If you have a baby with acid reflux or GERD, you know how difficult and frustrating it can be to keep your little one’s belly in check. Or perhaps, like I did, you have a baby who refuses every single bottle you’ve tried to give her.
Enter the Bare Air-free Feeding System by Bittylab. This is a baby bottle alternative that uses innovative technology to create a better way for babies to drink milk out of a bottle. Did you know one of the main reasons for acid reflux in babies is because they’re fed while laying down? The Bare Air-free Feeding System solves that with its Air-plug technology that expels air from the bottle before you start feeding the baby. Then the air-plug moves with suction from the baby to deliver air-free milk, preventing gas buildup.
Here's a video that’s super helpful and shows how the bottle works.
This bottle is ideal for gassy or reflux babies for the following reasons: 1) it forces out all air from the milk, which prevents gas build up; 2) babies are fed in the upright position, which reduces regurgitation of stomach acids; and 3) it allows babies to control the flow or pace of milk so they don’t overeat.
Even better – the Perfe-latch nipple is designed specifically for breastfed babies and is proven to extend breastfeeding when supplementing. The nipple works like a real breast, with a short teat and an “areola” part of the nipple that encourages babies to latch on and suck to extend the teat. The Air-plug and Perfe-latch nipple work together to mimic real breasts’ flow resistance and suckling motion, all of which helps to avoid nipple confusion for breastfed babies. This is a great breastfeeding bottle option for moms who are supplementing and struggle to get their babies to take a bottle. It’s definitely worth checking out. Happy feeding!
