    Lightbulb The First Years Breastflow Bottles

    Just wanted to let everyone know about these...

    I decided to order a pack since DD has been having some trouble opening wide enough to latch on as comfortably as possible. I figured this is the result of me having to supplement with a bottle (she's been using Playtex nurser Medium flow latex nipples) due to a long-lasting breast infection that made me way too sore to nurse. But the Breastflow bottles make baby open WIDE, and since I am still supplementing a little (down to 2-3 times a day! Yay!) hopefully they will help with her latch at the breast.

    I will let you know how well they work for us!! I just thought it was nice to see a bottle made especially for mothers who breastfeed but need to use a bottle once in a while.

    I'm a full-time single mama and a full-time law student!! Loving every minute!!

    I bought those when DD was little. I only used them a couple of times, but I thought they were really neat. It's cool how they work almost just like a boob, too. Good luck with them, let us know how it all goes! And congrats on getting the supplementing down!

    Breastfeeding is an unsentimental metaphor for how love works, in a way. You don't decide how much and how deeply to love - you respond to the beloved, and give with joy exactly as much as they want. ~Marni Jackson
