Have you seen the new Latch Bottles from Munchkin?
I received a package of bottles so that I can share my experiences with my readers. I haven't actually introduced Dominic to them just yet. I had nursing troubles with my daughter (I ended up exclusively pumping for her) so I want to be entirely sure that the breastfeeding is going fantastic before introducing any bottles. (No matter how awesome they might be!)
I still want to tell you all about these bottles though!
The bottles, with their unique accordion-style nipple, are specially designed to be similar to the breast -- which is super helpful for someone who wants to be able to nurse but also use a bottle. Further, they mimic the "pumping" action Baby uses while breastfeeding.
Another feature of the special nipples on these bottles help reduce the intake of air while feeding. This should help with colic and gas.
There are three stages of the nipples: Stage One is for newborns, Stage Two starts at three months, and Stage Three starts at six months.
Like most bottles you need to boil them before your first use. After that you just need hot soapy water or you can put them in a dishwasher! Now that I finally have a dishwasher I am a huge fan of anything that doesn't need hand-washing.
If you have any more questions, check out the Latch Bottle FAQs.
Starting May 1, 2014 you can purchase your own bottles from Target and other retailers.
