  • I took a glass that was bigger than the bottle, and put it in the sink under the faucet and let hot water run into it, all the way hot. then when it was getting hot, i put the bottle in and just let the hot water continue to run til the bottle was warm. worked well for us:)

  • I just always made my bottles as needed, i didn't have 30 in the frig. They don't take that long to make and you can use your boiled water or i used my hot filtered water. Also depends on how old your baby is,, doc says there is really no reason to serve hot bottles they can be room temp or luke warm, and i ended that about 6-7 mths. My baby gets a room temp bottle now. He is 10mths

  • Water on the stove. I turned it on until it reached a simmer, then turned it off and put the bottle in for a few minutes.

  • with my first I put it in the micorwave I know they say not to, but I did and I shoke it really well and then tested on my wrist. That was if they were from the fridge I usually made her bottles and put them in the fridge fr when I needed them then I would heat them. Or I would have bottled water and if I made a bottle from that I would just put it in the bottle without heating it because it was room temp. With my youngest I breastfed for 2 weeks so when I breastfed and stopped I had milk in the freezer that I used up and with breastmilk I wouldn't put in the micorwave (don't know why), but I would hold it under the faulset or I would put it in a cup with really hot tap water until it was warm. When I started using formula I used bottled room temp water so I didn't heat it.

  • I heated water in a pyrex measuring cup in the microwave and then put the bottle in the cup on the counter.
