Post subject: Making bottles, which ways best??
Ok so I know your supposed to make each bottle as and when it's needed but this is just so difficult when you have a screaming hungry baby to attend to!

At the minute I put boiling water in bottles, cool then put in fridge. When lo is ready for her feed I get a cold bottle out of the fridge, warm a little in microwave then add the milk. With my ds, 3 years ago, I used to boil the kettle, add the water to the bottles, add milk then put in fridge then warm a little in microwave when ready for a feed, so my question is (and I know your not suppose to do either really now) which way is best?? Xx

when i had my daughter the advice was to put the boiled water in the bottle, leave it then add the powder and warm up, but i think that has gone out the window now as it wasnt warm enough to mix the powder correctly.

i used colief drops for colic which was a nightmare as it took an hour to make a bottle, 30 mins to boil and cool, then had to leave for 30 mins to activate, but on there website it said you could make the bottles up and put in the back of the fridge for up to 12 hours which i used to do. even when she came off them i used to make her morning bottle up before i went to bed, so i could have an extra half an hour sleep on a morning!

Hi, I know this is a late reply but wanted to reply as when I had my little boy I got so confused with what was the best way so I wanted to post this for any other mums that are confused. If I have another baby I will be sticking to this way as it works. Boil kettle, sterilise bottles, fill bottles with hot water and leave to sit at room temp. Use bottles as and when you need them by adding formula powder. Because they are room temp the powder mixes perfectly. I didn't even bother heating them as they were not 'fridge' cold, and my little one drank them fine. They get use to what you set for them. If you do want to mix the powder up at the time of preparing the bottles they must then go in the fridge, because as soon as the powder is mixed bacteria can grow, but then you have to do the whole reheating rigmarole. I always prepared enough bottles for 24 hours so would have a bottle sitting on the side waiting to be mixed for my little ones morning feed. Hope this helps.

Im bf-ing so not really up on bottles, but my friend puts most of the boiled water in the bottle and refrigerates then when she is ready for it, adds the milk powder and boils the kettle to add the final ounce or so, which brings it up to the right temp. Or if out and about she does same but takes the top up water in a flask,

I always just have bottles of water ready and add the formula when needed, LO hates his bottles warm though and kicks off if it's above room temp so suppose that made it a bit easier
