The Right way for Warming Your Baby's Feed

By Nabta Team

Care must be taken while warming the milk for a baby’s feed: bring the milk to room temperature by running it under lukewarm water, or placing it in a container with warm water for 5 minutes, but DO NOT microwave the refrigerated milk, be it formula or breast milk. Microwaving causes uneven heating and could result in burns even if the milk appears to be right temperature when you test it.
