Do you need a baby bottle warmer? If you are making up formula to feed your baby you shouldn’t need a bottle warmer, as the government advice is to make fresh formula for every feed. Because formula isn’t sterile, it’s recommended that you make it as your baby needs it, using water at 70ºC, and to use it within two hours.
However, if you are using ready-to-use formula cartons or expressed milk – which, according to the NHS, can be stored in the fridge for up to five days at 4°C or lower – you might want to warm the milk up before feeding your baby.
Whether or not you need a bottle warmer depends on whether your baby wants heated milk, and how happy you are with just using a jug of hot water to raise the milk’s temperature.
