Since Cole was born 5 weeks early most of his feedings involve a bottle of pumped breast milk. We have been trying to nurse more lately but to ensure he is getting enough milk each day we have been pretty attached to bottles. When he first started bottle feeding I noticed he was spitting up and even vomiting at times after eating, almost like it was too much milk too fast for him and the minutes even hours of feedings became quite a mess. So we tried tons of different bottles to try to reduce the spit up and found a few that helped and a ton that didn't help along the way. So, when I was asked to try out The First Years Breastflow Bottles I jumped at the chance... The starter set arrived and comes with two 5 oz. bottles with slow flow nipples, two 9 oz. bottles with medium flow nipples, 4 storage lids (LOVE), a container for formula or snacks, and a bottle brush. We tried them out for a few days and Cole did great with them! There was definitely less spit up and fussiness after feedings. So excited to find a bottle that works!
- Mimics the feel of breastfeeding
- Baby Controls the Flow - this seems to be key to less spit up
- Dishwasher Safe
- So many parts - any bottle with more than 2 parts is that much tougher to clean - means you have to dissemble and reassemble each feeding - can be time consuming.
'm still on the hunt for a 2 piece bottle that reduces spit up - any suggestions are welcome
The First Years Breastflow Bottles are available on Amazon.
