Playtex Drop-Ins Bottles
Who hasn't lost a bottle while it still has formula (or breast milk, or later on, juice) inside? I swear our couch has a magnet system underneath it that sucks the bottles under. I just came across a "not-a-Playtex-Drop-In" bottle that I could have sworn I left behind at a Halloween party! I of course threw it away, because that's nasty, and I'm not cleaning it out.
Had I used a Playtex Drop-In Bottle, I wouldn't have had to thrown it away! My favorite thing about them is the liners. Seriously?! Why did I even use the "not-a-Playtex-Drop-In" bottle for his first 4 - 6 weeks of life? Besides the fact that it was smaller, and I like the silicone nipples, they're so messy and hard to clean. (When you don't own a bottle brush!) Playtex are the way to go! I have used Playtex Drop-Ins for both of my boys. I have to say that Holden, our 8 week old son who is exclusively formula fed now, is much less gassy when I feed him with the Playtex bottle verses the "not-a-Playtex-Drop-In" one. They're so easy! You pop out the old liner, give ithe bottle and nipple a quick rinse in hot water, slide in a new one, and Voila! Ready to use again, without taking 10 minutes to clean it out with a sponge, or, my version of an improvised bottle cleaner: a wooden spoon with a dishcloth wrapped around the handle. :)
For ease of use, easy-to-clean, not to mention, very-much-like-a-breast-nipples, Playtex Drop-Ins are the way to go! They're now BPA free too! Always a plus in my book.
