It's hard to believe but my new baby is almost 5 months old! I took full advantage of our snuggle-time all summer while the big boys were in camp and commitments were minimal. Now that it's fall and we're back to our regularly scheduled programming with sports and music and carpool, I'm starting to introduce bottles into the baby's feeding routine. Changes are always a bit scary but if I've learned anything the first two times around, it's that finding the right products for you and your baby can make all the difference and ease a lot of stress.
Feeding is always a particularly fraught area of concern for me because it obviously impacts the children's overall health but also their sleeping patterns. I was recently introduced to Munchkin LATCH BPA-Free Baby Bottles that have a patent-pending combination of ultra-flexible nipple and anti-colic valve designed to promote healthy feeding and sleeping.
I was immediately drawn to Munckin's modern, colorful packaging and excited to test out LATCH bottles with my own baby. What makes LATCH bottles unique to others that I've reviewed, is the natural movement of the nipple. Studies show that 25-35% of newborns may develop colic or reflux resulting in difficulty establishing sleep patterns. LATCH is recommended by feeding and sleep experts to promote a healthy feeding and sleep cycle.* The nipple can rotate, flex, and stretch with baby's movement to maintain the latch, thus reducing gas and colic. The one-way, anti-colic valve also prevents air bubbles from traveling through breast milk or formula.
We love the look and feel of Munchkin LATCH bottles. The super soft nipple resembles the real thing and the movement is the most flexible I've experienced. Bonus that LATCH bottles are lightweight and easy to clean.
We're still getting there on the sleep thing but I think we're headed in the right direction!
