Buying Your Baby Bottle Warmer

Investing in a good quality baby bottle warmer is definitely something the new or expectant parent ought to consider.

Benefits of Baby Bottle Warmers

Warm milk can satisfy a baby's hunger, it can soothe their inconsolable cries; it's basically a pacifier with liquid. Babies prefer warm milk because it's what closely resembles their mother's milk.

Breast milk comes out at just the right temperature and is warm to the touch. Compared to cold or room temperature milk, warm milk gives babies the comforting and secure feeling that they need in those times.

Many women who aren't able to breastfeed and choose to formula feed their babies usually warm the formula before feeding it to the baby. There are three main ways people go about warming a baby's milk:

1) By boiling it in a pot of water; which has the tendency to become too hot at times. You then would have to resort to methods that will quickly cool the milk, because baby is crying and wants that bottle now.

2) By microwaving the bottle. Of all the frowned upon ways to heat up baby's milk, this is the biggest one of them all. Microwaving milk has a high possibility of hot spots. Hot spots are portions of the milk that are searing hot, while the rest is either warm or cold. Microwaving doesn't evenly heat milk, which can be hazardous for the baby.

3) By using a bottle warmer. Bottle warmers take the guesswork in heating up baby's milk. You basically put the bottle into a container that automatically warms the milk to a perfect temperature.

The most popular option out of the three would be using a bottle warmer. It's the simplest, safest and surest way to warm a baby's bottle without overheating.

      I use the microwave at home, but it's nice to have one of these in the car if you have an adapter. It's not always easy to find somewhere to warm a baby's bottle! :)

      I remember well the time as we needed the bottle warmer. This time my daughter ate properly rather than saying "I don't like that food". ;)
