I am having trouble identifing dangling modifers.

example: If your baby does not like cold apple juice, it should be heated.

What is the best way to identify dangling modifers?

This is the absolute BEST website I've found that explains dangling (and other misplaced) modifiers AND how to fix them.

In the case of this sentence, the word "it" is the problem. What is "it" referring to? The baby or the juice? It's not clear. So to clear up any confusion, you should probably rephrase the entire sentence rather than try to fix this one.

Let me know what you come up with.
