What are your bottle feeding must haves? Is a bottle warmer essential? Do you make the formula that morning or as needed? I saw a formula pitcher and was wondering. How many bottles should I buy? Lol I have no clue. I breastfed both my girls 18 months. They never had bottles. TIA

When I used bottles with Betsy, I never worried about a bottle warmer. Usually, I just made her bottles on at a time, so they were always at room temp. She stayed with family members for daycare, so I just gave them the dry formula and had them do the same thing. I think at one point I had 8 bigger bottles -- it was enough to get through the day (I used the Avent ones).

I am using Avent natural. I have 5 4oz. Will that be enough or should I buy more to start with? Thanks, Amy!

When the twins were newborns they ate every 2-3 hours during the day with bottles.

I made up bottles as I went during the day. I'd make a batch of night time bottles so I wouldn't have to think. I'd warm water in the microwave or hot from the tap and have it in a cup. I'd put the cold bottle inside the cup with the hot water. I only warmed up the bottle so that it wasn't freezing.
