I know exactly what you’re thinking, why am I promoting a bottle when I breastfeed Zara.Well, just because I breastfeed doesn’t mean I am against bottle feeding. In fact, I quite openly believe that ‘fed is best’ and however a baby is fed is no one else’s business.
Now, I completely formula fed Keira and I switched Joshua to formula when he was 3 months old so I know all to well the struggle a formula feeding parent has when out and about. There are so many different guidelines to follow regarding how to prepare formula, the NHS website has some great information but always check with the directions on the back of the formula box for how best to prepare. The one thing that always causes confusion is how to prepare a bottle of formula when out and about. Guidelines say that each bottle is to be prepared fresh with boiling water but this can cause problems when you’re not around a kettle to get that boiling water. There is a solution, in the formula of this amazing bottle.
I was sent the Fuelbaby Bottle for the purposes of a review, all opinions and thoughts are my own. This post may contain affiliate links. For more information, please visit my Disclosure page.
The Fuelbaby Bottle is the perfect solution for feeding on the go. It allows you to prepare the formula in advance without going against the guidelines and ensuring that your baby’s formula is prepared in a sterile environment. These bottles are BPA free and completely non-toxic, they also have an anti-colic air system to help reduce the amount of air baby swallows when drinking.
Now for the good part.
The bottom of the bottle unscrews, allowing you to fill it up with the required amount of formula. So when you’re out and about all you have to do is pre-fill a flask with boiling water, fill the bottle when it’s needed, push the button at the bottom of the bottle (which releases the formula), shake the bottle to mix and either wait for it to cool down or hold it under cold, running water. It’s as simple as that.
You ensure that the formula is met with boiling water, which is meant to sterilise the powder formula, and this helps to keep the milk as safe as it can be for your baby. So no more faffing with trying to tip formula pots into the bottle, because I know just how much of a pain that can be.
