    Default Warming formula in microwave??????

    Hi ladies
    I boil the kettle to use that water for her bottles. But once it cools I need to reheat once its feed time. Can I reheat in microwave??? I've been doing it in a cup of hot water but if I'm just heating the water before adding formula can I do it in microwave. It would just be quicker especially at night feeds. My bub is 4 weeks old

    I used to heat it in the microwave for DD1. With DD2 I just didn't heat it. Used the water at room temperature - that's what I'd recommend.

    I always use the microwave to heat bottles. I know they say not too because of heat spots but I think if you shake it well enough that shouldn't be a problem. I heat the water then add the formula as it mixes much better in the warm water and that way you shake it enough to disperse any hot spots.

    I sometimes just switch the jug back on to reheat, just for 20 or 30 seconds depending on how much water is in it. Otherwise I use the microwave :-)

    I don't heat any of my bottles, did at first but then one day I didn't have access to a microwave so gave it at room temp and he didn't give a stuff. So he now gets them all at room temp and has been this way since 2 weeks old. So much quicker and easier, especially for those ñight feeds.
