Picking a baby bottle...

One of the many things I've learned after having several children is that they are all different. That fact still rings true when it comes to a baby and his/her bottle. I don't think there is one best baby bottle...but there are definitely some good ones- and sometimes it takes a bit of trial and error to find that bottle that is the best for your baby. 

Luke was born early... he was fed by an NG tube, and really didn't have a chance to suckle until almost a week after he was born. Even when he did have the chance we found that he was just too weak. So, since he's been home he's been using hospital bottles. We've tried a couple different brands, but none of them seemed to work for him.

We recently received the 8oz Nuby Wide Neck Non-Drip bottle to try. Luke actually takes to this bottle, but it takes him a long time to drink all his milk. The nipple is a variable flow nipple so the baby can control the flow... I guess Luke decided he wanted to go nice and slow! I'm just glad we have a bottle that he will use.

This is not how I "normally" hold his bottle... had to hold it differently to snap the picture. ;)

My favorite feature of this bottle is the "grow with me" feature. The bottle comes with (removable) handles, and a sippy spout! The bottle is meant for babies 3 months old and older. This will be perfect for transitions! Luke will be able to hold his own bottle with the handles, and then transition into a sippy cup.

The bottle is BPA free and be purchased at

I received these bottles to use for this review. No monetary compensation was received. All opinions are my own!
