    Well yes obviously they all have guidelines, which is why I’m asking for others input on better brands that possibly last longer than what I use.

    Most powder formulas go bad in 30-40mins. Only ones which don't see those which come pre-made , in tubes or tetrapacks...

    I think most say to discard 2 hours after making the feed . I know Aptimal and Cow and Gate have a 2 hour window .

    If you get the premade bottle I think that lasts upto 48 hours in the fridge but again you have to discard any feed in the bottle after 2 hours

    When I was breastfeeding and topping up with formula, we bought the small bottles of premade formula. That way if you are only give 1 or 2 bottles a day a small bottle can last 48 hours in the fridge. X

    I've used Aptamil and Hipp, both say discard within two hours (I think it's one hour if the baby has drank from the bottle). It's to stop the build up of bacteria in the bottle.

    The ready made bottles last 48 hours in the fridge.
