Problem The milk is still cold Cause You may have selected an incorrect setting, are using a silicone bottle, or

have filled the bottle warmer with warm water. You may have not filled enough water in the bottle warmer. You may have placed bottle in bottle warmer after switching on the bottle

warmer Solution Place bottle in the bottle warmer Fill the bottle warmer with fresh room

temperature water Fill the bottle warmer with water to the level of the milk. If you have a large volume of milk to warm, fill to approximately 1cm below the top of the bottle warmer Select the milk volume setting based on the milk volume, not the bottle size Press the button to start warming

optimal result, check its temperature while it is warming Problem I warm the same amount of milk every time, but the time to warm milk is

different. Cause The time to warm the milk depends on the initial temperature of milk and

water If milk has been refrigerated and is initially cold, it will take longer to warm

the milk If water inside the bottle warmer is warm or hot, it takes longer to warm

the milk The sensor adjusts the heating pattern to avoid milk overheating Solution To ensure a consistent warming time, make sure the bottle warmer is filled

with enough fresh room tempera
