Avent bottle warmers, made by Philips, provide a quick and efficient way to warm-up your baby's milk, formula or solid baby foods. Philips makes two different types of Avent bottle warmers. The first one has a simple knob for setting the temperature of the unit. The other is a digital unit with multiple settings, depending on what and how much you are heating. Both use hot water to bring either a bottle or food container to the proper temperature.

Electric Bottle and Baby Food Warmer

Step 1

Place the warmer on a stable, level surface, and plug it in. Place the warmer basket in the warmer base.

Step 2

Place the filled, assembled baby bottle or food container in the warmer. For smaller bottles or containers, fill the warmer with water to just above the level of milk in the bottle or food in the container. For larger bottles or containers, fill the warmer with water to just below the rim of the warmer.

Step 3

Turn the warmer on. Turn the knob on the front of the warmer to setting 3. For smaller bottles, leave them in the warmer for 4 to 5 minutes. For medium bottles, warm them for 5 to 7 minutes and for larger bottles, 6 to 7 1/2 minutes. Baby food containers should be heated for 4 1/2 to 5 minutes. Some special bottles from Avent use setting 2.

Step 4

Remove the bottle or container from the warmer after the appropriate time has passed. Test the milk or food temperature before feeding your baby to avoid burns.

Digital Bottle and Baby Food Warmer

Step 1

Place the warmer on a stable, level surface. Plug it in. Release the front catch on the lid, and open the lid.

Step 2

Fill the warmer with 1 oz. of water for a bottle with contents at room temperature, 5 oz. for a bottle with refrigerated contents or a food container of baby food that is either room temperature or cold.

Step 3

Place the filled and assembled baby bottle or food container in the warmer. Close the lid until the latch clicks in place. Hold the "Power/Mode Selection" button down for 3 seconds to turn the warmer on.

Step 4

Press the "Power/Mode Selection" button to choose the appropriate milk or food selection. Press the "Volume Selection/Start" button to choose the proper amount of milk or food.

Step 5

Hold the "Volume Selection/Start" button down to start the warming cycle. When the warmer beeps for 30 seconds, and all display lights flash, the cycle is complete.

Step 6

Open the lid, carefully, to release any steam. Carefully, remove the bottle or container from the unit with a clean cloth. Test the temperature of the milk or food before feeding your baby to avoid burns.
