How it works

When young parents hear the word colic they feel concerned. Colic causes a level of discomfort which can make babies go into prolonged crying, and there is no certainty to what causes it through many blame build-up of gas. We know a baby with gas is an uncomfortable and unhappy baby and any product able to counter this discomfort in babies is certainly a product worth considering to purchase. The Dr. Brown brand specializes in designing bottles for babies which give an improved feeding experience and contribute towards alleviating the potential of colic. This innovative approach involves baby bottle vent tech. It’s a two-part patented internal vent which regulates and creates positive flow through a vacuum system which works to prevent air bubbles which are seen as a cause of gas build-up in babies.

This means milk freely flows without the potential of the nipple feeder collapsing because the channeled air passes through a vent set-up designed into the back of the bottle and does not mix with milk which prevents oxidation. This process also eliminates the potential for bubbles of air and it will also aid in maintaining the balance of essential vitamins such as E, A and C.

The bottles are baby friendly, phthalate, lead, PVC and BPA free to ensure lots of safety for a baby. They come in sets of five bottle sizes, two durable baby safe silicone nipples, three small brushes for cleaning the synthetic nipples, and two safety travel storage caps. The system copies the natural process of breastfeeding and this means this product is designed to work towards preventing colic problems while allowing the baby’s digestion system to naturally develop.

Materials and features

Materials and features

This is a set of five bottles and two types of nipple design covering newly born and older, up to around six months of age. Within the package upon delivery, you can find two brushes for cleaning stowed away inside two of the bottles. The bottles are made from baby safe materials which are BPA free plastic and durable safe silicone. The set has two four-ounce bottles, three eight ounce bottles, five nipples at level one which is the slower feed rate for babies up to three months old. There are two nipples for babies from three months up to six months of age and three steel based brushes for cleaning, and two travel-storage caps.

The bottles work in the same way as natural breastfeeding and create a safer vacuum system for feeding. This is for the aim of preventing gas, spit-up, and colic, because the vent tech takes away air from the feeding process and promotes a more natural flow of milk, this means that babies can be fed at a natural flow.
