Best Travel Bottle Warmer

Updated on March 27, 2013

Best Travel Bottle Warmers

There are a range of different types travel bottle warmers available to heat bottles when you're on the go, days out or on vacation. I wrote this article having researched the best travel bottle warmer for my own baby. Scroll down for specific reviews of travel bottle warmers. Below are descriptions of the different travel warmers available in 2013.

* There are bottle warmers which heat up by plugging a warmer into a car lighter. This is good if you need to warm bottles on a long trip in the car. The downside is that they can take a while to heat up depending on the model you buy.

* Bottle warmers which you plug in. Many people use these on a daily basis to warm bottles in their homes. However, they are also good to use in hotel rooms and other places which have electricity. Not great for when you're out and about though

* There are bottle warmers in which you carry hot water in a flask. When you are ready to heat your bottle you pour the hot water into another container in which you put the bottle. This is the option that I chose for my baby as it's flexible. You can heat the bottles in hotel rooms, when your outside, in restaurants, in the car etc.

* A warmer which has a heating cell. These are a good option for when your on the go but can be slow to heat up.

When buying your bottle warmer make sure it will fit the shape and size of the bottles you have.

Check out some options of the best travel bottle warmer below.

Travel Bottle & Food Warmer Set

This is the choice of bottle warmer that I went with and it's excellent for my baby's needs for heating bottles when out and about. It's been worth every penny as you can take the warmer wherever you go. You put hot water in the thermal flask. This is covered with a plastic container. When you are ready to heat the bottle, you pour the water from flask into the plastic container and heat the bottle in the container.

The good thing about this bottle warmer is that you don't need any electricity so it can be used pretty much anywhere.

On the Go Bottle Warmer

This on the go bottle warmer uses a heat cell to warm baby's bottles when you're out.

You have to plan ahead when you use this one and boil the heat cell in hot water before you go out.

It does also take a long time to heat the bottle - one reviewer suggests using the heat cell to heat the bottle about 30 minutes before you need it. Another suggests 20 minutes is needed.

Other Ways to Heat Baby's Bottle When You're Out and About

A travel baby bottle warmer is a nice piece of kit to have to warm baby's bottles but what happens when you don't have it with you and you need to heat your baby's bottle.

Cafes / restaurants - All you really need to heat your baby's bottle is a jug of hot water. Many cafes or restaurants will either heat your bottle for you if you buy a cup of coffee or something else. Some restaurants do refuse to do this as they worry they may be sued if they burn your baby but I found that most will. I've checked a couple of popular coffee shops and according to their website Starbucks will do it.

Thermos flask - Another option is to take your own thermos flask to warm the bottle. You will also need a container to pour the hot water in and sit the bottle in it.

Check you baby won't drink milk cold - My oldest baby would drink his milk unheated so he was no problem when out and about. It's worth checking if your little one will drink his milk without heating it, especially if you're desperate.
