  • I've never heated a bottle. Are you supposed to if it's powder formula? Oh well, my kids are off bottles so it's too late now.

  • When I pumped I heated it in a bottle warmer, when I formula fed I just used hot tap water

  • Yes I microwaved the Nursery water in the bottle before adding the formula. After my DD was off bottles someone told me your not supposed to microwave baby bottles but that was the only time I ever heard of it and the bottles were marked "microwave safe".

  • I just used warm water with formula. When I pumped, I would just put the bottle in a jar of hot water. Never microwave a bottle, because there can be hot spots and burn the baby's mouth. It's very dangerous and quite inconvenient, because then it's too hot and you have to wait anyway.

  • I heated my bottles where i could i was allways on the run .But regardless of where or how i heated them i allways heated half first shaked it and then put the rest in .Because if it was too hot the rest was able to kool it down .And i allways had that problem plus if i only used half bottle to heat this would happen quicker .

  • Your not supposed to heat in the microwave. It kills some of the nutrients. I only use hot water.

  • I heat in microwave, in a bpa free bottle, and I shake well after to distribute the heat...My kids are healthy and fine. I heat my leftover food in microwave too...they had to invent it for something.
