Should I warm up cow's milk for my dd?

MY dd is 12 months and going on to Cow's milk, I usually make her formula with room temperature water, should I be warming up the cow's milk so it's not so cold, if so how?

  • You can but it's not necessary unless she won't take it cold

  • You don't have to warm up cow's milk I never did!I just gave them the milk and it was something new to them! You can warm it up in a pot or mico wave for a few minutes!

  • I think it depends on your DD. If she didn't take cold milk, just warm up a bit. I didn't give cold milk to my girls when they were little but actually they preferred it, I found out later. As to my boy, he just doesn't like to take milk cold so I have to warm up the milk a bit 3 times/day even in this kind of hot summer days.

  • Sure you can. I warm up my daughter's milk to room temp. She doesn't like it straight from the fridge.

  • I wouldn't get her started on warm milk. When you get it out its not going to be warm. Just give it to her cold.

  • No, do not even start her with warm milk. Just give it to her cold and let her get used to it. Warm milk is nasty.

  • Warm milk actually promotes sleep, so I've heard from my family, who have given it for years and years to the kiddos who don't want to go to sleep! I enjoy a cup now and then with my DD when we're up a little late together.
    We put a coffee mug of the milk in the microwave for about a minute, just make sure it doesn't boil. Add some sugar if you or the kiddo don't like the taste so much, but not too much, if it's bedtime, obviously.
