Preserving BreastMilk - Benefits of a Thermapen
According to experts, overheating breast milk can reduce its benefits.
However if you use a digital food thermometer, such as a SuperFast ThermapenÂ®, it can help you to ensure that breast milk is gently warmed to just the right temperature.
Founder and Manager of the Human Milk Bank at Chester Lynda Coulter MBE said, âNew parents are told that breast milk must be stored carefully in the fridge.
âHowever, when re-warming human milk from the fridge for a baby's feed it is important not to overheat the milk; as this is very damaging to the delicate balance of nutrients contained within it.â
Lynda continued, âThe Thermapen is an accurate tool that will help you to measure the temperature of warmed milk, which should only reach body temperature of 37Â°C.
âThis would then be the same temperature that the milk is during breastfeeding.â
Simple to use, the Thermapen has an easy to read digital display that gives an accurate temperature reading in under three seconds.
Available in a range of 10 exciting colours, including pink and blue, it is a must-have for parents who want to heat their little one's food and milk safely.
Convenient with a foldaway probe, it's perfect for parents on the go, fitting neatly into a handbag or carry-all*.
It's ideal for checking that your heating instructions have been properly followed out in restaurants and cafes or to ensure that your toddler's babycino is not scalding hot.
Hygienic to use, its practical water resistant casing contains âBiomaster' to reduce bacterial growth and is washable.
The Thermapen costs Â£57.60 and is available from www.thermapen.co.uk
*Thermapen sells protective pouches suitable for using the Thermapen on the go.
