formula preparation.....

  • ok, what would you do ladies?
    I feed Noah powdered formula and use evenflo glass bottles.
    This is what I'm currently doing..........boiling water, putting water in bottles and capping, putting in fridge, removing one from fridge when feeding time came and warming in hot water until water is room temperature (I've never fed him warm formula and he doesn't seem to mind) , adding powder, and feeding.
    Noah screams while I'm doing all this of course because he's hungry.
    To make it faster, would you store the bottles empty/closed up and add room temperature boiled water from the kettle at feeding time to prevent having to spend the time warming to room temperature? (anyone know how long boiled water sitting in the kettle is considered to still be good?)
    I also just read that you can prepare powdered formula as long as you use it 24 hrs in advance..........I didn't think you could, but if I did that, I would only have to warm and not mix and shake and warm.
    Any thoughts???

  • Can you put the boiled water in jugs and keep those in the fridge? I started out with boiled water... and then gave up
    We never went warm either and he was fine with it.

  • I know, that's why I gave up and used tap water that was warm...
    I guess if you wanted to, you could buy distilled water and keep it out of the fridge? But I don't know how long water is good for either kwim?

  • we would never use the tap water here, it's GROSS!
    I buy bottled water and mix it and feed him. I even keep one of those portable formula things with the dividers filled with the powder at night (and the bottles with the right amount of water) on my nightstand so i dump the formula in the bottle, shake and feed.
