How to Warm a Bottle for Your Baby

A hungry, crying baby wants their milk right away and won’t understand waiting just a minute or two for you to warm up their bottle safely.

But why do we heat baby bottles? And what’s the best way to warm them safely and quickly to minimise baby’s tears?

Why should you heat up baby’s milk?

If you’re formula feeding, it’s recommended that you make up a bottle fresh. To make up a new bottle you need to use hot water so that bacteria found in the formula powder can be killed.

But also, babies like their milk warm. When babies are breastfed, milk is naturally at body temperature, so babies usually prefer milk that’s warmed to body or room temperature when they’re feeding from a baby bottle.

Warmed milk is easier for baby to digest, as they don’t need to use extra energy to warm it up in their tummy. So some parents find that warm milk is less likely to cause baby to have tummy aches. If you’re reheating a pre-prepared bottle the idea is just to warm a baby bottle by gently raising the temperature, not to make the milk feel hot.

Choosing the type of bottle (and nipple) you want to use

There are a wide range of different baby feeding bottles to choose from and what you choose is very much up to you and your baby. Some babies will prefer the feel of a particular teat and you may have to try a few before you find the one that’s best for you.

If you’re transitioning from breastfeeding to bottle feeding, a teat that feels and moves like a breast should make the switch easier. All Tommee Tippee teats are shaped, move and stretch just like mum’s breast, because that’s what babies like.

Baby bottles are made from glass, plastic or these days, silicone. If you’re using plastic bottles, check that they’re BPA free. And always check the manufacturer’s instructions for cleaning, sterilising and warming any baby bottles.

How to heat up a baby bottle


Don’t heat your baby milk in a microwave. Microwaves don’t always heat things evenly, so even if your baby bottle feels okay on the outside, there can be hot spots in the milk that could scald your baby’s mouth. Overheating breast milk destroys the precious nutrients it contains.

It’s safer to use a baby bottle warmer or some warmed tap water to warm your baby’s bottle.

Bottle warmer

This is probably the easiest way to heat up a bottle of breast milk or formula that’s been stored in the fridge or freezer. Bottle warmers are usually fast and easy to use and take the guess work out of warming baby’s bottles to that ideal body temperature.

Make sure that the bottle warmer you choose is suitable for the types of baby bottles you’re using and always follow the instructions.

Boiling water

There’s no need to boil water to warm baby’s bottle. Remember, you’re just trying to gently warm the milk inside to body temperature. Fill a jug or bowl with warm water. The water should be hot enough to heat the bottle, but cool enough so that you can place your hand in it.

Place baby’s bottle in the warm water for no more than 15 minutes. Once the bottle is warmed, swirl it gently to make sure all the milk is warmed evenly, but avoid shaking as this can introduce air bubbles.

How to check for the perfect temperature

Have you ever wondered why people squirt milk from baby’s bottle on their wrists to test the temperature? It’s because the skin on the inside of your wrist is thin and sensitive, just like your baby’s, so this serves as a reliable guide. It should feel neutral – not too warm and not hot.

Bottle Warming FAQs

Is the perfect temperature the same for both breast milk and formula?

Breast milk comes from mum at a natural body temperature of around 37°C/99°F. So if you’ve cooled breast milk to store it or if you’re making up a bottle of formula, you should warm baby’s bottle to about the same temperature.

Can babies drink cold formula?

Yes they can. There’s no harm in giving your baby formula that you haven’t warmed up, as long as it was made up with hot sterile water and stored in a fridge after cooling. But babies tend to prefer their milk warm as that’s what they’re used to and it’s easier for tiny tummies to digest.

Does warm milk make babies sleep better?

Among the many wonderful things about breast milk is that it contains tryptophan, a substance that encourages the brain to produce the sleep hormone melatonin, so it’s most likely this that makes baby feel sleepy after feeding. Tryptophan can also be found in baby milk formula and in dairy products.

Warmed milk is easier for baby to digest too so less chance of discomfort at bedtime.

Can you overheat a baby bottle?

Yes and it’s really not a good idea. Overheating breast milk destroys the natural nutrients it contains. Rapidly heating and then cooling baby bottles can also cause baby bottles to become misshapen or damaged, which can encourage bacteria to grow inside.

Can you reheat breast milk and formula?

Bacteria can form in any milk especially when saliva gets into it during feeding, which is why you should not refrigerate and reheat any milk that you give to baby.

You should always use warmed formula to feed baby immediately and never reheat it. The ideal is to prepare formula as and when needed.

Bird feeder

On an autumn or winter evening, don't forget to make your own bird feeder with your child.
This is a great occasion for a child to do something useful, to take care of birds. In addition, it is very funny to look at the birds flying to the feeder, to observe their behavior, even if they are ordinary sparrows.

Each sparrow has its own character. One is nimble and brave, the other follows his relatives and does not dare to come closer. Probably new in these parts ... And what a joyful feeling overwhelms the child, if suddenly a titmouse or a nuthatch, a starling or a bullfinch flies up. nine0003 It doesn't take long to make a bird feeder. The feeder can be made very quickly, in minutes.

Plastic bottle bird feeder

An ordinary 1.5 liter plastic bottle will do just fine for a bird feeder. A plastic bottle can be found in every home. A 5 liter bottle or canister is even better. They have a wider bottom, so there is more space for birds.
To make a feeder, it is enough to cut a side hole in the bottle. It is better to make a larger hole in the bottle. Even better, make it through by cutting out two or four holes so that the birds can take off from the feeder at any time. nine0004

Bird feeder from a plastic bottle

First, draw a hole on the bottle with a marker, and then use a knife or scissors to cut the bottle along the contour. Here you can’t do without adults, because. even an ordinary plastic bottle is quite difficult to cut.
Cover the edges of the bottle with electrical tape or tape so that they are not so sharp and it is more convenient for the birds to hold on to the feeder.
So that the feeder does not sway too much on the bottom, you can put sand or earth in a plastic bag and pour food on top. nine0004

Bird feeder out of a box

The quickest and easiest way to make a bird feeder is to make a bird feeder out of a box.
Any box is suitable for a feeder: from under shoes, from under juice, from under sweets, etc. It is necessary to cut holes in the box, leaving a side at the bottom (at least 3 cm), thread the rope and the bird's dining room is ready!

Cardboard bird feeder

It will be very convenient for the birds if you stick a pencil, stick or any twig in the feeder. nine0004

Hang the feeder in your yard so you can see it from your window. You can attach the feeder directly to the window or on the balcony. The optimal height is from 1.5 to 3 meters. But it happens that even on the 10th floor, feeders are in great demand among birds.

The most important thing is that there is always food in the feeder. Pour it in more. A light feeder will be more stable. Remind your child to feed regularly.

Hanging bird feeder

Another easy way to make a bird feeder is to make an edible hanging feeder. Such a feeder is especially liked by forest birds: titmouse, goldfinches. nine0004

Simple hanging bird feeder

To prepare this edible bird feeder you will need:

  • - Bird food
  • - Lard or gelatine plain
  • - Mold (cup, cookie mold)
  • - Wire (25-30 cm)
  • - Rope

Make a loop at one end of the wire. We wind the other end of the wire into a loose ball. This is necessary so that the feed sticks well to the wire. If you leave the wire straight, the clump of food will simply fall off. nine0003 Then you need to melt the lard over low heat and mix it with bird food to make a thick mixture. Gelatin can be used instead of lard.
Next, put the crumpled end of the wire into the prepared mold and fill it with a mixture of feed and lard so that only a loop of wire remains. Now you need to put the form in the freezer for several hours so that everything freezes well. When the mixture hardens, remove the molds. It remains only to tie a rope to the eyelet and hang beautiful and edible feeders in the garden. Such "pies" can also be hung in small colorful nets. nine0004

What to feed the birds

Almost all small birds have a favorite dish - sunflower seeds, they should be small and, of course, not fried. Clever birds do not swallow seeds whole, with a skin, but skillfully peck out a grain.
In addition, egg shells, millet and wheat can be added to the feeder.
The child must understand that feeding the birds is not only an important matter, but also a responsible one.
