We are always looking for anything to simplify our lives over here. Brian found the Bebe Bottle Sling, and decided to give it a shot.
The verdict is…..worth the money! Brian ordered them off Amazon for $13 each. Sounds like a lot when you are buying four of them, but try feeding quads!! We like to feed them all at once so we can finish the process in an hour or less. These slings are easily adjusted for height and help the bottles stay in their mouths so they can keep drinking while we monitor them, or burp or change another baby. They aren’t foolproof, as the babies still push the bottle nipples out with their tongues at times, but overall they help. Once the baby and bottle are positioned in such a way that the bottle is angled toward their mouth for good milk flow, and can easily sit right in their mouths, they are ready to go!!
Can feeding be done without them? Sure, but it’s not quite as easy!
