    What does everyone do with regards to formula feeding at night?

    Obviously I want to try and make as little fuss as possible at night when feeding her so ideally I need to try and prepare her bottles while still in our room. I was thinking about making up a couple of bottles then keeping them in a mini fridge or thermal bag and then reheating in a bottle warmer. However everywhere I read they tell you not to pre make bottles!

    Bit confused and not sure what else to do! Any advice?

    I have got one I just didn’t wanna have to run up and down the stairs all night, I thought that would disturb her.

    You could always bring it upstairs with you when you come to bed?

    We had one and just got up and went down to make her bottle and she never got disturbed as she was already semi awake wanting a bottle anyways.

    I had an ace system going!

    Mini fridge in my bedroom and a flask of boiling water.

    I used to make a double-concentrate bottle; (if I needed an 8, I'd put enough formula in for an 8 but only fill to the 4 with boiling water and shake it). I'd let it cool and put it in the mini fridge.

    When she woke in the night, I'd simply top up to the 8 with boiling water from the flask. Evened out at the perfect temperature every time right away!

    Will be doing the same again with the next one.

    Good luck :)
