Tales Of A Southern Mom was very pleased to be able to work with Bare Baby Bottles in reviewing their bottles which closely replicate a breast. These bottles are nice and I found that they had many great features.
One of the first things I noticed about these bottles is that the nipple is a bit inverted, so that when the baby latches on it is more like a breast latch and they have to pull the nipple out, very much, like when they nurse. I know that not all babies will respond to this, but it might help prevent some nipple confusion when a nursing mom has to use pumped milk.
I loved that the bottle has an air plug on the bottom to push out all of the air, unlike with some bottles that use those plastic bags, I have shoved all kinds of things in there to try to get the air out of those things. This feature is built in, does not take a bag and you just move all of the air out of the bottle out of the nipple and not into babe’s tummy.
These bottles do not have air vents. They have a philosophy that mom’s breasts do not have air vents and therefore bottles shouldn’t either. Makes sense to me. The bottle has a system when it all works together the baby can take the bottle in any position. I have read on quite a few breastfeeding sites that baby may want to take a bottle sitting up rather than in the cradle position that they normally nurse in.
Also, an upright feeding position allows baby to eat slower, prevents gorging, and consequently keeps baby’s stomach from stretching. This will help a breastfeeding mom who has to pump keep up her supply to meet baby’s needs. Bare Bottles allow that to happen.
Very neutral but bright aqua color and a travel/leak proof lid make this a wonderful choice for those looking for the ever-elusive bottle that is more like feeding from the breast.
