Bottle warmers are great for keeping breast or formula milk warm both at home or on the road. The best warmers are usually made of plastic or stainless steel. Portable models have heating packs that warm up when boiled in water.
Types of Bottle Warmers
Kinds of Bottle Warmers include the following:
Car bottle warmers
Car bottle warmers have built-in power plugs that fit right into a vehicle’s cigarette lighter socket. They have heating bands that can accommodate standard, wide, or angled baby bottles. The heating bands of most car bottle warmers have 360-degree retractability.
Countertop bottle warmers
Countertop bottle warmers are ideal for home use. They can chill up to two baby bottles for over eight hours and warm formula milk in seconds. Good countertop warmers automatically shut down when idle for a certain number of hours.
Portable bottle warmers
Portable bottle warmers have heat cell packs that can be reused over and over. Simply immerse the portable warmer in hot water for about ten to fifteen minutes, until the solution is completely liquefied and clear.
Choosing Bottle Warmers (Buying tips)
Night light: Choose a countertop bottle warmer with a built-in night light to help you see the buttons to press when you have to use it in the middle of the night.
Use: Choose a bottle warmer that you can use with any bottle type, whether reusable or disposable. Make sure it is adjustable to accommodate all bottle sizes. To get value for your money, look for a warmer that can heat baby food jars as well.
