Tommee Tippee seems to be quite on top of the latest trends in baby feeding (especially bottle feeding). I was SO pumped to receive for review and try out their latest gadget, the Perfect Prep. It helps you make a bottle, at the perfect temperature, within two minutes. Woah!
Tommee Tippee Perfect Prep
In three simple steps, you can make a perfectly heated bottle for your little one, in under 2 minutes. You place a sterilized bottle on the unit, a hot shot of water is released into the bottle which eliminates any bacteria in the formula and bottle. Add the correct amount of formula, cover and shake. Replace the bottle under the water spout and hit the button for it to continue to fill the bottle. There are settings for a 4-11 oz bottle, but it is calibrated to make sure it ALWAYS makes a bottle at 98 degrees, the perfect temperature for feeding. (According to Tommee Tippee, this little gadget is for modern, tech-savvy parents – I really hope I can fit into that very cool sounding group of people.)
I really like what the perfect prep can do for me – it takes the worry of heating a bottle in the microwave (which I KNOW you are not supposed to do… but many do it anyway!) or waiting for it to heat up in an electric warmer. I like that it kills any bacteria that might be in the formula powder or water – and the hot shot makes the formula dissolve quicker. Thank goodness it is only 3 steps – so I can convince the hubby late night feedings aren’t so bad.
The only thing I was a little bummed about – and really I am just lazy – I was thinking it was more like a Keurig for formula – and I could get out of the mixing it together part. It is not, I still have to do some of the measuring and mixing, but I am sure it is for a reason that it didn’t work out that it mixes in the powder for me too.
