With my first two I gave it to them at room temperature because its a lot easier when you aren't at home instead of trying to find somewhere that would heat it up for you. My daughter started out drinking it cold because it was the only way she would stay up and finish a bottle. she was a preemie so her gaining weight was very important, but once she started finishing two oz we just went to room temp...so far so good

My son will only drink room temperature he was born during a heat wave so we started him on room temperature and now at 14 months absolutely everything he drinks and eats he likes room temperature, I cant complain it is so much more convienant plus we always used bottled water so wed pre fill his bottles and just carry some formula with us and in 2 second hed have a bottle ready

I am getting so much encouragement from you ladies on this subject because I needed to know if I was doing something wrong or something that was harmful to my daughter by feeding her a room temp bottle or even a cold bottle straight out of the fridge like on a warm day. Plus when I looked on the can it doesn't tell you to serve cool or warm so I guess it definitely depends on your child and his/her tolerance level. I bbreastfeed my 2mos old at night and formula feed her the concentrated infant in the yellow. She hasn't spit up much and she tends to finish her correct amount due to the Dr telling me she a bit underweight and ever since i changed to the room temp bottle she is ok now!!!

i made enough bottles for the day. My son would NOT drink warmed bottles! He refused. He drank right from fridge or room temp

i warmed my formula for zach, he wouldnt even take room temp at first. but slowly i have been serving it cooler and cooler now he takes it room. he is 8 months tho so it took me awhile to get to that point.

My daughter never liked room or warm temp bottles. She LOVES cold milk and formula.

I heated formula up when my babies were little, but after about 5 months, I just used it at room temp.

if your baby takes it like that room temperature is fine it just saves you the hassle of having to warm it up.
i however wouldn't give it cold as it isn't good for their tummy.

room temp is fine. sometimes i would have to give it to him a bit chilled to. like at a restaurant when they bring out cold water. he prefers it room temp or a little warmed, but my chunk will eat it either way. [=

I always gave my kids warm milk or formula. I have four kids and eventually they drank it room temperature too.

i think room temp is perfect! I only ever warmed it up if it had been in the fridge

Start w/room temperature, if your baby doesn't like it then warm it up, however! NEVER PUT a baby bottle in the microwave, it is not safe for a few reasons. Just run hot water over it (from the tap).

its known to cause cramps if they drink cooled or cold formula, which is painful for them

i always did if your will more power to you, although i had a friend who didnt just got it out of the tap, and theyre baby would spit up alot due to it not settling on their stomach and he was really fussy bc of it. So i would say yes

With my son, I had always given him warm formula.... On a really hot day I tried to give him a slightly cooler temp formula and he absolutely hated it!! Though I just kept lowering the temp a lil at a time and now he will drink any temp as long as it is not cold. But the point of my blubbering is that whatever temp you start with and use the most is what they are going to prefer...

No you do not have to heat up the formula. It isn't necessary for consumption, however some babies perfer warm milk over cool milk. I would first off room temp and if he doesn't like it warm it up.
