1.0 out of 5 stars Pointless gimmick - failure as a product, 13 July 2014
By 
This review is from: Breastflow 9 oz BPA-Free Bottle (3-Pack) (Baby Product)
Failure as a product. Very disappointed! Would not recommend - save your time and money. It's very gimmicky and does not live up to its promise. To mimick the breast flow a tear should have a design to make the baby work for it - suck hard and in a certain way using their tongue. Issue with most bottle teats is that milk just flows if only tilt the bottle down, so baby makes minimal effort to feed making breast less appealing to them. Plus re sucking mechanism is different so that can confuse them (only at 1st though). This bottle and teat are misleading an don't do what they promise. There are two teats that makes it look like it's designed to make baby suck as on the breast to actually get milk flowing, but it's just an illusion. If you tilt the bottle down the milk comes out on its own flowing from one tear to another and filling out the larger one. It may give the initial delay in timing of the milk getting to baby's mouth since the 2nd teat is a small barrier and needs to be filled up, but it is only a small Initial delay nothing more, over the period of feeding baby does not need to suck harder or differently to any other bottle. The outer teat has a tiny "nipple" whereas real nipples get elongated and pushed all the way to the back of baby's mouth during breastfeeding. This teat clearly cannot do that. It's messy, leaky an results in a lot if wasted milk. Really frustrating if you are using expressed breast milk - such a waste!! Baby simply stops sucking and gets very irritated when the main bottle is drained but there is still a lot of milk collected in the outer teat, so all that milk is wasted. And like many other reviewers mentioned the bottle just leaks - how hard can it be to design a proper fitting teat? In my opinion, this is just a gimmick and the over- design is there just to provide the appearance but Not the performance. Last point - when I
