Is your owlet fussy about the temperature of food/milk?

Michaela won't have her milk especially if it isn't completely neutral - not warm and not cold. She's getting better with her food.

With my other babies, they always wanted their food/milk very warm.

I have never given Pippa a bottle, so I'm not sure how she takes one for the sitter. As far as the bits of food she has had, they were not especially warm. The only foods she has really managed to get in her mouth are cheese and pickles.

lol mmmm...cheese and pickles. She has good taste!

I wouldn't be bothered about it except it can be a pain when she's crying for milk and we haven't got it quite right and have to go back and try again. I also noticed Daniel started with this at around age 1 and has never changed - everything has to be lukewarm to neutral for him, and I worry about whether it's a sign of her having the same rigidity over food that he has. Though, she started like this and is getting better at least with the solids, so perhaps not. Hence wanting to know if any other owlets are the same then at least I know she's not the only one and it might be developmental?

Noah is not fussy about his bottles at all except his first morning bottle - has to be warm or he wont drink it. He is very fussy about his food; it has to be warm or he refuses it.

When she took expressed milk, she didn't like it cold so I'd just run it under the hot water a bit longer. Now for foods - She doesn't care much. We do some puréed foods and if its cold she makes a silly face at first but doesn't mind.

The bits of solids that he's had are likely cold by the time he gets around to eating them after playing with them lol. He doesn't know any different though.

Hope she becomes a bit more flexible for you

The little boy I watch will take a bottle out of the fridge or room temp. Abby makes faces if I give her cold food but will sometimes eat it anyway. Milk has to be 98-99 degrees and fresh (not frozen). I think some babies are just naturally more picky (like adults).

Finn likes his food warm and a bottle warm.
He makes this sour face if I give him formula room temp. and then spits it up!

Theo does not like cold formula - it makes him catch his breath. He will take sips of cold water out of a mug though.
