The UK NHS's guidelines on formula preparation (pdf)
say that formula should be mixed with boiled water that is no cooler than 70oC, in order to sterilise it. But I've read on some blogs that mixing the formula with hot water also kills some vitamins and other good stuff in it. Does anyone know if that's right, and if so, how to remedy it without compromising sterility?
