How To Make a Baby Bottle: From Bottle Prep to Feed with Baby Brezza

Parents are always looking for new ways to make their routine quicker so that they can spend more time with their little ones and less time doing the mundane but necessary tasks that come with parenting. Making baby bottles can be a time-consuming process for many parents. Luckily, in modern day parenting there are innovative products to help make this process quicker and easier, saving you time when it matters the most.

How the Baby Brezza range saves you time throughout every step of your feeding journey:

1. Making The Perfect Bottle in Minutes

In the UK, almost three-quarters of babies will have consumed formula by six weeks old, and almost all babies will have been fed formula by the time they reach six months. Although formula feeding is a great solution for those who cannot or prefer to not breastfeed, if not done correctly contamination could pose a problem for you and your little one.

When making a bottle, make sure to wash your hands before scooping any baby powder into a bottle. In addition to this, you will also need to level off your scoop using a leveller or by using the flat side of a clean, dry knife. It is important to not miss this step as too much formula can cause constipation and too little could stop providing your baby with all the nutrients they need.

To get the bottle the right temperature many parents opt to use a kettle. However, this can be time consuming as the bottle needs to cool for around 30 minutes before adding in the formula. When looking after your little one time can fly and you might forget about the boiled water. Because of this many parents find themselves discarding this water and having to restart the boiling and cooling down process all over again!

We understand that there are a lot of steps to consider when making a baby bottle. That’s why the team at Baby Brezza have created the Baby Brezza Formula Pro Advanced – the most advanced way to automatically make a warm formula bottle instantly. The Formula Pro Advanced mixes formula and water to the perfect consistency without any measuring, mixing, waiting, or fuss! Holding up to 700g of formula in an airtight germ-free container, you can customise your baby’s bottle with 3 temperature settings, and you can dispense 60-300 ml of formula or water only. Plus, it works with virtually all formula brands and baby bottles!

2. Warming Up Milk Quickly and Safely

Some parents who are breastfeeding decide to freeze their milk which allows them to store their milk for a later date. Although there are various ways to thaw frozen breastmilk such as running it under warm water, defrosting it in the fridge, or placing it in a bowl of warm water, these methods can take any length of time from 5 minutes to 12 hours. Although the 5 minutes it may take to thaw the breastmilk under a warm tap might sound tempting, this option is not eco-friendly nor is it cost-efficient.

Other parents opt for bottle warmers. However, whilst many bottle warmers can defrost breast milk, most traditional bottle warmers use only steam heat, which is too hot and can destroy those all-important breast milk proteins.

It is not just breastfeeding parents who need to think about heating baby bottles. Some formula-feeding parents also decide to warm their baby’s milk due to their baby’s preference. Again, placing the bottle in a bowl of warm water or under a warm tap takes time and is not cost-efficient.

The Baby Brezza Bottle & Breast Milk Warmer gradually heats the milk in a warm water bath, allowing the proteins to be preserved within the milk. It is the only bottle warmer with two warming modes to safely warm breastmilk and formula. Being easy to use and fitting virtually all bottles, milk storage bags, and baby food jars, the Baby Brezza Bottle & Breast Milk Warmer is a great addition to your feeding routine.

3. Cleaning, Sterilising, and Drying Bottles So You Don’t Have To

85% of parents hand wash bottles, breast pump parts, and accessories daily. Some of those who do not handwash resort to using a dishwasher for their cleaning. However, it is important to understand that dish-washed and hand-washed items will not be sterilised. A dishwasher can only clean your feeding equipment as it will not reach a high enough temperature for the minimum amount of time required to be sterilised. Germs can still remain which means baby bottle parts and accessories must then be sterilised after they have been in the dishwasher or hand washed. This can be a long process.

Sterilising can be done in many ways. More traditional methods include boiling the products in hot water or using microwave steam bags. However, these methods are often time-consuming and can be possibly unsafe. Both of these methods of sterilisation could burn as boiling water can splash onto skin and hot steam can also burn.  

In recent years, both UV and steam sterilisers have made their way onto the market. Whilst UV sterilisers may appeal to more tech-savvy parents, UV light only kills germs if it directly shines on the product surfaces that contain bacteria. This can be problematic for bottle teats and dummies which are likely to miss the up-and-down straight path where the UV light shines. Whereas steam, which is a gas, can easily spread across the entire surface of a bottle or pump part regardless of shape. Plus, some UV sterilisers can require a very long cleaning time to kill 99.9% of germs – upwards of 60 minutes!

Baby Brezza has created two inventions that will revolutionise your bottle-washing journey. With the press of one button, the Baby Brezza Bottle Washer Pro can wash, sterilise and dry your items in just 88 minutes. In the UK, most dishwashers take between 1.5 and 4 hours to wash and dry. That excludes having to sterilise and dry the parts afterward! The Bottle Washer Pro will save you time and money as it also uses 50% less water than hand washing.

With so many options out there for modern day parents, trying to make your baby a perfect bottle can sometimes feel like an overwhelming and confusing process.

In conclusion, there is not a ‘one size fits all’ approach to making a baby bottle. Although many claim to have the ‘best method’, what is best for your family it ultimately your decision. So, embrace the learning process, be patient with yourselves, and feel empowered to choose what aligns best with you and your little one.
