Breast & bottle feeding
30/09/2008 at 17:39
Another question already... I'm just introducing formula to my baby and i'm very confused. I've been using made up cartons so far but its getting a bit expensive.
Can I store boiled water in a sterile container to use throught the day to make up bottels instead of boiling the kettle and waiting 30 mins every feed??? And if i do this can i then heat up the milk?
Thanks Aud x

When Bronwyn was a tiny (hmmm) baby i boiled the kettle first thing and filled her sterlised bottles with the boiled water. Then i either added an ounce of hot boiled water or warmed the water slightly so that the powder mixed in. The powder should mix, even in cold water, with a good shake!!
The advice about making each bottle as and when you need it is daft! Bronwyn went to nursery at 4 months and they expected me to take in the bottles made up ready to go.
I will be making smurfy's bottles up in advance and storing them in the fridge!

I used to make Cameron's feeds up the night before and store them in the fridge too, although if we were going out i'd take bottles of cooled boiled water and add the powder when it was time for a feed.
