Fill with water
Empty the water from the unit, shake out any water from the sponge, and remove the rubber ring. Pour in cold water (room temperature or colder), then wait for 30 seconds for it to heat up. Next, submerge the bottle as far down as possible inside of a boiling pot of water for 5 minutes. Remove when finished and dry off all excess moisture with a towel before feeding your baby.
Pumping and freezing breast milk is a great way to prepare for motherhood! Here are step-by-step instructions on how to make your own bottles. You will need: 1/2 oz of infant formula or breast milk, 1 washcloth, 2 pint size ziplock bags (1 ziplock bag for each 5 ounces). The first thing you will want to do is wash your hands. Next, seal the bottles in their respective bags with the cap popped off.
Screw on cap
Some bottles have to be warmed before feeding and this is true for most bottles that are wide at the top like glass or plastic. However, a lot of parents have made the mistake of putting glass or clear plastics in the microwave. This can lead to exploding glasses in the microwave which can cause severe burns. That’s why many hospitals now only use electric baby bottle warmers when warming up milk for babies. Even if you have a microwave safe baby’s milk, you still need an alternative so that you don’t risk burning yourself while warming it up with other methods.
A one tip when using a warm baby milk bottle: Use water and only use until completely hot then test on back of your hand before giving to your child.
Place under running hot water
The most common way to heat up a bottle is by placing it under running hot water. In order to do this, boil water in a kettle or saucepan and pour it into a pot or bowl. Then put the lidded container holding the milk and microwave on top of the pot or bowl. Remember to fill a mug with boiling water for your pacifier! Don’t forget about yourself too – grab that tea you’ve been craving for. Stir the milk every so often, give it time to warm up (5-10 minutes) and voila! All done!
Shake to mix formula
The last thing new parents want to worry about is getting their baby formula mixed up. And the first thing they need to do is mix it. The Parents Choice Bottle Warmer takes away the guesswork by mixing in seven shakes. Plus, each one of these bottles has measurements on the side so you can just measure out what you need and throw in a few scoops into the bottle and shake it up for 20 seconds and you’re good to go! No need to time anything when everything’s done for you with precision!
Wait for up to 10 minutes depending on formula used
Start by washing and drying the bottle. Fill a pot with 3-4 inches of water. Add a few drops of dish soap and bring to a rolling boil. Get the clean, dry baby food jar ready with lid on. Then put up to 1/2 teaspoon of tap water in the baby food jar (or if you are using powdered formula, add powder according to package directions). Place container holding baby’s food in pot of boiling water for about 5 minutes (or follow specific instructions on powdered formula packaging).
Add heated water into baby bottles
The first step is to plug in the bottle warmer and let it preheat for one minute. Once the timer goes off, open the lid on the water jug. Fill up both of the side openings with hot water before screwing on the stopper. Next, put your baby’s bottles in their respective slots before placing the top of your pitcher onto them. Turn clockwise until you feel a click and then lock into place by turning again. Place your bottle’s lids back on, flip over, and wait for three minutes!
Shake gently and serve
To shake, follow these steps:
– Fill the top of the bottle warmer with water until it reaches the water fill line.
– Place bottles on to the tray or in a tight fitting row in the warming compartment.
– Add a bottle warmer bag of your choice and place it inside the warming compartment. This keeps steam from forming and helps keep air out so that less moisture will build up in the appliance while warming.
– Slide the tray back into place. The heating element will automatically turn on once you’ve plugged in your bottle warmer, so there’s no need to push any buttons for this step! (Be sure to disconnect it after use, to prevent an electrical fire). Wait about 20 minutes for contents to warm adequately before serving
(Optional) Wash Bottle Warmer when done using
-Wash bottle warmer when done using. Simply remove the basket and rinse in soap and water. This will also help keep it clean. -Don’t ever pour hot liquid or hot water into your warming system. Doing so can cause serious injury to you, your child, or bystanders around you. It is a good idea to use a pot holder to protect your hands from burns when removing bottles from the basket of boiling water
-If you need to warm more than one bottle at a time, make sure they are different brands as heating two of the same type can affect their flavor
-The ice packs should be frozen solid before being used with the bottle warmer.
The best way to thaw out a breast milk or formula feed is by placing the container with your liquid in the refrigerator. As this reduces the risk of bacterial contamination, if frozen it will keep for up to three months. Frozen milk will also work in a bottle warmer without the need for thawing first. This method prevents any damage that may be caused by heat exposure and is an economical alternative to using hot water. If you are looking for alternative solutions, there are also microwavable pouches available. Once they have been prepared, all you need to do is place them in your designated container with one cup of hot water (you can also use boiling water) and let it sit for thirty seconds before feeding your baby.
