Should your baby be fed at cool, warm, or room temperature 

You can serve your baby's formula at room temperature from the beginning and avoid the bottle heating process all together. Most hospitals serve formula at room temperature.

Avoid serving cold formula from the fridge, as it might cause tummy discomfort for the baby. 

Lots of babies thrive on room temperature bottles and never have a heated bottle. 

Cutting out the warming process helps speed things up, especially in the middle of the night.
