As a new parent, there are countless choices to make. It can all get overwhelming very quickly. It’s natural to want the best for your baby in all aspects of care, but the best choice isn’t always a clear one. Luckily, there are many wonderful products available for your little one and they just keep getting better and better. One of those such products is a feeding solution that made the Time’s list of “Best Inventions.” It’s called the Nanobébé.
This bottle is unlike any you’ve ever seen. And when paired with the Baby’s Brew unique portable bottle warming system, you’ll have the feeding part checked off your baby’s list.
Nanobébé is Different from Other Baby Bottles
With the Nanobébé still being fairly new to the bottle scene, you might be inclined to lean toward more familiar brands. But the Nanobébé gives new parents a bottle option with a design that mimics an actual breast while also preserving breastmilk nutrients through faster warming. Though another choice could be great for your baby, the innovation behind the Nanobébé makes it a bottle you’ll very likely want to try.
How does the Nanobébé work?
The idea for the design of the Nanobébé came from a dad’s frustration with the amount of time it took him to warm up his three-month-old’s bottle. In order to preserve the nutrients within the breastmilk he was feeding his baby, he would have to wait for at least 10 minutes for the milk to come to a suitable temperature by sitting it in a bowl of warm water. If you’ve been there, you know.
So how does the cylindrical design improve matters? Ultimately the milk within the bottle is spread out into a thinner layer. The breastmilk’s surface area expands, allowing it to warm twice as fast as milk in a traditional bottle. This still allows the breastmilk nutrients to be preserved (which doesn’t happen if you warm milk in a microwave).
Being able to warm milk faster for your baby is a great reason to love this bottle. It makes it easy for parents to use, and gets your hungry baby fed faster. Happy baby, happy family!
But the designers saw another factor missing from every other bottle on the market. None of them were shaped like a breast. This made for a huge opportunity. Babies who are typically breastfed can sometimes become “bottle shy” when they are used to feeding from a breast. Having a bottle with a breast shape makes it an excellent bottle option for babies who need to transition from breast to bottle.
This bottle sounds amazing, right? So, let’s talk about the best way to warm your baby’s milk while utilizing this bottle – both at home and on the go.
Warming Milk in the Nanobébé
Since almost all other bottle warmers on the market won’t work with the Nanobébé due to its unique shape, you essentially have three choices for warming your baby’s milk:
- A bowl of warm water
- The Smart Warming Bowl by Nanobébé
- The Baby’s Brew Pro – a battery-powered portable bottle warmer
Though a bowl of warm water definitely works (and there will be times in a pinch where it will be your only option) it’s not usually ideal. Having a system that fits the design of your specific bottle is usually the fastest and cleanest way to go.
Here’s what you can expect with the Smart Warming Bowl and the Baby’s Brew.
Warming the Nanobébé with The Smart Warming Bowl
The Smart Warming Bowl is offered in Nanobébé’s various line of products. Since it’s made specifically for the special shape of their bottle, it will warm the milk more quickly than with a regular bowl filled with warm water. The fill line, though seemingly basic, is also a nice feature on the Smart Warming Bowl. I can’t tell you how many times I’ve filled a bowl with water to warm a bottle only to have it be not enough or too much water
Additionally, it adheres to the medical guidelines that milk be warmed in a bowl of water to prevent overheating.
This non-electrical option offers both safe and fast heating of the Nanobébé.
The downside to this option is that it’s not user-friendly when you are out and about. Luckily, there is one portable bottle warmer that you can count on to warm your baby’s milk while you get out and enjoy life.
Warming the Nanobébé with the Baby’s Brew
One of the best products a new parent can buy to simplify their life is a portable bottle warmer. Having to hunt up a bowl of water to warm your baby’s bottle of milk can be time-consuming and frustrating. One of the best portable bottle warmers available is the Baby’s Brew. Actually, it’s the only option that will work with the uncommon design of the Nanobébé!
If you plan to use Nanobébé’s amazing bottles, you’ll also need the Baby’s Brew to warm your baby’s milk while you are out running errands, grabbing a bite to eat, hanging at the park…or wherever else life might take you.
The Baby’s Brew is the only battery-powered bottle warmer and has recently received an updated design. This means no cords to have to worry about or having to fill a device with hot water before you leave the house and wondering if you got the temperature right.
What’s also great about the Baby’s Brew is that you can choose precisely the right temperature of milk your baby desires.The other notable characteristic of the Baby’s Brew is that it aligns with Nanobebe’s mission to ensure breastmilk nutrients are preserved. It uses a slow heat mechanism just like warming a bottle in a bowl of water. This also makes it completely safe for baby since there won’t be any hotspots. But since it’s portable, you can start heating your baby’s milk with plenty of time to spare and it will remain at that temperature for up to 4 hours.
Want to get started heating your Nanobébé with the Baby’s Brew? Just use the breast pump adapter included with your Nanobébé starter set, and then purchase the Nanobébé adapter made by Baby’s Brew to fit the Nanobébé perfectly. You can choose the bottle warmer only or the combined bottle warmer and formula dispenser option.
