Quoting Anonymous:How do you heat them? Or do you serve them room temp?
I kept room temperature bottles of water on the counter and pre-measured formula right next to it. As newborns, I did warm them, longer for my DD, but she was a preenie so had to wake her up to feed her.
I do... sometimes my baby screams a while, but it only takes maybe 5 minutes at the most, I put the bottle in a cup, and leave my hot water running into it with the bottle in there until it's warm. I try to distract him while it's warming up by changing him or playing with him. Sometimes it works, sometimes not.
I have a 5 month old I watch and I heat his bottles up in hot water. It takes about 3 minutes to heat them up. He is like clock work when it comes to eating so I pretty much know when I need to put the bottle in the water to start heating.
I did with Saylor. It took forever. I would warm a bottle though at the first sign of hunger. There were times at night I ended up wasting a bottle because I thought she was going to wake up and eat, but she stayed asleep. Bottle-feeding was such a hassle.
Mommy to little Miss. Saylor, and little Mr. Finley.
