The Feeding Basics for Baby

The feeding basics for baby


Today I am sharing with you the feeding basics for baby.  I basically overwhelmed myself when I was pregnant.  I felt like I had to have every accessory under the moon.  When it is all said and done the basics is what you need.  A great set of bottles, transition cups, solid feeding plates, spoons and snack containers.  Easy right?!  I have tried tons of products and have found that Dr. Browns has the quality and simplicity that I wanted.

Dr. Brown’s Natural Flow Bottles

I am a tried and true believer of Dr. Brown’s Natural Flow Bottles.  Six years ago when I was pregnant with BJ I had no intention of using bottles {ever}.  I wanted to relish in my stay at home mom status and have a healthy breastfed baby.  Fast forward to my new six month old sweet pea and we where going strong with breastfeeding.  My only problem, I was hogging up my child.  Everyone wanted a piece of him, but it seemed all he wanted to do was nurse.  More so if we where not at home, it was like a security blanket for him.  Our on the go lifestyle wasn’t very on the go for months and months.  My mother-in-law was desperately wanted a relationship with her grandson, but he clung to me and nursing.  I gave in and purchased a breast pump and bottles.  We went through bottle after bottles until I purchased Dr. Browns.  The narrow shape silicone nipple worked wonders.  I am not quite sure if it was the nipple that wasn’t confusing or the fact that Dr. Browns natural flow bottles vent system provides positive-pressure vacuum-free feeding.  But he was sold!  I was able to pump and be on the go with him content having a bottle in place of nursing.

With my last son, I pumped from the get go and he also was a fan of Dr. Browns natural flow bottles.  This breastfeeding and bottle feeding meshed flawlessly for an entire year.

Snack-A-Pillar Stackable Cups

I think the transition to table food is one of the most exciting times.  My little guys where huge snack lovers from the beginning.  To portion control and give them a daily balanced diet I have turned to the stackable Dr. Brown’s Snack-a-pillar cups.  Every morning fill a few cups with their favorite snacks and have them ready for when snack time calls.  They are also great for little dippers.  The spill-proof cups are hold liquids at home and on-the-go.

Dr. Brown’s Training Cup & Divided Plates

 Solid feeding fun with training cups and divided plates.  I love the bright colors, toddler portion dividers, curved sides, and non-skid base of the divided plates.  The BPA free sip-activated valve keeps Dr. Browns training cup spill-proof  and also has an easy flow of liquid.  Activated by babies sucking keeping it mess free when it tips over.

Long Spatula Spoon
