The American Academy Of Pediatrics, offers a tip on preparing Infant formulas...
"Remember that formula made with hot water needs to be cooled quickly to body temperature—about 98 degrees F—if it is being fed to the baby immediately."-

MY QUESTION: How is this done?- cooled quickly to body temperature-for immediate feeding


If it's not being fed immediately I assume it may be stored in fridge after it is made with hot water.

I don't know. I always used bottled water kept at room temp. & I know you can keep those kind of pre-made bottles in the fridge, although I can't remember for how long....but the formula container will say for how long.
