I breastfed my youngest Ava until she self-weaned just like I did with my first, Keira. Keira was happy with whatever bottle and nipple and wasn’t too fussy if she got expressed breast milk or “right from the tap”. Ava on the other hand was very fussy about expressed milk and the bottle and nipple used. She was also constantly spitting up, it was a wonder she gained any weight!
One of my friends recommended trying out the Playtex® Nurser with Drop-Ins® Liners with Ava. I’d actually heard of them when Keira was a baby but since she was happy with the bottles that came with the breast pump I didn’t bother to explore other options.
The 4 oz Nurser Bottle is designed so you can feed baby from a semi-upright position which is supposed to help prevent ear infections. It did end up being a really great option for us when we did need to feed Ava from a bottle.
The design actually helps to reduce discomfort and gassy tummies as the liner gently collapses to prevent air from mixing with the milk and getting into baby’s tummy. This of course did help a little with her spitting up too!
The Playtex® Nurser with Drop-Ins® Liners was also designed to help baby feed in a way that mimics breastfeeding and I did find that Ava was a lot less fussy with the nurser bottles. Plus there is a wide variety of Playtex nipples to choose from so you can find one that works well with your own baby.
To be honest though, what I loved most is that the liners are disposable and made for such an easy clean up!
Ava hasn’t had a bottle since she was 8 months old and decided drinking from a cup like her big sister was the way to go but she was quick to grab the 8oz Playtex® Nurser with Drop-Ins® Liners when I filled it up with some homo milk.
She was able to easily drink from the bottle herself and wouldn’t give it up until she emptied it. I guess that means she still likes the Nurser bottles.
Preparing the bottle for her brought back some memories too – like how easy they are to prep. Drop in the liner, fill it up, screw on the nipple and go. Couldn’t be any easier than that!
