Product: Podee Baby Bottle
Price: $13.99 for a single bottle
$15.95 for a twin pack
I am sure that every mom since the beginning of time has wished that she could grow another arm, but as a mom of multiples, I think I NEED another arm. When my hubby is gone to work or when we are driving down the road and both twins decide to be hungry at the same time, that need is more apparent than ever.
Enter the Podee bottles.
The Podee is basically a nipple on a straw that attaches to a bottle. It allows for upright feeding (think: fewer ear infections, feeding in carseats, strollers, or bouncers/swings) and hands-free feeding.
To get the bottle ready for babies, you have to fill the tube and nipple with milk. If you want to, you could suck the milk (or formula) up the tube and into the nipple with your mouth. I’m hesitant to do that, so I spent some time figuring out how to do it without my mouth. I squeezed a lot of air out of the nipple, covered the end of the nipple with my finger, and allowed the nipple to suction the milk up the tube and into the nipple. Then I held the nipple lower than the bottle, squeezed the end of the nipple and let milk fill the nipple.
The entire system is then air-free.
My kids can hold the nipple in their mouths without any help.
The bottles are BPA-free and recyclable.
Unlike “bottle buddies,” there is much less choking risk involved here. Babies can spit the nipple out if they are overwhelmed.
We can feed them in the car without stopping.
The bottles don’t spill when they are upside down.
There is very little waste. The design of the bottle allows the babies to suck up every last drop. This matters when you are using breast milk.
The baby (or babies) swallow less air than with a traditional bottle.
The bottles are intimidating. They aren’t very user-friendly when you first open the package. It takes practice.
You can’t sterilize all the bottle parts.
These bottles aren’t for everyday use for my family, but when I do need them, they are an absolute lifesaver. I have already recommended the Podee bottle to another mom of twins, but I would recommend them to parents of singletons as well. Not having to stop right away when driving is outstanding. When we get to a gas station we burp and change diapers, but this cuts our stops in half when we are on the road.
I give the Podee four out of five stars, because some of the parts can’t be sterilized. Other than that, this system is outstanding.
