  • I always have (except breast milk, of course). Why not, as long as you stir it well before serving?

  • No because its the easiest way for the baby to get burned, even when the food feels cold on the outside sometimes the inside is burning hot, and also it could get bpa into the food, for me its just not worth it.

  • Nope. She is still strictly on formula and surprisingly enough, she likes it cold. LOL It's sure been convenient for me!

  • I don't microwave anything for the entire family unless it is in glass or ceramic. There's other things besides BPA in plastic that are bad for you. Honestly, I'm thinking about doing away with the microwave altogether in the coming year. going to be all oven and crock pot!

  • i usually try not to, it zaps all the nutrients out of the food, same with boiling things for too long, steaming is better, or stove top, but there are always those matters of conveinience, we live in a world where we have these things so easily accesible, there is nothing wrong with using one but if you can or if you have the time i would suggest not using it when you can

  • All the time just make sure you stir it really well and then taste it yourself to make sure you don't have really hot spots.

  • I made his baby food and steamed it on the stove. When it was time to serve, I always served it room temp.
