Whether for artificial feeding, for delayed breastfeeding or for drinking water or other beverages, bottles are essential elements for the baby. There are different types of bottles to be used during a child’s growth which include the glass bottles, the plastic bottles, and the aluminum bottles. However, we help you to make the best possible purchase.

What should I set when buying a bottle?

- The size: usually ranging between 100 and 350 milliliters. This variation is due to the fact that the baby will need more liquid as it grows. A newborn does not take the same thing as an older baby, who also sucks in a different way. To these standard sizes are added bottles of a smaller size (60 milliliters) designed for premature babies.

- Teats: as in the case of pacifiers, we have latex (rubber) and silicone teats. The first ones are of a yellowish color, very elastic and resistant to pulling or biting. For their part, the silicone ones are a little more rigid and odorless. In addition, being transparent, allow control if they are filled with milk, so that the child does not swallow air that may cause discomfort, such as the feared colic of the infant.

The shape of the teat can be rounded or physiological, adapting to the palate of the baby. Their textures are increasingly advanced, extra-soft, trying to imitate the natural touch of the mother's breast or allowing the baby to feel the warmth of the milk, which provides great comfort.

We can buy the appropriate teats for each bottle separately. Thus, as soon as they show signs of deterioration, we can change them. They are usually presented in packs of two.

- The bottles: Glass bottles are usually more hygienic, do not absorb odors and are also more resistant to constant washing or sterilization, but they break more easily. They are the best choice for 

babies up to four months.

Without a doubt, glass is a good option when looking for reusable bottles. The glass is an inert material, does not alter the flavor or transfer toxic particles to water.

Normally to make these reusable bottles, borosilicate is used, a type of glass that is very resistant and durable. They also usually go with a silicone case to protect them from bumps.

Its drawback is that they weigh more than the rest of the bottles.

As for the shape of the bottle, it is a matter of choosing the one that is most natural and comfortable for you. Mind you, make sure it is practical and functional, and that it can be easily cleaned. For example, wide-mouth bottles facilitate filling and cleaning. On the contrary, in this sense, one should try to avoid those models that have corners, edges or corners where the food can be accumulated with which they are filled. Especially for the first months, you can be very useful bottles that include scales for measuring the content.


Finally, there are bottles that go beyond and incorporate temperature sensors that change color if the liquid exceeds certain degrees, bottles that are heated alone, bottles that minimize the oxidation of vitamins or models that are self-sterilizing in the microwave. Bottle warmers and sterilizers can also be purchased separately.
