You’ve got milk. Now you just have to figure out how to tote it on the go. Safely transporting and storing pumped breast milk is one of the conundrums of parenting. But two new products are here to help. One warms up milk in a flash (and keeps it warm). The other is a magic pouch system that does it all (even the feeding!). Read on for the scoop.

Mama’s Milk Warmer
You can thank aerospace and mechanical engineers for desigining this new genius milk warmer. And thank Ami Striker, while you’re at it. The working mom noticed a lack of products on the market that warm refrigerated or frozen breast milk and decided to take matters into her own hands. She created the only non-electric warmer designed to warm pumped breast milk in a safe, simple and quick way. The Mama’s Milk Warmer by Nutto is made of FDA-approved, insulated stainless-steel and fits all shape and size bottles, bags and other containers used to store pumped breast milk. Because it simply uses the heat from your tap water, there are no cords, batteries or tricky measuring requirements to battle. $29.99 at buybuybaby.com.
