Milk can’t be microwaved for babies. Enter bottle warmers.Best Bottle Warmers of 2020
When a baby nurses, breast milk is body temperature. So naturally, babies often prefer bottles of warm milk over cold. But don’t go running for your microwave yet! Using it to heat breast milk or formula is a no-no. Microwaves can create hot spots in liquid and scald your baby’s mouth.
Enter bottle warmers. They quickly and uniformly heat a chilled bottle, freezer bag of milk or refrigerated baby food so it’s safe to use right away.
Note: There’s no danger in feeding your little one cold milk or formula if they’ll take it.
Do you need a bottle warmer?
You can certainly let frozen breastmilk thaw overnight in the fridge and serve it cold if your baby isn’t picky about it. You can also warm milk and food by placing it in a bowl of hot water to slowly heat up. But a bottle warmer can make the heating process faster and many also alert you when the milk or food is ready to go.
