BPA Free Baby Bottle for Twins, Triplets, Octuplets, and Parents of Multiples by Podee® International

I can see it somewhat for multiples but anyone else it just bothers me...

Looks interesting. Might have been useful when I had my twins. Sometimes it was tough trying to juggle two feedings at once.

I can't see the real need for it without multiples.

I can understand it for twins or more but for one....seriously?!? What a shame that mothers feel like they can not take time to contact feed with their baby.

The only thing I would have considered such a thing for was car driving while alone IF my child would have calmed for a bottle....as he HATED the car...but alas...again, even giving him a bottle of BM while Dh drove did no good, so I am certain this wouldn't either. The only thing that ever worked was actually nursing him while someone else drove & that wasn't even always enough.

I breastfed so I never had never expected to need my hands, but I was wondering if any other parents ever just propped the bottle? When I worked with infants, that's what we did. Got four crying babies? Prop the bottles with a balled up baby blanket. By the time the kid is sitting up, he or she can hold their own bottle. Why would we even need such a product?

They don't recommend bottle propping anymore, especially with small babies. It is illegal here for a daycare to do it. They also aren't allowed to swaddle or to let a baby sleep in any device (swing, bouncy seat, etc) so even if the child falls asleep there, they are to be removed....supposedly it is dangerous. I am not sure why...

But anyway - they also have devices that suspend a bottle from the handle of a carrier.. Adorable Monkey Baby Bottle Holders. Entertains & Holds Bottles Hands Free. Great Gift for Twins. I am not sure they are any better.

I could only nurse for 6 weeks, then switched to formula feeding due to DD's needs. I don't intend to criticize anyone who uses these devices, but I'm proud that I took the time to hold my baby and every. single. bottle. Of course I was at home and able to do so. DD took 45 minutes or more to drink many of her bottles but I think how lucky I was to be able to spend that much more time holding her and loving her, and even how lucky she was to be held by her mama that much more.

I just think it is a product of our society....it is very sad. And I was a bottl feeding momma with my son. I have to say we held all his bottles...until he stopped taking it at 14 months(just a few weeks ago). Even now when I can I hold him while he yakes his sippy cup.

I am guilty of giving Jonah his bottles in the car, several several several times. I hated it, but I often had to. It was the only thing that would calm him. I would have felt better if I could have used this kind of a bottle, although I don't see much of a difference between this and a propped bottle.

Beck, at the daycare I worked at, we were allowed to swaddle, but would get into major trouble if we got caught doing the other things you mentioned. Propping bottles can cause choking, and actually if you read the warning labels on the swings and bounceys, they say not to let the baby fall asleep because their head could plop forward, blocking the airway. If it weren't on the labels we'd be allowed to do it. Some babies would ONLY sleep in the swing or bouncey though, so we fudged it a bit
