Crash Course

Okay mamas! Ive hopped on the formula train!! Now, whats your best tip?
LO is under 3 mos, so we're boiling water, then put it in an airtight container and leave it on the counter... we have our drop-ins loaded with the pre-measured powder, and just add the water and shake.

Can we use bottled water instead of boiling? Is leaving the water at room temperature safe? Thats how he drinks it anyways...

Re: Crash Course

I either used the baby water or the filtered water from my fridge. I never boiled the water.

I warmed a little in runing hot water. After awhile they just started drinking it whatever temp.
wife and mom-- no other special labels. Just trying to do the best I can.

We just use the nursery water and keep it out on the counter at room temp. We also premeasure water into bottles and just add the formula and shake when we need it.
