Water first. If you do powder first and then water it's harder to mix.

If you're talking already measured out water (ie not using the bottle to measure it on the side) it doesn't make a difference other then you might get some clumps at the bottom you have to work extra hard to mix in, however if you're using the side of the bottle to measure you MUST put in water first otherwise you're measurement will be off because of displacement (ie the powder formula will take up room in the bottle and you won't be adding enough water) that's why when you make say a 6oz bottle after you measure the water in and add the formula you actually end up with 6 1/2 oz in the bottle.

guess I'm the odd one out! I do pre- measure the water in a different containter...we use drop ins and I don't trust the measurements on the side for them. For some reason it gets super messy when I do water first... but that's probably just me! haha!
