As an AB I really do enjoy a baby bottle, the soothing, calming effect that comes from nursing on a nipple and suckling back some milk, juice or even formula.
What I really do find amazing is that babies are so good at nursing from these things. Those nipples are SLOW and the amount of sucking you need to do is CRAZY. I (and I am sure most of you) have found that making the nipple hole slightly larger does eliminate this problem.
I was shopping at Walmart the other day and decided to stroll down the baby aisle to see if there were any new products on the market. I noticed that glass bottles have returned and that there a number of new bottle designs and styles. I was thinking maybe it is time for me to upgrade my 5 year old Playtex Insulator Bottles (with Silicon Stage 2 nipples).
With so many products on the market I have no idea where I should even start. I was hoping my fellow AB/TB bros could help me out and offer their suggestions.
I was kind of leaning towards the bottles with liners and the soft latex nipple. The manufacturer claims the baby (me) will ingest less air this way (which is a problem with drinking from a sealed bottle).
Let me know your thoughts about bottles and your preferences.
