If you’re a breastfeeding mother, you know how challenging it can be to incorporate a bottle into your feeding routine. The problem is that you don’t want to create nipple confusion where your baby doesn’t want to return to the breast. With my first daughter, I never really had this problem as she would never take a bottle. Perhaps she just preferred mommy or maybe the bottles just weren’t lifelike enough. In an effort to solve this problem, Munchkin, a leader in the baby product world has come out with a new bottle with an accordion-style nipple which moves, pumps and stretched like the breast.
Disclosure: I received a free product in exchange for blog coverage. Any opinion expressed in this article is based on my experience with the product.
Introducing the Latch baby bottle. A proper latch is achieved when the mother’s nipple reaches all the way back to baby’s soft palate. The accordion-style nipple on the Latch baby bottle helps achieve this lifelike feeling and helps baby latch easily and correctly.
As I mentioned above, the accordion-style nipple flexes to achieve that real breast feeling. This nipple also pumps like a real breast. Pressure applied on the nipple emulates a flow rate like that of mother’s breast and increased pressure impacts milk flow.
The Latch bottle features a very unique anti-colic valve, something I’ve never seen on a baby bottle. This one-way anti-colic valve allows for proper milk flow and ensures that unwanted air bubbles do not make it through. This sounds like a genius idea to me.
I honestly can’t believe how flexible and lifelike this bottle feels. I’ve never seen anything like it and can’t wait to test it out when baby #2 arrives. The anti-colic valve is so unique and such a great idea. There are so many bottles out there that claim to be anti-colic bottles but none of them have this.
