    Default Preparing formula....

    So on the doctors say so I have to give ds some formula feeds. For a feed during the night can I take a bottle with boiling water to bed and allow it to cool next to my bed then when he wakes mix in tbe formula and shake? The water is now cool not warm at all and he's happy to drink it at that temp? Does it have to be warm??

    I usually have a thermo where the water has cooled down and when I need to make formula I just do it like that.

    However, in your case, if the water has cooled down and is warm (not hot) then it's fine.

    When I go out I add my warm water from thermo and boiling water, so by the time it's needed it's right temp.

    My DD2 only had formula at room temperature. It's perfectly fine 😊

    Much easier for you if bub prefers room temp bottle, no hassle with getting it warmed up when out either.

    We've always prepped the bottles after we've cleaned them, ie. put the boiled water into them so that all we had to do was add formula. That way you don't get caught out with not having any cool, boiled water by feed time.

    Ive never warmed bottles for any of my 4, they were all from birth (with the exception off dd1 who was on ebm for 3 weeks and dd4 who was bf for 3 days). Waaaaay to much effort for me. I just had a 2L water bottle filled with boiled water on the bench so it was always room temp and made the bottles as needed. Always had 1 or 2 bottles already with water so if the water in the big bottle was still warm there was some ready to go.
