Types of feeding bottles
Basically, all the bottles for feeding children are divided into glass and plastic. And they both have their advantages. The glass bottle is better washed, sterilized and well for a long time serve. Modern plastic bottle well-established firms (Cicco, Avent, Dr. Brown and others) does not yield a glass and have additional benefits - they are very light, do not fight. These bottles will last as long as the child does not learn to drink from a cup himself. But there are cheap plastic products, which cracked after several sterilizations and unsafe for children.
Bottles are also integral and collapsible. Collapsible bottles are easier to clean, they will not exactly milk residues, which breed bacteria.
The shape and volume of the bottle can be different: straight, curved, with a wide neck and narrow. Of course, more convenient bottle with a wide neck, they are easier to clean. The curved shape of the bottle is convenient when feeding the baby in her arms: on the one hand the mother holding the baby in the other - a bottle that is not necessary to lift when it is emptied.

and they are not toxic for the baby.
The nipple on the bottle feeding
Pacifier invented two hundred years ago, and before that artificial feeding was extremely rare. If the child still had to be fed cow's milk, this is done through a cloth, lowered into the bottle.
Nipples for quality bottles in recent years are made of synthetic materials (silicone and latex). The special shape of the nipple and sizes for different ages well affect the formation of children's dentition, sucking a pacifier most close to the physiological act of breastfeeding mothers. These nipples have a ready-made holes - the smaller the child, the less holes. Holes with use nipples do not increase in size ("not resorbed") - do not allow the material from which the manufactured pacifiers, and the laser deposition method at the nipple holes.
Some bottles are made so that to prevent air from entering the gastrointestinal tract of the baby during feeding. They call protivokolikovymi (it swallowed during feeding air often cause bloating
Bloating - if you are bursting inside
and colic in infants). The nipples in these bottles do not stick together, as equipped with special valves, and the child is not necessary to interrupt the sucking, swallowing air at the same time.

These children are more suitable light plastic bottles larger volume (200-250 ml). Some children prefer to drink from a bottle of flat, while others - from the curved. But try to avoid impassable bottles, made in the form of various animals: usually wash them very hard, and if the bottle will be food, it can become a breeding ground for bacteria to grow.
