Post subject: Babies formula
how is everyone making up babies formulas we used to make them up an store in the fridge an use within 24hours then u used to just fill the bottle with water and heat up and add formula now they want to to make up as you need. To me that's not gonna work when you have a screaming child.
How are u all doing it?

I do agree with you about it not working , when my baby was poorly I was trying to make them up fresh when needed but she was so stressed out waiting and I would get stressed so in the end I went and brought the ready made glass bottles like they have in the hospital .
But I was thinking ... The health visitors and midwives say not to pre make them and store them in the fridge but that's exactly what these ready made one's are !!! But they don't tell u not to use them !!
I can see both sides really ... Yes ideally a fresh bottle of formula is the best but as long as bottles are sterilized and used within the time limit then I think it's fine .. I admit I make up a batch first thing in a morning and put them in the fridge and warm them in a bottle warmer when I need them but I do chuck them away if she's not had them by bedtime
Sometimes I think midwives and health visitors can be too over the top with things

i just do the water first and discard after 24 hours (tbh i don't listen to the health visitors any more i only get bull rubbish from them) i have 3 healthy children done the same way with each and will do it again with the one i'm carrying (the powder on the other hand i don't take out the tin unless needed but as long as the bottles are sterilized and the water boiled and cooled there should be no problem (i never have had any problems with it this way)
