12 milk bottles mums like

One mother actually spent the first seven months of her son’s life scouring the shelves in search of the perfect milk bottle for her baby.

            Recalls Constance Tung, 35, mother to Dylan Lee, now 2, “He was fed with expressed breastmilk as he didn’t want to latch on. However, it was a nightmare trying to find a milk bottle and teat he was happy with — I tried many and mixed different brands of bottles and teats together!”

            Advises lactation consultant Fonnie Lo, a senior parent craft services manager at Thomson Medical, “To prevent nipple confusion and rejection of breastfeeding, all mothers should breastfeed their baby exclusively for the first month before they introduce bottles.”

            Then let your baby decide what bottle he likes, even if that means a few misses before you hit pay dirt.
