there is no reason except its a common belief that babies prefer this. i have given both my children cold formula and they had no problem with it as long as it wasn't ice cold. the USDA says not to warm bottles in micro cause it creates hot spots and if u warm it w milk in it you are creating bacteria. i run a childcare and am legally not allowed to warm bottles for these reasons but i give them room temp water that was boiled earlier that night or day.
Warming a bottle is not somethng that is a must, but some do it to take that chill off of it I warmed mine. But, part of it was because I was told to by the doctor for the first few months because of trouble feeding. And, My DD just got use to the warm so I kept it up..
Plus the person we lived with at the time kept the frig really cold..,,Warming is up to the parent..It wont hurt either way.
