Baby Bottle Warmer

A baby bottle warmer is a boon for the mothers. Previously, mothers would get tired heating the bottles in boiling water. Some would even try out foolish ideas, putting the bottles into the microwaves. On the contrary, the bottle warmer is a great item for saving your time and providing the baby with food at the correct time and as soon as possible.

The Effectiveness Of The Baby Bottle Warmer
A bottle warmer is a great way for heating up a bottle in less than a minute. Therefore, when the baby cries, it will not take you much time to provide the baby its food; you can do that instantly. A new mother should learn to adjust herself to save the time when catering to the needs of the baby.

Things To Know...
Before switching over to the baby bottle warmer, the mother should know how to use it. If your baby prefers the milk warm, then better have a bottle warmer to get the milk warm really fast. You will find a lot of bottle warmers in the market. The ways of handling them are also different and require you to know how to use the different bottle warmers. So, go through the directions carefully before you start using a bottle warmer.

The home baby bottle warmer can be plugged into the wall-socket and it effectively warms the bottle to the right temperature. Fill the baby bottle warmer with water (the amount of water should be precisely the amount of water you will be warming). If you want to heat a bottle (with its content) that had been in the refrigerator, then it should be taking some more time to get warmed. By adding more water than is required, you will end up having a bottle that is too hot for feeding the baby.

The travel baby bottle warmer can be plugged into your car's cigarette lighter. This does not require you to use water and functions well when you are traveling. The travel on the go type of baby bottle warmer, however, is not that effective, as it can be used only once when you are out. Hence, this type is less practical.

You Need To Be Aware Of...
Always take care to remove the top of the bottle before warming up the bottle. This will help prevent trapping of gas inside a bottle. (Trapped gas can lead to gas problems and stomach aches).

Test the temperature of the bottle on your wrist or at the bend of your arm, before you feed your baby. If it seems to be too hot, then wait for it to cool down to a preferred temperature, before you feed your baby.

For cleaning, unplug the baby bottle warmer and then with a wet paper towel or washcloth wipe the bottom of the warming pad. Regularly clean the bottle holder; if it is filled with sludge, then it might hinder the proper warming of the bottle.
