Do not warm Nutramigen® A+® with LGG® as warming may limit the benefits of the LGG® culture. Most babies don’t seem to mind whether their bottle is warmed or straight out of the refrigerator. Some babies may prefer a consistent temperature from one feeding to the next.

If you want to take the chill off a bottle that has been in the refrigerator, we suggest that you run warm tap water over the bottle (for no longer than 15 minutes). Do not let water run over the nipple or bottle collar.

Shake bottle occasionally to evenly distribute the warmth.

Test the formula temperature before feeding. It should feel neither warm nor cold when dropped on your wrist.
