Bottle warmer for frozen BM?

We're having some problems with my DH giving our son a bottle. I don't think he likes the nips, but DH has also said he has trouble getting the bottle to a good temp. So, I thought about trying a warmer. Has anyone used a bottle warmer for frozen BM?

I did that too. Just have to remember to do it ahead of time. The other thing that helped my first when she had bottles was to warm just the nipple under hot water and use latex instead of silicone. Makes it more "skin" like.

That's what we used. I wouldn't have *bought* one though, but my mom bought us one. IMO, hot water from the sink works just as well.

What you ladies said is what we have been doing. Maybe he just won't take them from my DH. We'll keep trying. Thanks!

You can totally use a bottle warmer. I have used a bottle warmer, which I had bought for my sitter. She loved using it. But at home, we always used the hot water in a mug in the sink way.

The best way to check if it is the nipples is give fresh expressed breastmilk in the bottle
I tried avent bottles because everyone raved about them. Both my DS hated them. They loved the Nuk nipples. I have also heard good things about the Platex nursers and Adri bottles.

We used playtex nursers here! Had to have latex nipples that were warmed though. And she prefered a top closest shaped to her paci.

Re: Bottle warmer for frozen BM?

At the daycare I worked at they use a crockpot filled with water and plugged in and just stick the bottles in there. It stays warm all day I think so I dont know how long it would take to warm just one bottle but if you will be gone a long time or can plug it in ahead of time and get warm water in there that might work?
