When it comes to babies, Breastfeeding is best, and provides the ideal balanced diet and protection against illness. During pregnancy and after delivery, a mother’s diet should contain sufficient key nutrients. Professional guidance can be sought on diet and the preparation for and maintenance of breastfeeding. Infant formula is intended to replace breast-milk when mothers do not breastfeed. A decision not to breast-feed, or to introduce partial bottle-feeding, could reduce the supply of breast-milk. Once reduced, it is difficult to re-establish. Infant formula should be prepared and used as directed. Unnecessary or improper use, such as the use of unboiled water, unboiled bottles or incorrect dilution may present a health hazard. Social and financial implications, such as the preparation requirements and the cost of providing formula until 12 months of age, should be considered when choosing how to feed infants.

Our Baby Website mentions food, toddler milks and sometimes infant formula.

Warming Baby Formula

There may not be many situations where you will need to warm up a formula feed, but on the odd occasion when you do it’s important to know how to do it safely.

The best method of warming up a feed is by standing the bottle in a container of warm water. The time it takes to heat up the formula to the desired temperature will obviously be dependent on the temperature of the water and the volume of feed you’re heating up so this may just be a matter of testing until you get your system set up.

NEVER use a microwave to heat up your baby’s formula. Microwaves can heat milks unevenly and can create ‘hot spots’ which can easily burn your baby’s mouth.

It is not ideal to make up powdered formula in advance and then heat it up when you’re ready to use it. Preparation instructions on some packs do highlight this and recommend making up baby formula as you’re ready to use it.

There are of course times when you can use ‘Ready to Drink’ formula – which is ready-made formula in tetra packs, and these can be heated if you wish. It is important not to heat the baby formula in the tetra pack – you must pour the formula into a sterilised bottle to warm it up. Always follow the manufacturer’s instructions.
