7 Best Bottle Warmers Reviews
Baby bottle warmers? Sheesh, who needs those? My mother never had them, her mother never even dreamed of those. Somehow, they survived, and we’re all fine. So why bother getting something so minutely just for warming up breast milk?
Imagine the following scenario. It’s 3am. You are sound asleep. Finally. And then the baby starts screaming. The little one is hungry. Darn it, you get up, and walk like a zombie to grab you baby and cradle him in your hands. Then, you got to the kitchen. You are faced with two options. On the one hand, you can give the baby cold formula, straight from the fridge. It’ll be super quick. But no, you know that the baby will retaliate. Cold formula isn’t right, it’s biologically wrong. It’s not like breast milk. So now you go to option number two. You flip on the kettle, and you wait for the water to boil. You wait, while holding a crying, squealing baby, that does not want to wait. And you can’t do anything about it. Then, you have to swirl the formula in a bowl of hot water, still holding that baby, until its finally ready. But, alas! You were so tired you didn’t realize you overheated the formula. The baby’s little tongue burned, and are now in the midst of a waking nightmare. Remember, waking nightmare.
A baby bottle warmer would’ve solved that problem within minutes, and had you back to sleep without any traumatic experiences. Now the question remains, which one is best for us?
