Reasons you might need a bottle

Suggested ad (Tommee Tippee)

You might be 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, having a bottle around the house can be useful.

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 great bottles to help you out.

The Tommee Tippee® Closer to Nature® Bottle 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.

If you plan on going to work…

Whether you’re breastfeeding or formula feeding, you’ll need bottles so that someone else can feed your baby when you’re not there. If you’re formula feeding, you’ll simply need a bottle to be the vehicle that gets the formula from the packaging into baby’s belly.

For breastfeeding, there are a few more steps. You’ll need to pump either at work or at home, and then you’ll need to store your breast milk for your baby to drink later. It’s important 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 sometimes plans change. 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, a bottle is the best option for getting some much needed rest for many new moms.

There are lots of reasons that you might need the Tommee Tippee Closer to Nature® bottle. Its breast-like shape makes for an easy transition between breast and bottle, and the soft, supple silicone mirrors the natural feel and feeding motion of a nipple. The Closer to Nature® bottle’s nipple also has a raised contour zone, forming a perfect match to baby’s mouth that reduces air intake and dribbles. It comes with an acceptance guarantee!
