The First Years Simple Serve Bottle Warmer Review

Convenience

So I had my daughter in 2011, and I swear like I said in my post about How I Sterilize My Baby Bottles that I did everything the extremely hard way. Warming bottles was another thing. And sure I know I’m super behind with the times but it has me shook so of course I am going to write about it.

With my daughter I put water in a pot on the stove and warmed it up. I did this for months. I used to sleep on the couch at her 4am-7am feeding to watch TV. Well one morning I made her a bottle and fell asleep feeding her, and woke up the smoke detecor going off. I literally forgot to turn off the burner and almost burned my house down. I started microwaving the after that.

After she was 9 months I stopped warming her bottles up all together. So you know this time with my son, I’m a seasoned mom and I’m going to do my own research this time instead of just always listening to my grandma and mom (lol). So in the beginning I didn’t warm my sons formula at all because online said it didn’t make a difference. I swear the first 2-3 weeks of his life he did nothing but cry. I was so overwelmed that I, myself, the mom was crying. I thought he was broken.

I bought the bottle warmer when he was 3 days old (December 8th 2018) mostly because my mom was like you need to warm up his bottle and someone got me an amazon gift card. I initially got this particlar one because it was $9, although last I looked it was $15 which I don’t think is bad. I also didn’t start really using it the way I do now until probably 4 weeks ago (but who really knows…….my days are so damn off because I’m hardly sleeping. HAH.

So did I make the right decision? What did I get anyways? Keep reading and you’ll find out.

IMG_20190124_182315_630.jpgSo having my son last month, was not my first rodeo (picture added of him to share this cuteness with the world). I have a 7 year old (birthday in October of 2011) and I was extremely young, and honestly naive. I didn’t have a clue what I was doing, so I usually did things the way my grandma or my mom did things, which I was born in 1992 so that was 19 years ago at that point.. A lot has changed in 19 years. When it came to sterilizing bottles, I did everythig the old school way. Wash the bottles in the dishwasher, and than a fill up a pot of boiling water, and boil the bottles and teats for 5 minutes.

That was anything BUT convenient.

Dr Browns Formula Mixing Pitcher

What is the Dr Browns Formula Mixing Pitcher? I was on Amazon one day, looking at stuff to buy with my gift card I got for my baby shower. SO many choices. I actually got it for $9 which I guess is pretty cheap! So I initially got it because I wanted to make night time easier. Sometimes it’s a pain in the ass to measure out water and formula and than put it in the bottle warmer at 3am – with a baby crying extremely loud. So I thought, hey? I could premake his bottles for the night and avoid that whole thing.
