    Default Bottles fridge or bench??

    Wen you fill your bottles with the water ready for formula do you store the water bottles in the fridge or on the bench?
    I keep mine on the bench but have read a few posts saying people keep them in the fridge so am wondering what others do and why??

    I would put semi cool boiled water into the bottles but would only have the next 1 bottle ready only on the bench (unless we're going out) and by the time I need it it would be prefect room temp and just microwave a little. If the water is being sealed in a sterilised bottle I don't see the difference between fridge and room temp except you have to then heat the bottle more if it's been in the fridge.

    This! We put ours in the fridge because we dont have much bench space but also because I like to keep my bench free of anything lol

    I always did my bottles at room temperature, so had a big bottle of boiled, but cooled water on the bench at room temperature, then had the bottles with their measured out formula in them on the bench too. So I could just add water and shake like mad.

    I used to keep mine on the bench (way back when...) I never heated the kids bottles.
