In order to achieve your breastfeeding goals, you may choose to express your precious breast milk and store it so that it is always available when your baby needs it – even if you are away or if your partner wants to feed your little one.
It is recommended that you spend six to eight weeks establishing a regular breastfeeding pattern before you introduce a bottle. It is also a good idea to discuss all of the options with your health visitor or breastfeeding counsellor as they will be best placed to advise you as to when is the best time to introduce a bottle as this will depend on your individual situation. It is also important to feel safe in the knowledge that your baby will go back to the breast upon your return, so choosing the correct feeding bottle to avoid nipple confusion is vital.
Lansinoh’s mOmma Glass Feeding Bottle with NaturalWave® Teat has been specially designed so that your little one can enjoy your expressed breastmilk even when you’re apart. Based on more than 50 years of research, the NaturalWave® teat promotes your baby’s instinctive sucking action for natural oral development, which helps you switch easily between breast and bottle so that you can maintain your established breastfeeding patterns.
Extensive research has revealed that a baby’s sucking style is very different to an adult’s and involves three key steps. These are the initial latching on, the peristaltic tongue movement (in which your baby’s tongue moves in a wave-like motion), and swallowing. It is very important that a baby is able to perform the peristaltic tongue movement as it encourages natural oral and jaw development.
Lansinoh’s NaturalWave® teat is clinically proven to encourage this natural feeding pattern.
Why glass? Glass is the most inert material used for baby feeding bottles. There is no molecular transfer of any kind between the contents and the feeding bottle itself which makes it easier to clean and sterilise. The Lansinoh glass feeding bottle is made from a special type of material called borosilicate glass. Borosilicate glass is less dense, more resistant to thermal shock and often used in laboratories. It’s also better for the environment as it’s 100% eco-friendly and 100% recyclable.
