    Default How long does formula last once mixed?

    If bub has a tiny bit of a bottle then falls asleep or isn't hungry how long will the bottle last before needing to be tipped away?

    Once its made up and is at room temperature I was told three hours. If you make a batch up and keep it in the fridge its 24 hours. We make ours as we go and will use it up to three hours then chuck it away

    The WHO guidelines are one hour, if bub has drank some of it.

    I was also told one hour if bub has had some. Also, do not reheat.

    24 hours if prepared and put in fridge.

    One hour after bub has first touched it.

    24 hours in the fridge after being made up.

    I tip the formula out after an hour / half an hour if he won't drink the rest of it and there is only a small bit of milk left in the bottle, but if he has left the bottle and there is still lots of milk left in the bottle I put the cap back on the bottle and place it in the fridge to reuse it next feed during that same day.
