When we were shopping for baby bottles while I was still pregnant, I kept in mind that I was going to breastfeed but that I needed bottles when I have to leave my baby at home. That way, I can just pump breastmilk, freeze it, and thaw it when it was time for my baby's feeding.
We got ordinary bottles, as we looked for the cheapest finds in the market. But the saleslady who heard my husband and I conversing, recommended the First Years by Learning Curve Breastflow Technology feeding bottles. In a box, there were three bottles, 3 caps, 3 nipples and 3 caps. The lady told us that it would be easy to alternate between breastfeeding and bottlefeeding because Breastflow had a wide neck and soft outer nipple that resembles the breast. We thought it was good and bought a pack.
When the baby came, we realized how good the product was. And since I did not have much breastmilk and had to supplement with formula, we needed more bottles. So we bought more.
We liked the fact that Breastflow Technology bottles have two layers of nipples. There is control in the flow of milk because if the baby will not suck on the nipple, the milk will not come out. This feature also comes in handy when the bottle is left on the bed without cover because it does not easily spill.
The good think with this product is, there is minimal air that goes to the baby. Since birth, my baby only suffered from colic once--and that was when we let her try another brand of bottle that was supposed to be anti-colic. So after that, never again with another brand. Our baby only likes Breastflow Technology.
One little downside is the cleaning. It can be tricky because it has two nipples and it has nooks and crannies not foundi in regular bottles. But it is worth it because we are free from the fussing brought about by colic.
