When i say this item changed my life i'm under selling it! I have a new born baby (3 weeks old) and the amount of bottles I've prepared is unbelievable.

The hassle of boiling a kettle, waiting for it to cool down, making the formula, waiting for that to cool down, all the while a screaming baby is in the other room wanting his dinner!

This amazing machine delivers a shot of hot water to sterilise the formula, and then fills the rest of the bottle with purified filtered water to make it the perfect temperature for you baby to drink straight away!

I cant tell you how amazing that is, in less than 2 minutes you baby is feeding and happy.

Life changing!!!!!

I paid £100 for mine so I'm a bit gutted but now amazon has it for just £69.99 it's the hottest deal and the most life changing!!

You can just have cooled boiled water in a sterilised bottle in the fridge and have boiling water in a flask and mix the two when your baby needs a feed. And problem solved. Flask cost be £8 on amazon. No more screaming baby and saved me a fortune of money.

you

you need to mix the formula with hot water before you cool it to kill the bacteria under the new guidelines.

This is ridiculous. I always premade, make with freshly cooled boiled water hot enough to kill bacteria, cool quickly and put in back of fridge, microwave for 40 secs when needed and shake well, much quicker and fine. They only changed the guidelines because idiots didn't know how to mix milk with hot enough water to kill bacteria.
Alternatively the others I breastfed. This gadget could only possible appeal to people completely brainwashed out of common sense!

Haha 40 secs was obviously for a full bottle! For a newborn (I never bottle fed a newborn, earliest was 6 weeks and by then on 8-10 bottles!) you only need microwave for 10-20 secs. Much quicker.

Read the new guidelines before posting negative comments

Not saying this is not a good deal but how hard is it to keep a bowl of water in your fridge make the bottle then stick it in the water in the bowl its ready in 5 minutes.

What a waste of money!

I've ALWAYS pre made bottles. My 9 and 7 year old are perfectly fine! And my now 14 month old (who still has pre made bottles) is perfectly fine too!

Not voted either way.

Well the product exists and it's cheaper on this link. For those who can afford it it will save a lot of time and faffing around. I love mine and wouldn't part with it. I also wash my pants in a washing machine, take my car to a car wash and buy my beef from a supermarket rather that slaughter cows my self.

Bought, thanks OP.

Thanks! Looks like a good buy. We don't have/want a microwave and want to follow current guidelines so this will be ideal when baby comes.
Appreciate you taking the time to post it!

Brilliant find, I wish I had this for my 2 when the were baby's. will definitely be getting one of these if I have any more. X

not for everyone but great for us
just ordered thanks

Lol of course I know the guidelines. I have 7 children aged 14 down to 7 months and believe me they have changed the guidelines every couple of years. I used the method the paediatricians in hospital told me was the safest. The guidelines are to protect babies who's parents do not have the mental capacity to make sensible decisions. The currents one regarding water temperature came about when the fad 4/5 years ago for adding formula to cool bottles lead to the deaths of 3 babies who were already unwell (chronic illness) the previous well known method of premade, was changed because some people did not cool the bottles, or kept them longer than 24 hours. Guidelines are to protect the most vulnerable. I am very well researched and up to date and there is nothing wrong with premaking and microwaving if you are sensible. With a screaming baby a few seconds is a god send.
This is just a money making gadget targeting those who don't intend to bother trying up breastfeed. You still have to wash and sterilise the bottle and measure the milk. The wait for a silly machine!
I guess you'll not bother contacting SIDS for advice and just buy a new mattress for every baby too.

I wash my nappies in the washing machine, don't wash my car and am vegetarian

Sorry there was a smiley face at the end of that comment and a 'I guess that's why we disagree!'

Yep!

This machine's instructions does not follow the current guidelines. Current guidelines are to boil water to kill any bacteria. Filtering does not do this or you would simply buy/use filtered water to make bottles. The hot shot is initial so would kill bacteria present in the milk but NOT the water that is then 'filtered' in. Therefore this machine does not follow current guidelines especially as it holds enough for 6 bottles. Meaning the water 'sits'. Unless you fill it with previously boiled water, you are not actually doing the right thing at all and babies should not have filtered or tap water until 6 months (and then not to mix milk with). Nowhere in the instructions online does it state using previously boiled water.

You should all complain to the manufacturers. Tap water, even filtered, is not sterile. I can't actually believe they are marketing this for newborns. I commented on this thread initially as I think there is a far quicker way to bottle feed that's cheaper, but now am shocked to find this machine flouts the guidelines and encourages people to feed their tiny babies with non sterile water, worse still it's warmed so any possible contaminants will flourish.

Some bacteria survives the boiling process. Boiling only kills the vegetative cells.The spores cannot be killed at 100 C so were all going to die!

Clearly we are not and my baby has tap water in his beaker as he is 7 months. The point is, this machine actively goes against the guidelines and is being miss sold. The guidelines are clear. Formula should be made up with boiled sterile water. Regardless of your flippant comment, your initial comment to me was to be up to date with the guidelines regarding the method I suggested. This was irrelevant as this machine is just a money spinner for tommee tippee and they have failed to follow the guidelines. This could potentially cause problems and having had a very small baby hospitalised I genuinely think you should raise this with Tommee Tippee. I have emailed them myself.

Well we will all die. I was just stating facts. Good luck with the crusade.

Lol life's too short anyway love. I emailed them, end of. You want to put tiny babies at risk you carry on, not my problem! At least in your eyes it made your life easier. Usually our tap water is fairly safe so hopefully you'll be ok, but don't tell me to read the guidelines when you don't yourself

Original Poster

I have read and understood the guidelines and you seem to be a stickler for detail so let me point out where you're going wrong.

1. NHS guidelines state not to reheat bottles in a microwave.

2. Boil water as you need it, do not use previously boiled water.

3. Do not use preprepared bottles kept in a fridge as bacteria can still grow.

4. No mention of purified filtered water! Must be ok as scientifically it's as safe as 5 minutes at boiling point if not safer depending on the filter.

Now your dangerous comment about people not bothering to breast feed! My wife medically can't breast feed and that makes her feel inadequate and a bad mum, which I have obviously told her it's not her fault and she is a great mummy. Dingle dads, adopted parents and gay male couples will also struggle with breast feeding (did you know that disease including HIV can be passed to a baby through breast milk so wet nurses are risky).

Now you have clearly misunderstood how the machine works (I'm guessing you haven't seen one or used one). The tap water sits above the filter (replaced ever 2-3 bottle for a new borne).

The machine draws the water through the filter as it needs it. Taking out all the Nasty additives put in by the water board including chlorine. There are also minerals and other impurities picked up from the piped under ground

just breast feed my baby girl loves milk straight from the breast and i dont get woken to make bottles i know people say its a hassle but its more hassle getting up to prepare a bottle in the middle of the night and its free booby snack milk

I love gadgets and anything that can make life just that tiny bit more manageable, the hubby likes the fact that it appears to be similar to a coffee machine for babies. There are some very helpful reviews from people who have purchased and used this product on Amazon... with less judgmental views. I'll definitely be considering buying one, hope to have a look at one up close at the baby show.

Thanks for this great deal! It was featured over on the HUKD blog PLAYPENNIES

I find it rather offensive when people judge others on whether they breast feed or not. Not everyone gets to choose to breast feed and mums that cant shouldn't be made to feel inadequate if they bottle feed. At the end of the day it is down to individual choice. Breast feeding a baby doesn't make them a better mother. I'm going to contradict myself here but the comments on here should be about whether the machine is worth buying, written by people who have bought it. Not by people guessing on whether it is any good.

although you entitled to your opinion as everybody is do you feel the need to criticise people because they don't want to do do things the way you did to call people idiots or brainwashed is quite nasty grow a heart
