Hi am new to ff as making the transition from bf and am out for the day have poured one of those ready mixed bottles of formula into ds' bottle but he is refusing it. Stupidly have only got one with me - how long can I leave it in his bottle if I try again in a bit? Sorry if it's a dumb question any help much appreciated!
