As a young father (my baby now is 7 weeks old) I read a lot...
I've read (and some people also told me) that warwing up a feeding
bottle using a microwave oven is not recommended because the microwaves
cause molecular changes in some proteins of the milk.

But, at this time, nobody could confirm that or give me an more
scientific explanation.

If someone could provide me a answer that an engineer like me can
accept, it would be very nice.

Thank you very much for any information
