I'm the horrible mom that feeds her kids room temp bottles. I have a gallon of baby water on the counter and I just fill a bottle and dump in the appropriate amount of formula and shake it up and feed the baby.

Re: Heating up bottles

We used to use room temp water but we had to switch to a formula for spit up and it doesnt dissolve well in room temp water so I had to start heating our water up. When I heat it up it only gets to about room temp before he starts screaming for it.

Re: Heating up bottles

A bottle warmer is a wonderful thing. Any of the brands should work. I forget which one we had.

At some point, but older, maybe 8-9 months or later, my kid would just take them straight out of the fridge. I really appreciated that but before that we did a bottle warmer.

Re: Heating up bottles

I'm waiting for the day he will take it at least a little cold. But at this point he just spits it out if its too cold.

Were using Enfamil AR and we have a brita pitcher we fill with water, and make bottles as we go.
But at nights, or if he is abnormally upset I heat them up, via crockpot. I just always keep it full of water(its small) and stick a bottle in the water for a minute or so.

Great idea. So do you leave the crockpot on all night so the water is already warm?

Re: Heating up bottles

We used a crock pot at the daycare I used to work at as well, but I only have a huge one. My one of the individual ones would be as cheap as a bottle warmer. I will have to look when I go to the store tomorrow. Sure that wouldn't take as long as a cup with water. The problem with the cup is the water gets cold fast because the bottle cools it down so then you have to refill it once or twice to get it warm. I guess the crock pot would keep the water warm at all times and it wouldn't cool off.

I thought the same thing that it probably would cost the same to just get a bottle warmer but I like the idea that I can use a small crock pot for other things like warm dips or beans.
