Mom vs. The Bottle

First of all, thank you all so much for your nice comments about Michael and the bottle! It was so reassuring to hear from you and it helped me feel much better! Sometimes you just gotta let it out, right?

Trying to find a bottle that Michael liked was a feat in itself. He originally would take the little Medela bottles that came with my pump when he was first born. But did you know that babies suck reflexively until they are about two months old? So it doesn't even really matter what type of bottle-they will take pretty much anything? At any rate, we weren't really giving him bottles too often because I would only be out for a short bit if I left him with anyone.

So we tried the Dr. Brown's bottles, the Breastflow bottles, even a Nuk bottle. We ended up going with the Playtex Drop-Ins. I like them because I can just use the little milk storage freezer bags right in the bottle without having to use an actual drop-in liner. Less waste is good, right? We are now the proud owners of three bottles and multiple nipples for this brand, along with about a dozen other bottles and all their paraphernalia. Which I also think is a ploy by big business just to get you to buy everything in the store. So new mothers take this advice: just go to Target now and buy every bottle on the shelf, because that is what you will end up doing anyway!
