You’re on a day out with your baby and one of you (or both) has just hit panic mode because the milk bottle needs to be warmed. When you’re on the go, giving your baby a warm bottle can feel like an impossible task. And since babies let you know exactly how they feel about being kept waiting, you need a solution ASAP. A travel bottle warmer can be a fast and reliable solution.

Whether you’re in the car, on a plane or on a boat, with the best travel bottle warmers you’ll never have to worry about adjusting your travel plans to fit your feeding schedule. Portable bottle warmers mean that baby can hang. Your child can travel with you no matter where you’re going and still have the comfort of a warm bottle. Some bottle warmers need an outlet but others can be powered with a power bank. If you don’t want to deal with any of that then you could always use a thermos-type container. If you want your bottle warmer to pull double-duty then, consider one that also accommodates food pouches.

Warming up milk on the go is one of the great bonuses of technological advancements. But, even if your bottle warmer has temperature control (some do and some don’t) it’s still a good idea to test the temperature before giving it to your child.

How to choose the best portable bottle warmer

The best thing about a travel bottle warmer is that it won’t intrude on your family’s vacation plans. Traveling with a baby is not for the faint of heart so anything that can make it easier needs a spotlight. But, how do you choose the portable bottle warmer that’s right for you? Here are a few things to consider:

Power source

Depending on where or how you’re traveling, you might not always have access to an outlet. In that case, you might opt for a battery-operated, usb-powered or thermos-style bottler warmer.


When kids are involved “traveling light” isn’t exactly a thing. Still, with everything else you’ll need, if you’re short on space you might want to consider a travel bottle warmer that’s as compact as possible.


Babies can be finicky bottle aficionados. So once you find the brand and style they like, there’s no switching things up! Unfortunately, not every bottle is compatible with every bottle warmer. Double check that the bottles you use will work with a particular warmer or if they include an adapter that matches.

Warming time

If you know your baby won’t patiently wait for warmed up milk then, one thing to keep in mind is how fast the warming time is.


The factor that will affect how breezy clean-up can be all depends on what the bottler warmer is made up of. Consider hand-wash vs dishwasher safe.
