A member asked:

Do I have to warm formula?

Dr. Peter OKeefe
Specializes in Pediatrics
No: There is no overwhelming reason to warm formula. Most mothers prefer not to warm the formula so, when out or traveling, mothers don't need to find a warming solution if one is not available. It's easy to pack bottles of water and formula powder and when the infant requires a bottle, simply mix the appropriate amount formula powder with the water in the bottle and you have a bottle ready.
A member asked:

Is generic formula as good as name brand formula?

Dr. Irwin Berkowitz
Specializes in Pediatrics
No: In theory it is probably as good although quality control is a very important issue since babies are exclusively formula fed for the first six months. Any reduction in essential elements can lead to deficiencies in the baby and their consequences. Therefore i recommend only the brand name formula with which I have extensive experience.
