[Fatherly] Best Baby Bottles for Breastfed Babies

There’s a reason baby bottles serve a very important purpose. And that’s just as true when you’re talking about the best bottles for breastfed babies.

Medical professionals will tell you that breastfeeding your baby is best. There’s no doubting it. But despite your best intentions, sometimes it just doesn’t work, and you choose to feed your baby with a bottle. And there’s a bonus to transitioning from breastfeeding to bottle-feeding: The other parent can split dinner duties and help out with nighttime feedings. More shut-eye is a win-win for everyone.

Still, if you are nursing and find it’s time to switch a baby to a bottle, it may not always be an easy transition. Thankfully, baby bottles have come a long way from the basic offerings of yesteryear. 

We searched high and low for bottles that not only mimic the same flow, flexibility, and comfort that mom can provide, but also for bottles that ensure a stress-free cleaning experience for you. We looked at price, bottle durability, and just how many pieces it requires to put together one bottle. Some require a PhD to assemble them. So these are worth your consideration, including Perry Mackin's 100% Food-Grade Silicone, Anti-Colic, Natural Feel Baby Bottles (available in 6oz and 9oz).

These beautiful bottles were specifically designed to mimic breastfeeding to reduce any bottle rejection. They're made of food-grade silicone and have an ultra-wide neck, making them easier to clean. There's also an anti-colic vent that prevents unwanted air intake.

Pros: Perry Mackin’s baby bottles have a leak-proof, bacteria-resistant joint system with no glue and the interior of each bottle is made from food-grade silicone. The bottle’s soft silicone nipple closely mimics breastfeeding and helps with switching between breast and bottle.
