The Baby Brezza Safe + Smart Bottle Warmer is the perfect gift for a new mom. I distinctly remember those insane early morning feedings and walking to the kitchen like a zombie to prepare Marley’s bottles. It would have been great to have a device that would warm his bottles up without a long wait for the warming and an even longer wait for the cooling process.
In a perfect world, I could prepare his bottles ahead of time and pop them in the fridge. When he woke up for a middle-of-the-night feeding, I could remove the bottle from the fridge and place it inside the Baby Brezza Bottle Warmer. That would’ve knocked off at least 10 minutes (or more) from the entire process of preparation to feeding.
He’s older now and drinking a lot less milk but the bottle warmer has still come in handy, especially for his last feeding of the day. We’re working on establishing a solid nighttime routine for him and we’ve found that after having his bath and bedtime story, a warm bottle of formula helps him drift off to sleep on his own.
Babies don’t come with instruction manuals (I wish!) and one of the reasons why I hardly gave Marley warm bottles was because I could never get the temperature right. Believe it or not, a bottle could feel perfect to you after doing the “wrist test,” but could still be too hot for your baby. It was just too much of a headache with boiling the water and then potentially not getting the right temperature while your hungry baby is screaming inconsolably.
The Baby Brezza Smart + Safe Bottle Warmer comes with a how-to guide but who keeps up with those? The creators are so smart and thoughtful that they included the settings and a warming guide on the back of the device! Talk about convenient. The diagram shows the appropriate settings for plastics and glass and it also breaks the settings down depending on the starting temperature of your bottle. You seriously cannot go wrong with this.
The Bluetooth compatibility really changes the game! I love that if he’s a little fussy while we’re waiting for his bottle to finish warming, while I’m walking him as a calming mechanism, I can receive an alert on my phone when his bottle is ready. It’ll even start the warmer for you as long as the water and bottle is already in place. Imagine setting it up and having to run to the bathroom or answer the doorbell. By tapping the start button on your phone, the Baby Brezza Bottle Warmer can finish the job for you.
A warm bottle makes for a very happy and content baby. We all know that a happy baby means a great day or night! Marley is always so eager to grab his bottle right as I wipe the excess water from it and I love the fact that although it has been warmed, it isn’t too hot for him to hold it himself. He’s in that phase of wanting to do everything that he can on his own – including holding his own bottle. (Where did my baby go?! *tear*)
