Philips Avent Natural Bottles: Perfect for Breastfeeding Moms #LoveIsInTheDetails

Disclosure: I am part of the PTPA Brand Ambassador Program with Philips Avent and I received Compensation as part of my affiliation with this group. The opinions on this blog are my own.

When my first was born and had to stay in the NICU, I wasn’t prepared for a  few of the choices we would have to make.  Although having our little man early was a concern, I hadn’t given much thought to some of the complications we would have breastfeeding if he was.  But then reality set in.  Since he was having some issues with breathing, breastfeeding wasn’t going well.  I struggled with the reality of having to try a bottle or a feeding tube.  Both options broke my heart.

Looking back now, I was really being silly.  I should have been thrilled a bottle was even an option!  I knew I would have to return to work when he was 8 weeks old, so he was going to take a bottle either way.  Being a new mom though, I was very worried he would have nipple confusion and then we would never successfully be able to breastfeed.  That is all water under the bridge now, he did take a bottle and we had NO problems breastfeeding what so ever.

Fast forward eight years and four children later, I am very thankful for the bottle options that are now available.  I have pumped with each of my children and some were better at taking a bottle than others, but each one definitely had their favorite bottles.  My little man is very particular about his.  He will only take one binky well, and we have found that to be true with bottles as well!  Thankfully we have found one he is willing to take and I couldn’t be more excited that it is the Philips Avent Natural Bottle.

It is no wonder why he will take the Philips Avent Natural Bottle, it has a wide, breast-like shape that makes it easy to latch on.  The nipple is extra soft and flexible so it mimics actual breastfeeding.  I won’t lie, Caleb seems to love the nipple.  When he isn’t sucking on it, he is biting it with his gums.

After struggling with colic with previous babies, I love that it was designed to allow the air to flow into the bottle and not into the baby’s tummy with the advanced anti-colic system.  This is huge for baby’s because it can really make them quite unhappy.   For mom, it has fewer parts that makes it super simple to clean and use.

While I haven’t had to bottle feed this little guy milk often, he is taking water from the bottle as we begin to journey down the food path.  He is loving food and starting to really enjoy water.
