I never thought I would be promoting a baby bottle. After all, bottles are not great baby stuff. They are bad baby stuff, and babies should not have to use them. Sometimes they are necessary though, and when I reluctantly started my own baby on the bottle, first of all he hated it because it was so different. He wouldn't even take expressed milk from the bottle until I found a nipple that sort of mimicked a real nipple, and we went from there. Read about how I finally got him to switch here. Many woman must use a bottle because their family or their sanity depends on them working also. It is difficult to continue breastfeeding while working, even with a great pump, because the bottle is so different and babies get confused and only want one or the other. Many people are unaware of how different a bottle is for a baby, but it was apparent to me right away and I wished for something that was more like the real thing. And now that I have found it I am ecstatic! I really want it to succeed and Bittylabs needs more help from us parents for that to happen.
The BARE Bottle was designed by Priska Diaz, a New York mom who didn't like the bottles she had to use to feed her baby, just like me. Apparently she is a bit of better designer and go getter than me, however, as she has designed and put together a campaign to get them in production and on the market! And I am happy to try to help her. The BARE Bottle has a nipple designed to work and feel like a real nipple, even stretching when baby sucks on it to release milk, negating any backwash from baby or the need to up-size the nipple holes as your baby grows. It works with a sort of plunger action, resembling a syringe, that moves as the baby empties the bottle, thus making sure he doesn't suck in any air, just like the real thing. This also means that baby does not have to lie down to drink! No more tipping over backwards for older babies when they are trying to sit or walk around and drink their bottle! Plus the bottle just looks awesome. Its an absolute must for any baby that has to use a bottle.
The BARE Bottle "is the first to market baby bottle that mimics mother’s breast entirely–not just the nipple– from shapes & texture to movement, storage and delivery of milk. It features 2 unique patented technologies to produce a truly breast-like nursing experience 100% air-free and without vents."
