    We didn't start at room temp but moved to room temp in the first few months as that's what Bub preferred.

    Yep we've done this Dd has been on formula now for the last 2 months. Bottles have always been at room temperature. I've never had any issues with this & she's always taken to them easily. Makes it very easy when going out & about

    my bub will take it cold if it's not warmed up to room temp. like not icy but def a few degrees under room temp. there's no issue at all.

    just be careful making up formula and leaving it at room temp. made up formula needs to be used within an hour of coming out of the fridge. so prob not a good idea to have it made up and at room temp for very long.

    Same as TC, my son will pretty much take whatever unless it's straight from the fridge.

    We did an overseas flight and got him used to room temp beforehand; he was fine.

    Personally, I prefer to make them when the water is still warm, as I find the formula dissolves better. Then I'll leave them out of the feed is less than 3 hours away, or refrigerate them.

    Travel was painful, but we did it. If you're flying, the air crew will generally warm your water (in the bottle) before you mix it. Takes some planning on the plane, since they aren't always available when you need them, but you'll manage.

    How long is the trip?

    Yup, DD drinks it at room temperature. Much easier as I have the bottles filled with water and the formula in one of those dispenser things and therefore don't need to worry about it going off. Just mix when needed

    Yes I did this from the start (well when we got home).. I boiled water and let it cool/just get warm on the bench and would add the formula when needed.

    I did in summer but for winter i used a small mini thermos and tipped out 30 ml of the colder water and added 30 ml of the hot water to make it nice and warm.
