Even when you are a breastfeeding mum, there must be times that you’ll need milk bottles. So, choosing the right ones for your child is a little tricky and situational.
This post, we aim to save you money from buying the wrong ones since we tried a few brands on different occasions with my son, Vuthisith. Thus, we can conclude and tell you the right option based on your needs.
As a new parent myself, I have let my son used a lot of milk bottles from different brands including NUK, Pigeon, Avent Phillips, Comotomo and MAM.
Why did I do that? Because since I still need to change every 6 months, why not try a different brand? There are consequences when I keep on trying differennt models and brands like that. So, you don’t have to follow.
In this post, I do not compare the size of milk bottles, but solely focus on brand comparisons. So, let’s begin with each brand as below:
This milk bottle is the top brand among the others because the most important, the latch was made with orthodontic in mind. The latch’s shape is a copy of baby lip’s shape, it helps when our child is 7 or 8 months when their teeth grow. For other brands, the latch is round and thus, it might affect teeth’s shape.
Also, the bottle itself is a hard substance, so baby can still feed both day and sleeping time. Unlike Cocotomo, its bottle is soft. So, when our baby is sleeping, if they squeeze the bottle, the milk will come out all over the baby’s face.
There is a separatable bottom which functions to manage ventilation inside the bottle. So, it is believed to be able to keep the quality of milk longer than other bottles.
The latch flows milk is just right for baby. Without baby’s lips pressuring the latch, milk won’t flow out even when it is placed upside down. And playing with milk bottle is what our baby does when they grow older, they shake to whatever positions when they are full. So, it is important to choose a milk bottle that has hard bottle body and a latch that does not flow easily. So, MAM is the best brand I would like to recommend.
