Feeding bottles are every new mum’s close companion. They are breastfeeding’s twin sister who underwent plastic surgery. Doesn’t mean she isn’t important. Feeding bottles come in handy when the mum needs a feeding break, she wants to discard postpartum clothes, or she’s taking medication which might pass on to her baby.
Examples of feeding bottles include the Tomme Tippee bottle. It has a natural, breast-like teat that guarantees 92% latch acceptance. It is ergonomically shaped and compatible with all the teats in the Closer to Nature range, except the Ultra and Advanced Anti-Colic nipples.
The Advanced Anti-Colic bottle is Tomme Tippee’s premium range of feeding bottles. It features a venting mechanism that pulls air away from the milk, reducing reflux and wind. The venting tube has a heat-sensing strip that turns pink if the feed is too hot.
The Phillips Avent bottle brings superior quality to the feeding bottles battle. It features:
- Ultra-soft nipples
- Ergonomic shape
- Anti-colic system
Variations to the range include the Avent Glass bottle which has the features of the Avent bottle as well as being resistant to temperature changes. The Avent anti-colic bottle keeps air out, while the teat stays full of milk even when horizontal, making it possible to feed the baby in a natural upright position
Dr Browns glass bottle features vacuum-free technology to ease suckling. Its anti-oxidation properties help retain the milk’s nutrients. The mechanism decreases gas, burping, and spit-up. A variation is the Sippy Cup bottles range which has narrow necks, cap and thimble, and no BPA. The result is a slop-free design meaning everyone keeps their clothes clean.
