We spoke to these real parent testers to get their review...
How did this product make your life easier?
Michele: The Perfect Prep Day & Night is great if you have an impatient baby like mine as it is so quick to make up a bottle. I especially appreciate this in the middle of the night when she is screaming and I am trying to prevent her from waking the other children up! Night feeds have definitely become easier and less stressful since I've used this product. It is so easy to use and I love that the step-by-step instructions are shown on the display, so there is no chance of doing anything wrong.
Katie: This has to be the best invention ever made. It makes making a bottle so easy and stress free for both the parents and the baby. It is so quick and very easy to use with no need to wait around for the milk to cool down. This is especially great when a baby has such an unpredictable feeding regime. It measures out the correct amount of fluid needed for the specific number of oz's.
Hannah: This product makes my life so much easier. It’s one of the first things I would recommend to any mum who is bottle feeding. It is a life saver! Especially at the beginning when the baby hasn’t quite got into a routine and is feeding on demand, to know that the milk can be made within minutes is so reassuring. The two lights are also a great feature for the night feeds. I could easily see where to put the bottle and how much water I had left without having to turn the kitchen light on and wake myself and the baby up!
Would you recommend this to other parents?
Jane: I would recommend the Perfect Prep Day & Night to a fellow mum because it takes all of the hassle out of making a bottle, I can’t even tell you how many bottles I’ve had to dump out half asleep in the night or while my other child has my attention because I’ve lost count! I know fellow mums will feel me on this.
Tanya: Simply for the ease! It is perfect for night feeds because the screen and water tank are backlit so you can use it easily in the dark when you don't want to wake the whole house up. There's nothing worse than waiting for boiling water to cool when your baby is screaming for a feed so the fact the prep machine makes it the perfect temperature is a life saver.
Laura: I would recommend this product to any new mum who is going to formula or combine feed. This product enables you to make a bottle at the perfect temperature within minutes for your baby. My baby didn’t give off many ‘hungry cues’ and went from placid to crying with hunger In seconds therefore this product saved us as we were able to make him a bottle within minutes at the perfect temperature.
Would you choose this product above all others on the market?
Elena: Yes I would. I don’t think this product compares to anything else really. I haven’t seen another product which I have been tempted to get in replacement. I haven’t had a need to look elsewhere either as the perfect prep has provided everything needed and my baby has been happy using it. Perfect prep is definitely a winner for me
Louise: I would choose this product because the design is sleek, it's extremely easy to use, it makes my life easier as a mum and it is really a 'couldn't live without' product. This product should definitely win in its category as it really is a life saver with bottle feeding. It makes the bottles to the correct temperature each time so quickly, and has saved my little boy from waiting for his bottle to cool down and becoming upset.
Michele: I would choose this product because of how easy it is to use and how quick it makes a feed. The instructions are clearly set out on the display and you literally can't go wrong with it. I'm not terribly familiar with other similar products on the market but I know this product has made my life a lot easier than it was with my other children when I had to wait for bottles to warm and then cool down.
What changes would you make to this product?
Hannah: I would add a setting to this product that removes the instructions on the display screen. I found it frustrating to push the button after each instruction, as I knew what I was doing so didn’t need the instruction and found when I was in a rush sometimes I would forget to press the button to goto the next step or press the button too many times! It’s great for people who might be babysitting who don’t know how to use the prep machine but when you use it every day I did find it slightly annoying.
Tanya: The main thing that I struggled with was when we were using anti reflux milk, the powder ended up in a big lump in the bottle and didn't mix in properly. We ended up having to add the powder in after the water which defeats the purpose due to the hot shot for killing bacteria. Once we switched to a regular formula it was a dream.
Jane: The Perfect Prep Day & Night is a great product in its own right. I just wish there was a way of having instant bottles that are also filling the safe bottle guidelines, perhaps a fast cooling system and the bottles being made at a bacteria killing temperature however I don’t know that that would be possible.
