I am going to challenge myself...how many times can I say Boob in one post??
I absolutely love that Joovy named their bottles the Boob. I mean honestly, all these silly fancy names drive me crazy, let's call it what we want it to be...just like a boob!
We are still living at the rental condo and all of the baby stuff is still in storage...yes, just a few weeks until she is due and I don't know where most of our stuff is. Not panicking....
I was thrilled when Joovy sent me a set of Boob's!
Granted I haven't been able to use them yet, I already love the concept of these bottles.
As much as I would love to nurse, and I am going to try my hardest, I know my body doesn't produce enough for a baby. I love that I will have a bottle that mimics a boob as much as possible.
The Joovy Boob is the most innovative baby bottle on the market today. The new nipple design, patented CleanFlow Vent System, silicone sleeve, and bottle are state-of-the-art and use today's best design and materials.
The Boob stands up to repeated sterilization, will not absorb odor or color, and is BPA, phthalate and lead free.
Something that really excites me is that it has a 1-piece CleanFlow vent and is easy to clean. No assembly needed and no need to touch any part that comes in contact with the milk or formula.
The best part, the nipples have been designed to make transitioning from breastfeeding to bottle-feeding and back again, an easy and natural process. The large diameter base and nipple length assist your baby in properly "latching" onto the nipple. Nipples are available in 4 flow rates, they are molded, not cut, with the appropriate size hole and are tested for consistency throughout production. They also take the extra step of baking the nipples. Baking strengthens the silicone to help prevent nipple collapse while providing constant softness.
Even though I plan to nurse, I know I will be pumping as well. With Eliza I pumped, not only to try to help my supply but also to give Mark the opportunity to bond with her through feeding. I want Mark and Eliza to be able to have that bond with Emelia too.
Joovy has come up with a Breast Pump Adapter that is just genius! When you are a mom that has to pump for immediate feedings, vs storing, it is so nice to be able to only dirty one bottle. It used to drive me crazy that I had to pump into one container and then transfer it to a bottle. What mom has the time to do all of those dishes? Another great piece, if you do want to store the milk directly in your Boob, you can! Just toss on one of the Sealing Caps and put it in the fridge. They couldn't make this any easier for us!
The Boob Breast Pump Adapter works with most major breast pumps. It is compatible with Medela, Lansinoh, Playtex, Evenflo, Ameda and Simplisse. It is not compatible with Avent.
Speaking of cleaning bottles, there is nothing I hate more. Trying to get a sponge in there never works. I don't like sponges in general, they are just big germ pads to me!
Joovy has the Boob Bottle and Nipple Brush that fit perfectly for their Boob. The Boob Revolving Brush and Nipple Brush are ergonomically designed for fast, simple and thorough cleaning of bottles, sippy cups and nipples.
Instead of using sponge material that harbors bacteria, they use soft nylon bristles that easily clean all bottle components.
Wash the bottles, sippy cups and nipples using hot soap and water. Insert the large Revolving Brush into the bottle and rotate the brush to thoroughly clean. Use the small brush to clean nipples. It's that easy.
Are you ready to purchase some new Boobs?? They have quite a few options but this gift set is my favorite! You can go right to Joovy and purchase a set of Boobs today!
I am so thankful for these Boobs! Not only do I now have peace of mind that I will have something to use to feed Emelia if she comes early, I also know it will help prevent nipple confusion and help form a bond for Mark, Eliza and her.
PS...I said Boob 16 times, wait that makes it 17 :)
