    Default Formula Temperature

    I was just wondering if cold formula is ok or if it needs to be room temperature?

    For a little baby I don't think cold would be very comforting... Fine as a one off if you only have one in the fridge but room temp would be best I think.

    I just filled the bottles with boiling water and left them on the counter to cool. Then added formula when needed for a feed. So easy (so much more so than having to warm bottles when out and about!).

    Room temp, cold can give them a belly ache.

    Room temp.

    I fill bottles with boiled water and leave them on the bench in her room with a formula container.

    Makes it so much easier when out as well

    From about 3 months DD has always had EBM or formula straight from the fridge. We do live in Cairns, where a cold drink is always nice, but even when we have travelled it hasn't worried her in the slightest. I should point out that most people think it is a little odd, but it works for us.

    When my DD had her first cold (I forget what age, maybe about 4-5 months) she started refusing warm formula, only wanting room temp or refrigerated. So from then on we'd just give her room temp (cool, boiled water). So handy!
