Paced Bottle Feeding With The Minbie

 

 🍼𝐏𝐀𝐂𝐄𝐃 𝐁𝐎𝐓𝐓𝐋𝐄 𝐅𝐄𝐄𝐃𝐈𝐍𝐆 𝐖𝐈𝐓𝐇 𝐓𝐇𝐄 𝐌𝐈𝐍𝐁𝐈𝐄🍼 


∘ Giving your breastfed/chestfed baby a bottle can be a scary time for some parents.  And we often do not know which bottle to use or how to help our little one bottle feed correctly while also still supporting and encouraging nursing. 

∘ Paced bottle feeding in combination with the Minbie bottle can give you the best chance at sustaining a strong nursing relationship, while helping your baby go from breast➡️bottle➡️breast with ease. 

∘ Formula fed babies can also benefit greatly from adopting paced bottle feeding!


 ∘ 𝐓𝐇𝐄 𝐌𝐈𝐍𝐁𝐈𝐄: 

✔️Supports instinctive latch on 

✔️Supports instinctive breastfeeding motion 

✔️Avoids nipple-confusion when used as the first and only bottle-nipple 

✔️Avoids lazy-feeding 

✔️Anti-Reflux and Anti-Colic feeding motion which supports good digestion 

✔️Nurtures a proper breastfeeding latch 

✔️Strengthens breastfeeding coordination 

✔️Supports baby’s control of the feed 

✔️Encourages a proper, comfortable, anti-mastitis breastfeeding-latch 

✔️Made of premium-quality, German sourced, soft, flexible, BPA-free silicone 

✔️Vent flows air away from the milk 

✔️Teat is compatible with a number of standard wide-neck baby bottles (49.5 - 50.5mm outer neck diameter). The Minbie does not fit narrow-neck bottles or very wide bottles.  They cannot guarantee a fit with other brands, and therefore recommend the use of the Minbie 7oz and 9oz BPA-free PP (polypropylene) bottles. 

✔️Paced flow nipples also available as well as premie teats 

✔️Award winning design 

✔️Minbie is the closest nipple to nursing  

✔️It’s design is made to feel and work just like a human nipple does while nursing

❌Can quickly cause nipple-confusion and bottle preference 

❌May cause lazy feeding and inability to breastfeed. 

❌Sub-optimal for a baby’s digestion 

❌Can harm a newborn’s ability to latch correctly when breastfeeding 

❌Reduces a baby’s control of the feed, which can result in reflux and/or colic 

❌May cause a weak latch 

❌Other nipples are not designed to create and mimic paced bottle feeding, which every baby should be doing at the bottle, even formula fed babies. 


∘ Why Paced Bottle Feeding: 

💦On average nipples, babies get a flow of milk quickly and easily  

💦Baby will not be satisfied on their usual 2-3 ounces that they get at the breast because the bottle has allowed and non-paced feed has allowed the baby to ingest milk at a rapid rate. 

💦Baby’s tummy has not had enough time to tell their brain that they are full 

💦The caretaker will in turn give the baby more milk, and cause baby to feel REALLY full 

💦Baby will learn that the bottle is easier and will think that a very full belly is what he/she needs to be satisfied 

💦All this can lead to baby wanting more than usual at the breast and start favoring the bottle
