Q:

What are the best types of baby bottles to use for breastfed babies?

Hi there,

I recently became a new mother and I have been exclusively breastfeeding my baby. However, due to personal reasons, I may soon need to start using baby bottles to feed my little one. I want to make sure that my baby doesn't face any challenges while transitioning from breastfeeding to bottle-feeding.

Can anyone recommend the best types of baby bottles to use for breastfed babies? I have heard of some fancy brands with different types of nipples available. Are there any specific materials that I should look for/avoid? Any recommendations would be greatly appreciated!

Thank you!

Hi everyone,

As a mother who had to switch to bottle-feeding after exclusively breastfeeding, I can confidently recommend Dr. Brown's Natural Flow bottles. These bottles have a unique vent system that prevents air from getting into your baby's stomach while they are feeding, which can reduce discomfort, gas, and fussiness.

The nipples are also designed to feel similar to a breast, and they come in different flow rates so you can adjust to your baby's needs as they grow and develop.

Dr. Brown's bottles are also made with BPA-free materials making them safe for your baby. These bottles can sometimes seem complicated to clean but investing in a good bottle brush will make it a lot easier.

Overall, I found these bottles to be a game-changer for my baby's feeding experience. They are worth a try if you're looking for a bottle that reduces colic and helps with air flow.

Hi there,

As a mother of two, I can definitely recommend the MAM Anti-Colic bottles. These bottles come with a unique vented base that prevents air bubbles from being taken in while feeding, effectively reducing the risk of colic and fussiness in babies.

The nipples are designed to feel soft and like the natural flow of breastfeeding, which can make the transition to bottle-feeding more comfortable for babies. They also have a wide base, making it easier for baby to latch on.

A great feature of the MAM bottles is that they come with a self-sterilizing feature allowing you to sterilize the bottles in the microwave in just a few minutes without the need for separate sterilizers or boiling them in a pot. This feature made it super convenient during travels and while on the go.

Overall, I've been very happy with MAM bottles and how much it reduced the discomfort and fussiness in both of my babies. It's worth giving them a try.

Hi everyone,

I had a great experience using the Mam Easy Start Anti-Colic bottles with my baby. The nipple design of these bottles closely resembles a real breast. This was invaluable in helping my baby to make a smooth transition from breastfeeding to bottle-feeding.

Besides the unique nipple design, these bottles come with an anti-colic vented base, which makes them easy to use and helps to prevent gas and colic, making it comfortable for my baby while feeding. Additionally, they come with a sealing disk that makes them convenient during travels as it prevents any leaks.

Cleaning these bottles is just as easy as assembling them, and they sterilize well, which is essential for any parent who is concerned about hygiene.

The Mam Easy Start Anti-Colic bottles come in different sizes and flow rates, which allows for adjustments as your baby grows and develops, ensuring that it is fed with the best nutrition, helping in its development.

In conclusion, I highly recommend Mam Easy Start Anti-Colic bottles to any parent looking for an easy to use and sterilize bottle with a unique nipple design. The vented base system ensures a smooth feeding experience while preventing colic and gas buildup.

Hello everyone,

I am a new mom who was in a similar situation and I can suggest the Tommee Tippee Closer to Nature bottles. These bottles have a unique nipple design that is similar in shape, feel, and flexibility to a real breast, making it easy for your baby to latch on.

These bottles are made with a wide-neck design and are easy to hold or grip making it easy to feed your baby. They are also easy to clean, making them convenient during travels and busy schedules.

Additionally, these bottles have an anti-colic valve that helps prevent air from getting into your baby's tummy and reducing the risk of colic. They come in different sizes and flow rates to adjust to your baby's needs as they grow.

These bottles have been a great help for me in transitioning my baby from breast to bottle. I highly recommend giving them a try!

Hello everyone,

As a mother who had challenges while transitioning my baby from exclusively breastfeeding to bottle-feeding, I found the Lansinoh mOmma Bottles to be a great help. These bottles have a wide, soft, and textured nipple, a feature that helped my baby latch on easily.

The air vent in the nipple ensures a consistent flow of milk to reduce air intake, thereby preventing gas and colic. The lids that come with these bottles make them ideal for travel as they prevent any leaks and help ensure that the nipple stays clean.

Another great feature of the Lansinoh mOmma Bottles is that the bottles are compatible with the Lansinoh Smart Pump, which made it easier to pump milk directly into the bottles instead of transferring the milk from one container to the other.

These bottles are also BPA, BPS, and phthalate-free, making them safe for your baby. Cleaning these bottles is also easy, and I loved how the wide-neck design made it easier to clean and sterilize them.

Overall, I highly recommend the Lansinoh mOmma Bottles for any mom looking for an easy transition from breast to bottle. They are durable, easy to use, and they mimic the feel of a breast, making it easy for your baby to adapt to bottle-feeding.

Greetings,

I have used the Philips Avent Natural Glass baby bottles for my little one and I am delighted with the results. These bottles have a natural-shaped nipple that mimics the feel of a breast, making the transition from breastfeeding to bottle-feeding seamless.

What I love most about these bottles is that they are made of glass, which is environmentally friendly and safe for your baby as it doesn't contain any harmful chemicals. Unlike the plastic bottles, they are hygienic and non-toxic and are perfect for a parent who wants to avoid plastic.

Moreover, Philips Avent Natural Glass bottles have an anti-colic system that helps reduce colic by preventing air from getting into your baby's tummy. Also, they come in different sizes, and the nipples come with various flow rates we can choose from depend on our baby's development age.

The glass itself is easy to clean and sterilize, and it doesn't cloud or scratch quickly, making them long-lasting. Additionally, these bottles are easily interchangeable with other Philips Avent products such as a breast pump, making it easier to pump and store milk.

Overall, I highly recommend Philips Avent Natural Glass baby bottles due to their natural nipple design that mimics breastfeeding, eco-friendliness, and durability.

Hi there,

From my personal experience, I highly recommend using bottles with a nipple that closely resembles the shape and texture of a breast. This can help with a smooth transition for your baby. I have used the Comotomo baby bottles, which have a wide and soft nipple that mimics the shape and texture of a breast, making it easy for my baby to switch from breastfeeding to bottle-feeding.

This type of bottle is made with silicone material and is free from BPA, PVC, and Phthalates, making it safe and healthy for your baby. It's also easy to clean which is essential as hygiene is important when it comes to your baby's feeding.

Another option is the Philips Avent Natural Bottles, which have a wide breast-shaped nipple and an anti-colic valve to prevent air build-up, making it easier for your baby to digest and reducing the risk of colic.

Overall, I would suggest trying out a few different options to see which one works best for your baby's unique feeding needs, but I personally have had success with the Comotomo and Philips Avent Natural Bottles. I hope this helps!
