BabyCenter's "Doctor Moms Tell All"

Q: I can't make a bottle fast enough for my crying baby.  Shortcuts?
Dr. A: fill a pitcher with formula and pour it into bottles as needed, or make several bottles in the morning
Dr. B: plan ahead & use premeasured formula packets, don't worry about warming
Dr. C: sometimes you can't be a magician, and you don't want your baby to cry too long. but don't be too hard on yourself, just go as fast as you can.
Dr. SuperMom the lactivist: Learn your baby's early hunger cues so s/he doesn't have to resort to crying.  breasts don't have to be made, they are instantly ready and always warm.  Do yourself and your baby a favor and breastfeed.
