This is one of the best things we have bought since having children, it makes the night time feeding so much easier.
When we first had Tommy we followed the instructions to the letter, this meant getting up to boil the kettle whenever he needed feeding, waiting for the water to cool enough make a bottle up, as new parents we didn’t know any better and it was meaning a totally broken nights sleep for both of us as one was soothing Tommy while the other prepared the feed.
After a bit of research we found other parents that made the bottles up the night before with boiling water the just added the powdered milk when woken, this still involved getting up and boiling the kettle to warm the formula if it had cooled too much, there had to be a solution to this and we found it in the form of the Tommee Tippee Closer to Nature Electric Bottle Warmer.
Electric Bottle and Food Warmer makes it quick and easy to heat bottles and baby food safely. The warmer heats everything from breast milk to baby food while helping to preserve the nutrients that are vital to your baby's healthy development. Just place your bottle or food jar in the warmer, then use the control dial to adjust the temperature in accordance with the instructions (see below). Warming times will depend on the capacity and the starting temperature of the feed. The warming time of 4 minutes is based on heating a 150ml serving of milk from an ambient room temperature (20°C).
We’ve been using this product for quite a number of months and have operated it in various states of consciousness and have found it great to use, there are a couple of down sides to this product, first of all the power lead is a little too short to put any higher than a low bed side table, the other issue is with the control dial, it isn’t really needed, I have only ever used it on setting number 3, this could be replaced with to a simple on/off switch, also the warming of jars is much quicker and more efficient to do in the microwave, if a jar has been in the fridge it can take up to 25 mins to heat up. Other than those issues this is a great product that really makes a difference to night feeds.
Thank you for taking the time to read this review.
