When I had Krista almost 7 years ago, being a first-time mom, I remember being extremely overwhelmed by all the choices I had to make. From the diapers, to the stroller, car seat, even the type of diaper rash cream, and let’s not even talk about baby bottles. How do you know which to go with, there are just too many to choose from!
Honestly, I have tried a bunch of different ones with all my babies. People say you should go with the one that looks most like your breasts, I tried those. Other people told me I had to go with the ones that would give them less gas, I have tried lots of those! Some other ones just look cool and I must confess I have tried those too, but I always keep going back to the ones that have consistently work with all my three girls.
I first tried Dr. Browns Natural Flow bottles with my oldest daughter when she was just a week old. I had a difficult delivery and my milk supply had suffered from it and so I had to supplement very early on. I had to do it again with my second baby when, at two weeks old, they told me I had to supplement due to weight loss on her end. I was concerned with colic and nipple confusion but fortunately the internal vent system took care of that. I must say that that is my favorite feature from the bottles because it not only prevents colic but also burping and gas, which results in a happy baby and a happy mom! I know a few friends that have suffered from bad colic with their babies and I have always recommended they tried these bottles to help cope with this problem. I know that thankfully none of my babies suffered from that and I give credit to the use of Dr. Brown’s bottles.
Now with my third baby I knew what bottle to use if I had any issues. Fortunately, this time around I was able to exclusively breastfeed for the first few months of her life, but I eventually had to go back to work and I had to start using baby bottles again. At first I was just using the bottles that came with my breast pump but I started noticing lots of burping and lots of gas coming from my baby, so I knew exactly what I had to do. I once again picked up my Dr. Brown bottles. This time around I went with the wide neck bottles because the bottle is shaped in a way that is easier for baby Zixta to hold, now that she is a little older she can hold her own bottle while laying down or even sitting up which is a huge help for me as I have other two kids to look after.
Having multiple kids always has me always looking for products that can make my life easier and my time most effective and I must say that Dr. Brown is one of those. But most importantly it keeps my baby happy. And we all know that a happy baby results in a happy mommy and a happy life!
