    Yep I thought the same thing, hot spots seem irrelevant as u have to shake the bottle to mix the formula thru anyway.

    I don't think reheating is a good idea. Maybe add formula to cool water then reheat when needed. Not heat the water, add formula, cool, reheat. Personally I add the correct amount of water to each bottle. When the bottle is needed I then add the correct amount of formula to the bottle.

    That's how I did it. Boiled water, poured into sterilised bottles (cos that was still the done thing at the time) and then added formula right before each feed.

    When out and about I just had bottles full of water and then added formula as needed. Just served it at room-temp.

    Re boiled water - we are on tank water and have a really good filtration system plumbed into the fridge. Can I use this water or do I really need to boil for 5 mins?

    Gnomesy, it needs to be boiled to kill off any bacteria.

    I have bottles filled with water when needed I either add formula and serve at room temperature or if I want to give him a warm bottle I add some hot boiled water then mix in the formula.
