Minbie - Nuturing Baby's Instincts ~ Review

Disclosure: I was provided with the products mentioned to facilitate my review but all opinions are my own.

When it comes to feeding baby it is not always an easy task.  I remember one of the most overwhelming tasks when setting up my baby registry was choosing a bottle.  You have no idea what the differences are and there is an overwhelming amount of bottles and nipples to choose from.  

Nursing is another task that that can be complicated at first but once you and your baby get into a feeding groove it can be the most wonderful experience ever.  The idea of introducing a bottle can sometimes be scary.  Will my baby accept it?  Will they still want to nurse?  All questions I asked myself.  But with going back to work only 5 weeks after giving birth I knew a bottle was inevitable.  

Minbie's significant breakthroughs:

Minbie nurtures a newborns ability to breastfeed by allowing newborns to bottle-feed with the instinctive feeding technique that they are born with.
Minbie supports a newborns digestion by helping to release natural digestive enzymes. This supports a baby's sleep too.

Minbie matches breast and bottle feeding techniques.

We passionately believe that you should be able to breastfeed and bottle-feed your baby.

To help you, we have created Minbie which is a teat designed to support your newborn's instinctive breastfeeding technique. This means that when newborns feed from Minbie they practice the instinctive latch and feeding-action for nurturing breastfeeding. This is a significant breakthrough in matching breast and bottle-feeding techniques and preventing feeding-confusion*.

For newborns who can not be breastfed, we created Minbie to allow them to bottle-feed with the instinctive breastfeeding technique that they are born with because why shouldn't they be able to feed intuitively with the technique that is developmentally right for them and that helps release digestive enzymes for proper digestion of the milk.

How is Minbie different than other teats?

Our research has found that generic and orthodontic bottle-teats can quickly teach newborns a different latch and feeding-action to the newborns natural instinctive breastfeeding technique. This may be sufficient for bottle feeding, but it can cause feeding confusion and problems such as a 'weak latch' and 'lazy feeding' when the baby is breastfeeding.

If your newborn has become used to other bottle-teats, he or she may have difficulty feeding from a Minbie teat. This may be an indication that your baby's instinctive feeding technique has been damaged.
Every feed counts ...

My friends baby was set to review this item for me but due to a family emergency you are just going to have to take my word!  I love that this is a simple bottle no extra parts.  Even though it is simple the nipples innovative design looks phenomenal.  This is a product I wish I had with my boys because it may have helped with the difficultly I had getting my boys to nurse. 

Use Minbie as the first and only bottle teat for your baby to help maintain and strengthen your baby's instinctive breastfeeding technique, the way nature intended. Minbie products are from Australia but they subsidise shipping to the US only charging $7.95AUD ($6.20USD)
