I am planning on using these but being a first time Mom Im a little lost about preparing the formula.

I know you arent suposed to microwave a bottle, and with these you cant heat the formula in the bag it has to be done before...so my question is ...How do I have the formula mixed and heated before I put it into a bag?

I feel so unaware and so unprepared.

I always used the powder version of formula. I would put the nursery water in a bottle and when she was hungry I'd just add the right amount of powder. Haley never liked her bottle warmed. I just went with room temp.

I used these bottles when I gave Makenna pumped milk, nd to warm it up I just put some hot tap water in a large mug and put the bottle in it for a few minutes and it warmed right up. So you can premix the bottles, keep them in the fridge and warm them up that way. You can also buy a bottle warmer and it will have various heat settings (incl. one for drop-in liners). I also have the Avent bottle warmer and used that for a few months.

I loved the drop-ins because all you had to sterilize were the nipples. So easy and not much to clean up.

We have a bottle warmer that says that we can put the bottle and bag in there because it doesnt get that hot. I havent used it yet but my aunt has one and she LOVES it.

I used a bottle warmer with mine and he was very happy.
The drop ins are so easy. If you don't have a dishwasher a Microwave Sterilizer is amazing.

It only takes a few minutes but I am not exactly sure on the exact time. This is the link to the one I got at my shower and I love it because it also holds two bottles cooled in the back so you dont have to keep getting bottles everytime. Keeps them cool up to 8 hours.
http://www.toysrus.com/product/index...ductId=2403657


ETA: Ok I brought it down stairs and this is what it says.
Wide Mouth- 5oz 5 minutes, 10oz 9 minutes
Standard size- 4 oz 7 minutes, 8 oz 8 minutes
Disposables- 4 oz 1 minutes, 8 oz 3 minutes
These are if the formula or breast milk is room temp to start. Yeah you can put breast milk in it too. And you can put baby food jars in it too. All sizes of baby food jars take 9 minutes. It also comes with the measuring things to measure the right amount of water everytime and a container to fill with water to freeze for the holder.

I put the bottle milk in a boiling cup of water. I always had my kettle on to make his formula anyhow. Once we started travelling, he got used to room temp formula, it was so much easier!

I just warmed the formula or breastmilk up in the microwave, in a mug.. and stirred it VERY WELL! (They are worried about hot spots when warming in microwave) then when I put it in the drop in bottle, i would mix it VERy well in there also, tipping in back and forth.. NOT shaking it, but almost like a slow-motion version of shaking, slowly tipping it back and forth, back and forth.. then i would feed him =) That was the qickest way for me when i had a hugnry 5 mth old screaming at me LOL would take 32 seconds in my microwave.
