I mentioned this new soap-dispenser brand to highlight the evolution of liquid dispenser technology. A review of available baby formula dispenser brands reveals limited improvement in technology as there are limited brands innovating new brands of formula dispensers.

Before reviewing our top picks, let’s first answer some basic questions on this topic;

What is a formula dispenser?

We can simply say a formula dispenser is an appliance that helps make a baby’s bottle. There are many different types, but most of them can easily be carried in the diaper bag whenever you are on the move so that your baby will have a ready bottle whenever they become hungry.

In essence, dispensers cut down the amount of time you need to measure, pour, and mix formula, making them convenient for preparing the baby’s bottle for nighttime feeds and while you are on the go.

How to use formula dispenser

Different dispenser brands have varying designs, but the most important thing is to get the right formula/ water balance. According to health experts, the diluted formula can cause nutrition deficiencies, and over-concentrated formulas can also cause serious problems for your baby, like dehydration. Therefore, always follow the manufacturer’s setup, cleaning, and settings instructions to ensure proper ratios and blending.

Also, when making a bottle, it’s advisable to add water to the bottle first and then the formula. This helps avoid clumping and ensures that you add the right amount of water. 

How does a formula dispenser work?

Formula dispensers don’t all work the same. Some are simply plastic containers that only enable you to measure out formula portions ahead of time so that you will only need to add it into your water and mix whenever your baby needs a bottle. Others are hi-tech all-in-one machines that do everything for you from measuring, mixing, and dispensing a well-blended bottle in seconds. Still, there are others that can even warm up the bottle to a precise and customized temperature.

How to pick the best formula dispenser – factors to consider;

When choosing a formula dispenser, here are some important factors to consider:

Type of dispenser: As mentioned earlier, there are mainly two types of baby formula dispensers – automatic and manually operated. Automated formula dispenser machines are much more convenient to use – with just the push of a button. They can measure the correct ratio of formula and water, mix, and dispense it into a bottle. However, these are expensive and cumbersome to carry along, so they are best suited to remain on your kitchen counter. On the other hand, manually operated formula dispensers are more lightweight, compact, and easier to pack and carry, but you will do the measuring and mixing yourself. So choose the one best suited to your needs and budget.

Capacity: This means; how much formula can the machine hold or make at once? The more the capacity, the more bottles you will have to last you a good while. 

Material: Good quality dispensers should be durable and have high heat resistance. In addition, they should also be BPA and chemical-free for your child’s safety.

Size: When choosing a suitable dispenser, you need to consider if you have enough space for it on your kitchen counter and storage space when not in use. A compact dispenser is best if you plan to use it during travel.

Ease of cleaning: Your baby formula dispenser needs to be cleaned regularly to prevent the build-up of grime and germs, which can make your baby sick. So consider one that is easy for you to clean. Some can be disassembled and thrown in the dishwasher safely, hence very easy to maintain.

Ease of use: Baby formula dispensers are designed to cut down on parents’ time and effort. So choose one with easy-to-follow instructions.
