Hi, sorry if this has been done before but need some advice on the best way to make up feeds whilst out for a baby who will only drink milk warm! DD was EBF but due to a medical condition is now having some formula feeds. I have tommee tippee bottles, with the little pots to store the milk powder and the insulated bags but they dont keep the boiled water warm for more than a couple of hours and I'll be away from home for probably 8 hours at least. Does anyone know if it's ok to take freshly boiled water in a thermos and make up the bottles as needed? Sorry if I sound stupid, I just want to make the bottles in the safest possible way and at a temperature that she will actually take! Thanks!

I think as long as your thermos is spotlessly clean (in boiling water, or dishwasher or cold water sterilising solution) and air dried then it should be OK. I would do that.

You'll have to be sure the thermos will keep the water at above 70 degrees, but if it will then that sounds like a safe way to do it.

I use the ready made cartons when out and about. They're more expensive, but they are convenient and safe.
