I am just starting give my son formula after month of breast milk and do not want to be wasting the stuff. It says it is only good for 45 minutes once it is out of the fridge. I find it hard to believe that baby formula, which is milk based, expires so much faster than breast milk which can be unrefrigerated for up to 10 hours depending on the room temp. I think it is a ploy so the formula companies can make more money.
For moms who use formula - if your baby doesn't drink the whole bottle, but snacks for hours on one bottle like mine does, do you keep mixing new bottles every 45 minutes or do you let it go longer? I have a friend that has been treating formula like breast milk for 7 months now and her daughter has had no problems.

With my kids they always ate their bottles pretty fast so I wouldn't be making them. But I always stuck them back in the frig if they didn't and they grew up fine which wasn't often they scarfed their food
