If I make a bottle and my daughter doesn't drink any of it, can I put it back in the fridge? How long is it good for?



Also, can I warm it up in the microwave?



I obviously don't know anything about formula except a scoop for every 2 ounces of water. I've never had to deal with it before.

if she didn't drink off it you can have it the fridge up to 24 hours and no do not heat the formula in the microwave instead heat a bowl of water and soak the bottle in it and heat it that way. The formula in the microwave can heat un-even and have hot spots which could burn the babies mouth at least that is what the ladies in the nicu told me when my first was in there.

Read the label



Once the formula is made it's good for one hour unless stored in the fridge before feeding!!



Never microwave to heat just use hot tap water in a cup

The first part is false and she starts feeding its only good for an hour cause it loses the nutrition and everything from her saliva( that's what I've been told and what my label said on my formula )

your not suppose to reuse the formula after she already Frank from it & i believe you can store prepared formula for 48 hours, check the can to make sure

No, you're wrong, it's only good for an hour if the baby was drinking from it, if LO didn't drink from it, it's good for up to 24 hours.
