“With the Bib’expresso it is now possible to prepare a bottle in a few seconds, with just one hand and be certain it is at the perfect temperature for baby. The Bib’expresso’s unique water flow mixes powdered formula quickly, reducing air bubbles and eliminating hot spots. Product comes with a compact, removable bottle and food warmer that can be used to heat food jars and prepared bottles of breast milk and formula. And, the bottle storage compartment located on the back of unit doubles as a microwavable bottle sterilizer, holding up to three 10 ounce (300 ml) bottles. With a self cleaning steam system, you save time and the Bib’expresso is sterilized for future use.”
It’s been quite a while since Bug was a baby but I still remember those long nights of no sleep, the crying, the diapers…Bug was the type of baby who wouldn’t cry unless he was hungry. His favorite thing was to give me no notice. He would just suddenly start whaling at the top of his lungs. Then the race was on, to make the fastest bottle possible. I wish I would have had the Bib’expresso Baby Bottle and Food Warmer back then. If I had, I could have easily had his bottle made in 90 seconds flat! It would have saved my ears from hearing him cry for longer :(
Although I don’t have a baby at my home, my sister does. So I had her help me out with this review. We both tried it out for the first time together (so I know what I am talking about 🙂 ). You open the top and fill it with your desired amount of water. You close the lid and push the start button. I was amazed at how fast it heats the water! It only takes 90 seconds! And it heats the water to a perfect temperature of 98°F. While it’s warming you put your formula in the bottle and place it on the container grid. Once it’s done warming it beeps 3 times, then you press the button to fill the bottle with the water.
You can also use it to warm breast milk or baby food by using the Water Bath mode. For this you can leave it where it is (on top) or you can take it off. You fill it with water (to the max fill line), place your bottle or baby food jar inside, then press one of the two buttons. The first button warms room temperature items (or small amounts), the second warms refrigerated items (or larger amounts). Once it’s done it beeps 3 times.
It cleans itself! Yep, it has a clean mode button. You just fill it with water and it will heat and sterilize it, then you send the water through (like you would making a bottle) and discard it.
Another great feature is the bottle sterilizer stored on the back. It is a microwave steam sterilizer and can hold 3 bottles.
I was really impressed with the product from all that I saw, but the mom of the baby needed to try it out just to be sure. I am so happy to report that she loves it! She says: “The Bib’expresso is a heaven send. It takes all the guess work and hassle out of making bottles or warming baby food. It is quick and so easy to use. I really don’t dread those middle of the night feedings as much as I used to because I know I have the Bib’Expresso. I really like that I have 3 products in one, a bottle warmer/maker, baby food warmer, & a steam sterilizer. One thing to keep in mind it is pretty big for a bottle/food warmer so finding counter space for it might be a problem. I however love it’s features so much I don’t care how much space it takes up.”
