The importance of feeding warm milk replacer

Published On: February 22, 2021

Formula should always be warmed to body temperature (38°C) prior to feeding. If you do not have access to a thermometer, check the temperature by testing a small drop on the back of your hand, which should be slightly warmer than the skin. Cold formula can induce vomiting/regurgitation, hypothermia, and slow gastrointestinal motility.
