I remember one of the first times we took Bryson out. I was still breastfeeding, but also supplementing with formula (mistake!). We were at a birthday party at a little community center and realized that we didn’t have a way to warm his bottle. Justin had to find a pot, put some water on to boil, and then sit Bryson’s bottle in the hot water to warm it. When you have a hungry baby, this method is definitely not preferred.
Thankfully, I am still exclusively breastfeeding Bella and I plan to for at least a year. Still, there will come a time that she will receive a bottle and we won’t have to go boiling water in a community center to do it either. Why? We have an On The Fly Bottle Warmer. I hadn’t heard of this until we were given the chance to try it out. I so wish I had it when Bryson was a baby!
This neat little invention is simple to use and only requires two steps:
How To Use On The Fly™ Bottle in 2 Easy Steps!
- Place prepared bottle in On The Fly™ BottleSOC & pull up outer layer of the BottleSOC
- Wrap air activated warmer around inner layer of BottleSOC, pull down outer layer of BottleSOC
A perfect bottle will be ready for your baby in 30 minutes or less. Never overheats.
This is a great product to keep tucked in your diaper bag, just in case. Even if you don’t think you’ll need it, it’s small and won’t take up much room. I can definitely see it coming in handy for long trips! If you’ve ever used “hot hands”- that’s what the warmer reminds me of to give you a better idea.
Something to keep in mind is that it can take up to 30 minutes to warm a bottle. So, if your child is hungry NOW, this won’t work for you, so plan ahead. It cannot be used with bottles that require liners. The packaging also states that you should consult a pediatrician before using to warm breast milk. While this may not be for everyone, I think it would work wonderfully for most formula feeding moms.
