Must-Haves for Bottle Feeding!

You got this mama! Here are my top tips & links to help make bottle-feeding go smoothly!

1.) I would start with a few bottles from different brands until you find the right fit for your baby. Then once they find the one they like I recommend having 5-8 on hand!

With my first 4 babies I used - Philips AVENT Glass Natural Baby Bottle with Natural Response Nipple. They loved these because they had a natural nipple shape and ultra soft feel makes it easy for baby to combine with breastfeeding. I love that they never leave a lasting smell from old milk. They don't warp or dis-color over time!

My little Nellie had a harder time going in between nursing and bottles. That’s when I discovered BIBS bottles. She was already taking their pacifier, so it was a seamless transition!


2.) Burp Cloths are a game changer. You will save so much laundry by having one on hand during every feeding. I designed our Cloud Muslin Burp Cloths to be over sized for great coverage, ultra absorbent & buttery soft on baby’s skin! I recommend having about 5-10 on hand!

3.) Bibs are a life saver. They are easy to snap on before or after a feeding for any potential spit up! You will use a lot of bibs and you will want them to be easy to-clean and super absorbent! I designed our Cloud Muslin Bibs to be just that! I recommend having 5-10 on hand!

4.) Drying racks are something I didn’t think I would need, but after buying one I have to admit it was very helpful! I feel like it kept bottles away from germs and dried them quickly to avoid any trapped water. There are so many cute ones out there, but here is one that caught my eye!

5.) Bottle brush is a must! Milk can get trapped in many parts of your bottle and you will want to make sure that they are squeaky clean to avoid molding & ruining your bottles! Keeping your bottles clean will keep your baby safe!


6.) This one is a splurge, but if you are bottle feeding around the clock this is a game changer! The Baby Breeza makes perfectly portioned bottles at the right temperature! 

7.) I loved having this when I was on the go! You can pre-measure formula for easy on-the-go bottles! I love how versatile this stackable formula dispenser is! Once you are done using it for formula, you can turn it into a snack holder!
