We’re all pretty familiar with the debate on milk versus formula feeding, bottle versus breast. No matter the conversation, the answer remains that things are different for every mom. But chances are, no matter your situation, you’ll still want a bottle around the house.
If you plan on formula feeding…
That’s a pretty good reason to stock up on some bottles! If you plan on feeding your baby with formula, you’re going to need some awesome bottles to help you out. The Tommee Tippee® Ultra Bottle is the only baby bottle you’ll ever need. It has a nipple made from a super-soft, high-grade silicone that allows it to move in multiple directions, like a breast, replicating a natural feeding action, and it has an offset nipple for a smooth milk flow that reduces air intake.
If you plan to go to work
For breast milk or formula, if you need someone else to feed your baby while you’re at work, you’re going to need some bottles. For formula, you’ll just need a bottle to get the formula from the packaging to baby’s belly, but breast milk is a little more complicated. You’ll need to pump either at work or at home, and then you’ll need a way to store your breast milk for your baby to drink later. Don’t forget to label your milk with the time of expression so you can use the oldest milk first!
If you have trouble breastfeeding
You might plan to exclusively breastfeed your baby for the first few months or years, but life sometimes has a funny way of interrupting plans. You might have trouble latching or producing milk, you might need to go on medication that prevents you from breastfeeding, or your baby might simply prefer the bottle. If breastfeeding doesn’t work out as planned, you’ll want a high-quality bottle on hand, so it’s a good idea to have a backup in the cabinet.
If you need a break
Babies eat so much. Like…so much. If you have multiples or a particularly hungry baby, it’s possible that you won’t be able to keep up with their appetite, no matter how much you want to. Newborns need to eat every few hours, and that can be absolutely exhausting. Whether that means supplementing with formula, or creating a stockpile of breastmilk so another caregiver can cover a feeding, for many new moms, a bottle is the best option for getting some much needed rest.
There are lots of reasons that you might need the Tommee Tippee Ultra Bottle. Its breast-like shape makes for an easy transition between breast and bottle, and the soft, pliable silicone mirrors the natural feel and feeding motion of a nipple. The Ultra Bottle’s nipple also has a raised contour zone, forming a perfect match to baby’s mouth that reduces air intake and dribbles. It’s also angled to make for a more comfortable feeding position for you and baby.
