About Feeding Bottles

After your baby is born, you need to be equipped with feeding bottles all the time. These are convenient because anybody can feed milk to the baby if the mother is not available. First-time parents remain in a dilemma between breast milk or formula milk. However, that's nothing to do with buying bottles because you can store your breast milk to the feeding bottles and let your baby have his feed on time, especially when you are working and some urgency keeps you away from your child.

You should consider the equipment and accessories as a helping hand in the overall development of your child. These can ease your work, keep your mind relax, and gives you more time to strengthen the parent-child bond from the starting. You should start listing what all you need before the baby is born but consider buying them post-delivery. This way, you would better understand your child's needs and doctor's advice would be helpful too. Hence, the best feeding bottle is not about a reputed brand only, but what suits you and your child.

Nipple confusion is a very common term related to babies unusual behaviour under certain circumstances. So, when you try to breastfeed and bottle feed the baby at the same time, he will get confused and refuse both. The kind of action required to suck the milk from breasts and bottle is different. Thus, it is difficult to learn both at the same for such a small kid. If you are a working mother, you can't ask your baby to learn both the skills. It would be better if you consult an expert and take his help to make this thing work. You can also invest in Dr Brown's breast-to-bottle feeding set or preemie flow nipple if you happen to switch between breastfeeding and bottle milk.

While buying feeding bottles online in the UAE, you will see glass and plastic are two commonly used material. Talking about glass material, they contain no chemicals, tastes better, durable, and compatible with most breast pumps.

Tips on how to buy Feeding bottles online

Feeding bottles or any baby & toddler products are not limited to inspecting just the brand or material. Here, you are buying things for someone who can't tell whether it is good or bad. You have to understand his need and contemplate the best product out of many options you can see online. This is one daunting task, but you got to gear up with all you have. We have compiled a few but essential points that will help you in making your purchase s smart one.
  • Choose the material - Baby feeding bottles glass vs plastic, silicone, or stainless steel are your options, and each one of them has their pros and cons. Plastic bottles are readily available but make sure they are BPA-free when you buy one. Silicone is slightly on the higher range but soft and lightweight. Glass is breakable but considered of good quality from years. Lastly, stainless steel's quality is also up to the mark, but they are vulnerable to denting and tend to have weak venting system.
  • Correct bottle size - Appetite, diet plan, the weight of the baby and age are four filters that let you make the right decision. Considering the age factor, 1 to 2 ounces is sufficient for a newborn and can reach up to 4 ounces by the end of the first month. After that, most babies can consume six to eight ounces per feed. One simple hack to know the right size is to determine the weight of the baby. Babies need 2.5 ounces for every pound of body weight, and this way, you will know the right size.
  • About the bottle nipple - We recommend not stocking up the feeding bottle before the baby is born. After breastfeeding, you can better understand your baby's needs and pick the correct shape. You can choose an orthodontic shape with a slanted side or the angled one that offers a breast-like comfort. There are also vented products to reduce collapsing the side of the nipples during feeding. The material of the nipple matters too. It could be either latex or silicone, whichever you prefer.
  • The shape of the bottle - Even if you hold the bottle or the baby is grownup to hold it himself, it is suggested to buy ergonomic shape. Other than the outer shape, you can choose to have a wide neck for easy cleaning and formula mixing. You should also consider having a vent system in which the vent holes or vent attachment inside the nipple reduces air bubbles, thereby making the feeding more comforting.
  • Accessories to buy - With a bottle, you also need caps and covers, and it would be more helpful if you have them extra. Bottle warmer beside you can be a blessing when your child is fussy and take breaks during the feed. During travel, you can stow an insulated bag to keep the bottles warm all day long. You should also peak into the cleaning products, such as sterilisers, brushes, dishwasher basket, drying rack are some of the accessories you can consider.
