Warming Bottles and Infant Foods

Bottles and infant foods can be served cold from the refrigerator and do not have to be warmed. If a caregiver/teacher chooses to warm them, or a parent requests they be warmed, bottles should be warmed under running, warm tap water; using a commercial bottle warmer, stove top warming methods, or slow-cooking device; or by placing them in container of warm water. Bottles should never be warmed in microwaves. Warming devices should not be accessible to children.
