12 month old baby is on continuous feeding during night @ 32 ml/hr. Instead of putting total amount of formula in feeding bag at once, to infuse over 9-10 hrs, I think formula should remain refrigerated, warming 32 ml at a time with hot tap water and adding to feeding bag hourly. Directions on can say to discard remaining formula after 1 hour when using a baby bottle. Does the same apply to use of feeding bag?
No. The reason for the pump and bag is to hang the amount you need and the pump controls the flow. You may as well just stand with a syringe every hour and give him the formula if you're going to do it that way. Tube feeding is good for 24 hrs when in a feeding bag not being touched. The feeding doesn't have to be sterile. So put the amount you are supposed to give the baby in that time, and let the pump do its job.
