    It's a little cold, I have to heat it again.

    The milk for the baby is not warm anymore and have to warm the baby's bottle.
    Do you say "It's a little cold, I have to heat it again.” or "It's a little cold, I have to warm it again.”

    "Heat" or "Warm" is the more correctly used in the sentences above?

    Re: It's a little cold, I have to heat it again.

    "Heat it up again" would be common.

    Re: It's a little cold, I have to heat it again.

    For me, you could use:

    - Heat it again
    - Heat it up again
    - Heat it through again
    - Warm it up again
    - Warm it through again

    I believe you don't give "hot" milk to babies, just milk which has been warmed so I would be more inclined to use "warm" in the statement but I'm quite certain you will hear people using "heat".
    Remember - if you don't use correct capitalisation, punctuation and spacing, anything you write will be incorrect.

    You can also say 'reheat it'.
