Boil water and let the milk warm up that way. Microwaving kills antibodies and creates hot spots

well thats what I thought but tonight while working the consession stand the cheer coach had us warm her BB in the micro and when I questioned it she was like "oh no my ped told me I could"  I knew when I was BF I always used warm water and even daycare kids I did the same way. so I thought maybe something had changed.

No. Warm it up in a bottle submerged in hot water.
