We chose fairly early on in my pregnancy that Florence would be bottle fed. Not because I have anything against breastfeeding, but because it just suits our lifestyle better and so far I am happy to say we made the right decision. We have routine, Florence is gaining weight by the second and Sean & I share all the feeds giving us both that chance to bond with our daughter. However, like most things, bottle feeding does have some drawbacks, and one of those is that the Milk you prepare has an expiry time on it depending on where and when it was prepared and stored. That’s where Milk Monster comes in.
Controversial as it may be, we prepare four bottles at a time and store them at the back of the fridge until Florence is ready for a feed and then we heat them up in a jug of boiling water. Because of the risk of bacteria growing, it is important that we keep a track of how long each bottle has 1) been in the fridge )recommended max. is 24 hours) and 2) how long it’s been out for the feed (recommended max. 2 hours).
Milk Monster is a clever little timer which attaches to your baby’s bottle. You can set the time required and it counts down in minutes how long you have left before the milk needs to be thrown away. This comes in especially handy if your baby falls asleep mid fed but is likely to wake up hungry before the milk spoils. Florence tends to split her mid morning feed and with the Milk Monster I can have peace of mind that I’m not feeding her anything that might upset her tummy.
The Milk Monster is packed with features designed to make parents life easier, not only is it easy to use – there are only three buttons and you really can’t go wrong! – the outer case is dishwasher safe, has glow in the dark elements to save you fumbling around trying to find it during those night feeds & the entire unit is splash proof. It’s available in in a range of colours too!
