You may warm a prepared feed before feeding your baby, but it’s not essential

If you have to use a pre-prepared bottle of Diamond pro+ Premium Infant Formula or Follow-on Formula, the best way to rewarm it is by standing it in a container of warm water:

Step 1

Make sure the level of warm water in the container is below the teat of the bottle, or below the lid of the feeding cup.

Step 2

Stand the bottle or feeding cup in the warm water, occasionally swirling the bottle or feeding cup around to make sure it heats evenly.

Step 3

Leave the bottle or cup in the water for a maximum of 15 minutes. Check the temperature of the formula on the inside of your wrist before feeding your baby. It should feel warm, but cool is better than too hot.

Step 4

Feed your baby immediately. Discard any feed that has not been consumed within 1 hour.

Commercial warmers can also be used to rewarm feeds, so long as they have a thermostat control and you carefully follow the manufacturer’s instructions.
