The Baby Brezza Formula Pro has been designed in the same manner as coffee machines work with pods. The Formula Pro has a dispenser on the top where you put the baby’s formula
. The formula cup has a max fill line of 700 grams of powdered formula. 700 grams is the equivalent to twenty eight ounce bottles
of formula. You will also notice on the formula cup that there is also a min fill line. When your formula hits that line, you will need to refill the formula so that the Baby Brezza can mix your formula properly without there being too little formula and too much water in the mixture. On the side of the Baby Brezza Formula Pro is a water reservoir where you can fill up to as much as fifty ounces of water. There is also a max fill and min fill line on the reservoir just like the formula cup to ensure that you don’t overflow the machine or mix the bottle with too much formula and too little water. The top display of the Baby Brezza Formula Pro has a line of buttons and images. The image to the far left is the temperature gauge. When that light is lit green it means that the water temperature is exactly where it needs to be to start mixing the formula. The Baby Brezza heats the water to 98 degrees making the temperature of the formula optimal for your baby allowing them to eat comfortably.
The next line of buttons is the amount of formula you want to generate. The Formula Pro mixes formula in two-ounce increments from two ounces up to ten ounces. Some parents have disliked that the machine only mixes formula in even increments because as their babies grew and they needed more formula during feedings, their babies were eating at odd increments of three ounces or five ounces. As a result, an extra ounce of formula
needed to be made and that extra ounce would eventually get wasted because the baby did not need to consume that extra ounce.
Finally, on the far right side of the display are the start and stop buttons for starting the formula mixing or stopping it from mixing. There is also a cleaning indicator light that allows you to know when it’s time to clean the machine.
The Baby Brezza Formula Pro comes with A LOT of parts. Upon opening the box you will find that there is a lot to assemble. The machine itself comes as one piece. What you can add to the machine immediately is the water
reservoir and the formula cup. The base that the bottle sits on is easily attached as is the funnel. What can get complicated is putting together the rotating mechanisms inside of the formula cup that have to be placed inside the cup
properly in order for them to turn and drop the correct amount of formula into the bottle with the water. It is recommended that you read the directions thoroughly in order to assemble the machine properly. There have been some negative reviews of this product online, and in most instances, it was because the directions were not properly followed. Every question you may have about the Baby Brezza Formula Pro has an answer inside of the instruction manual. Follow the directions and you won’t miss a single point as far as assembling and setting the machine to your exact needs.
Setting the Machine To Your Formula
On the back of the instruction manual for the Baby Brezza Formula Pro comes a chart. On this chart is a list of almost every possible formula sold on the market today. It should be noted that some formulas, although they are popular, are not compatible with the Baby Brezza Formula Pro. Before purchasing the Baby Brezza, check on their site to make sure that your formula of choice is compatible with the machine.
When you are looking at the formula chart for the Baby Brezza you will notice that every formula is given a numerical value. Find the formula that you are using and find the numeric value given to that formula. Once you have that number, the gears that go inside of the formula cup have a number line engraved into them. What you will do is place the twist lock over the dial with the engraved numbers and lock the twist-lock into place over the corresponding number. What this does is allow the machine to dispense the proper amount of formula into the baby’s bottle
so that when the water mixes in, there will be the perfect combination of formula and water.
All of this sounds confusing without having the instruction manual in front of you, but when you read the directions, it is quite easy and foolproof. When the numbers are correct with the amount of ounces you want to mix, the bottle will come out at the proper temperature
and there will be little to no air bubbles.
One of the most important aspects of the Baby Brezza Formula Pro is cleaning the machine daily and weekly. This has also proven to be a huge con for many parents, however, almost all have agreed that keeping the machine clean is not that difficult and takes only a few minutes at most. One of the reasons that the Baby Brezza needs to be cleaned daily is because like with any powdery substance, the formula cakes onto the spout and funnel. This simply happens by nature and there is nothing that can be done about it. It is suggested that at the end of the day after your baby’s last feeding before bedtime, you take the funnel off and rinse it under warm water to get away the excess formula that did not make it into the bottle. It is also recommended that you take a small toothpick and scrape away at the opening to the funnel as well to get off any residue that may have collected there from the feedings throughout the day.
Once a week, it is recommended that you take apart the formula cup and clean all of the parts. The best way to clean the parts is to run them under warm water with some soap and wash them by hand. Although they can most likely be placed inside of a dishwasher, the risk of the parts getting damaged is greater than if you wash them by hand. Once you have them washed, dry them right away with a clean dry cloth and you can then replace the parts immediately. This only takes a few minutes.
It is also suggested that you periodically rinse out the water reservoir as the mechanism can gather germs because of the standing water. It has to be noted and understood that if you detach the water reservoir from the machine to clean it in the sink, the bottom of the reservoir cannot get wet as it will cause the part to malfunction, so make sure the sink is clean and clear from other dishes
and parts and place the reservoir on the countertop and wash it by hand. Be careful when rinsing out the reservoir that you do not get water on the underside of the container damaging the product. Always keep the Baby Brezza Formula Pro as clean as possible as whatever is in the machine will go inside of your baby’s food
On the top of the Baby Brezza Formula Pro is a line of buttons that allow you to select the amount of ounces you want to make your baby’s bottle. The ounces run in even increments of two. The first setting is two ounces and it makes up to ten ounces of formula. As your baby begins to grow and require more food
, you can set the Baby Brezza to your desired amount. One of the complaints that many parents have expressed is that their baby requires an odd amount of formula, i.e., three ounces or five ounces. As a result, many parents have to make a higher number of ounces for their bottle and those extra ounces went to waste because it was too much food for the baby. It is up to the parent to use their discretion as far as how much food to make for their child. It may only seem like an ounce and it may seem that one ounce is not that much, but over the course of several months it all adds up, so be as cautious as possible when mixing the formula for your child. The Baby Brezza is also compatible with all bottles regardless of neck size or width. Although not every formula
is compatible with the machine, it appears as if all bottle brands fit with the Baby Brezza.
The Baby Brezza Formula Pro is expensive. It is one of the most expensive baby items on the market, however, it has been heralded and is regarded as one of the best investments a parent can make. If you have one child, the Baby Brezza is only good for about one year until your baby graduates to regular milk
, but if you plan on having more than one child who will also be using formula, then the Baby Brezza is an investment worth having. It does not fit into every parent’s budget, but for those who have been able to work it into their finances, the Baby Brezza has been called a life and a time saver for parents who are doing a lot of midnight feedings
and who want their baby’s bottle to come out perfect every time. Many parents have said it is worth the money for the convenience alone and is worth the consideration of buying regardless of what you can afford. It should be noted that there are similar products on the market that are more affordable, but the Baby Brezza Formula Pro is top-of-the-line and can’t be compared to other formula mixing machines.
The Baby Brezza Formula Pro is one of the most popular and sought after formula mixers being sold today. With the push of just one button, you can have a perfectly mixed formula bottle with no bubbles at the correct temperature every time. The machine saves time when doing feedings and guarantees that your baby will have the proper bottle whenever they are hungry
. Although it must be maintained regularly and comes with a long assembly process, the machine is worth the investment even though it is one of the highest priced products found in stores. If you can work the Baby Brezza Formula Pro into your budget, it is worth the purchase to save time and sanity when feeding your baby.
