18 months later and I am still not ready to say goodbye to breastfeeding. But that doesn’t mean I can’t enjoy some freedom once in a while. Thanks to our new best friend, the bottle.
Lately we have started the weening process by incorporating bottles throughout the day. I’m trying to slowly reduce my milk supply to avoid mastitis. This being Briton’s first bottle experience I went with the bottles I used for Holland, when I pumped for her exclusively when I had bells palsy and she had a hard time latching onto me and gaining weight (we later found out she was both tongue and lip tied). I found most success with Avent Anti-colic bottles.
I also love how I can switch out the nipple to a sippy cup. We are using the nipple for now because it is so close to nursing. This is another reason I had Holland on the Avent anti-colic bottles, because she could simply latch with out the nipple collapsing on her. She didn’t get any unwanted air in her stomach and she never burped after feeding, so she went to bed without a fuss.
Below I have shared actress and new mom Sarah Chalke first child experience with colic and how she’s trusting Philips Avent to ensure the best feeding experience for her new daughter, Frankie.
Every baby is unique whether it be colic, lip tied, tongue tied, hard to ween, etc. We as moms can all agree we want our babies to feel comfort and have an enjoyable feeding experience, because when baby feeds well everyone sleeps well 🙂
