  • i read that you aren't supposed to do it, because it lowers some vitamins in the milk but its not harmful or won't destroy the milk because it was heated on the stove for a minute right

  • The stove is the right place to heat breast milk. Never heat it in the microwave. I alway had a pot of water on the stove and took the bag out of the freezer. Don't let the water get to hot.... sometimes even running the bm bag under running, hot, tap water will warm it enough for baby to drink.
