Let's think about this. Formula is a substitute for breast milk which is naturally warm from mommy's boob. Bottled water added to powdered formula would ideally be warmed to the same temp. How many of us held bottles under running hot water (burning the crap out of your hands) to warm up a bottle? Back in the day, parents would put bottles in heated water on the stove b/c the milk was kept in the fridge and babies naturally want warm milk. I know some parents actually microwave the milk or formula. No need for coolers.

This is assuming that you have not premixed the formula. I am assuming that you have sealed powdered/dehydrated formula and you are keeping it with separate stored water. Chemical leaching would theoretically be an issue if subjected to high temps (microwaving) or for prolonged periods of time.

I am done with bottles and night time feedings. Any tips for potty training would be welcome though. Damn diapers are expensive. I could have afforded the HK upgrade.

Congrats on the new addition to the team, it is fun and worth the sleepless nights.
Lol, great post... Indeed, it is powder and only considering storing the water now bc it's getting colder out. The first dude is 3 so he eats like me (everything) so it's only for the 2 month old..

As for potty training I was given a tip that worked like a charm. Assuming you have a little dude this will work...

My little guy loves cheerios so I dumped a few in the toilette and told him to aim for them... Sure, it's funny as shit to think about, but that was the only thing that worked. I tossed a few in there and said "OK Jackie boy, try to get them"! We laughed and by golly it worked like a charm.

What size cooler is it? Does it plug in to keep stuff cold or is it driven by ice?

Thanks for that tip, and yes it does work quite well. He will do #1 but won't sit on the throne for #2. We even have the little baby butt adapter so he doesn't feel like he is going to fall in. All good things in time I guess.

Thanks

I am a little late on the response to this one but it is just a little hand held cooler - looks like it would hold a little bigger than a 12 pack. It doesn't plug in, I just put some ice packs in it. I just received another one yesterday thinking it would be the same thing as it said it holds 16 cans but unfortunately it is not as big & does not have the hard insert on the inside so the new one is just like a lunch cooler.

Re: So where would you guys store water?

You've gotta think big when it comes to prepping for little kids. If it hasn't happened yet, it will—you'll be driving someone and your baby will drop the absolute motherload in their pants, just a straight up explosion. Here's my solution for prepping my Jeep for road trips with young children…

A change table in a cargo drawer…

… and a fridge.

Re: So where would you guys store water?

I don't have kids... probably because my idea of dealing with "changes" would involve an inverter and a Karcher.

Nice change table Matt. Respect.

Cheers,
Steve
