Just wondering if anyone had any experience of it yet? Babies r us have it on offer now as well.
17/05/2013 at 15:59
JB ordered it. What's it on bru for? I will definitely buy if we can't bf.
17/05/2013 at 16:09
Can you not use a flask?
17/05/2013 at 16:17
Yes ck but that's not the point! I want instant convenience.
Rusty £66 plus I've got a code for £5 off, then 3% cashback through quidco plus a £10 babies r us voucher to spend another time making it really only £49. I'm wanting to buy it and if breast feeding doesn't work out I could sell it on it and take it back to the shop in a few weeks if bf'ing does work.

If it's on offer now then it's likely to keep being on offer.
Im genuinley intrigues as to why it is so great. I didnt find making bottles any faff. What if the machine breaks and doesnt put in the right number of scoops how can you tell?

I saw amazon have it for £56 now I think, plus you can get money off if you join their parent club thing (not sure what that entails).
Do you not add the powder and it adds the correct amount of water at the right temp? I guess you can double check the amount on the bottle? I think it looks good too, but then I like gadgets!
17/05/2013 at 16:38
Oh does it not add in the formula?.so does it just heat water?
17/05/2013 at 16:40
Amazon are out of stock of it at £56 but I've done some more reading up on it and going against it now for some reason.
17/05/2013 at 16:43
Is it the beeping that's put you off!?
17/05/2013 at 17:11
I've bought one when it was on offer in amazon, thanks to a text from rusty.
Obviously haven't used it yet. The one thing I would say is it is quite a lit bigger than I expected.

I'm with CK on this. I just don't get why people find making up bottles so difficult. For me the most faff is trying to count out scoops when you've a screaming baby distracting you which make you lose count. This machine doesn't even do that for you. Save your pennies towards something more essential like a decent breast pump to pro-long feeding if BF doesn't work out, then use a thermos flask and pre-count the scoops out into formula tubs. I could, however, change my mind if I saw one working and was amazed by it, but I doubt it. Will be interesting to see how people how have bought one make of it.

I thought it dispensed the formula until earlier today so now put off. I thought that you put bottle under machine, pressed a button and the bottle was made fully but that's not the case. I want bf'ing to work but just getting in a panic about needing to have everything possible NOW which is daft and a waste of money.
LWO I'm going to do exactly that and buy the medela I want in the next few weeks instead.
17/05/2013 at 17:36
I'm not keen on it as it's yet another thing to take up space on a kitchen worktop! I admit the counting the scoops is the hardest part!
I stick by my method of having a large flask made up with cooled boiled water, boil a little bit of water put, say 2oz of hot water with 6 scoops of powder then add the remaining 4oz of cooled water. Takes 2 minutes, and you only need a spare bottle to measure out the cooled water.
17/05/2013 at 18:06
Does the flak keep the water at over 70 for the whole day given that is the temp it needs to kill the bacteria in the formula ?
LWO, welli have to say your post came across as rather rude, I can't decide if it smug, arrogant or ignorant re "keeping breast feeding going". As a second time mum whose failure to breast feed last time was a huge contributory factor to serious pnd and comments like yours really hurt.
17/05/2013 at 18:20
Not sure if the flask question is directed at me? No the flask could be any container, just a stash of cooled boiled water, the 2oz of freshly boiled water would kill any bacteria, the cooled water is to top it up after the powder has been added to make it cool enough to feed. Effectively doing the same thing as the machine!
17/05/2013 at 18:26
I think we will get one if I can't breast feed, as H and I can't see enough to measure water into the bottles. So this would be the perfect solution for us.
17/05/2013 at 18:43
Ah ok, you have to the boil the kettle up each time. no way that would have worked with zoe who needed her fed NOW
17/05/2013 at 18:51
I'd totally get one if we weren't just coming to the end of bottle feeding.
17/05/2013 at 19:16
BG so put boiled water in a flask and let it cool and then close it? So when making the bottle I put the flask water in bottle, then formula than say 2oz of fresh boiled water? Even though I'm not planning to formula feed if possible I just want to get my head around the bottles incase as I'm finding it so confusing.
