Munchkin Latch BPA-Free Baby Bottle Review

MunchkinThe Munchkin Latch BPA-Free Baby Bottles are designed to help all mothers transition their babies smoothly from breastfeeding to bottle feeding. A better latch helps babies adjust to bottle feeding and, thus, provides a comfortable feeding time. This set contains three Munchkin latch baby bottles of 80 oz. each. The bottles have been designed to give a natural feeling to the babies and help them feed peacefully and in a relaxing manner. These bottles are designed by experts to prevent feeding problems such as colic issues, gas, reflux, spit-up, and nipple collapse.

 

Better latch

The Munchkin latch BPA-free bottle has an accordion-style nipple that provides the perfect latch to babies. Babies get used to breastfeeding because they can easily latch onto the breasts, and this latch replicates this function. The nipples of these bottles also are designed to mimic the natural breast shape and function. During breastfeeding, the babies apply pressure on the breasts to feed themselves, and the nipples of this bottle function in the same way. As the baby applies pressure on the nipples, they release more milk. They also stretch like breasts and provide an easy latch to the babies so that they can feel comfortable. These nipples are also designed to move according to the baby’s head movements. Due to their accordion style, the nipples keep moving as the baby moves their head, thus maintaining the latch.

Anti-colic valve

There is an anti-colic valve located at the bottom of the bottle, which prevents colic problems in babies. This valve allows the baby to ingest more milk and less air since air is the main reason that causes gas issues in a baby’s tummy. This anti-colic valve also prevents bubbles from forming in the bottle. Even if the bubbles are formed, they can’t travel through the bottle and reach the nipple. The anti-colic characteristics of this bottle prevent oxidization of milk, which normally occurs in regular bottles when the air and milk come in contact with each other.
