We use the Playtex Drop Ins to feed our baby. Now that it is winter time, we are going to start warming the formula. Can we place the bottle with the mixed formula already made into a pot of warm water to warm it up? OR is it best to warm the water first and then mix the formula?

Thank you!

What can I do next?

You can warm them in hot water from the sink or stove. Just warm the water on stove first. Turn it off then put bottle in. I am a professional nanny and have done this many times. We usually use hot water from the sink, but either way is ok.

I use these with my son. I usually warm a bowl of water in the microwave for about a minute and a half, then stick the bottle in the water. Just make sure you test the temperature of the formula before you give it to your baby.

I used these for all three of my kids. You can do it either way. If you put the mixed bottle in water though make sure you have a burp rag or towel handy because water gets trapped between the liner and the bottle and then leaks out. So you want to dry it as good as possible.

Hi! :) I did both, actually! I would run water through the coffee pot to warm it up, then pour that into a bowl. I would mix up the bottle with cold water then let the bottle sit in the warmed water for a few minutes. I didn't use the microwave because it would create hotspots in the formula, and I was afraid it would melt the bags.
I also heated the water up on the stove and poured it into the bottle. When my babies woul hit close to 10-11 months I would use warm water from the tap, and give it to them cooler and cooler every week to wean them to colder drinks and the sippy. Hope it helps!!:)
