You may think naming a bottle a boob is a weird thing to do, but Joovy (known for their “oo” product line might have hit the nail right on the head with this name. Breastfeeding my babies was something that I felt really strongly about. I worked very hard to establish a good breastfeeding routine after rough beginnings with both of my babies, so the last thing I want is a product that is going to take away from the latch that we worked so hard to get right. That is why I was excited to review the boob bottle.
The Joovy boob was actually designed with breastfeeding moms in mind. They created a nipple that promotes a wide latch for baby and makes the transition from bottle to breast and breast to bottle easy for both mom and baby.
How Did They Do That?
The nipple was designed from a soft silicone to best simulate natural breastfeeding. The wide base helps promote a wider latch which will help baby transition comfortably from breast to bottle and back. Not only are the nipples made of silicone but they are actually baked which helps prevent nipple collapse. You can buy nipples in 4 flows:
- Stage 1: Slow Flow 0+ months
- Stage 2: Medium Flow 3+ months
- Stage 3: Fast Flow 6+ months
- X-cut: Extra Fast Flow for Thicker Flows 6+ months
The CleanFlow Vent Technology:
Made of soft silicone and hard PPSU plastic the CleanFlow vent has 4 vented spaced openings which allows baby to get a good flow no matter how they hold the bottle. The silicone stays sanitized because the user only has to touch the plastic ring to install the vent technology. The ring fits simply on top of the mouth of the boob bottle and prevents the user from over or under tightening. Proper venting of the bottle prevents colic and inner ear infections.
Check out my video for my full review:
The Joovy Boob comes in 5 and 9 ounce bottles and prices start at $9.99 for bottles and $3.99 for accessories. If you are a breastfeeding mom, you do not want to miss purchasing the pump adapter that allows you to pump from any major breast pump brand directly into your bottles. This is what I do every single morning.
So far this is the only bottle I’ve even had a small amount of success bottle feeding my son with. I am hoping after my husband returns from deployment he will start giving baby a bottle at night and we will see better results. Regardless, I love that Joovy saw a need for a bottle tailored to breastfeeding moms and designed a simple, easy to use bottle made from quality products! No matter if you are breastfeeding, formula feeding, or doing both this bottle is great! (Not to mention, very easy to clean!)
