i used to keep hot water in flask for night to get milk ready anytime and i nvr keep leftovr milk...i discard.


i used to keep boiled water and make immediately when baby demanded. Formula milk i would keep only for an hour. You can refridgerate it

My daughter likes her milk warm and won't drink once it cools down. So I always make about 60-90ml at a time and when she finishes that, I make more. It's a little tedious but she does drink happily when the milk is warm.
And it is better to store the prepared milk in hot water if you think your baby will drink within the next half hour. Just immerse the bottle in a glass of hot water. Don't store it for more than that as the formula loses all it's good qualities.
