  • It is not recommended as bacteria can grow. There are usually warnings on the label about how long you can use a bottle.

  • eew no...would you drink milk if it had been sitting out for 3 hours?? probably not. Formula is only good for an hour after you make it, unless you refrigerate it...it says on the can
