How long to preserve milk
Hello, I have started bottle feeding. Once I mix the milk powder and prepare the milk, how long can I preserve it? Should I wash off the bottle immediately or can I give the same bottle milk after few hours?

Bottle feeding is not recommended. It can cause nipple confusion and moreover raises chances of infection. If you have to top feed,  always prefer wati chamcha. Once prepared the formula should ideally be discarded within an hour or so. Although it is always preferred to give it when it is lukewarm not cold. Also wash the bottle immediately after use and sterilize it prior to each use.
