Chicco NaturalFit bottles are unique because they offer an extra-soft silicone nipple that allows for easy breast to bottle transition. Since we breastfed and supplemented with bottle feeding, so my hubby could also bond with our son, we needed the perfect bottle. Chicco NaturalFit is just that. The feel of the nipple is so much like the breast that he would never get confused, or have issues. It was the perfect fit for us, and it allowed my husband to get bonding time with our son as well, and me those extra few hours of sleep!
Chicco NaturalFit come in three stages. Stage One is the Newborn Flow. This is a wider, rounder base which will encourage little ones to latch on properly and adjust their neck to ensure optimal feeding technique. The nipple stays full of milk because of the angle, so your baby won't get air. Therefore, the risk of air indigestion and belly aches will be reduced significantly. Twin anti-colic valves will help your little one reduce the risk of air indigestion, colic, and spit up. You want feeding time to be bonding time, not unpleasant! Available in 5oz.(newborn flow) and 8oz. (medium flow) sizes.
Stage Two is The Adjustable Chicco NaturalFit. These come in Slow, Medium, or Fast 8 oz. bottles. Your baby is advancing, so the bottle is too! This nipple is straight with a rounded base and adapts to your child's skills. At a little over four months, your baby has better control over their neck and head positioning, and colic symptoms subside. This bottle allows you to adjust to your baby's needs, the nipple flow rate is controlled by your child's hunger.
Once your little one gets bigger, the bottle has to adjust even more! The Stage Three, Fast Flow is an 11 oz. bottle. This is designed to accommodate your baby's size and strength when they are latched on and eating. The smaller and less rounded nipple is perfect for tighter lip support and encourages your little one to swallow properly. At this point, their sucking is becoming more efficient, so a proper bottle is very important. This comes in an 11 oz. bottle with a fast flow nipple. A Y cut nipple is available separately.
