The Mommy Files: The Overwhelming Choice of the Baby Bottle
I went ten years between needing to use bottles.
Now, don’t get me wrong. I love all of these bottles. But then I walked into the daycare about a week ago and saw little baby Simon sitting in his carseat, slurping away … but not holding a bottle.
I immediately inquired. Because in my head I was thinking, “Now THAT’S convenient!” Apparently the Podee feeding system has been around forever. Or at least for the last five years because the our daycare provider said she had used the feeding system with both of her kids.
Now, some of the Amazon reviews are from parents who mentioned that they would use these at night and just put them in the crib with their kiddos. I’m not sure I would do that, but that’s just me. I think I’d be worried about the baby choking.
But anyway, that’s neither here nor there; I still think this would be a great device for things like stroller rides or when you’re out grocery shopping.
The Ba Baby Bottle holder is yet another device I’m fascinated with. Its design is so simple, yet so effective. It seemingly works with any bottle and is designed to let your baby hold its own bottle. I’m thinking I might try this with Finn when he gets a bit older.
To start though, I think I’m going to same route as I did with L; Nuby and Tommee Tippee.
What bottles did you use? And since I’m going to be nursing as well, I’m particularly interested in what bottles you found best when you were supplementing or when someone else was doing the feeding.
