Tori was a formula baby. I would pre measure the powder into sandwich bags and put warm water in a coffee thermos so it wouldn't get cold.

I make formula ahead of time depending on where we are going--and just keep it in a cooler bag. I also will take the powder premeasured out in 8oz and take a small 8oz water bottle. DS1 always had cold or room temp water (he hated waiting for it to warm up and I had another mother who had told me she always just gave it cold then if she was somewhere it couldnt be warmed it wasnt an issue. I started doing that and it made it a lot easier traveling and didnt bohter DS1. We've just done hte same with DS2
(I know alot of people dont agree with not warming it up, but it works for us and we haven't had any problems)

I usually take 2 or 1 and my "jug" of formula (we have a blender bottle I mix it in and hten just pour from it all day) I also keep the enfamil 2oz premades in the diaper bag just in case. (and did have to use them one day!)

We use some formula here and we use the little dispenser for the powder and fill up bottles with water, he drinks them room temperature. So easy.. just pour in powder and mix Smile
