As I’ve discussed before, we began using bottles very early on as we had to supplement with formula when W was just a few weeks old. I had registered for bottles that claimed to be as close to breastfeeding as possible. I didn’t want anything to interfere with our breastfeeding relationship. There were pros and cons to the different kinds of bottles we tried but I don’t think any of them truly mimicked the way the breast works. W is not 100% bottle fed and prefers the old school Gerber/Evenflo bottles with latex nipples, but I am always on the lookout for a bottle product that might resemble breastfeeding.
When I was introduced to images of the BARE™ Air-free Baby Bottle, the nipple shape is what first caught my attention. It definitely resembles a breast shape. BARE is a revolutionary new baby bottle, designed by a mom, that truly prevents gas and air. It is designed to work just like a mother’s breast, BARE trains baby proper latching and self-feeding, prevents bacteria, simplifies cleaning. BARE will be available on store shelves in January 2012. Because the development and production of BARE is being funded by the mom inventor, I encourage you to visit the BARE project page at the fund-raising site called Kickstarter.
Although I haven’t had a chance to try these bottles yet, I look forward to the opportunity. These bottles are different from any bottle I’ve seen before and I look forward to testing the claims! Who wouldn’t want a bottle that prevents gas and air ingestion with syringe-like dispensing technology, simplifies bottle maintenance with snap-on one-piece nipple and collar and dishwasher-safe parts, and promotes self-feeding by allowing baby to drink from any position! Here is a comparison chart between other bottle brands, BARE, and the breast.
The BARE bottle looks like it will be a step forward in baby bottle technology and it’s designed by a mother! Those are two things about it that definitely interest me. If you’d like to learn more about the BARE project, visit the Kickstarter project page!
I haven’t had a chance to try these bottles yet, but I’m definitely interested. I’d love if you would visit the project page and tell me what you think! What do you think of the BARE bottles? Is this a product you’d be interested in trying?
