Hi ladies. I wanted to post here and see if I can get some advice. DH and I are pregnant with our first baby. I am going to try BFing, but I doubt I'll do it that long, so I am getting everything I need for bottle feeding. I am working on a baby registry, and I want to choose a bottle warmer, but I don't know which one to ask for. Any advice? I registered for the playtex drop ins bottles, so it would need to be one that accepts the drop-ins.

Thanks for your help!!!

Amie

honestly i dont think there are any that work with the drop ins. Most of the bottle warmers boil. I bought the gerber one and it said cannot be used with bags or liners only with bottles. So that was a big waste. What I did though was just stick it in a big bowl of hot tap water and it only took a few minutes to be the right temp.

Thank you both for your replies! Now I am thinking maybe I should get a few regular bottles (the kind that doesn't take the drop ins)....

I dont know, the only bottles i tried are the ones with the liners/drop ins. I personally really liked them because if you are bfind they make nipples that are compatible and wont cause nipple confusion which was a big plus to me becasue I was supplementing Cohen. I also liked them because you can push the air out so the baby gets less gas AND they are so much easier to clean. With the playtex ones all you have to sterilise are the lid pieces and the nipple because the formula doesnt actually come into contact with the bottle part. but if you get the bottles you gotta get one of those brush things to really get the bottle clean and its harder to sterilise. I dont know thats JMO.

I had a bottle warmer with dd#1 (5 years old) and I hated it...It took forever and really didn't seem to work. I would end up just taking the bottle and warming it under hot tap water in a bathroom. I found this to be quicker and easier.
With DD#2 I didn't even get a bottle warmer since it didn't work the first time. Instead I would put bottles with the amount of water I would need in the diaper bag and then just add powdered formula to these bottles. She takes her bottles at room temp so this was pretty easy. They even make a dispenser for powdered formula that you can put a premeasured amount of formula in and just dump it into the water.

oh yeah thats true, I didnt try giving Cohen formula at room temp till he was about 5-6 months old but he took it no problem so I ended up filling bottles everynight and just let them sit out on the counter so they would stay at room temp and then they were ready to go. I agree with 1shortmomma though the ppl I know who bought the bottle warmers didnt even seem to use them much. Id save your money. Trust me there are alot of things you will buy that you will hardly use.

I agree w/ TanyaG that the drop-in bottles are SO much easier. I never use a bottle warmer, I don't even have one, my doc says our water is fine to give her so we just use warm tap water. When I nannied I found that bottle warmers were more of a PITA than they were worth. If you are going to feed your baby breastmilk in a bottle, it may come in handy b/c BM cannot be microwaved. But there's always just the bowl of hot water, which is cheaper
