  • Big waste. I used one for the first few weeks of my son's life and it 6 minutes to warm 2 oz. while he screamed.

  • LOL, I guess I'll be the only positive answer! Bottle warmers are usually for a comfort thing, but I had to switch from BF to FF, so I used a bottle warmer to ease the transition. I love it and still use it. My son son will take a bottle at room temp, but I can tell he prefers the warm. Oh, and it only takes about 2-3 min to heat a 9 oz bottle (though I will say it takes a little longer if you're putting liquid in it that was refrigerated, obviously ). It's The First Years bottle warmer, and the nice thing about it is you can put it in the room with the baby, because it will hold cold liquids. Anyway, its a personal decision as its really not all that necessary, again, just comfort. Oh, if you want to save the money though, what I do when I'm out and at someone else's house is take a glass measuring cup, put a little water in it, microwave to boiling, take it out and place the bottle in it for about 5-10 min until warm. HTH

  • i had the same one was my joie and loved it, my first would not take bottle at rm temp for anything, this was a lifesaver for us, my second eh she doesnt care as long as we feed her she will take it just about anyway sorry off topic, i did like the bottlewarmer. it is a personal preference though.
