If I am entirely honest I never bothered with this for Gigi, I was a cooled boiled water and powder dispenser mixing kinda gal…..however our maternity nurse for Blake told me this was a big no-no….! Whoops!
Apparently the formula powder needs to hit the water at a min. 70 Degrees Celsius…to kill any nasties. So we used the Tommee Tippee Perfect Prep machine to make up bottles for the day and store them in the fridge. However when it came to going out, or the dreaded night feeds I began to look for a way to warm the milk quickly.
Most places you go will give you boiling water etc to heat the bottle, however sometime its just not practical and during the night it just takes way too long (as do electric bottle warmers)! My Google search led me to Yoomi. These special warming units in the teat of the cute bottles heat the milk as it flows through and gets to temperature within 60 seconds!
The bottles themselves are very stylish but I would say they are not as good as the wonderful Dr Brown’s, but I imagine for breastfed babies they would be great due to the shape and softness of the teat. For me though, its all about the amazing technology to warm the milk so quickly with just the click of a button.
The sterilising and charging is a bit annoying (I chose to wash and then boil for 30mins which sterilises and charges at the same time), but to give you a warm bottle so quickly in the middle of the night, it helped hugely with Blake’s sleep training and I can’t recommend it enough!
