Avent Milk Powder Dispenser
Advantages: Ideal for travelling, good price
My husband and I wanted to get used to taking our new baby out to places, and so we have slowly been venturing further and further, trying to get used to all the stuff you need to take with you, and feeling like we are becoming more efficient at it with each outing. One piece of equipment that is a must for anyone bottle feeding their baby and wanting to take them out for the day or just out of the house over a feeding time. All my equipment in regards to bottlefeeding is from the Phillips Avent range, and this piece is no exception: the Avent Milk Powder Dispenser, which allows you to take up to three feeds worth of formula, already measured out, meaning all you have to do whilst out somewhere is add it to your sterilised water.
This product is available on the likes of Amazon for just under £4, and is blue in colour. Alongside offering the three separate compartments for you pre measured formula, you can also use this when your baby gets older as a food container, since there are in fact three parts to the item: the lid which has a small dispenser where you can pour out your formula into the bottle and is small enough to ensure that you get all the powder into the bottle and don't loose any out the side as you pour. The bottom part of the item consists of two parts: the clear tub which can be used as the snack tub in later months/years )6m+ in fact), and then the three part dispenser made of blue plastic, which sits inside the clear tub.
Before using this product for the first time it is vital that you follow the instructions and sterilise the product either in a steriliser or by boiling. We used the former of these for handiness. As well as being suitable for the steriliser, you can also safely use it in the microwave as well as the dishwasher
I have used this product several times now and found it to be an invaluable way of transporting formula when out and about. Nobody wants to have to carry around the large tin of formula every time they venture out the door and by using a product such as this, where you can measure out the formula you need in advance and simply add it to your water, it makes life so much easier with a baby. When I first purchased this product, I did notice on the likes of amazon, some negative comments about it, but I cannot say that I have noticed any. I don't find any problem in getting the formula out of the container, I have so far not had any leakages or one portion of powder going into another, and although little bits of moisture can be hard to dry in the corners of the product after washing, as long as you let it air off before putting it away or using it again, this shouldn't be a problem, plus I already do this with other tupperware items.
All in all, I am very glad that I purchased this item, and for the price, I think it is great value for money, since it is ideal for being out and about with your baby, and minimising all the stuff you need to bring with you on an outing. Anything that can simplify life with a baby is a positive in my book.
Summary: Great for being out and about with a bottle fed baby!
