In the past, warming breast milk was among the most challenging activities nursing mothers had to overcome. Even though microwaves were effective and could get the job done in a short time, the tendency of the machine to degrade nutrients and vitamins in milk and baby formula made them an unsuitable solution. Heating milk and baby formula directly on an open fire (stove, gas cooker, etc.) on the other hand is unhygienic. Open fires also concentrate heat on specific spots.
This causes milk to thin and become non-palatable to toddlers. If you are nursing mother and looking for a way to keep your little bundle of joy satisfied when at work, one of the best decisions you can make is to buy a good baby bottled warmer that your nanny can use at home with little effort. Here is a review of the top 10 best models that you should consider:
