Thread: Using a Bottle Warmer for Breastmilk

    Default Using a Bottle Warmer for Breastmilk

    I just bought a bottle warmer to warm up the bottles with my breastmilk, which is usually just once per night. The water is pretty much boiling in the warmer and I am concerned that it is killing the nutrients like it would be in the microwave or a boiling pan on the stove. Does anyone have any insight on this?

    When I warm BM i just put it in a cup of warm water. I would just do this but it may not be fast enough for you. Are you giving bottles at night?

    I actually use a bottle warmer to scald my milk but I have to add more water than they say to to get the temp high enough (145 F). When I was adding the correct amount of water the milk only got to about 125 F. This is not the same as the microwave or stove but I am not sure what the ideal heating temp is... thats why I just use warm water.
