Babies are fussy when it comes to milk and they need it at the right temperature. I came across the Tommee Tippee Closer to Nature Insulated Bottle Bag while browsing on Amazon and I liked the offer and the pricing.

Thermos is the boss of baby thermos brands in the market. They are known for being versatile and for being best sellers in this segment. The product has a wide mouth that helps in pouring and storing milk easier with the right kind of container.
After using this thermos, I can vouch for their claims of keeping food hot or cold for approximately 9 to 14 hours depending on the type of foodstuff. Another feature I like most about this thermos is that the outer layer doesn’t become too hot making your palms sweat or doesn’t freeze your hands when you keep something cold. It stays neutral and that shows the build quality.

If you are a new mom and are still breastfeeding your baby and you intend to keep the expressed milk at the prescribed temperature, this is the right product for you. Lekebaby double baby thermos cold bag can hold two big bottles of milk nice and cold close to 8 hours. It is your perfect partner if you are out with your child and are traveling for long hours.
I can vouch for this as the temperature was nice and cool just like I had stored it when I first used it. I have also stored formula milk and it stayed at the same temperature. So that’s a bonus. It is not just for breast milk but for other liquids too.

Best Baby Thermos – Buying Guide
When I started researching I knew I have to consider the below-mentioned factors as I always want the best for all new parents and their babies. Here are a couple of things our team at TheMiniBlog took into consideration while curating this list of the best baby thermos.
- Material – The first thing you will need to consider is buying a baby thermos that is made from premium-quality food-grade stainless steel. Since stainless steel is corrosion-resistant and non-toxic, your baby’s food will remain safe and wouldn’t get adulterated. Choose a double-walled container since that creates a vacuum and prevents heat from escaping.
- Avoid Chemicals – When picking the right thermos to store your baby’s food, make sure it does not contain any harmful chemicals and is BPA and Phthalate free. Always go through the product description and if something you like contains chemicals, stay away from them.
- Lid with Pressure – Picking a good thermos with a lid and pressure relief system will keep the food hot for longer periods of time by trapping the heat within. This also prevents the food from leaking or spilling if the thermos falls down or is left flat on any surface.
- Warranty – Finally, make sure that the product you’re interested in comes with a valid warranty. In case you receive a defected product or if your product gets damaged, you can claim the warranty and chances are that you can even get a replacement.
Now that you are aware of the best baby thermos you can buy, make the best use of this list. Share it with your friends and let us know which one is your favorite after you have used any from the list in the comments.
