    Default Expressing- warming milk

    How do you warm your expressed breastmilk?

    I will store in fridge for upto 3 days for 6 m/o DS but wondering how others warm their expressed milk?

    I put the bottle or bag in a bowl of warm water and wait until it gets to room temperature.

    Pop it in warm water until it gets to the right temp. Never microwave.

    I microwave but I know it destroys the nutrients. I figure for the very odd bottle I give its not going to hurt.

    I put the bottle in a jug of hot water. Though my life got a lot easier when I discovered that she would drink it straight from the fridge.

    We always just gave milk at room temp or cold if not long out of fridge and ds never minded. It makes life a lot easier. Try it and see. Otherwise running under hot tap for about a minute.

    Small jug of hot water will do the trick quite quickly.

    I also invested in an Avent bottle warmer with DD as we fed EBM full time, it was great!

    Side note: I only ever keep EBM in the fridge for 48 hours max. There are varying guidelines around but I erred on the side of the lower recommendation.

    Warm water. I'd leave it in the bag to warm, then pour into a bottle.

    We also warm it up in warm water (my mum likes using a saucepan). Ds will also drink it cold though.
