    This, but for the night feeds I had the formula pre measured in those formula holders, so I could do it in the dark to save me from waking up from the kitchen lights!

    Yes, felt like I did that a million times.. Water poured and powder measured before bed - stumble out in low light, micro for 22 seconds (seriously, a million times, lol) add powder and shake all the way back to bed. (We co slept, so that was all the effort I had to do, feed, burp, change, zzzz)

    Others may not agree but I have always made formula once every 24hrs. So I make all bottles (water and powder) before bed, then all I had to do for DD's night feeds was stick it in the microwave and give it a good shake. I started off warming them with boiling water but like you OP I found it took too long and I also came close to burning myself a few times when I was really tired.
    Formula is safe to store in the fridge for 24hrs before you have to throw it out.
