    Default How do you keep milk warm when btfing?

    Hello,

    I usually work everyday for 3 hours and leave milk for my lo. If he doesn't down everything within a couple of minutes, when its warm, he wont finish eating. He doesn't like cold milk. Are there any bottle insulators or anything like that that will keep milk warm longer so that there isn't a tiny time frame and my milk isn't wasted?

    He doesn't like cold as in room temp or cold as in refrigerated? If he doesn't like even room temp bottles I think I have seen some insulators at BRU but I don't know how well they work, but anything is worth a shot so you don't wast milk

    what about a crock pot on low?
    youd have to test it out and see how warm the water gets.
    put the bottle down in the crock pot?

    My dd often is a snacker when it comes to bottles.... if she doesn't finish it I microwave a mug of hot water (just water not the MILK) and then stick the bottle in the water and it keeps it warm.. of course once that gets cold you have to micr the water again.. but often she will finish it within 30 min or so. I have also used the crockpot idea when I had to be gone all day and dh was with her and she got several bottles that way.

    That's a good idea. I'm going to try that.

    Thank you so much bc I really think that he would finish his milk if it didn't get cold.
