How long can you save a formula bottle for? Jax 3 kids; Sydney, NS, Australia 2888 posts

LO woke up at 6:30am for a feed. He didnt want to sleep after that bottle, so he just layed in bed with me until we took DD to school.
When we got home he was tired crying, but wouldnt settle. So i gave him a bottle, and b/c he was so tired, he only drank about 20mls then passed out. I didnt empty the bottle, b/c i didnt expect him to sleep for long, but its been an hour so far.
I cant keep that bottle now can i?
