I'll be introducing formula in a few weeks and I know the new guidelines to mix it with boiled water over 70 degrees and then cool it to drinking temp quickly and give to baby etc - but what is drinking temperature? is it the same as body temp of around 37 degrees? or room temp which is more like 20?
Obvioulsy, I will test it on my arm, but if I had a temp to work to it would stop me from worrying that I was going to scold her.
thanks for the replies - dd will be about 6 months when I start and I have exclusively bf so far, but have always struggled to express so I thought I'd give the odd bottle here and there so that I can leave her with parents every now and again.
I am having huge guilt issues about it though, I may well completely change my mind and just stick with the bf, after all she'll start solids about that time.
I like to know all the details before I start anything.
