Ensuring your baby takes milk, formula or food at the right temperature is important. Metro Baby showcases the best bottle warmers for at-home and portable use to guarantee your baby is healthy, happy and totally satisfied.
Heating a baby bottle the right way with our bottle warmers
Using a bottle warmer comes down to personal preference. Some parents (and babies) are satisfied with breastmilk or baby food that is slowly heated by placing the milk or food container in a bowl of hot water to slowly heat up.
However, some babies are more picky, and not all parents have the patience to wait around during the slow-thaw process. A bottle warmer from Metro Baby is the answer, speeding up the heating process safely to deliver perfectly warmed and temperature-controlled food to your baby.
Our bottle warmers meet stringent Australian health and safety guidelines to ensure a healthy heated drink or meal every time.
Features and designs to look out for
If you are on the lookout for the right portable bottle warmer for expressed milk or baby foods, we have some great products worth serious consideration.

Choosing the best baby bottle warmer for breast milk
Breastfed babies are used to drinking their milk warm or at body temperature. If your little one is particular about temperature, a bottle warmer is a must-have. A reliable bottle warmer is the quick and safe way to guarantee uniform heating of a chilled bottle, freezer bag, or even refrigerated baby food so it can be enjoyed right away. Bottle feeding at the perfect temperature has never been easier with Metro Baby.
Warming baby food in a bottle warmer
Some babies are relatively easy-going when it comes to eating cooler food. Other little ones protest when their food is delivered at the wrong temperature. Breast milk is naturally warm, leading some babies to develop a preference for a warmer food. If you are in the process of introducing your little one to foods at different temperatures, it may be worth opting for warm foods in general, with the addition of one colder item to gently introduce different taste sensations.
Expose your baby to the variation gradually. It can take more than a dozen attempts over several weeks for your baby to adjust to different food temperatures. In a short while, your child should start enjoying the temperature variety of their favourite foods.
How long you can leave a bottle in a warmer
While many babies prefer their milk at close to room temperature, it's usually fine to serve it cold if they prefer. With Metro Baby on your side, it's as easy as using a travel bottle warmer with thermostat control.
Be careful not to leave the bottle sitting idle in the bottle warmer for more than 10 minutes, particularly if you are using prepared formula instead of milk. When left too long in a warmer, harmful bacteria can grow. Place a few drops on your inner-wrist if you need to test the temperature. It should feel just a little warm and will be safe for baby to drink.
What to expect from your bottle warmer
A bottle warmer isn't an essential baby item, although it can make life much easier for busy new parents. While some parents choose a minimalist approach, others like to plan ahead in anticipation of their needs. A bottle warmer is definitely a nice-to-have baby accessory.
The best bottle warmers available from Metro Baby act as a sterilizer and milk bottle warmer all-in-one. Warm milk is a baby milk favourite, and a bottle warmer can save you loads of time. If your little one is breastfeeding and you want to store expressed breast pump milk for later use, a bottle warmer from Metro Baby is the convenient solution.
Tips for warming your bottle
The goal with an electric bottle warmer is to warm the milk or food to a temperature that is safe for your baby to enjoy. Exposing milk to higher temperatures will destroy beneficial enzymes and immunizing properties. Here are a few tips.
• Gently raise the temperature to match typical body temperature.
• Don't warm bottles in the microwave. Heating is uneven and can burn a baby's mouth.
• Use glass bottles or bottles manufactured without bisphenol A (BPA).
• Don't keep the contents of the bottle warm for more than 10 minutes before use.
• Only use products that are certified as safe by Australian health authorities.
• Test the milk temperature before use with a couple of drops on your inner-wrist.
• If concerned about tap water quality, use a bottle warmer with inbuilt steriliser.
