How to re-heat milk replacer

Published On: February 22, 2021

Cooled formula should be re-heated prior to feeding by a warm water bath. Immerse bottle containing cooled formula in warm water until the milk reaches body temperature (38°C – 40°C). Do NOT microwave! Microwaving heats the formula unevenly, resulting in hot pockets that can scold the mouth and esophagus. Microwaving can also burn formula, creating a bad smell and taste.
