How to Choose the Best Bottle Warmers?
Let us see the important things that should be considered while purchasing a bottle warmer:
There are three types of Bottle Warmers
a) Water Bath
Here, the water around the bottle heats up electrically and warms the milk by circulating around the bottle. This method is highly preferable because it warms the milk evenly without leaving any hot spots. Additionally this also helps in retaining the proteins, nutrients etc that are present in the breast milk.
b) Steam Heat technology
In this type of warmers, the water comes in contact with the heating element of the warmer and produces steam which in turn warms up the milk present in the bottle. This method heats up fast when compared with water baths but the drawback is it heats the bottle to high level so; you should wait till the bottle comes to normal level.
c) Water and Steam Bottle Warmers
These types of bottle warmers use combination of steam heat and the heat of the boiling water to warm up the milk. These types of warmers are very quick and mostly preferred by modern moms.
The Bottle warmer you purchase should be capable of fitting all the types of baby bottles. So, try to purchase the one which is versatile.
3. Auto shut off
Try to purchase the Bottle Warmer which shuts off automatically once it reaches the preferred temperature. These type of bottles helps to warm the milk to the desired level.
There are certain Bottle Warmers which makes sound once the milk is warmed. Try to purchase the one that has this kind of feature so that you can carry out other works till it is heated.
5. Warming Efficiency
It should not consume much time to warm up the milk and the warming should be even. So, try to purchase the Bottle warmer which heats the milk efficiently.
6. Easy to Use
Whenever we buy any kind of equipment it should be easy to utilize. So, choose the one that can be used easily by anyone.
7. Easy to Clean
Sometimes, there may be some dust particles inside the reservoir so, look for the one that can be cleaned easily.
Bottle warmers must be carried wherever you go, so buy the one which is lightweight and easy to carry.
Risk Involved in Other Methods of Warming
There are 2 more methods of warming the milk but they are not as safe as bottle warmers.
- Whenever it comes to heating, the first thing that comes to our mind is microwave method. Though microwave is one of the easiest and fastest techniques to heat up the things but warming milk in microwave can lead to injuries. Microwave does not heat up evenly and at upper side the hotness is more which can burn baby’s lips and tongue. So, considering baby’s safety this method is ruled out.
- There is a traditional method where a baby bottle is kept inside bowl of hot water to warm up the milk. This method is tedious because it takes too long time. Hence, this method is also ruled out.
So, the safest and the fastest method to warm the baby bottles is by using Bottle Warmers.
Note: If you are giving Formula to your babies, then it should be consumed immediately within an hour. Do not store it or heat it after 1 hour.
Few important Points……
