Picking a bottle that works for your baby can be a daunting task. Since every baby is different, you may find that your baby may not love the same type of bottle that your first baby or your friend’s babies adore. I recently found a great bottle that works fabulously for both my newborn son and I.
The MAM Anti-Colic bottle has some great features that made transitioning from breast to bottle very easy for us. The first feature that I love is that the MAM’s patented silky soft nipple has a unique shape. Instead of being completely circular and long like other nipples (which my babies have always seemed to choke on when they are first starting), the MAM nipple is short and wide (yet flattened) and I think resembles a woman’s breast more than other bottle nipples. The nipple is also designed so that it doesn’t collapse while drinking. So, no need “burp” the bottle because the nipple collapses in your baby’s mouth! I’m happy to say that my son took to this nipple immediately with no problems.
The second feature that I love is the functional design of the bottle. Both the top and the bottom (the base) of the bottle have wide openings that unscrew to make this an extremely easy bottle to clean. No bottle brush needed! Plus the wide opening makes filling the bottle effortless. The MAM Anti-Colic bottle also has an innovative base that is vented to control milk flow and balances air pressure which is supposed to be ideal for reducing colic. My only word of caution is to make sure that you screw the base on the bottle correctly every time or the bottle will start to leak.
Finally, the cap is actually leak-proof like the company advertises. This is important when the bottle accidentally gets tipped over in the diaper bag. The MAM Anti-Colic bottle is BPA free and comes in 2 sizes: 5 oz and 8 oz. The MAM Nipple also is available in four different flow rates for your growing baby.
