After our NICU stay with Aisla, I ended up taking home over 80 full bags of breast milk that I had pumped to build my supply and had no idea what to do with them. I didn’t want them to go to waste after all that hard work pumping every 2-3 hours, it is liquid gold after all.
Being a breastfeeding mom the whole world of baby bottles is pretty new to me. Having two kids is a constant juggle that this time around I wanted to teach Aisla to take a bottle from time to time so hubby can help with feedings and I can get some of a break as well as spend time with big sister.
When I started to look into introducing a bottle to Aisla I wanted to make the switch between breast and bottle a lot easier for the both of us. After hours and hours of research, I decided to try the MAM Anti-Colic Bottle. These bottles are recommended for newborns and up. They are available in single and double packs and comes in 5 ounce or 9 ounce with super cute themed graphics on one side and a large graduated scale on the other. I chose the purple bottles for Aisla with the bunnies and butterfly design! Seriously, it is absolutely adorable.
After some practice and a couple of feedings using the MAM Anti-Colic Bottle, Aisla successfully now takes a bottle without a fuss!! The patented anti-colic vented base made drinking a lot easier by regulating the pressure balance and preventing the baby from swallowing air. Aisla being a fully breastfed baby found it easier to feed with this bottle, the milk flowed evenly without foaming or bubbles so she wasn’t gagging.
Another feature I love about the MAM Anti-Colic Bottle is the nipple’s SkinSoft™ textured surface that feels like mom and keeps the nipple from slipping out of baby’s mouth as well as the unique flat shape at the tip of the nipple that resembles the breast during breastfeeding, making it easy to switch between breast and bottle.
I love that the MAM Anti-Colic Bottles also have leak-proof caps, wide openings and removable base for easy cleaning. All the bottles are BPA-free, BPS-free, PVC-free and lead-free. They are also dishwasher safe and specifically formulated to steam-sterilize in the microwave. My absolute favourite feature about these bottles is the SELF STERILIZING function. This is an absolute game changer!
These innovative bottles sterilize itself! Seriously, love that I don’t need to fill my kitchen with any other baby gadgets to sterilize these bottles. Makes things so much easier and simplifies bottle use.
All you need to do to self-sterilize is:
1.) Fill the base with 1 fl oz. of water using the measuring cap provided.
2.) Place the screw ring with the nipple into the base, next place the bottle body and the cap on top.
3.) Heat in the microwave according to the number of bottles being sterilized.
No wonder that the MAM Anti-Colic Bottles have won numerous awards in the baby category as these bottles are thoughtfully designed for babies and simplify bottle use for parents!
