    We have these little lights that you push to turn on they emit enough light to see what your doing but not enough to stimulate bubs to wake up. I think they were from eBay and are battery operated.

    This is exactly what I now do. I have the dispenser filled before I go to bed.

    I'm new to bottle feeding so will be curious to hear any other suggestions! I'm hating actually having to get out of bed during the night, rather than just plonking DS on the boob and dozing! But he won't drink it cold either.

    This is only a worry if you microwave after mixing the formula in apparently. We only microwave the water then add formula.

    Buy yourself a thermos... put boiling water in before bed, then put bottles with 2/3 room temp water, formula dispenser and thermos on bedside table... add the extra 1/3 hot water from thermos. (Depending how much your son drinks, you may have to adjust the ratio of room temp and boiling water, this is just what works for DS3's 150ml bottles)
