Hi LKVM and Fuz,

Do you give the fresh milk cold out from the fridge? I'm actually ok with this, but my mil always nag that by letting her drink the cold fresh milk, she will cough, catch a cold lah.....

Cold drinks will momentarily contracts the wind-pipe and may induce coughing, especially on young children and those with respiratory issues.

if they are healthy and not nursing a cold or cough, yup most times they drink cold.

If they are not feeling well, will warm the milk up for them.

For mine, I actually pour out the milk (straight from the fridge) and let the cup of milk sit for a while on the table. So at least when the kids take it, its not so cold.

For my gal who's coming 6yrs old this year, she started fresh milk since 5years old. I just leave the milk out for 5mins then she will drink.

For my son who is coming 2, I will warm up the fresh milk in a cup of hot water coz he doesn't like cold stuffs yet. :D

so far my kids have no problems with cold stuff. DS use to down a cup of yoghurt every morning. But for that I will take an unopened cup from the fridge while he is washing up. When he eats it, it's still slightly chilled but not cold.

was told dairy products breed bacteria very quickly, so I prefer to warm the milk over low fire in a pot when they are nursing a cold. No need to be steaming hot, just so that the milk is like room temp.
