This Baby Takes a Bottleeee!!

Hi Guys!

Although I am still breast-feeding, Tim and I made sure to get Archie to take a bottle because Hazel never took a bottle or pacifier and MY LIFE WAS HARD, OK?!

Look at her practicing what she didn’t preach!! 🙂 

I don’t go out often, but I had a kidney stone surgery that took all day, and I go grocery shopping by myself which (YAY) takes a lot of time given the current circumstances of social distancing.

We got Archie the Tommee Tippee Closer to Nature bottle and LET ME TELL YOU ALL ABOUT IT.


This GEM of a bottle is the most breast like bottle EVER. Starting with the breast shape nipple, which gives the baby a natural latch, to the smooth silicone that stretches and feels like mom’s skin. No matter who is giving baby the bottle, baby will accept it and enjoy every second of it!


Now… what I always worried about was to give my baby a bottle and make him gassy. The Closer to Nature bottle has a magic anti-colic valve that reduces extra air flow so baby can get more milk, less air.

They come in different flows and THE BEST PART? It’s easy clean, CAN I GET AN AMEN? With my first daughter Zoey 4 years ago, I used a set of bottles that had FIVE PARTS. FIVE. Cleaning up took so long, and my kitchen was a mess all the time. The Closer to Nature bottle has 3 parts, making it easy to clean and sterilize it.


They are obviously BPA-free and phthalate-free and you can start the baby on the bottles from the newborn stage!


Tommee Tippee also made the Closer to Nature PACIFIER, (and they also have ones that glow in the dark, WHAAAT)? This pacifier follows the Closer to Nature model of looking and feeling like mom’s breasts and curves away from baby’s face, which prevents rashes and increase airflow.
