    Default Making up Formula

    Hi ladies,

    At the moment I am putting cooled boiled water in my bottles & then heating this up & then adding Formula before each feed. Is it ok to make up enough bottles for the day by putting the formula in the bottles in the fridge and then heating it up before each feed?

    Thanks

    You can give the formula at room temp which you might find easier for out and about.

    Most formulas (except thickened formula) can be made up for the day and then heated in a jug of hot water. I don't think it's recommended to microwave the made up formula.

    I make my bottles for the day all in one go except if I will be feeding when out and about. For home bottles I store in fridge and warm up in a tub of hot water. I sometimes use the microwave but make sure I stop and shake and test frequently. if out and about I put warm water into a bottle and then add formula when I am ready to use it

    I just fill the bottles with the water and sit them on the bench and then add the formula as needed.

    I have always been told not to heat the formula but only the water as heating the formula kills the good bacteria & enzymes etc.

    This was sitting in on Heinz, etc promotions for work

    I have always been under this impression as well.

    Thanks everyone, I thought the only reason it wasn't supposed to be heated in the microwave after being made up was to avoid hot spots and the potential to burn bub.

    I would have thought hot spots exist if you don't give the bottle a really really good shake? I have always microwaved the bottles and have yet to have had a hot spot...
