This wiki has been updated 23 times since it was first published in February of 2018. If you’re a busy parent who relies on a bottle warmer when preparing your baby’s milk, you’ll need a portable model that can be taken along when you’re on the go. The ones featured here use hot water or other sources of heat, and many conveniently don’t require electricity or even batteries. For safety, always be sure to test the temperature of any food or drink before giving it to an infant.

Editor's Notes

November 14, 2019:

Many parents choose to heat up their baby's milk when they realize their little one prefers a soothing, warm meal to one that's cold or at room temperature. And let's face it, when a baby is content and fed, the whole entire family feels happier.

Coming on board in this update are several models, including the Kiinde Kozii Voyager, which serves as a well-insulated thermos that you can fill with hot water and take in your diaper bag for the day. When your baby’s hungry, just pour the water into one of the two included cups, and set the bottle or jar inside. The cups conveniently come in two sizes, so you’re sure to have one on hand that suits your needs. This system is designed to work with the manufacturer’s Twist and Foodii pouches, as well as bottle of all sizes.

Another new addition, the Papablic Mini Portable, is quite similar. It too is a tightly-sealing, metal container (made of rust-proof stainless steel) that can be counted on to keep hot water heated all day long. Currently priced at less than $15, this is an affordable choice – and it carries a no-questions asked, money-back guarantee.

The newly added Munchkin Travel works quite differently: Just plug it into your car’s power socket, and it will warm your baby’s bottle via the attached, wraparound heating band. It’s a great way to warm up bottles conveniently while you’re driving. For safety’s sake, it has a built-in, automatic shutoff timer. This one is backed by a one-year warranty. Note that some parents have reported difficulty getting its adapter to fit into the power outlet.

Leaving the list today are the Lifeon Steam, Langyan Puncia, and Elfinbaby 3-in-1, which are no longer available at this time. In addition, the Chicco NaturalFit makes its departure, amidst reports of it overheating milk.

Whether you’re heating up formula, breast milk, or jar food, for safety’s sake, always make sure it’s an appropriate temperature before feeding it to your baby.
