There are always errands, social engagements, jobs, and family adventures to consider. That doesn’t stop you from getting hungry and it doesn’t stop your baby either. If your baby doesn’t like cold formula or you have frozen breast milk that needs warming. How would you do that while out and about or even traveling?
