Raising A Happy Family Together With Playtex Baby

Raising A Happy Family Together With Playtex Baby

As a mother you want nothing but the best for your children. I breastfeed and pump at the same time because being self-employed means no maternity leave for me at this time. Every now and then I simply need a break from breastfeeding which is why we opted for the Playtex Baby™ Nurser with Drop-Ins® Liners. These baby bottles provide a bottle system that is closet to natural breastfeeding.

This is a sponsored conversation written by me on behalf of Playtex BabyTM.

The Nurser bottle simulates the same suck and swallow patterns as breastfeeding. As my sweet baby Jaxson feeds, the soft disposable liner inside the bottle gently collapses (just like the breast does naturally while breastfeeding) to prevent air from mixing with milk and getting into Jaxson’s tummy. This air-free feeding helps to reduce colic; and the nipple has a natural wide shape and a raised texture which helps Jaxson latch on naturally. Jaxson actually does a pretty good job latching on to me and the bottle. While it wasn’t easy in the beginning—persistence certainly paid off! The key is not to get discouraged and just keep on trying.

Many of my friends asked me questions about pumping too and while it might seem daunting at first, pumping isn’t complicated at all once you get the knack of it. My breast pump allows me to fill my Playtex Baby Nurser with Drop-Ins Liners with my precious milk + it helps maintain my milk supply, relieves engorgement, and creates a backup stash for my freezer. You can purchase these bottles at Walmart (be sure to check Walmart’s store locator HERE) and use their on-package coupons. The Playtex Baby Nurser with Drop-Ins Liners are literally perfect for a busy mom on-the-go. The disposable Drop-Ins Liners make this bottle easy to use and easy to clean, and provide a comfortable feed for my baby Jaxson. As I feed Jaxson, I can see the soft liner gently collapsing to prevent air from mixing with milk and getting into Jaxson’s tummy. This means less gas and less discomfort for him.

The Playtex Baby Nurser with Drop-Ins Liners are “uniquely designed to reduce colic. The disposable liner collapses like the breast to help prevent air from mixing with the milk, and the optional angled position promotes semi-upright feeding which is recommended by pediatricians to help prevent ear infections.”

So, I decided to pump and feed breast milk and directly breastfeed whenever I can. I personally think there’s no right or wrong because at the end of the day you need to do what is right for you. You can still be close to your baby too while you breast pump. Either have your baby around or if you’re out and about be sure to have a picture of your baby or a blanket that smells like him/her nearby. And don’t forget to hold your baby close, stroke him/her and maintain eye contact when feeding to help maintain an emotional connection. Also, I’ve learned that it’s absolutely OK to take a breastfeeding break sometimes and let my husband give Jaxson a bottle. Everyone wins: They’ll snuggle and bond while I get to rest.

How about you? Do you solely breastfeed or pump? If you pump do you have a favorite brand to feed your baby with? Either way let me know by commenting below!

As always, thanks much for reading & have a great day! #ForBetterBeginnings #MomsFirst

    What an insightful post, especially for a mom-to-be like myself! I’ve heard that it can be a bit hard getting the hang of breast feeding in the beginning, even more so when baby isn’t latching on easily, but persistence is key. I’m mentally preparing myself for that because I’ve known some women who that really affected them emotionally and felt as though they weren’t a good mother, when it has nothing to do with that. I love that you mentioned that both options, breastfeeding and bootle feeding are both OK and that you have to do what’s right for you. I’ve seen women get picked apart for not breastfeeding and quite frankly, it’s no ones business to state an opinion because we don’t know the reasons or circumstances, so I’m sure your readers appreciate you addressing this. Thanks so much for sharing, beautiful, and I hope you’re having a great week so far and a wonderful weekend ahead!
