Easy & Obvious Advice for Making Baby Formula

This is such obvious advice, I feel a bit silly typing it up. But considering both my husband and I are university educated, and reasonably intelligent, and yet it still took us four months to figure it out, I thought I might as well write a quick piece for all those new parents out there. If you're making a bottle of milk for your newborn baby, the advice is to always make it to order, with freshly-boiled water from the tap. But that means you've got to cool your boiling hot bottle, and if you're disorganised {like me}, your baby is already hungry, and not keen on waiting for the milk to cool. So all you need to do is follow these three easy steps.

Three Easy Steps
1. Always keep a spare bottle of cooled kettle water in the fridge. 
2. Add half boiling water {which sterilises the milk powder and dissolves it nice and easily}, and then top up with cold water. 
3. Ta-dah! Milk the perfect temperature. 

Needless to say, you'll still want to test it my dripping a bit on your wrist. For more advice on making formula, take a look at NHS Choices. It's where I go whenever I want straight-forward advice I can trust.
