Avent Bottle Warmer Lock Rss

Has anyone used the Avent Bottle Warmer? If so, can you tell me whether it is worth purchasing.

How long do they take to warm the avent bottles and a little about how they work.

Thanks in advance.

A friend of mine uses one for her daughter and swears by it. Not sure on how quick it heats but I wouldn't imadgine it would take too long when you have got a hungry baby waiting for her bottle time is of the essence. I will ask her today how long it takes and post it later.

I asked my friend today and she said that it takes about 5 minutes to warm up a bottle. You put water inside it and put in the bottle. I personnally used the microwave and gave the bottle a good shake before giving it and I never had a problem.

I recently purchased the Avent bottle warmer which I put in my baby bag that I go out with. I find it really handy as I am breastfeeding and use bottled expressed breast milk while I am out and as we all know you can't heat ebm in the microwave. The bottle warmer is great because it is hard to get water hot enough out of the tap to heat a bottle in a hurry when you have a screaming baby! Takes about 5-6 minutes
Thanks for your replies ladies,

I have a warmer now and a big Avent bottle takes 4 minutes to heat up. I always have a bottle of water in the warmer on stand-by. I recommend one to all mothers. I would never go back to the heat the bottle in a cup of hot water again.

I was just wondering something about the avent bottle warmers. Do they require the use of electricity or not?

Yes they require electricity.

we actually gave away our bottle warmer, as we had a stainless steel tall kettle, that we used to warm up our baby's formula in, and we found this easier,
but now, like Paycyn, I just use a microwave,

Just a tip to anyone using the microwave to heat up formula. Always warm the water first then add the formula, because I have been told your shouldn't microwave breast milk or formula.

i heat breast milk, that i express for my baby in the microwave,why isnt it good ? i mean i have heard that you shouldnt but its not bad bad for your baby, so whats the big no no with the microwave heating> ???
at first the big deal was that they thought that the waves affected the milk and because a microwave doen't heat evenly it was bad to heat the bottle in there. when i was in the hospital having my son, 4mnths ago they actually said that as long as you give the bottle a good shake to make sure there are no hot spots it is perfectly fine to heat bottles in the microwave.


Yeah they claim the microwave kills the nutrients. I have done it a couple of times but then bought the bottle warmer and found that the best way to do it.

Problem is these days that you hear so much garbage that is actually spread like a rumor and people find it safer to believe in it. The way bottles etc are sterilised these days is nothing like the past. They never used to sterilised before but we seem to believe manufacturers and go out and buy products (yes, I used my steriliser for 12 months) not sure if I will use it longer then 3 months with this baby on the way.

We also get told we should breast feed for 12 months, about 8 years ago they said it was important to only do it for the first 3 months. Perhaps in another 8 years they will change it again to 24 months.

If you feel comfortable about microwaving breast milk then go for it. As long as you are happy smile
