The benefits of a baby bottle warmer are known to nursing mothers everywhere. Not only are they more hygenic than warming the milk in an open container over an open fire, but also easier to clean and manipulate. Also, open fires concentrate heat on specific spots, causing the milk to become thin and hard to digest.
Some mothers prefer to use the microwave to heat up breast milk for their babies, yet microwaves have been known to degrade nutrients and vitamins within the milk, severely reducing its properties. It is for these reasons why more and more people lean towards baby bottle warmers when it comes to warming up drinks for their toddlers. If you’re thinking about getting one yourself, here are the ten best baby bottle warmers to choose from.
