Default road trip

we are taking a LONG road trip to see my family up north. we are travelling through northern ontario and the rest stops are not close together like they are in the U.S. Any suggestions on how to warm a bottle to feed Bella. The plug in warmers have been recalled and the outlet plug in ones are not recommended for glass bottles. we will try and stop at a restaurant or Mcds or something but if she wakes up and wants to eat...i would hate to give her a cold bottle. any suggestions? I was thinking of bring a thermos of hot water and then immersing it for a few minutes before giving it to her. Anything else?

A heating pad? Maybe you could wrap it around the bottle a while before she'll eat and it should heat up that way. You can buy an adapter to use in the cigarette lighter that allows you to plug in a regular "plug" like the first one
 
.

The Thermos is a good idea, too.

Have a fun trip!

Are you using powder formula? If so - why not fill steralise a thermos, and put in that water at the right temperature for a feed? If Isabella wants a feed, you can make it up there and then, without the worry of having to warm it.

I used to do this - when I gave up with the length of time the heat pads would take to warm a bottle!

Just an idea - I hope you guys have a great trip - and Isabella is a gorgeous baby!

I never really warmed bottles for either of my girls. They both received bottles of expressed milk from the time they were itty bitty, and after the first few times of hassling with trying to heat them I gave up. Neither of my girls had problems taking a room temp bottle or even a slightly chilled one.

Having said that, I'm sure it's not really the kind of advice you were looking for. But wanted to let you know that I'm sure if worst comes to worst and one of the other options doesn't work for you that I'm sure baby will do just fine with room temp. Good luck

Just thought that I would add;

I always warmed bottles for #1, however #2 had a very cold expressed bottle when she was 3 weeks old (DH had to do an emergency defrost after I got taken to the ER after a car accident), and she took it just fine! If Isabella is hungry, a room temperature bottle won't hurt
