  • throw it out. If the baby's mouth came in contact with it, there has been a transfer of bacteria to the formula. Bacteria grows very rapidly (doubles every 20mins or so). The sugar in the formula is a haven for bacteria growth.

  • look at it this you want to drink milk that has been left out for an hour?
    the milk begins to spoil as well as bacteria growth from the saliva/

  • Even in water bacteria grows. Even water that has sat out for an hour is more filled with bacteria then it was the hour previous.
