Nothing in this world quite compares to the birth of a child, yet with three kids all over three years of age, it seems like an eternity to me since I had a newborn. Motherhood may be hard work, but I would be lying if I said I didn’t miss that precious baby stage so much. I miss nursing them, I miss that sweet baby smell, and I miss their tiny little bodies. By the time my third, Gemma was born, I was much more at ease when it came to feedings. That particle of doubts that worried me with Ryder and Siella had gone, as I was more confident in myself and tried to enjoy the moment, understanding it was short lived.
For me, a third child meant I was required to pump more often, so having the proper bottle that would complement breast feeding rather than deter it, was imperative. There were plenty of occasions when Ryder or Siella had after school activities, which required either leaving Gemmie with a sitter, or toting her around. Regardless, at these times giving her a bottle of breast milk was simply easier. Still obsessed with everything baby, and sometimes dreaming of having one more little one, I discovered Chicco’s NaturalFit bottles, which were developed with the breastfeeding mom in mind.
Chicco’s NaturalFit bottles offer a natural way to feed your baby, as an alternative to the breast, because their nipples are designed to mimic breastfeeding. Especially for newborns, a breast-like, angled nipple with a rounded base creates ideal positioning for an easy and natural latch, and the extra soft nipple supports the baby’s natural feeding motion. The design of the NaturalFit bottles will not confuse the baby, and could help with an easier transition when feeding both ways.
Another cool feature are the dual anti-colic valves, which help prevent air ingestion, gas and spit-up. As your baby grows and their feeding style changes, NaturalFit nipples provide multiple fit and flow options to match their development. Flow capacities include slow, medium, adjustable, fast and Y-Cut, all of which can be used on their 5oz, 8oz, and 11oz bottles. These bottles are wide-mouth, and when feeding Gemma, I found that made them the easiest to clean, which any parent can appreciate when using 4-5 bottles a day.
Chicco’s breast-like NaturalFit bottles make feeding comfortable and easy for baby and mom. There’s nothing like becoming a new parent, and having one less thing to worry about is key.
