    Default How far in advance do you make a bottle?

    I have a friend who makes her LO bottles in the morning for the day and stores them in the fridge.

    Is this ok? Do you make them in advance?

    I'm sure they store for 24 hrs, I have always just made them as needed though

    That's what I do. I make my DDs first 1-2 bottles of the day the night before then the rest in the morning. I don't keep them for longer than 24 hours. It says it on the tin how far in advance you can make them somewhere.

    Will have a look. Thank you!

    How do you heat them? It does your Lo drink it cold?

    I put the bottles in a jug of boiling water straight from the fridge - cold can give babies tummy aches which would suck.

    It takes between 3 and 5 mins to heat it, depending on how big the bottle is and how hot your kidlet likes it. My DD used to like it just above room temp now she likes it a fair few degrees above body temp so its warm but not unpleasant.

    Edit: Some people do it in the microwave and I have in a pinch but it heats the bottle unevenly so even after shaking there can be hot spots that burn bub.

    I only ever made bottles when DS wanted one. I boiled water and filled the bottles and would add formula as required. DS was never fussed in regards to temperature.

    They store 24hrs in the fridge once made. If DD doesn't finish hers I throw them in the fridge and heat them up in a bottle of boiling water for a few minutes.

    I find it easier to measure all the water into bottles in the morning, and get the formula ready in the formula dispenser that way I just make them as needed

    I fill the bottles with water every morning and put them in the fridge as well as fill the formula dispensers for the day, then microwave and add the formula as needed.

    I fill the bottles the night before with boiled water and then add the formula as needed the next day. DS takes the bottles room temp so this way I don't need to heat or cool, they are always ready to go.
