When I was building my baby registry there was absolutely no question that I would have Dr. Brown’s bottles on that list. Too many moms that I know and trust used or are using Dr. Brown’s bottles and it was a no brainer for us too. I love that the products are made to reduce air bubbles and keep milk and/or formula as “whole” as possible by minimizing oxidation. I don’t know if Simon has a sensitive tummy or not, but I wasn’t willing to test it out. I can tell you that he very rarely spits up and almost never after a bottle.
We have both plastic bottles and glass bottles, but we LOVE the glass. They feel really sturdy and with the sleeve protector there’s no fear of breakage. They are extremely durable – we put them in the dishwasher multiple times per week (with the sleeve on) and have had no issues.
Simon has been using Dr. Brown’s bottles since he came home from the hospital. We breastfeed, but when he gets a bottle from dad or the nanny it’s always a Dr. Brown’s bottle. Now that he’s with the nanny Monday-Thursday he is getting many more bottles and has never had an issue with the Dr. Brown’s bottle.
The bottles pictured are the 4oz glass bottles, which we’ve loved for our current needs.
In addition to the bottles we have also loved our Dr. Brown’s bottle warmer. The bottle warmer is really easy to use and, as new parents, it was nice that we never had to guess the right temperature for Simon’s bottles. I feel really comfortable that I always know that no matter who is giving Simon a bottle, it’s the right temperature (whether it was pulled out of the fridge, freezer or room temperature to start).
My only complaint is that the 8oz glass bottles don’t fit in the warmer with the sleeve on.
I was given some of the Dr. Brown’s pacifier and bottle wipes as part of a shower gift and I carry them in my diaper bag. Simon LOVES to play mommy and daddy fetch these days so I am often wiping off pacifiers or teething toys – these wipes come in handy too often.
I hadn’t used the Tooth and Gum Wipes or Nose and Face wipes until receiving them from Dr. Brown’s, but we’ve been using them occasionally and Simon seems to like them. I’ve since added the Nose and Face wipes to the diaper bag – they’re great for cleaning up messy faces or runny noses.
Last but not least, the Dr. Brown’s pacifiers…I was a bit hesitant to try a new pacifier when I opened these, but Simon really likes them! He took to them right away and kept it in his mouth for a long time! I think it may have something to do with the length of the pacifier. Either way, I am not complaining – I am thrilled that we’ve found another pacifier that works to keep his fingers out of his mouth (which is his preference these days).
I have partnered with Dr. Brown’s to offer my readers the chance to win some Dr. Brown’s goodies of their own. Trust me, you don’t want to pass this one up – you’ll love Dr. Brown’s if you aren’t using the products already.
US and Canadian residents can enter the giveaway below for a chance to win everything in the picture above: 2 8oz glass bottles with sleeves, a bottle warmer, wipes and pacifiers.
The giveaway is open to US and Canadian residents only. Good Luck!
I was given glass bottles, sleeves, wipes, pacifiers, and a bottle warmer in exchange for my honest review and giveaway. I was already using most of these products before they were sent to me – all opinions expressed are my own.
