Formula-feeding mums, if you have not yet discovered milk powder dispensers, I recommend that you get yourself down to your local baby store and invest in some. They are one of the most useful things to have around when you have a baby (or two) screaming for a feed.
These handy little pots allow you to measure out formula in advance, so when feeding time comes you just tip it into the water in the bottle, shake and go (no need to warm). It is much harder than you think to concentrate on counting out level scoops of powder with a baby crying in the background.
I personally love the Tommee Tippee ones as they can even be put inside the bottle to minimize the amount of space taken up in your diaper bag / kitchen. At least once a day we measure out 24 hours worth of formula so that we’re always ready to go. That’s a lot of dispensers but it’s so reassuring to have it all ready, and if you drop one in your sleep-deprived state there’s always extra on hand – fabulous!
Note: as always, I have no connection to any brands mentioned in the post.
