Does anyone pre make like more then one bottle then put them in the refrigerator. Do they get old in the fridge? Or do you make the bottles one at a time?

Bottles can be made up in advance and kept in the fridge for 24 hours. It was the done thing here for years but the last couple of years they recommend that you make em up as you go along. I started doing that but found that my daughters reflux and colic were actually worse! She kept her bottles down better if they were pre made and stored in the fridge. I always heated them before feeding of course.

You can keep em in the fridge for 24 hours and just heat em up.

We did when dd was a few months old I would make 6 or 7 at a time. I forgot to heat one up one time and she actually seemed to prefer the cold bottle instead of it heated up since she actually drank the whole thing unlike normal where she wouldnt finish it all. Just remember its only good for 24hrs.
