An obstacle that many new and soon to be new parents come across is what kind of bottle they will use. This can be a issue, and I know personally that when it comes to making the choice on whether to bottle feed, breastfeed, or both, it is a decision that parents really do carefully consider. For me, I have always chosen to breastfeed my babies, but I also enjoy allowing others to bond with baby, giving me not only a break, but also giving my husband and other family members, the chance to get that bonding moment when feeding baby. So having bottles to use for breast milk, that also do not create issues with breastfeeding, is something I look for when preparing for baby.
Well, since we are making preparations for a new member to join our family, the hunt is on, to find those bottles which will not only make bottle feeding easy for baby, but also make the transition from bottle to breast and back easy on mom as well. To help with that search, I was sent such a bottle recently when I was sent the new Latch by Munchkin to review.
With the Latch bottles, babies will get the same experience as they get with the breast. Giving them that same suction that is needed with the breast, by having baby put pressure against the nipple, which releases the milk as baby nurses.
The nipple on the bottle also moves with baby, helping them keep that continuous latch, which helps with reducing colic. Another plus is, even with the breast milk being fed through a bottle, the Latch bottles, prevent any air bubbles traveling through the milk, which also helps to reduce gas and fussiness. Making the Latch bottles, a bottle to add to those lists of must have items for baby and those registries!
So as you prepare for baby, and as you look for bottles that will help with the transition from breast to bottle and back, be sure to check out the Latch Bottles from Munchkin!
