**disclaimer: if you purchase from any of the links below, we might recieve a small commission but I bought this item with my own money and chose to write about it.
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.
