I learned this tip when my kids were babies and screaming for their bottle. If you are the type that makes up a bottle as and when you need to, chances are that it is ALWAYS too hot for baby. I got around this by leaving a pitcher of water in the fridge so I could pop the made up bottle in the pitcher of cold water to cool it down to the right temperature in no time! I would put the pitcher with the bottle in it on the table. By the time I've picked up the baby and settled down in my chair, the bottle is perfect. Voila! No more screaming baby!

Here are questions related to Bottle Feeding Your Baby.
Both of my daughters are nurses - one an OB nurse - and they alway warm their bottles in the microwave. This was after they had weaned their babies, and had a lot of frozen breast milk stocked up. As far as worrying about "hot spots" in the milk, all you have to do is shake it up to even out the warmth. It only takes a matter of seconds to warm up a bottle. When they had to go to formula, then it was just a matter of warming up the water to mix it, and the microwave is still the quickest when you have a crying baby.
