For the first few months of Kaia’s life I handled her overnight feeding sessions. She is exclusively breastfed so before I had a chance to build up a milk stash I was up every two hours or so feeding her. I loved it, but to be honest I was so exhausted I was driving myself crazy! My husband saw the toll it was taking on me to be up all night AND take care of both kids all day, so he volunteered for overnight duty as soon as I had enough milk saved. (I love that man!)
He had a pretty crazy routine at first. Kaia’s normal waking times were 12, 2, and 4am, and each night he went trough the same time sucking steps: change her diaper, go to the kitchen, turn on the hot water, grab a bag of breastmilk from the fridge, pour it into a bottle and then stick it in the water for 10 minutes. All this while holding a crying hungry baby! By the time all of that was over she was really mad and wide awake! Guess what? There is a better way!
With the Nuby One-Touch Electric Warmer & Sterilizer you can conveniently heat up bottles of breast milk, formula and food jars with just the push of a button. And even better than that, it takes roughly 2 minutes to perfectly warm a bottle compared to ten minutes it would take in a bowl of hot water. My husband’s new routine is to grab a bottle, drop it in the warmer, change Kaia and then feed her. Easy, right? Before you use the warmer, check out the provided bottle/food warming chart for proper water levels. The Nuby One-Touch Warmer and Sterilizer includes a convenient measuring cup that snaps on the back of the basin, a lift out basket for easy access and a dome top.
It doesn’t just warm bottles, it also sterilizes them (by far my favorite feature!) We have a rotation of four bottles since they only get used at night or if someone watches Kaia, so I have to make sure to clean them right after they are used. The dishwasher takes forever, and washing by hand is a pain in the you-know-what, so having something that will sterilize my bottles in just over a minute is pure genius! To sterilize just add 45ml of water to the basin, drop your bottle/pacifiers/whatever into the basket, close the dome top and press the button. When the orange light goes off then you’re done!
