    Default WDYT? Self feeding bottle

    Personally, I don't understand why anyone wouldn't make time to sit down, cradle their baby and feed them by hand. This new bottle design seems lazy to me! I do understand that we as patents get busy at times, but c'mon!

    Thoughts?

    Can't see image but can only imagine. I would not feed my baby like that.

    Yeah, not for me. I'd prefer to sit down and feed my baby, in saying that, I do understand that people have things to do and can be busy with multiples or what not but I personally would not use one.

    These bottles have been vital in using with some children who have feeding challenges and issues.

    In that instance they are very good. As an everyday day thing I personally wouldn't. I loved the cuddles that came with bottle feeding.

    I breastfed my son and will breastfeed the next one. If I was unable to produce milk and had to bottle feed, I would be certainly hold them for while they had a bottle.

    They look pretty cool I'd only use it occasionally since I also like to hold and cuddle my babies while they drink their bottles, but I can see times it would be really handy (like during long car trips etc).

    I don't like the idea in normal circumstances. Although a little different I can't stand seeing young babies with bottles propped up.

    I'm a cuddler so I wouldn't use it, but I can see how it would be useful for bubs with feeding issues!

    Some of the testimonials describe giving them to babies in car seats etc- it doesn't sound any safer than propping a bottle- a choking hazard. While I can see they may help some people with special needs, for most babies I don't think I like these. Whether you breast or bottle feed I think it's nice to hold, cuddle and bond with baby during feeding. And I think it's important.
