Camping and Bottle Feeding

When we bought our massive tent and booked our trips I was BF and now I am FF so not sure the best way to approach this on holiday. We will only be going for 3/4 days at a time so what is the best thing to do when camping and bottle feeding?

I BF so probably not the best to advise but I would take a large container and some Milton so I could do some cold water sterilisation. I would also perhaps look into getting the cartons of ready made formula.

If you have an electric hook up then perhaps consider taking along your electric kettle?

This is exactly what we did last summer - the bottles smelled really strong of the sterilising tablets (I just used Tesco's own brand) but Daniel didn't seem to be bothered by the smell. I took a washing up bowl with us for sterilising the bottles which was only used for that purpose.

Have fun!

Or you could boil the bottles in a pot to sterilise too. It really all depends on what equipment and facilities you have to hand.
