Let’s face it, breastfeeding mothers need a break too. But sometimes it’s nearly impossible if your baby won’t take a bottle. Even if it’s to take a long nap or togo get your hair cut! So after searching for something that would keep all the hard work I did to teach my baby to breast feed in place I discovered Tommee Tippee Closer to Nature bottles.
These are the only bottles that the nipples are shaped like a breast. Not only are they shaped like one they mimic the same motions a nipple would make. Tommee Tippee also has a sensitive tummy line for babies that spit up and are fussy like mine. They remind me of another popular baby bottle brand that has nearly the same technology.
How to prevent the nipple from collapsing – Vent
When I first started using these bottles I actually got really frustrated because I couldn’t figure out how to get the nipple to stop caving into the bottle. But a quick look on the website I discovered that the anti-colic easi-vent valve was not opening properly. Once I discovered that I made sure that it was open during each feeding and it worked great. To do this I just pushed a toothpick or cleaning pick (They sell them with bottle brushes now) through the easy-vent because the silicone sticks. This stopped the nipple from caving in for me!
- Awkward shape, have to buy special carriers and travel warmer
- Lowest Nipple Flow is still too fast for a Preemie
- Shaped like a breast making it easier to transiting back and forth
- Sensitive Tummy Option
I think the pros far outweigh the cons in this case because breastfeeding Mothers already have enough to worry about trying to get breastfeeding down with their little ones.
