The No-Nonsense Baby Registry Series: Lifefactory Bottles

Thank you for joining me for my No-Nonsense Baby Registry Series
where I’m highlighting my favorite baby items from a mom-of-3 perspective! By ‘no-nonsense’ I simply mean ‘everything you need minus
the extras that will collect dust and waste money.

I introduced this series with my most favorite, most useful, and the most well-made baby item that I have ever had: The City Mini GT Double Stroller by Baby Jogger. You can read about it here.

Next on my list are Lifefactory glass bottles.

I
really wanted to get glass bottles to avoid feeling like I was
poisoning my baby with some sort of unknown-hazardous chemical in the
plastic (which I did with my first two. Google BPA.). The
only glass bottles I had see before were the Dr. Brown’s bottles and Evenflo. And honestly, I think both of these brands look great. My only problem stemmed
from the fact that a friend of mine had her baby over my house and she
dropped the bottle on the ceramic kitchen floor and it shattered
everywhere. Enter the silicone sleeve. Baby Girl is 6 months old now and I have dropped these bottles countless times and I have NEVER broken one. Enough said.

For new moms wondering how many to put on their registry, I purchased 3-4oz and 3- 9oz. This has been perfectly adequate. I also purchased 2-2-pack Stage 2 nipples, and 2-2-pack Stage 3 nipples
(they come with Stage 1). I am also really excited that these bottles
transition into sippy cups by simply swapping out the nipple with these sippy caps!

Since we’re on the topic of feeding I
would love to say that I was able to breastfeed my little ones, but
unfortunately I had complications with all three. There are some moms
out there who CANNOT breastfeed and so far I am one of them. I saw countless lactation consultants
and even visited a lactation clinic with my first daughter where her and I were examined and no specific problems were diagnosed. Through
my own research I have concluded (unfortunately too late) that the pain I experience while
nursing is due to this
particular affliction.

It often hurts me to hear moms bash bottle
feeding and be so critical of other mothers. I do agree that breastfeeding is best, but there is a need to
be sensitive to everyone’s situation and not be a breastfeeding bully 😉

 Happy feeding!
