Thread: Curious about DCP...

    Default Curious about DCP...

    I am heading back to work in a few weeks and I am wanting to make feeding my daughter EBM in bottles. Any suggestions on how to tell the DCP to warm the bottles up quickly and easily? Thanks!

    Most of the places I looked at had crock pots or something similar to warm bottles. I have my mom do it with warm tap water in a mug, and have it sit for about 2 minutes - that gets it to abut room temp.

    My DCP had a small crock pot with warm water that sat on the counter.

    agree, warm water does the trick....just don't let them microwave it!

    Mine also uses a bottle warmer. I'm lucky though and DS drinks it cold, so I don't have to worry about them heating it up.

    I had my DCP warm it with warm water from the sink in a pitcher.
