  • I never heated it, and both of my children are fine. I believe that it is a matter of personal choice...JMO

  • i don't heat the baby food or even my babies formula. on the package it said that you didn't need to heat the bottle - that basically it was whatever your preference or your babies was. So i just started it at room temperature that way it would be easier to make her a bottle when we were out and about. The same reasoning for the baby food.

  • I usually heated the veggies for my son and left the fruits at room temperature. I actually asked the pediatrician about heating it and they told me just whatever I prefer to do is fine b/c babies can't really tell the difference since it's only slightly heated anyway.

  • I served it room temp and only heated after refridgeration. And really, with the fruits I let those stay cold. It gave the babies a wide range of temperatures to learn. Theres nothing wrong with not heating it. And don't forget to test the temp alllll around the food. Especially in microwave heating as it can heat unevenly. I would stir, and put my tongue on each bite to test it if it was still pretty warm.
