Hia, I called the C&G helpline and they said that the feeds can be made up in advance but it was just that new guidance recommends that they are made fresh. To compromise, I only make up 3 at a time and keep them at the back of the fridge. If we are going out, I take a flask of boiling water and a wee container with the powder and when a feed is due I mix the two and put the bottle in a jug of iced water to cool it down, which takes about 5 mins. It does require some forward planning, but once you get "in the zone" its no bother!!
As for the poops, my daughters nappies were NUCLEAR and neither Pampers nor Huggies could contain the fallout! I switched to real nappies (Tots Bots Bamboozles are my fav!) and I have never had a leak!! They are magic and are seriously no hassle at all! With the amount of washing you do with a wee toot, its all relative. Plus, I am out and about all the time and don't find the real nappies restrictive at all. I highly recommend them, as they keep EVERYTHING contained and I am saving myself so much hassle, as I don't have to strip my daughter at 3 in the morning following an explosion!!
Hope this helps!!
