Choosing The Right Baby Bottle

It is vital to choose the right baby bottle for you and your baby. There are many different styles to choose from. There is also a vast selection of colors, different material and nipple shapes. The choice of bottle size is determined on the amount of feeds your baby is going to take. To choose the right bottle material, you must think if you are going to serve breast milk or formula milk. You must keep in mind that the selection of a good bottle is of utmost importance so your baby would not suffer from stomach upsets, gas pain and other related problems associated with bottle feeding.

The nipple size and style is important especially if you are breastfeeding as well. Moms will normally pump during the night while their baby sleeps to get their milk reserves up. During the day if mom needs a break from breastfeeding she can give her baby the bottle. The nipple size and style of the bottle needs to be approximately the same size of the mother’s nipple. If these are relatively the same size it will reduce what is called nipple confusion.

If you opt to bottle feed your baby, it is of immense importance to buy a baby bottle warmer. Baby bottle warmers can be placed in any room and you can quickly warm up bottles of milk.  This is a fast and safe way to warm bottles as to  quickly satisfy your crying baby.  Before you purchase one, you must check that it’s design fits the bottles you are using.

Dr. Brown Bottle is one of the best choices you can opt for when you think of buying the right bottle to feed your precious baby.  A University study showed how Dr. Brown’s bottles help to preserve essential vitamins like vitamins C, A and E.  This is of utmost importance for the health and growth of your infant. Its fully-vented system creates no air bubbles.  Thus it reduces colic, spit-up, burping and gas. These bottles are also free of Bisphenol-A (BPA), PVC, lead and phthalates.  This bottle design is sure to have lots of healthy benefits for your baby.

Choosing an Avent Bottle is another really good choice you can do.  Avent’s bottle system works well for mothers who decide to breastfeed and even for mothers who choose to give their babies formula milk. Its wide silicone nipple designed to mimic a mother’s breast are the perfect choice for those mothers who give their infants both breast and formula milk.  You can find a variety of nipple sizes based on age. It also has an air flow system that helps to prevent gas pain.

A good quality diaper bag is also essential to carry all the things needed to take care of your baby. My baby diaper bag has special storage places especially for baby bottles. They normally have elastic at the top to keep the bottle upright.  There are many fashionable designs and a wide range of prices for you to choose from.  There are designer bags for the use of both Mom and Dad.
