If you make up the bottle with freshly boiled water, and then top up with cooled boiled water from the fridge, this both kills off the bacteria in the formula powder (as is the current recommendations) and gets it to the right temp really quickly. You just need to experiment with how much boiling water and fridge cooled water makes the right temperature as it depends a little on your kettle and fridge, but then its as fast as boiling the kettle.

Dont bother with another bottle warmer! I just use a jug and put boiling water in - Make sure the water goes as far as the top of the milk line.

Doesnt take too long at all.
