Ok, I guess I'm "cramming" here and don't know why. This baby isn't even going to be here for, according to ticker, 14 weeks and 1 day. I guess I feel a little overwhelmed because I'm not sure what I need to ask, when, how, where. (I need to stay out of books and off websites for a few days or something!! I'm sounding stupid. I keep reading about storage of bm. How long it's good in the fridge, the freezer and to thaw in warm water or the fridge over night. Ok, here is the question that I keep looking for an answer too: ( I have a notebook that I write things down in!!!! I'm really losing it.)
What is the best way to warm bm? Is it safe to use a bottle warmer? I know it says not to microwave so I know that option is out. Any suggestions to go into my 1001 "Care for Baby" notebook???
I think I might need a nap and a "chill" pill.
Ok I'm going to leave well enough alone now. My friends think that I have lost it and I'm beggining to wonder myself. I'm sure this is all natrual to be feeling and thinking. I'm just not use to being "out of control" with my emotions. This is just all new to me. I guess I will learn to live with it.

Ask away girl! That's what we are here for. Its better to research and ask now than to feel helpless and confused after the baby is born.
Right, you're not supposed to warm it in the microwave--something about it zapping all the nutrients out of it. I would simmer some water on the stove then put the bottle of cool or frozen breastmilk in the water. Keep shaking/stirring the bottle so there are no hot spots. And check it often so it doesnt over heat.
