    What do I do if LO wakes for a bottle?! We have an electric cooker... So that wont work..
    We rang the company people from our mobiles and they said it can take upto 48 hours to be put back on...

    could you just buy a few cartons for ready made milk from tescos? I know it wont be warm but its probably the best solution. x

    All I can suggest is maybe finding a 24hr supermarket and buying some ready made formula?
    Sorry I cant come up with a better suggestion x

    Send one person in taxi?
    If you all chip in for taxi and all pay for your own formula a taxi wont cost much..

    Hi, do you have any water in the kettle that has just been boiled once? If you have I would use that to make a bottle up. Hope you get power soon x

    I had a power cut over the winter at night when my LO was having bottles more frequently and I usually have some cartons of ready made milk (I always buy some to leave at my parents incase I forget/or he needs more) but that was still no good for me because LO at the time wouldn't drink cold milk. Even though it was like 11pm I knocked on my neighbours door because I knew she had a gas cooker and she boiled up some water for me for a few bottles and then when I needed them warmed I just stood them in hot tap water for 10 minutes and it did the trick :)

    Hope your electric comes back on soon though :flower:
