Well I always make up a pitcher in the evenings for the next days' use.... but it gets used by the next night.

I have made a bottle up and not used it for an hour or two.... I stretch the "one hour" rule if we are out running around. But if it doesn't get used by then, it either goes in the fridge or gets thrown out. If she hasn't eaten from it, I really stretch it, but if she has, then I am more careful to not let her eat it much longer than an hour later.

Honestly, if it's been sitting out, I sniff it. If it smells sour I throw it out. If it smells fine I give it to her. Regular milk powder formula only lasts an hour or so out of the fridge, but soy formula can go a lot longer.

I've never had a problem as long as it doesn't smell sour.

We make a pitcher the night before for daycare so those are used within 24 hours. If i make one in the middle of the night and she goes back to sleep I don't let it out of the fridge for more than a hour. If it comes out of the fridge premade and we are going out I will put it in an ice pack and no more than 4 hours.

Maybe 3 hours- that is when I just have fed him and I know that I going out and will need to feed again, I will make the bottle up.

24 hours. I use to make up 5-6 bottles (what she would eat in a day) and left them in the fridge.

I wait to make the formula until she is hungry, so never long at all.

I make bottles on demand, never in advance, so within an hour. Very seldom if we've been busy or out and about I'll stretch it to 90 minutes, but only if it smells okay.

we were making a pitcher, but found it a nuisance to warm them up. so now I make up each bottle with water, then have the travel formula containers ready on the counter as is.

I strictly follow the one hour rule if he's started eating from it.......my oldest was a projectiler and I think that was a small contributor to it......daycare was stretch it out to 2-3 hours.
