My first question when I saw this was, what took them so long? Why hasn't it been done already? I mean really. And my second question was, how come they don't have enough funding pledged to make this work? There are 13 days left and 17% of the funding they need pledged!
What is it that I am so excited about? A bottle designed by a mom that replicates the action and feel of the real thing, but is a bottle. Its shape feels natural for baby, the nipple works like ours do, and it has no air vents or bubbles, working with a type of plunger action to continually feed baby without the need to refill itself with air as it empties. Your kid could eat with the bottle bottom pointing down if they so desired, just like a real breast. For people that have to supplement, this would be an especially great product, because nipple confusion could be eliminated. Even if you never plan on breastfeeding, this bottle would be the best alternative, because it still works like a real breast and takes away all the problems a typical bottle can cause like colic, gas, and spitting up. Its just such a great idea I can't say enough about it!
