Today I got myself a little 1.8 cu. ft. mini fridge for my bedroom.
I know I'm going to be formula feeding this baby and he will be sleeping in our bedroom at night until he STTN because our bedroom is upstairs and his bedroom is downstairs, so I figured it would be nice to have a mini fridge so I could store a night's worth of bottles and some cold drinks for myself.
When my DD was little, I just mixed up each bottle as she needed it, but in the middle of the night I'm not sure I was always the most accurate at mixing things up. I also remember one night pouring a full serving of freshly mixed formula into her Playtex drop-ins bottle...without remembering to put the drop-in in first. Screaming baby + formula all over the bathroom floor = bad.
I know my DH rolled his eyes when I told him I was going to buy a mini fridge if I found a good sale on one, but I don't care. I'm the one getting up in the middle of the night feeding this kid!
