The bottles look like regular bottles but the have a little something inside, it looks like a valve and then a straw that goes down into the bottle. The idea is that this eliminates the vacuum suction which regular bottles have. This decreases the amount of air that baby is ingesting and therefore reduces gas and colic.
I thought it was worth a go and gave the wide mouth bottle a try. To start I love the wide mouth of the bottle! DS3 still takes a bottle for nap and bed time with milk and it is a big pet peeve of mine when milk gets spilled all over the counter cause I miss the bottle whoops! I also love that there are 4 stages of nipples so I can customized the bottle to the different stages that my children are at. I am all about finding ways to reduce my budget and space used so being able to use one product for two children is a bonus!! I was also super excited to learn that the Dr.Brown's bottles are proven to help preserve the nutrients in breast milk! This is so great!! I was always worried that my milk would change when it was sitting in a bottle, now I can be rest assured that my baby is getting as much natural nutrients as possible and I can still have a break!
Another Dr.Brown product that has caught my attention is their pacifiers. There is a little channel where the plastic dips in the tip of the nipple. I have never seen this feature before so I had to check it out and found it was to help minimize the pressure in a baby's mouth and they were developed by a pediatric dentist. I am very curious to see how the boys like them!
