My first post so be kind!

I went into Boots in Ilford this afternoon to exchange my Avent bottle warmer, as my one had gone faulty, to my surprise they had the Avent IQ bottle warmers on clearance at £20, normal price £40. It's still £40 online.
I asked a member of staff why it was on clearance and they said they think Boots will stop stocking it. Not sure if this is nationwide.

Hi
Thanks for posting and welcome to HUKD. I have added an image to your post.
This is a link, made by rayman, which explains how to add images in great detail. It’s worth taking a look at if you are going to post more deals in future : - http://www.hotukdeals.com/item/339941/how-to-post-and-host-images-for-thr/
Or follow the link in my signature.
Kind regards

:whistling:i bought the tommee tippee version for £8 from TKMaxx a little while back. Even at £20 this seems expensive to me

brilliant price. tommee tippee one is nowhere near the same spec as the avent IQ. avent IQ as far as I'm aware is the only one where you tell it what youve put in and it heats to correct temperature! brilliant product and great price. i paid £25 for a second hand one off ebay a few months ago! heat and rep added!

bottle warmers are a such waste of money. just use a jug of boiling water. cheaper and quicker.

I've just been blessed with a baby son, and we have been told by the hospital, health workers, mid-wives and the back of the baby milk powder that you are suppossed to make the milk up with hot (more than 5 but less than 30 mins off the boil - so that it is more than 70 degrees).

Apparrently the 70 degrees heat kills any possible bacteria within the milk powder as no milk powders are made in a STERILE environment, they are made in good clean FOOD QUALITY environments but not STERILE, and also once the box is open bacteria can enter and malking up with 70 degrees kills any that may be there.

So, we have been instructed to make up hot and cool them down to temp using a bowl of cold water. This is a major pain and takes ages (oh and your not suppossed to make any up in advance either as people used to).

My question is, if people are buying these bottle warmers (the old "best way" of making bottles up) why have we been given conflicting advice to make up hot and cool down.

Any help would be appreciated, but to me, if these instructions are what everyone is getting then sureley this item is redundant ?? Help.

everyone gets advice, but everyone can do what works best for them. at the end of the day there arent many people who have time to make each bottle fresh and i have a 6 month old who has had bottles made up for the whole day since he was 4 weeks old and he has never had any troubles with his tummy or anything else. i make 4 bottles at a time with water left for 30 minutes from boiled. i then cool quickly in cold water and then keep in fridge. while i am downstairs i use boiling water to heat bottles which takes about 8-10 mins. when he has and earlyish morning bottle i use the bottle warmer upstairs. which only takes about 4 mins. so this bottle warmer is great and has never over or under heated my bottles!

Hi all, we have twin boys who are now 14 months, we have used this bottle warmer from when they were one month old, they have had no problems, this bottle warmer for me outperforms all other warmers, i had first purchased a tommee tippee warmer, but found it often overheated bottle, and it was also difficult working out how long to heat for, with this warmer, you can set according to mls in bottle, and it also beeps when it is done, so if you fall asleep in the middle of the night after putting bottle in warmer, it should wake you up.
This warmer for us was a blessing, although it has gone faulty once during first twelve months, but we have used heavily, and did it get replaced under guarantee.

Ok after 11yrs and 4 babies we have this honed to a fine art :thumbsup: here is the quickest, simplest and safest way to do your bottles. remembering the current advice the NHS provide that you should not premake and fridge store feeds (they used to say differently but changed their mind recently :roll:)

- firstly two kettles makes life Sooo much easier so buy a cheap seperate kettle for baby bottle water (£4.50 from Argos)
- Boil a kettle full of fresh water and leave it in the kettle to cool.
- either fill all your bottles with the cooled boiled water and seal and leave like that (no need to refrigerate as there is no milk in there) or when it's time for a feed measure a bottle out from the cooled boiled water in baby kettle
- Boil your 'normal' kettle and heat the bottle of water in a jug of boiling water. As it's not ice cold it will take only 2mins (not the 8-10mins someone said earlier).
- once at right temp just add your powedered milk, shake well and serve :)

I purchased a "warm jar" or "thermo pot" from Hong Kong, makes life so much easier.

I am surprised they don't sell warm jars in the UK bearing in mind we are a nation of tea drinkers.

It's a nightmare isn't it! My little man is 4 months now and from the beginning we have boiled the kettle and put the water in a flask ready to use when we need it. It is easy to replace this water through the day to keep it above 70 degrees. It does get easier, apart from the night feeds you can pretty much guess when they'll want their bottle so it can be made 10 minutes in advance.

For those who missed out Mothercare is currently doing this for £26.66 instore or £26.66 + £4.95 online. Argos next cheapest at £29.99 but out of stock near me. Call Mothercare and double check price, one local branch had it for full price.
