7 MO DD has three ready-to-drink formula feeds a day (i.e. I don't mix it myself, just pour the carton straight into a sterilised bottle.)

Due to illness over the last few days, she has only been able to take half a carton each time, even though I have poured the whole carton into her sterilised bottle.

Can I keep the other half in the sterilised bottle in the fridge and use it for her next feed? And for how long can I keep it in the fridge?

No you need to dispose if it's had contact with saliva.
Pour a half carton into bottle and refrigerate the carton, until she cues for more.

Sorry she's not well, awww.

It should say on the carton. We use ready made formula in 200ml plastic bottles for my ds's one formula feed a day and it says on there that you can keep it for 24 hours in the fridge.

It's 24 hours if it has been opened but not been drunk from. Once it is in the bottle and they have had a drink from it then it should be discarded after 2 hours
