Chicco’s NaturalFit Bottles Adapts to Your Growing Baby
As a mother of four I have been through my fair share of bottles over the course of all four children. I’ve breastfed and formula fed and I know that whether you choose to breastfeed or formula feed having a good bottle is key. For mother’s who breastfeed you need a bottle that easy for baby to identify with and not cause nipple confusion. For formula feeding moms making sure your baby is able to fed comfortably and get all their nutrition needs are extremely important. With each of my four children there was a bottle of choice. None of them liked the same bottles, so that means I’ve spent a lot of money on bottles.
“I participated in an Influencer Activation on behalf of Influence Central for Chicco. I received product samples to facilitate my review and a promotional item to thank me for my participation.”
The first time I remember seeing Chicco bottles was around the time my youngest son was born. I gravitated towards them because of the nipple stages. All of my kids had problems with gas so finding a bottle with a nipple that didn’t allow too much air to travel through the nipple. Chicco’s NaturalFit Bottles is engineered to be responsive to the changing feeding styles of babies. Three distinct nipple shapes adapt to the specific needs of growing babies by changing shape as the baby’s way of feeding develops. Chicco’s NaturalFit Bottles comes in three different transitional stages.
Stage One: Newborn Flow
The Newborn Flow nipples on the Chicco’s NaturalFit Bottles are angled and the wider, rounded base helps aid with newborn latch and encourages proper neck positioning. The angle remains full of milk helping to reduce the amount of air your child ingests. This was huge sell for me because colic is horrible. I hate that helpless feeling when my kids would get colic. These bottles also features a twin anti-colic valve to help prevent air ingestion, gas, and spit-up. Bottles to use for this stage are either the 5 oz or 8 oz bottles.
Stage Two: Adjustable Flow
After four months babies then to have better control of their head and neck, colic symptoms ten to subside and their appetite begins to grow. The Chicco’s NaturalFit Adjustable Flow stage allows parents to replace the angled nipple with a straight nipple to adapt to your baby’s advancing feeding skills. Stage two feedings usually require the 8 oz sized bottles.
Stage Three: Fast Flow
By the time your baby is ready for stage three their suction strength is increased, so their nipple needs change. The fast flow nipples are smaller and less rounded at the base for tighter lip support. These nipples encourages correct swallowing as your baby become more efficient with feeding. Fast flow nipples are available as 11 oz bottles.
In addition to the bottles our starter set included two additional nipples and two pacifiers. My son loved the Chicco pacifiers when he was a baby. WE tired quite a few before finding this one. A simple carrying case was also included in the box for the pacifiers. This starter kit would make the perfect baby shower gift. I gave the set we received to my brother, he and his girlfriend recently had a baby and already he was having feeding issues. I told them about the benefit of using the Chicco bottles and gave them this set to try. They both said they noticed a difference at feeding time almost immediately.
