    I'm looking for the best way to heat up milk. Preferable methods other than microwave, or heating with water on stove.

    Bottle warmers? I'm only going to be feeding about 10-12 kids, but just 2 at a time.

    If anyone has any experience with bottle warmers or another appliance to warm their milk I'd love some feedback.

    This isn’t very helpful, but we used a cheap little bottle warmer from Walmart for the longest time, and it worked great! I don’t know the brand. It fit even the largest pop bottle we used.

    I used to use a baby bottle warmer. I also microwaved water and then heated up the bottles in the microwaved water.

    What do you use now? Why did you change from a warmer? Was it not big enough?

    My water heater is set at 150*F. Hot water! I put 6 bottles in 2-1/2 gal. bucket. By the time I'm ready to feed the little bottle monsters, the water is up to temp. You can fill the bucket with your hot water and full bottles, then dump they water out after it starts to cool and fill with hot water again. It should be the right temp.

    I am very curious, how will you feed 2 at a time? Pull them out and feed? If you are feeding that many, why don't you get or make a "lamb bar". Or nipple bucket? You can feed 10 at a time. Caprine Supply sells reasonable ones.

    It was more convenient for me to use the microwave heated water. But heating water for a bucket would heat more bottles at a time. You will find only heating a couple at a time will be too time consuming. I never had more than one or two bottle babies.
