Warming of refrigerated breastmilk

Hi all, how do you warm refrigerated breastmilk safely such that it retain its nutrients? Is it safe to use bottle warmer such as Avent? Bottle warmer seems to heat up very fast..i am concern it will overheat the milk.

Bottle warmers/a bowl of hot water are some ways to warm the milk. Philips Avent’s one has no timer, hence it runs the risk of overheating, especially at the higher settings. Some other brands have timers. The benefit of Philips Avent is that at the highest setting, the milk from the fridge can probably be heated up within 1-2 minutes.
