I called Playtex today to ask the manufacturer about using a bottle warmer with their VentAire system. The VentAire bottles have a removable piece of plastic (sort of a "valve") at the bottom of the bottles with the consistency of a bottle nipple. I was concerned about how it may do in a bottle warmer, were I to switch from the DropIn system.

They said they have been moderately tested with bottle warmers but not extensively and that I should check the valve piece constantly to make sure it is not warping from the warmer. Anyone use VentAirs and bottle warmers?

Also, they confirmed that the DropIns are not fit for bottle warming as the liners can melt.

I only ever used spare solid bottles with warmers. Things that didn't have any sort of valve, liner, or odd shape to them. Then I'd pour it into one of the better bottles after it was ready to avoid the gas that came from the normal bottles.

I have never heard of anyone having problems with Vent-Air bottles in a warmer, and I have never used them personally either. I would try it and just be really conscious to check the valve constantly.

That is an excellent idea - every time I'd put a drop-in in the bottle warmer, it warped the bottle. I never melted a bag... but ruined plenty of bottles.

I always put my drop-in bottles in a cup of hot water to warm it.

Yeah- so do I. I think I will just stick with it that way. The amount of time to warm the bottle with water is probably the same as with the warmer.

Actually, depending on the temperature of the water it can be faster. I'm not sure about the specific warmer you were thinking of, but the one I used to use took 45 minutes to warm a bottle.

45 minutes!?!?! That's not even worth it!

I don't use drop-ins anymore, I use Dr. Browns.... and I put them in the warmer all the time, and it takes about 3-4 minutes.

I use a first years warmer and it takes several minutes thats it lol
anyway i used the vent air bottles and they do NOT do well in the warmer.. only because the bottom part is so thick that it doesnt warm.. so i would have to stick it in the warmer several times...so i would always use other bottles and pour it in. now i rarely use those bottles because i really like the Dr. Brown and Avent ones..
