Baby Formula

My nanny gives me a headache, she uses one botle for the whole day. she doesn' t bother to sterilise the bottles, even if i have sterlised them an left them in their striliser container she still uses one bottle. I have decided to make baby bottlles for the day and leave them in fridge, my concern is that is it safe to for a baby to drink formula that been preparedfor over three hours.

As far as I am concerned it is safe.
You can prepare the milk for the whole day and the millk will be good for 24 hour in the fridge. After 24 hours throw away the milk that has been left over and prepare new bottles.
Thats what i do for my LB since i prefer to prepare his food myself and this idea i got it from a sister in our clinic. This helps me a lot.
Hope this works out for you. But also remeber to warm the milk before feeds, to room temperature.
