Closest bottle to boob that I've ever seen.

This is the closest bottle that simulates a breast that I have seen, and I've shopped around. There have been a couple close ones, that my babies have grudgingly taken, but they have both been discontinued, so I started looking again for this baby's bottle. 

I think these look great! I wanted to share with you ladies, too! I just ordered two, myself. 

My breastfed babies have always had such a hard time taking a bottle, and honestly, even the "breast" ones still are not close to the shape of a boob, a nipple, and especially not the color. Here's hoping this bottle will be a much smoother transition from breast to bottle and back again. 

(We had to supplement my nursing with a specific medical grade formula for at least one extra meal with both my babies due to severe acid reflux, which is why they went back and forth from bottle to breast. I'm just trying to be prepared this time around since baby#3 will likely be drinking from both as well! )photo MimijumiBottles.jpg
 
Uncommon Goods used to sell them, but they don't anymore. I did a search on-line and found another retailer, though, thankfully. There are more than one. :)

Re: Closest bottle to boob that I've ever seen.

  • Not to be overly snarky, but my boobs don't look like that...similar color, but not long pokey nips like that.

    Thanks for the info though, although it did come off a little sales pitchy...

    PP Have you ever breast fed before? Your nips may not be pokey until after baby has stimulated them. Maybe TMI but I was pretty shocked how long and pokey they would get after nursing my first baby. What I learn with my first baby was that I had to try several bottle nipples until I found one she would use. My DD was picky and disliked bottle feeding.

    I was being a bit tongue and cheek. I was more commenting on the "buy now and get two free [only pay separate shipping and handling]" tone of the post. I doubt she meant it to come off that way, but I'd be lying if it didn't make me think does she sell this stuff?

  • Good to know. I've never had much success doing both. Will probably try this time simply because I'll be going back to work, so there'll need to be a backup. Saw some in Tj Maxx, but usually if they end up there, it's not around a lot anymore!

  • I used the Adiri bottles for DS and they are very similar to the breast also! They aren't breast color but we were very happy with them! Just thought I'd throw that out there.

    I agree with Mrbates.  The tones of the post was salesy/spammy.  I don't think the OP necessarily meant it that way but that's how it came across.

    And I will hold you closer
    Hope your heart is strong enough
    When the night is coming down on you
    We will find a way through the dark"
  • Good to know, I will have to bookmark this for later.  I plan to BF, and have also noticed that none of the bottles I've seen are shaped anything like a real boob/nipple.

  • I used "Adiri's" last time but I had a problem with them leaking & they're not as firm as real breast so the latch wasn't true. Ended up switching 2 days later to "Momma" bottles and those we're a big hit. This time around i'm eyeing the "Comotomo" bottle, since my youngest will have just been weened from the bottle I don't want to bring this baby home and give him/her the same bottle that I just took away. And I just like the look/feel of the Comotomo's too!
  • I saw the Comotomo's, too, but then they were already being discontinued at my Target and their shelf spot was empty. I have found most breastfed-like bottles don't last too long in stores, which is why I try and buy as soon as I find one that I think I'll want to use.

    I also saw that this particular bottle was already discontinued from Uncommon Goods, which is why I bought now from elsewhere, and why I posted here, to give ladies a chance to consider it and buy it before it was unavailavle in the U.S. (It's a Swiss product.)

    Just trying to be helpful! That is all. That's a shame you think a SAHM who is just giving a recommendation based on having two babies go from bottle and breast, and why this would work as a good option, is read into as being more than that.  I didn't even give the store I bought from, just told you to find one you liked yourself, so certainly no benefit or kickback to me in anyway at all.  

    Again, I just thought I was being helpful and informative, since there have already been a couple posts asking for bottle recommendations from STM+ moms. That's what this board is all about, right?
