any help and advice.

    :hugs:

  2. I think the limit says two hours on the box but I never use it again after an hour just to be sure.

    You're okay to use it for 1 hour from when you warm it up.. we wasted a lot at first too; what size bottles are you making up? Elyse was not taking anywhere near 4oz, so I started making 2oz bottles up, then I would just get another if she needed more.

    It is one hour, but if you put in the fridge it is good for 24 hrs
