It can be incredibly frustrating to find a bottle that will work not only for you and for your baby, but that is compatible with your breastpump. If you’re constantly uncomfortable, trying to pump bottles of breastmilk for your baby and still trying to parent, then the last thing you want to do is try and juggle containers of milk and pray that you don’t spill anything or make a mess while trying to get your milk into your baby’s bottle. Fortunately, the Medela Breastmilk Bottle is compatible with all Medela breastpumps, so you don’t have to worry about trying to pump, balance, juggle, stand on one foot, burp a baby and pour your milk into a new container without making a huge mess.
This product is great for breastfeeding mommies who still have other things in their lives to do than just sit around and feed their babies all day (which is all of you. Great job, mommies!). Not only will this bottle hook up directly and easily to your Medela breastpump, but it is great for long-term storage. If you need to pump a lot at once, then you can rest easy knowing that you can put the bottle in the fridge or freezer and leave it there until you need it. It can easily be pulled out, heated up and used immediately without any worry that the milk inside has gone bad.
We also love that it makes pumping and measuring so simple for you while you’re going through such an uncomfortable process with your body. The bottles come with colorful ounce and millimeter markers, so you can easily see how much milk you are pumping into the bottle. If your little one is used to drinking a huge bottle at once, then you can fill the bottle all the way up for her. Conversely, if she’s known for being fussy and doesn’t usually finish a full bottle, then you can conveniently see just the perfect amount you’d like to put inside so she can have her whole bottle at once. Although, as previously mentioned, these bottles are made for storage, so if you’d like to fill them all up anyway, then you should have no fear about whether or not your little one will finish her bottle because you can easily pop it in the fridge or freezer without the fear of your milk spoiling.
One of the parents we interviewed had this to say about the bottle:
“The bottles and the caps are so great for pumping and storing milk. It makes my life so much easier to not have to try and move breastmilk from one container to another. There is really such a huge weight lifted off my shoulders by something so small. The storage is also really great. The lids lock tight, and I don’t have to worry about my breast milk spoiling while it’s being stored.”
This bottle is also great for easy clean up and washing. It is dishwasher safe, so all you have to do is take it apart and put it in the dishwasher with no worries. It is also worth noting that all of Medela’s products are made without BPA, so if you’re worried about the safety of the bottles when heating up or running through the dishwasher, you can rest assured that the plastic used is and will always be safe for your baby.
We also really love that the Medela Breastmilk Bottle Set has great screw-on lids that are perfectly designed to prevent leaking in the bottles. They are also tested and approved for storage, freezing, traveling and fussy babies who throw their bottles, all without making a huge mess for you to clean up after. If you’ve had problems with leaky bottles in the past, then this product is one that can make you feel more comfortable knowing that you won’t have to spend nearly as much time cleaning up after a spilled bottle of milk.
We think that the The Medela Breastmilk Bottle Set is a great buy with great value for breastfeeding mothers. Each set includes three 8-ounce (250 milliliter) breastmilk bottles, three screw-on lids that have been tested to prevent leaking, three medium-flow silicone nipples and three wide-base collars and travel caps. This is an amazing value, and we really believe that if you are looking to save money when purchasing your bottles (especially ones that can attach to your breastpump), then this is a great package to look into for you and your family.
