My 3 Tips for Finding the Right Baby Bottle

The search for the right bottle for a new baby can be a long one. Every baby is so different and even as they grow, their preferences can change overnight. There are so many bottles on the market all promising to do different things, so I'm going to share with you what I looked for and why I'm recommending the Baby Brezza Bottle (they are sold at Buy Buy Baby and at Walmart)


1. Find a bottle that is EASY to clean with as few parts as possible - Many of the bottles out there, specifically the one's designed for anti-colic, have 3, 4 even 5 different parts. No one wants to be taking apart a 5 piece bottle to clean multiple times a day. The Baby Brezza Bottle, for example, is an anti-colic bottle with only 2 parts and a TruFlo Vent System to minimize colic and discomfort from gas so there is no need to give up function for simplicity. You can have it all in a bottle with Baby Brezza!

2. Find a bottle that mimics the shape of the breast and nipple for an easy transition in feeding - Whether you are breast feeding, formula feeding or both, any bottle that closely resembles the natural breast will make your feeding journey easier. It means your mini will inhale less air while drinking and will have an easier time switching back and forth from bottle to breast. The Baby Brezza Bottle has an ultra wide mouth and a breast-like nipple which will help avoid nipple confusion!

3. Make sure the bottle you ultimately choose is easy to hold, both for you and your mini - the shape and weight of a bottle is so important. You will be using bottles for the first year, if not longer of your baby's life, and the ultimate goal will be to teach your baby to feed themselves. A bottle that is too heavy, too thin, too wide or an awkward shape will not only be a nuisance for you, but will make it difficult for your baby to learn to be self-dependent! The Baby Brezza Bottle has an ergonomic design that is easy to hold and it is super light weight making it great for every stage of feeding!


We loved that the Baby Brezza Bottle was easy clean with only 2 parts, was light weight and easy to hold, and that the shape mimicked the natural breast so Zane hasn't had to deal with extra gas from air intake. The cute sayings on the bottom were just a bonus!! 

These bottles are sold at Buy Buy Baby and at Walmart!

bblüv Üvi 4-in-1 UV Sterilizer for Pacifiers, Bottles and Sippy Cups!

As a new mom, I'm always looking for that must have product that will make my life easier. When I was pregnant, I started making my list and sent my husband shopping as soon as baby Zane arrived (I'm a bit of a procrastinator and probably should have bought it all before... my poor husband lol). I was super surprised to discover that there was a portable UV sterilizer that no one had told me about! Available at Canada's Baby Store, the bblüv Üvi 4-in-1 UV Sterilizer is a gem that has changed my day-to-day as a mom completely! You can scroll to the bottom of this post to see my video review :)


This amazing product is about the size of an orange, super light-weight, and runs on 2 batteries. It can easily fit into any diaper bag, purse or kitchen drawer. In 3 minutes, it kills 99.9% of germs and can be used on pacifiers, baby bottles, bottle nipples, and sippy cups! It's as easy as placing it on top of the bottle/sippy cup, or inserting the pacifier, pushing a button and then waiting 3 minutes. No more carrying 4 pacifiers everywhere you go incase your little one decides to throw it on the ground, no more worrying about how to sterilize bottles when you're on the go... the 4-in-1 UV Sterilizer does it all. I will never leave the house without it, and I can't wait to take my next road trip or flight. Zane - bring on the pacifier throwing! I can handle it now :)

The only question I have is: Where has this product been hiding? Because every new mom needs one now! Click here to visit Canada's Baby Store.
