3 month old only drinks hot milk
« on: April 04, 2014, 07:52:43 am »
This is something new. I`ve noticed that the warmer the milk is the more she drinks.
If its not warm enough she refuses to drink even when she is very hungry.
I`ve tried having boiled water in thermos but its not warm enough for her.
I dont mind getting up at night and making it hot, but since she already has problems with her tummy (reflux) I worry if this can cause more problems.

The only issue with hot milk is making sure that she doesn't scald her mouth. I'd be very concerned about that, especially if hot water from a thermos isn't hot enough as we always had to cool bottles made from a flask!

Thanks Laura.
I am careful about that. I was talking with dh and something he said made me wonder about weather drinking that hot is good for her.

All three of my kids drank very warm/borderline hot bottles and it has never bothered them. DD3 has to have hers re-warmed halfway through or she won't finish (like literally 5 minutes after I make it!).

Actually when we were for a check up last week while helping me to get the baby dressed the doctor held her bottle and said its to hot and we need to lower the temperature because its not good for her stomach 
But she doesnt drink more then 90/100mls if its not hot.
So now Im thinking maybe I can separate the milk in two bottles, give her one while the other is worming up  :-\
Complicated I know, or Im open to ideas  :)

My DS was like this too.  MIL and FIL could NEVER get him to eat anything because they would never warm the bottle up enough.

^^^ my DH has that same issue!

I'm not sure I understand how the dr thinks it is bad for her stomach?? If it was hot enough to cause pain she would not drink it...I guess I kind of see it the same as how I like piping hot coffee or tea and if it bothered them surely I would have seen some sign of it  :-\
