Formula Feeding – Travelling

We are going away for the weekend and I would like to make up the baby’s bottle before we leave so that I can relax and not worry about it. Is that ok?

The thing to remember is that milk is the ideal medium in which to grow bacteria. For that reason it is not a good idea to make up the bottles before hand. What will make your life easier, however, is to buy the small containers into which you can pre-measure the formula powder. Put the correct amount of pre-boiled water into the sterilised bottles and close them up. Now at feed time you just have to add the powder to the bottle and shake until it is completely mixed!
