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.
