Best Baby Bottle

Do you have questions about finding the best baby bottle for your baby? Start here.

To find the best baby bottle for your baby, you will want to consider the shape of the nipple, and how fast or slow the milk flows. Explore these topics below.

Worried about introducing a not-mom nipple to your breastfed baby? You are not alone. We help you tease out fact vs. fiction in Common Myths below, and have included a section devoted to Pacifiers, as this can be a controversial subject as well.

Lastly, if your baby relies on a bottle (breast milk, formula, or both) for all or part of his daily feedings, you need to check out our handout full of tips that will help you prepare for feeding during an emergency.

As you read through these topics below, keep in mind that this page contains just enough info to get you started. Our book contains all the information you need to successfully combine breast and bottle.
