    Default Bottles at room temperature

    For both kids (if I have more ill do it the same too) wash in hot soapy water, rinse and sterilise.
    Boil water in the stove top kettle and leave.
    When needed take bottle from steriliser, fill to required amount, heat in microwave and add formula.

    Default Bottles at room temperature

    Ill answer by telling you what I do - wash bottles in warm soapy water, sterilise, put correct mls of boiled water into the bottles (straight from stove to bottle no cooling), refrigerate bottles. I then heat the bottle to temperature in the microwave at feed time and then add the formula.

    If out and about I heat the water only bottles and put them in an insulated bottle bag at feed time I add the formula.

    I'll add a disclaimer to the microwaving - the issue around microwaving is it can
    A) cause hot spots - not an issue if you add the formula after as you need to shake it thoroughly to combine the formula and water eliminating hot spots
    B) microwaving ruins the makeup of the formula - again not an issue if you add the formula after.

    I did the same, no issues.

    This is what I do, apart from the last sentence.

    Default Bottles at room temperature

    That was how I did it when I started bottle feeding. This was in 2005.

    After a few months I just did room temp. Much easier. I just had room temp previously boiled water in bottles... And would add formula right before a feed.

    Made feeding when out easy.
