Nuk first choice vs Tommee Tippee closer to nature bottles
I knew I would try to breastfeed Daisy but thought I would need bottles if it didn't work out or if I expressed or even combi fed her. Fortunately the feeding took off beautifully albeit a tad painful those first few weeks. I expressed a couple of times in the first few months mainly when I was engorged but we also had a period of giving Daisy her evening bottle so Ben could do it.
She always fussed a little bit with the bottle and it always seemed hard work for her. I then got lazy and didn't offer bottles for around a month. When it came to introducing them again it was awful, she point blank refused at first! She would scream until she was sick. Each day I just kept trying her with two ounces to see if she would get used to it, it was hard going. That will teach me for being lazy and confusing the poor little lady!! It took around a month but she then started to take four ounces (that's her limit for some reason, boredom maybe), slowly and with fussing but it meant I could start not to panic too much about leaving her and even returning to work soon.
Then this month we got sent a NUK first choice bottle in our Nonabox (see link here). If I'm honest I'd never have picked it up off the shelf, it's got green rims and features Winnie the Pooh on it. I've since looked and they do some lovely versions which are much more my taste.
I tried her with a few ounces in it as a test and she downed it in minutes! It takes her ages to have a few ounces in the Tommee Tippee, so slow that she gets bored and gives up after four usually.
I wish I'd tried the Nuk earlier!!
Lots of love,
