Calming Colic & Reflux With Nuby {Giveaway!}

The type of bottle you choose for feeding your baby is one of the biggest decisions you make in helping your baby feel comfortable. Although Finley has been our easiest baby so far, our babies are usually colicky, gassy and come equipped with acid reflux which makes for a lot of fussy feedings. Whether you are formula feeding or feeding your baby pumped breast milk, the type of bottle you use has a big impact on their little tummies.
In January, Nuby is releasing an all new bottle that helps combat reflux and colic called The Comfort 360 Plus and we had the opportunity to test it out before it is released. Not only is the design totally up my ally being simplistic- with no characters on it but this bottle actually worked for us. Finley has been the least colicky out of all our babies but she does have a little reflux and plenty of painful gas. The bottle has a silicone dual-vent anti-colic nipple which reduces the amount of air your baby ingests. Anti-colic valves in the base of the nipple and silicone nipple rim base allow air to flow into the bottle and way from the fluid that your baby is ingesting. This reduces the amount of suction your baby needs to apply and decreases the amount of air ingested. 

The coolest thing about this bottle is the weighted straw that plugs into the nipple using only two parts, not only making it easy to clean but it also allows you to use it like a regular bottle once the baby grows out of the colic/reflux stage by Just simply unplugging it.
So what's the point of the straw? It is recommended to feed babies upright to help reduce the risk of reflux so the weighted straw allows for for an upright feeding. Weight at the end of the straw follows the milk, which means you can feed in any position that's most comfortable for parents and baby. 
This alone has helped Finley tremendously. Being able to feed her in a more inclined position in addition to keeping her upright for a while after a feeding helps so much with reflux and I actually it noticed it has helped with her spitting up as well.

Nuby comfort 360 plus bottles will be available at Babies R Us starting in January!
