Bottles

When feeding LO from a bottle, do you wam it up? During the winter I did, but now that's warmer and some days even hot I don't anymore (just her night one); we keep her water at room temperature.

She doesn't mind at all, on the other hand DS wouldn't drink a cool or "not warm enough" bottle at all until he weaned at 13-14 months (but he'd drink cold water and juice)

    I just do room temperature water.  DS seems to drink it any way...cold, room temp,  or warm.  I never warmed his bottles so that he didn't get used to it that way, so I've never needed to warm them.

  • R is picky and takes it not only warmed up but on the warmer side of warmed up!

    The other day it was so warm out so I didn't warm it up as hot and she refused it until I warmed it up more!
  • I never warm DD's bottles. She always drinks room temp, and we've never had any issues. Just more convenient IMO.

  • We do warm it, but it's often coming from the fridge.  We warm it to like, skin temperature/room temperature.  Basically just take the chill off.  DD is fairly particular and doesn't like cold bottles.  Room temp is fine though. 

    We always heated DS's bottles too.

  • I don't warm them anymore. DS takes it either way so it just cuts out a step!

    Am I the only one that uses tap water?

  • I warm the water before mixing formula if I'm home, but on the go I'll use room temp water from a water bottle to mix formula. Breastmilk bottles I either warm in some hot water or even just pull them straight from the fridge, shake, and serve.

    DH hates giving DS room temp or cold bottles because he 'likes the drowsy effect' that warm bottles have on DS. DS himself could care less the temp of his bottles, but I like giving him cool bottles on hot days.

    Nope. I use tap water to mix formula. And my 'bottled water' on the go is from the tap. :)

    No, she doesn't mind so I don't see the point.

    we tried but she got constipated, so we had to go back to mineral water (and had to try 3 brands until we finally find one that worked for her) However we all drink tap water, including DS

    This is the same for us too. I just use the room temp water at night because I fill up the bottles before I go to bed and let them sit there until DS wakes up, then I just dump the formula in.
