Meet Me in the Nipple Aisle
All too often, the breastfeeding helper finds herself in the uncharted territory of fielding artificial nipple questions and helping mothers select the best bottles for their breastfed babies. By broadening your artificial nipple knowledge and learning about bottle features you can minimize the negative impact of bottle use. Once you become familiar with bottle features and their impact on a baby’s suck, you can also use this knowledge to improve latching and sucking skills.
