In Partnership With nanobébé
Today being a mommy is tougher than ever. We leave our kids at home and travel far for our job, studies and other zillion things we need to do. Naturally, as moms we worry if our children and family have had enough to eat while we are away. This is especially true if there is an infant at home!
For various reasons, I chose to bottle feed my son. This in itself is a huge transition for my infant who needs to leave the comfort of the breast and move on to artificial nipples. I was very worried about how my son would take this change and if he could comfortably move on or cling to me.
Then I got a nanobébé starter set for my little baby and it is wonderful. Let me tell you how the nanobébé breastmilk bottles have made my life easy.
A Bottle That Feels Like a Mother's Breast
At first, I tried a few baby bottles available in the market, changing different brands and styles to see what suited my child. None of them gave the much-needed comfort to my son. His milk intake was poor and I was one stressed mom. Finally, the nanobébé baby bottle came to the rescue.
Nanobébé is designed to emulate the look and feel of a mother's breast and I it comes wonderfully close. My little one took to it immediately (and I felt incredibly relieved).
As a mom who works around the clock, my time is naturally limited at home. Feeding the baby is a huge responsibility that I am finally comfortable in leaving to my child's caregiver because I entirely trust my nanobébé breastmilk bottle.
What You Get
I'm not going to lie: life became way easier after I got my nanobébé starter set. It is the best gift ever to a busy new mom like me! This starter set has four milk bottles (we all know how useful it is to have more than a few bottles on hand, right?), two great pacifiers (to gently soothe your kid when you get the milk ready) and a smart non-electric warming bowl to heat the milk.
I know I already gushed about these bottles being a lifesaver, but I love them so much that I can't seem to stop talking about them! You will see why once you take one look at them.
This bottle is designed in such a way that it is similar to a mother's breast in shape, easy to hold encouraging the baby to self-feed early on. The nanobébé breastmilk bottle is also easy to heat and it evenly warms and cools.
Folks, this is simply awesome—it means we do not lose essential vitamins and minerals in the milk. And the milk does not scald the tiny one.
These bottles have travel caps too for hygiene handling. And the bottles can be cleaned easily as all the parts are detachable. The bottles can be stacked one top of the other, a superb feature if you ask me. Makes them easy to store in our ever-full refrigerator and drying racks.
What else can you expect when you have smart biomedical engineers and revolutionary baby bottle makers on the design team?
If you pump milk, you can directly do so in the nanobébé breastmilk bottle using their breast pump adapter. But if you mix formula like me, you can simply mix the right proportions of warm water and formula and pour it into these bottles. Transitioning from breastmilk to formula for my son was made easy with this cool nanobébé breastmilk bottle.
You Don't Need Electricity
Just place the milk bottle inside the warming bowl, add warm tap water to the bowl till the water reaches just below the nipple level. Warm milk is ready in a few minutes. This is great because you can use this anywhere where you have access to hot water. (Just take care not to use boiling water.)
I am even excited to use the nanobébé smart warming bowl on our upcoming Mendocino family camping trip! Non-electric heating has its advantages, guys. Feeding your child nice warm milk even when you are on camping trips is a nice bonus.
Accessories That Make a Difference
Nanobébé has even more wonderful and efficient products in their range like their microwave steam sterilizers, breastmilk storage bags and organizer, compact drying racks and breast pump adapters.
I am slowly buying all of them and find them super useful. Check out all the nanobébé products and you can thank me later :)
