Babies who are breast milk fed may not always receive their milk directly from the breast. Mothers often employ the use of a breast pump and bottles to create a supply for their babies when nursing is not their first choice or when special circumstances make nursing difficult. Switching from breast to bottle may be confusing to babies, so finding the right bottle is important. We understand that the bottle aisle at your local baby superstore can be a little daunting. To make bottle selection easier, here is a list of 5 favorite bottles for breastfed babies.
5 Favorite Bottles for Breastfed Babies
- Playtex Premium Nurser Bottles with Drop In Liners (Cortney’s favorite)
With the Playtex Nurser and Premium Drop-Ins, your baby’s tummy will be happy. The BPA-free liners, designed to reduce colic symptoms, collapse as the milk leaves the drop in, preventing air from mixing with the milk. This convenient bottle makes feeding Baby and washing bottles easy. The Playtex NaturaLatch Silicone nipple is designed to require the baby to have a wide-open latch, similar to that of a breastfed baby for an easier transition when going between breast and bottle.
- Mimijumi Bottle
This bottle, which is designed to look similar to the breast, will limit any confusion caused from going from bottle to nipple. Your baby has control of how much milk flow received, further mimicking the natural latch created through breastfeeding.
- Comotomo Bottle
This Silicone bottle emulates the breast through its skin-like texture. Dishwasher and microwave safe, the Comotomo bottle is ideal for a busy mother.
- Yoomi Bottle
This self-warming bottle takes the need for a bottle warmer away from mothers who are bottle-feeding. By emulating the temperature of breast milk in just 60 seconds, this bottle maximizes the natural feel of breastfeeding.
- Dr. Brown’s Natural Flow Wide-Neck Baby Bottle
Doctor Brown’s Natural Flow Bottle will work to soothe a colicky baby by keeping air out of the milk. The wide neck of this bottle makes it easier for you to fill and encourages Baby to have a wide-open latch. This BPA-free, glass and silicone bottle is sure to make for one happy baby.
