Breastfeeding isn’t always something you can do for your little ones. Whether you’re on the go and you don’t feel comfortable breastfeeding in public, you need your partner to take over feeding the baby while you get some personal time, or maybe you’re having a problem lactating, but you have frozen milk put to the side, that’s where a baby bottle comes in.
However, once a baby is accustomed to a breast it can be difficult for babies to get used to a bottle nipple, or trying to switch back to a real nipple once they get used to the bottle. That’s where these specific baby bottles come in. Check out these bottles catered to primarily breastfed babies!
The Nanobébé baby bottle instantly grabs your attention with its shape, a pretty close replica to a breast. Not only that but it warms 2-3 times faster than other bottles, which causes the bottle to reduce bacterial growth and keeps nutrients that are usually destroyed by the warming process. The bottles also have an anti-slip bottom, triple venting system that prevents colic, and the shape also encourages self-feeding in babies at a younger age. They can be found at the Nanobébé website, Bed Bath & Beyond, buybuy BABY, Target, and Walmart.
The mimijumi baby bottles also have an eye-catching shape, the design resembling the angle of breastfeeding. It makes it the perfect companion to switch between breastfeeding and bottle feeding. As well as helping along the transition to purely bottle feeding. It features a ventilation system to prevent colic, designed for a guaranteed baby latch and control of milk flow and an anti-slip bottom. They can be found at the mimijumi website, Walmart, buybuy BABY, and Amazon.
The Comotomo baby bottle holds a simplistic yet perfect design, the bottle itself is made out of silicone material to mimic the feel of a mother’s breast against a child’s hands. The rounded top and nipple are designed to get rid of bottle rejection from the little one, so they’re great for transitioning or nursing and bottle feeding simultaneously. And of course, these bottles are anti-colic thanks to the dual vents. They can be found at the Comotomo website, Walmart, Target, Amazon, Nordstrom, and buybuy BABY.
NUK Simply Natural
The NUK Simply Natural design is excellent for breastfed babies because of the specially designed bottle nipple. It’s slightly curved to fit perfectly along the baby’s tongue, flexible, and it has multiple holes in the tip just like milk ducts in a woman’s breast. NUK even has different nipple designs with more or fewer holes depending on the age of the baby for different milk flow. A study was also done, and the anti-colic bottle was accepted by 93 percent of babies, so it’s definitely worth checking out. The bottles can be found at Target, buybuy BABY, Amazon, and Walmart.
The MAM baby bottles feature a less straight forward design in terms of looking suitable for breastfed babies. However, they apparently get the job done with 94 percent of babies accepting the bottle thanks to the silicone nipple that fits perfectly into the baby’s mouth and feels realistic. And the anti-colic ventilation system is different than the rest by placing the system in the base of the bottle instead of the top, regulating the milk flow without foam or bubbles. These bottles can be found at buybuy BABY, Target, Walmart, and Amazon.
