How do I check the temperature of the milk for my baby?

Postnatal, Your questions

I would like to ensure that the temperature of the milk I feed my 2-week-old baby with is all right. Thank you for all, Elizabeth.


For a little baby like yours, warming up your milk a little before feeding him is indeed better.

It will be easier for him to digest. Also, to properly cool the milk, it is advisable always putting the bottle in a container of hot water and ensuring to mix the milk thoroughly so that the temperature is fairly even. Then check with a few drops of milk on your inner wrist. If you don’t feel cold or hot, everything is fine to feed him. I hope that answers your question.

See you soon,

Marie
