Ive checked the formula tins of the top brands and some say use cool boiled water, others say 40 degrees, another says 50-60 degrees?

I've always just boiled the water when setting my bottles up, then leave to cool on the bench. When Bub is hungry I pop a bottle in the microwave for 30 seconds and add in my formula. We've never had a problem
I boil water first thing in the morning before DD gets up and fill all of them for the day and leave. Just add formula when she's ready when it's super cold I zap in the microwave for 10 seconds to warm it slightly
I didn't even know there was such a rule. I use to boil water, let it cool, add formula to room temp or cold water and give it to DS.
He is now almost 10 so no harm done.

Another one who boils the water and then gives room temperature bottles. Mum said to me the other day when he was fussing with his bottle "maybe it's too cold for him?" and I said "nah, that wouldn't be it!". Luckily he isn't fussy so I can get away with this, though I do feel mean as it's getting colder and hence the bottles are colder but I figure he gets some lovely body temperature booby milk at the beginning of his feed, why make this formula business harder on myself by faffing about with heating it! 😝
As an aside, I sometimes use a supplemental nursing system when giving him formula so cold milk running across my nipple is my penance for being so lazy! 😉
I always boil the water and leave it until it's warm in temperature. Then put warm water to thermos. When DS need I just mix warm water and formula. It works really well for us. DS loves warm bottle.
