Before this bottle came along, my breastfed babies would refuse to eat when I’d leave the house. Leaving my breastfed first-born with my husband was hell, because he’d literally scream the whole time I was gone because he was hungry and would not eat from regular bottle nipples.
But Adiri Natural Nurser finally figured it out for breastfed babies. Its wider nipple diameter and shorter, rounder tip shape simulate the comfort of an actual breast. It goes in stages, like any other bottle, in increments of three months. It also has features to prevent colic – its “leak-resistant Petal vent prevente your baby from ingesting extra air,” the bottle’s package highlights. It is also BPA free.
The only negative aspect of this breastfed baby-friendly bottle is that unlike other bottles, the nipple and actual bottle are all one piece, and the bottle is kind of expensive. So when your breastfed baby surpasses each stage, you can’t just buy a new nipple, you have to buy a whole new bottle with cap and everything. Also, it is not dishwasher safe, and you should not submerge it in water.
Despite those small setbacks, this bottle for breastfed babies still received the “Medical Design Award” for assisting the transfer from a breast to a bottle. It was about time someone made this product! It’s one of those things we all wished existed and alas, it finally exists! Now why didn’t I think of that?!
Oh, by the way…it’s much cheaper to buy this bottle on amazon than it is to buy it from a retail store. It’s about half the cost, and well worth it.
