When I first became pregnant with Maddie, I took on the personal mission of researching the best baby products available. I would scour the aisles, looking, pricing, and reading. I read reports from other moms, asked questions, and even turned to the trendy magazines while sitting in my OB's office. And, now that Maddie's 10 months old and is actually going to be weaned from the bottle soon enough, I wanted to let other new moms know about this great design from Coddlelife .
Coddlelife bottles are BPA free and come with a one-piece nipple which mimics breastfeeding action. The nipple is also extra stretchy which elongates and molds to fit the inside of the baby's mouth.
Coddlelife nipples are also designed to be longer, which ensures the baby's lips flange widely and enable wide, open latch which can prevent nipple confusion. And we all know how hard it can be for newborns to go from breast to bottle and vice-versa. Coddlelife is not about replacing breastfeeding, but instead duplicating the most natural nursing style for a baby. And the new advanced venting technology helps to reduce colic, spit-up, and ear infections which can save us all heartache and money.
Briefly, other attributes I find interesting about Coddlelife :
~ Coddlelife products are BPA free.
~ Coddlelife not only provides plastic bottles but also glass.
~ Coddlelife nipples have small particles on the surface to stimulate the baby's senses.
~ Coddlelife also offers ultra cushion silicon bottle wraps with open view window which helps to ensure the bottle stays warmer longer, that the heat doesn't transfer from the bottle to your hand, and provides anti-slip care for glass bottles.
And, Coddlelife bottles are reasonably priced @ $6.99 a bottle or a 3 pack for $18.99.
Coddlelife happily sent me an 8 ounce bottle, just like the one featured here, to try out with my own baby and give our review. Well, little Ms. Maddie is very picky about her nipple choices and even though I could get her to place the nipple in her mouth and take a few sips, she generally thought of it as a new toy, exciting and fun, but wouldn't adequately drink from it. However, I must also point out that Maddie is naturally pulling away from all bottles at the moment and is, instead, more interested in cups.
So, would I recommend this bottle? Yes, I truly feel Coddlelife bottles, with their unique design and technology, can offer a baby, and mom, a great feeding experience. Are there any downsides? The only weakness I found in this product is that they are not widely carried in stores. Their website is quick, informative, and easy to navigate and you can always order your bottles on-line, but I'm a hands on kind of girl, and just love seeing my products in person before purchasing.
And now to the giveaway!
