Baby Bottle Storage and Warmers

Updated on September 10, 2014

The Proper Storage of Baby Bottles

Let's now take a look at Baby Bottle Warmers and some Baby Bottle Storage and some of the options available to you.

You always want to give your baby the best of everything. If you can only protect them from getting sick, you will do it without batting an eyelash.

There's no argument that breast milk makes the most ideal form of nourishment.

When you aren't home, you want to properly store your milk for the next time your baby gets hungry.

When choosing a baby bottle to store milk in, you have to consider the bottle's capacity. You also have to think about whether you buy permanent bottles or disposable ones.

Baby Bottle Storage

In the end, the choice is entirely yours. You just have to know what to look for when buying a bottle. One important consideration is its anti-gas properties. What this does is prevent your child from sucking in too much air while he drinks his milk. If they become gassy, they will experience discomfort, oftentimes from stomach cramps.

Normally, when breastfeeding your child, you should sit close to what should be an upright position. You only have to slightly lean backwards to give your baby better access. What this does is decrease the chance of them swallowing air while they drink their milk. Additionally, you will most likely be comfortable in this position because you are able to hold your child firmly and see them better.

When you are out, your milk should always be stored in plastic containers. There is less risk spoilage when compared to glass containers. The last thing you want to do is destroy your antibodies and the other essential vitamins and nutrients found in your nourishment.

There are also plastic bags sold in several stores that were especially designed for storing milk. Also make sure that you have the means to properly store and wash the bottles after every use. They should be properly sanitized at all times before giving them to your young one.

If you plan on freezing your milk, make sure that you know the date. Write it down on every container and don't serve it when it has been stored too long because the bacteria can grow and contaminate it.

Feeding your baby with spoilt milk may cause infection and illness. If your freezer has a defrost feature, you will need to monitor this so that you can get rid of the milk once it stays inside the fridge during the cycle. When filling these containers up, don't fill it to the brim.

Liquids tend to expand when frozen. Ideally, these should only be three-quarters full. If you forget and put too much, these containers will burst. Then, make sure you seal them well. Before you put it in the fridge, cool the milk first before storing.

Milk lasts as long as three months in deep freezers. Otherwise, throw them out after two weeks. Before serving it, thaw the milk quickly to avoid bacterial contamination. You can do this by placing the plastic container in warm water. Never ever use the microwave.

This dangerous household equipment will certainly change the composition. You don't want to deprive your baby of your antibodies and vitamins, don't you? Once thawed, shake it well before feeding your baby. The one thing to remember is that you must try to protect your baby from bacteria.

      Congrats on the sales! Goes to show that giving visitors what they're looking for, sometimes without a lot of unnecessary babble -- but just enough pertinent information -- really does work.
