Having a baby means life gets busy. We feel like we are running in different directions which causes stress. Feeding your baby can be the time you and baby take to slow down, spend time together and to bond. There are many ways to create a better feeding experience for your baby, and here’s just a few.
Keep It Quiet: Not silent, just quiet. Play soft music, sing to your baby, talk softly to your baby or if you want some background noise, turn the TV down to low. The quiet environment simulates a calm, no-stress, slow down atmosphere keeping them from getting excitable and gulping too much air.
Help them Relax: Rub their arms or legs gently and slowly, play with their fingers, make loads of eye contact and speak in quiet tones. Even if baby was crying for their food because they are hungry, calming this way is soothing and relaxing and will create a better feeding experience.
Choose a Great Bottle: Philips Avent Bottles helps solve feeding concerns. Face it, there are a lot of yucky words that come to mind when it comes to your baby feeding – spit-up, burbing, gas, colic, just to name a few. Philips Avent wants to help moms understand and help them avoid any of it by selecting a bottle that fits their needs. They have introduced the Philips Avent Anti-colic bottle – clinically proven to reduce colic and discomfort. The Philips Avent Anti-colic bottle features a new look and name, with the same Classic+ features that moms have loved for years – to reinforce the fuss-fighting benefits they’ve always had.Philips Avent Anti-colic bottle has a build in venting system that is designed to reduce gas and colic by keeping air away from Carsyn’s tummy. Something we’ve struggled with. I love that the Philips Avent Anti-Colic bottle, with it’s innovative and complex features still only has four simple parts (the bottle, a cap, the nipple and the ring that holds the nipple in place) that come apart easily for cleaning and super simple to reassemble. Oh, and the nipple has a ribbed feature with helps prevent nipple collapse, so it’s easier for Carsyn to keep eating without interruption and no extra air!
Carsyn now takes 8 ounce bottles. This is also the ONLY bottle we’ve found that he can comfortably hold himself with so much liquid inside.
Philips Avent partnered with actress and new mom Sarah Chalke this year to learn about her experience with colic with her first child and how she’s trusting Philips Avent to ensure the best feeding experience for her new daughter, Frankie.
I’m really happy with Philips Avent bottles and Carsyn is too!
