I've tried looking on the nhs and start for life websites and it doesn't say. Everyone I know (health visitor, relatives etc) says it's 1 hour but I heard somewhere else that the nhs says the milk lasts 2 hours, is that just the milk tho and not the bottle?!
I mean a bottle that's been made up and left in the fridge for less than 24 hours, then you take it out and the baby drinks from it.....how long before you have to using a fresh bottle for her to drink from?
my baby sometimes wants more milk when the bottle has been drunk from an hour and 15 mins ago, and I always get her a new bottle because I've been told that bottles only last an hour from when the baby first drinks from it
does anyone know what the NHS advise is in this situation, 1 or 2 hours?
thanks dementedpixie, oh how I hate having to do mixed feeding!
it's aptimal, or however you spell it. I'm not sure it says anything about it......
I start with a 2oz feed then top up the feeding bottle from another bottle an oz at a time so she gets what she needs in that session, because being mixed fed for her means that the amount she wants can vary a lot, and this way I save some money by wasting less milk
