between powder and pre mixedliquid formula which one did u ladies find was better, more filling, most convenient, and the most easy and satisfying for you and your baby? because i got this milk powder despensor that has 3 slots for the powder formula to go into. and i was told just to bring that, bottles of water and your babys bottle in your diaper bag. and your set for easy bottle making on the go. but now im hearing that the liquid formula is more convenient. dont you always have to heat those up though because once you open the liquid bottle you have to refrigerate it. what if im not around some where to heat it up? cani feed my baby both powder and liquid or is it best to just stick with one?

I like the powder. It's cheaper and you can carry a lot of it with you when going out.

Liquid formula is more expensive..... I have thethree container thing too for formulaand bring a water bolltle of water in the diaper bag and that has been pretty easy, my son is 7 months old now.

It is easy. I just put the water in the bottle to the amount of ounces and pour the powderwhen ready to use it.

I think they're equally filling. Liquid is more convenient when you're home. But powder is more convenient when you're not.

Liquid is way expensive, and yes it is convienient and you don't have to heat them up. I always packed a bottlewith water and put a couple scoops of formula in it when I needed it that way I don't waste it if she doesn't eat anything while were outand it's fresh.. Try not to get your baby use to warm water or else it may be hard to give him room temperature in the future.

I use powder because it's cheaper. If money were no object I'd probably use liquid because it's more convenient.

I use powder. It's easier, cheaper, and last longer.

The liquid already made only last for about 72 hours, and you have to keep it refridgerated. AND it only makes (or made for me) I think 3or 4 bottles. The powdered made soooo much more, lasted longer, and was over all better expense wise (not that I wouldn't spend an arm and a leg on my daughter)

Also when we weren't home, I could just use warm water to mix it real quick. If you pre-make them all, you do have to refridgerate them though

Oh and for the fulling part. I think the liquid may be a little more filling because it's thicker, but only a little bit

We used liquid. It was cheaper for us b/c I always had the $5 formula checks and so a bottle would cost us like 50 cents! I loved the disposable pre-made bottles as well- they were great to take with us when we were going out! My daughter also tolerated the pre-made better. She was a lot less gassy!

I used the liquid like once and I didn't like it much because it had to be refriderated and I wasn't big on warming my son's bottles. He liked them room temperature. The little cans of the ready to serve goodstart were really nice when I was traveling but powder just seems easier in general. I had a formula dispenser like you mentioned. I'd just put the water in the bottles and throw them in the diaper bag whenever we had to go somewhere.
