When Lily came into the world three years ago, Zach and I thought we had it easy. Lily was such a champ at eating and when I say eating, I mean like chugging her entire 8 oz bottle in about 15 minutes without spitting it up! We were so proud of our good eater but then we realized she’d become extremely gassy, grunting all night long and agitated. There had to be a simpler way for her to become more comfortable but we weren’t sure what it could be. With our little boy arriving in a few weeks, I knew that I wanted to find something that would hopefully help him if he went down the same path as his sister.
For those who are breast pumping I have such an easy way to keep you and your little one staying as comfortable as can be because I use Playtex Baby™ Nurser with Drop-Ins® Liners. Never heard of them? Well, the best thing about these liners is that it’s closer to breastfeeding with easy-to-dispose liners for our extra convenience. These pre-sterilized liners gently collapse like your breast as your baby feeds. Your baby sucks and swallows in a coordinated rhythm that mimics natural breastfeeding, so your baby is able to breathe more naturally during feeding time. I purchased the Playtex Baby Nurser in a 4 oz which comes in a pack of 3 plus their 4 oz drop-in liners that have 100 liners! And did you know that The Nurser was a “Mom’s Best Pick of 2017” finalist in the Baby Center Awards? It’s a great distinction because the Baby Center awards are determined by votes of moms on Baby Center so you know they are all mother approved! Woo!
I’m so happy I found these bottles at my local Babies “R” Us while creating our registry for our little guy. For all you first time Mom’s out there creating your registries, I encourage you to add these too. In fact, right now they are having a Registry 101 and Completion event offered nation wide. The Registry 101 event is targeted towards prenatal moms who are setting up registries or just exploring the process. It’s the 1st Saturday of every month and you are able to have an expert help guide you through the process. The Completion Event is the 3rd Tuesday of the month and it’s to help close out your registry after you’ve had your little one. The best part? Babies “R” Us offers a completion discount for all items on your registry that haven’t purchased!
These bottles keep my baby from not being super gassy but instead calm and comfortable. Unsure of how to use one? Here’s how!
Step 1: Warm Up Your Breast Milk– Heat up water in a microwave safe bowl and then put in the milk liner to warm it up.
Step 2: Insert the Bag – Insert the bag into the bottle. Slowly pull the edges down at the bottom of the bottle to make sure it’s as even as possible. This will help remove a lot of the air which is what you want to make your baby comfortable.
Step 3: Screw on the Nipple – Screw on the top part with the NaturaLatch® Nipple. This will hold the liner in place. It has a natural wide shape and raised texture to help your baby latch on naturally. Now just feed your baby like you always do with the peace of mind that you save yourself some cash and save them from some evil bacteria! Way to go Mom!
We all want to do what’s best for our little ones, and these bottles are the best for breast feeding babies! What are you waiting for? Add them to your registry today!
