I found an awesome formula mixing pitcher!
 
I just wanted to share since I'm excited that I finally found something that works so well. Pampered Chef sells 2 sizes of mixing pitchers (I found some deals on Ebay) depending on how much you need to make at once. I originally bought the Dr Browns one but it was leaking so much liquid that it was throwing off the composition of the formula & gave my son diarrhea. Plus it made a huge mess every time I tried using it.

We have the gallon sized one since Luke goes through about 70 oz a day now (he's on Neocate Jr & nothing else). It's super easy, no mess while mixing, easy to pour & easy to wash. They sell a 2 liter one, also.

how long can you store the mixed formula? how do you warm it back up?

I love my immersion blender. We do a pitcher and use the cuisanart immersion blender to make it. We also use a scale to have a more accurate mix. It is amazing how off scoops can be.

70 ounces a day?! Is that a lot? Or is it because he is not on solids?

Great idea! I was just cleaning out my cabinets and found my old Pampered Chef pitcher. I'll have to give it a try.

He doesn't eat anything else but the Neocate Jr. He has a bunch of medical problems but is 2 and 40 lbs so he needs to fill his big tummy :giggle2:

Just wanted to update, the Pampered Chef mixing pitcher broke fast. Only lasted not quite 2 months. I'm going to update the original post since this thing worked well, when it worked but it is unusable now. :(
