What age was your lo when you started?

Can you warm Mam bottles in the microwave?

Umm never done it - apparently the milk is heated unevenly if you do and you can get hot spots which will burn your baby's mouth.

Just heat it briefly then shake it well. Don't put the lid or teat on it though

I am unsure about doing it but dp is keen to as a friend of ours did the other day and the bottle was ready in a matter or minutes.

I thought it if you shake the bottle well it dispells the hot spots??

i heat a small amount of water in the microwave (say 1/3 of the feed) to boiling point, add the powder, then top up the remaining 2/3 with cooled boiled water. takes about 2 minutes to make a feed

far better than the packet instructions - if you follow those you also need a crystal ball to tell you when your baby might become hungry, so you have enough time to cool the feed down...
