I am super excited to be a part of the Munchkin LATCH campaign. Their LATCH bottles and pacifiers are the next best thing to a mother’s breast. I am ready to meet my baby girl anytime now. Tomorrow, I will be 39 weeks pregnant and I think I have everything ready: the nursery, the hospital bag, baby safety and cleaning products, breastfeeding accessories, clean baby clothes, and my Munchkin LATCH bottles and pacifiers. They are ready in the sterilizer just in case I might need them.
I plan to breastfeed exclusively, and I am now more aware of the benefits than ever. No formula can even come close to breast milk. I know also, as this is my second baby, that breastfeeding is not always easy. Breastfeeding is hard work, it takes time and patience, but we mothers can all do it if we have the right information and determination.
At the beginning some mothers could experience several problems like for example the baby not taking the breast right away or needing an extra feeding if mom’s milk hasn’t come in yet. Munchkin LATCH eases the transition from breast to bottle and back. These wonderful baby bottles were developed by Lactation Consultants and they mimic mom by releasing more breast milk as baby pushes against the nipple’s base.
Most mothers give up breastfeeding in the first month for concerns and worries that are for the most part lack of support and information. If you are expecting and want to breastfeed your baby, please get lots of help. Call a lactation consultant, attend breastfeeding classes, and join a support group. If your baby was perfectly fed inside of you then you are also capable of feeding with your breast milk.
Look at the wonderful BPA free LATCH bottle design. The accordion-style LATCH nipple flexes as baby moves her head, allowing her to maintain her latch while decreasing ingestion of air. Plus, the anti-colic valve located at the bottom of the LATCH bottle allows for breast milk to flow while ensuring air bubbles don’t travel through, reducing gas and fussiness.
Munchkin bottles are design to feel like the mother’s breast. They are also great for working moms who go back to work after three months and have to pump. I know from experience that when baby gets used to the mother’s breast they won’t want to take a bottle. Munchkin LATCH bottles resemble the mother’s breast and will make the transition easier for your baby.
LATCH is available at Target and Babies’R’Us. You can also pick and choose your bottle size and nipple stage to perfectly suit your baby’s feeding needs exclusively on their website and save up to 15% off your LATCH bottle purchase. Please visit the Munchkin website for more information.
I will keep you posted on my new adventure soon! Having a 4 year old boy and a brand new baby girl will be hard work. I also really hope breastfeeding will be easier this time with baby #2. I am sure Munchkin LATCH products will help in achieving my breastfeeding goals. Wish me luck.
