I intend to try breast feeding for the first few months and the going onto bottles, but (and I know this may seem stupid) I never considered how to heat up the bottles before until I recently saw a small bottle warmer! No-one has mentioned needing a bottle warmer yet. Do I need one? Any recommendations?
Do you mean expressing breast milk or using formula when moving onto bottles?
If formula then you are supposed to make up the feed up to an hour before you use it. I used a thermos flask and carried slightly cooled boiled water and would make up feed as and when I needed it. The main problem was cooling down the feed! I never used a bottle warmer and IMO you don't need one.
I also has a powder dispenser which was fantastic when out and about as you could measure out the powder and put into seperate compartments.
Thank you everyone. I really hadn't got a clue. Will be expressing for a while I think so will try heating in a jug. When you move on to formula do you use boiling water or water that has boiled and cooled?
Never bothered. I bf to 6 months then switch daytime to ff as go back to work. If u never warm it they don't expect it! Waste of money. And if you really want to warm it do it for free standing bottle in a jug of hot water.
