This my very first review & giveaway all in one! I will have many more posted throughout the week to get this blog up and running! So hang in there.
My first baby, our daughter Kannon, was born on Dec 26th, 2009. After numerous attempts to breastfeed, I failed miserably. So I was forced to bottle feed. A good friend of our family turned us onto Dr. Browns Baby Bottles. Kannon was one of those children that would drink her milk as fast as possible and end up being miserable in the end. The Dr. Browns bottles were designed with a vent system that eliminated the vacuum, air bubbles and negative pressure associated with conventional bottle feeding, and to this day is the only bottle of it's kind.
After we started using them we noticed a considerable drop in air intake and spit up. The company also sells nipples to go along with the growth of your baby. We have so far used Level N Level 2. Mostly 2's for those super sleepy times to keep her awake to finish her bottles.
We ended up loving the bottles so much we bought about 10 more. They are easy to take apart and easy to assemble in even the most trying moments. After we noticed our daughter was eating more than the 4oz bottles allowed, we went out to find that they also sold bigger bottles in 8oz. What a delight.
I have to say the only down side we have had thus far is traveling with the 4oz bottles. If we plan a short trip and don't feel like bringing a jug of water we fill the bottles and carry the formula in a separate container, but the bottles always seem to slowly leak out the top, even with the cap on. So we have switch over to all 8oz bottles. They come with a flat circular lid that goes on top of the bottle before the nipple and lid. It has been our lifesaver for water on the go. Especially for those long road trips to see the family!
All in all, I have tried numerous bottles of every kind and I can say that if I am ever asked what saved me with my first child, it was Dr. Browns Baby Bottles. They work miracles and make life a little simpler, and if you are a stay at home mom you should know, anything to make the day a little less complicated is worth a shot.
