drop in liners? whack a mole crazy Due January 23 (boy); Nebraska 2651 posts

I have the drop in liners for the platex nursers.
How did you warm up your bottles safely? Did you run it under water upside down so the water surrounds the liner? Or did you run it under water on the outside of the bottle?
Also, i have 10 oz bottles, can i only fill it up 4 oz at first and be okay? or do i actually need to buy the smaller bottles with smaller liners for it to work properly?



uhg, this is my first child so i'm totally a newb at this.

you can put hot water in a bowl and put the bottle in the bowl, so the waer surrounds it.



are you talking formula or breast milk? do the above for BM. if its formula, just use warm water(warm to the touch)

I heated up water in the microwave and sat the bottle in it :) you can use the big ones the whole time if you want too.

when i babysat my cousins son she had the smaller ones but all i had to do to heat it up was boil some hot water, fill the liner, and stand it up in the hot water it seemed to float straight up easily as long as the water was about half way up the liner. You could try it with the bigger ones. you would prolly just need more water.

You can put whatever amount you want in a bottle. The little ones are a waste of money. You don't need to heat the milk up. I kept a water jug on the counter. Room temp. water is just fine.

warm tap water, or if you're using bottled water just microwave it til its warm....before adding the formula

okay, i was thinking i could make a 4 oz bottle with the large liners and just push out the air until the formula comes out. Also, how long can a pre-made bottle stay in the fridge? At night, if the baby wakes up to eat before bed can i pre make about 3 bottles, store it in the fridge so i can just warm it up and it will be quicker? Or will it go bad over night.

I put the bottle in a bowl or big cup and run water over it for a while then test it on my arm.. And yeah, I put like 4oz in at at time.. i just let the air out of it. Works for us.

24 hours as long as its refrigerated and baby's mouth hasn't been on it.

Nope, you can use room temp water to mix it with.
