Now you are probably on your way to furnishing your baby nursery and preparing the house for the new addition to the family. One important baby product to research fully, before committing to buy, is the brand of baby bottles you wish to use for your new born baby.
Whether breastfeeding or bottle feeding, buying baby bottles is one of the most important baby products that you still ought to do. The hard task is choosing the best feeding bottle that is suitable and happily accepted by your baby.
YES! Don’t be so surprised! Newborns can sometimes reject a baby bottle without any ‘known’ reasons (of course infants do have their own reasons), hence why I always suggest having a few different baby bottle brands on hand so your baby can decide which they prefer.
If you have any idea of how many products are out there when it comes to baby bottles, there is literally thousands! We found it so much easier, breaking down the best infant bottles based on the type of baby bottle to suit your needs. This should make the decision a whole lot easier for you!
So, which is the best baby bottle brand? Really, you have to decide depending on your individual needs, baby’s needs and circumstances as explained below.
