  • It can be put in for an hour to two hours but must be disposed after. The saliva from the baby will cause the formula of breast milk to get bacteria in the bottle.

  • Yes...make sure to use it up by the next feeding. Don't leave it sitting in the fridge for a long time.

  • Yes! I never heat my babies bottles, and I use regular tap water! It is actually recommended, because it helps make their immune system stronger! If you place the bottle in the fridge, use a different nipple at feeding time! GL
