What Are The Best Bottle Warmers For Breast Milk? – Find out what features you MUST have!

This Momma is in a hurry, just tell me which bottle warmer is the best already!

The Bable Bottle Warmer is the best all-around for breast milk from our list. It works well for steam-sterilizing, too.  It’s made of stainless steel, fits two bottles of nearly any brand, and comes with a remote. The LCD display allows you to monitor the temperature as the milk approaches its ideal warmth.



Breastfeeding is both rewarding and exhausting. When you can’t be available 24 hours a day to feed your little one, bottle warmers can be a lifesaver. While cool milk may not be harmful, warming the milk to body temperature can make taking a bottle more comforting. Not all bottle warmers are created equally, though. We took a look at four warmers to see what parents liked and disliked about each one to take some of the guesswork out of purchasing for our readers.

Bable Bottle Warmer review

This is a two-bottle warmer that defrosts and warms breastmilk and formula bottles. It can also heat up solid foods and sterilize feeding equipment.

It has two temperature settings. The lower temperature is recommended for heating up breast milk, and it can also keep a bottle warm for up to two hours. It automatically switches over to the warming feature after reaching the desired temperature.

It’s made of stainless steel, fits two bottles of nearly any brand, and comes with a remote.

The LCD display allows you to monitor the temperature as the milk approaches its ideal warmth, which a lot of parents like.

Parents who don’t have a dishwasher or sterilizer really like and use the sterilizing feature a lot, although it can only sterilize one disassembled bottle at a time.

The drawbacks to the design are its bulk, inadequate fill lines, and smaller bottles tend to “float”. Some say the remote is not necessary, although it seems to be useful with twins or multiples.

The best part about this device is the even heating of each bottle, and the fact that it does not overheat milk, making it dangerously hot or stripping it of nutrients.

Pros

  • Safe for breastmilk
  • Doesn’t overheat milk
  • Easy to use and keep track of milk temp
  • Can heat two bottles at a time
  • Keeps bottles warm for a while

Cons

  • Some say it’s a bit bulky - weighs 2.5 pounds
  • Measuring water refills can be tedious
  • Sterilization leaves the bottles wet

Super Mom Picks Verdict:

This is a great product with several different uses. It's ideal for parents of multiples, and parents across the board like that it doesn’t overheat bottles. It’s also great for keeping bottles warm and sterilizing feeding equipment. 

If your biggest concern is space, it may not be the best fit for you. 

This is our all-around favorite of the four warmers we reviewed.

Baby Brezza Safe & Smart, Electric Baby Bottle Warmer and Baby Food Warmer review

This warmer has two temperatures, the lowest being safe for breastmilk. It works well for many people, but some say milk is inconsistently heated and comes out either too hot or too cold.

Larger bottles for older babies often have to be reheated several times to achieve the proper temperature.

Several said that the “quick warm” function caused bottle contents to boil, and some report being burned by the lid, so be sure to use with caution.

It fits nearly all sizes and shapes of bottles and jar foods. It’s safe for glass and plastic.

You can program a starting temperature for your breast milk and it will not only adjust the time accordingly but notify you through the app when the bottle is ready. You do have to pair your device to your phone with each use as it does not store that information.

The buttons are difficult to operate, and some people are unable to figure out the programming, so keep that in mind if grandparents or other caregivers need to be able to operate it without you.

There is a loud beep from the device to alert you when the formula is ready, as well, which users either really loved or really hated.

Pros

  • Bluetooth alert when the bottle is ready
  • Adjustable time and temperature
  • Can hold almost any bottle, bag, or jar

Cons

  • Inconsistent temperature
  • Difficult for some to operate

Super Mom Picks Verdict:

This warmer is ok, especially if you find it on sale. Just remember to be really careful to check the temperature of the milk before feeding your baby. It’s best for people who like using technology.

MATCC Baby Bottle Warmer review

This is the newest device on our list, so there aren’t as many reviews, but we wanted to include it because it has several functions and is a lower-priced alternative.

It fits most bottle sizes and shapes, and heat bottles made of any material. It defrosts and warms milk, heats baby food, sterilizes, and keeps milk warm after heating.

We liked that there is an automatic shut off safety feature when it runs out of water so the device won’t overheat, although you should be aware that the next time you start it after the function is triggered, it may take a little longer to warm up.

The touch screen is an LED digitally controlled panel.

Although it heats two bottles at a time, we love that it’s a smaller machine, so it’s perfect for families with limited counter space.

Pros

  • Less expensive
  • Great for smaller areas
  • Has several useful features

Cons

  • New and has few reviews
  • After auto-shutoff, heat up takes longer

Kiinde Kozii Voyager review

This is our only non-electric selection. It’s a specialized thermos with two external cups of different sizes. You pour the hot water from the specially made thermos into one of the two cups, which work with almost any size bottle.

It won’t ever overheat your baby’s bottle, and it’s safe for breastmilk.

The manufacturer says it keeps water hot all day long, however, many users say that although it keeps boiling water warm for 2 to 4, the water cools much more rapidly.

This warmer is very travel-friendly, though. It can fit just about anywhere. Most parents report it’s never leaked, but there have been a couple of reports of leaky containers, so test it out before carrying it with very hot water or putting it in a diaper bag.

This is most useful when you don’t have access to an outlet, can’t easily or safely breastfeed, but will still have access to hot water every few hours.

It could be replaced by a thermos and a couple of other containers, however, the price is really reasonable in comparison to traditional thermoses. Having cups that already fit snuggly together creates a handy system and is a fairly inexpensive and space-saving solution.

Pros

  • Great for travel
  • Usually does not leak
  • Doesn’t require electricity
  • Can be used for multiple bottle sizes

Cons

  • Water only hot for 2-4 hours
  • Isn’t ideal for frozen breastmilk
  • Only useful to carry water, can’t heat

6 Tips for Shopping for a Bottle Warmer for Breastmilk

While researching this article, we came up with a few tips that make shopping for bottle warmers for breastmilk more manageable. If none of the suggestions above are a good fit, here are a few things we’d suggest looking for as you do further research. 

  1. Look specifically for information about how the device works for breast milk. 

  2. But if you think you may want to switch to formula at some point, keep that in mind as you shop, too. 

  3. Remember your Celsius to Fahrenheit conversions, because for some reason, even warmers made in the U.S. seem to use Celsius measurements.

  4. Before you shop, think about the appliances you have, and how many you plan to have for baby, then measure your cabinet space. 

  5. Overheating bottles is one of our number one concerns. Be sure that no matter how many good reviews your warmer has, how often you use it, or how dependable it is, you always check the temperature of milk before feeding your baby. Steer clear of warmers that don’t regulate temperature well if you can when shopping. 

  6. Some very popular companies with extremely dependable records for making great baby products have terrible reviews for their bottle warmers, so don’t just shop by name brand alone.
