heating formula in the microwave Lock Rss

I have been making my son's bottles for the day and then microwaving them when i need them, is this ok to do? I hear all sorts of old wives tales about it.

Hi,
Thank you for your enquiry. It is not recommended to heat a baby’s bottle in the microwave. A microwave heats from the inside and you are never really sure of the temperature. It is best to put the bottle into a jug of hot water, this only takes a few minutes and is much safer. I am aware, however, that many people do use the microwave to heat bottles. If you chose to do this it is best to be extremely careful, always test the temperature of the bottle before offering it to the baby and to only use your own microwave (as they all heat differently and some are a lot more powerful than others).
