How warm is breast milk?

13 September 2010 8 Responses

Question by *Charli* Mamma Di Gemini’s: Okay I know this question sounds so goofy, but i really am interested to know.

I breast feed my boys but never pumped or anything like that. When they went to a bottle, they wouldn’t drink it until it was really warm. I was thinking about it today and thought someone might know!

    it is body temp when first pumped but just like heated food when it hits the air it can cool down which most babies can tell the difference at first.

    Breast milk is 98.6 degrees — same as body temperature.

    Yep it’s body temp, or sometimes even a little higher. The breasts respond to the presence of your baby by heating up even higher then your regular body temp.
