After a very long 4 months of sleepless nights and constant crying, our once colicky & acid-reflux prone baby is doing better than ever. But still, two months in the clear, I can’t help but feel saddened that I wasn’t able to relieve his terrible pains and discomfort during those first 4 months of life.
As a breastfeeding and breast-pumping mama, I strongly feel that breast milk is the perfect food for our babies. Sure, coming straight from the breast is best, but when compared to manufactured formulas, I’m all about serving the boob juice any which way you can – finger, cup, eye dropper, bottle – whatever gets the job done while supporting breastfeeding gets props from me.
That’s why I’m so very excited about a new baby bottle that is being developed, called BARE Air-Free. BARE™ is a designed by a mom and is a revolutionary new baby bottle that truly prevents gas and air from being ingested by your precious baby. Designed to work just like a mother’s breast, BARE trains baby proper latching and self-feeding, prevents bacteria (no air means it’s challenging for bacteria to thrive) and a favourite feature for busy (and who isn’t?) moms – is simplified bottle cleaning.
The BARE™ Air-Free Bottle:
Prevents gas and air ingestion with syringe-like dispensing technology
Teaches baby properly latching with expanding nipple that mimics the movement of natural breast
Eliminates “lazy” and comfort feeding with natural, slower flow and characteristics that mimic breastfeeding
Simplifies bottle maintenance with snap-on one-piece nipple and collar and dishwasher-safe parts
Prevents bacteria by minimizing backwash
Promotes self-feeding by allowing baby to drink from any position
Supports your values by being made in the USA, BPA, PVC, Lead & Phthalate free and supporting green corporate initiatives
BARE will be available on store shelves in January 2012. Because the development and production of BARE is being funded by the mom inventor, I hope moms and moms to be will visit the BARE project page at the fund-raising site, Kickstarter and support the project. In doing so, you will be the first to receive these new, revolutionary bottles – along with various rewards through backing the funding:

BARE Air-Free Bottle is the only one in the market with a one-piece silicone nipple, certified chemical-free and approved by the USA FDA.
This nurser goes beyond a nipple design by creating a system of technologies that work together to mimic the breast. From nipple response, areola shape & texture, milk dispensing, latching process, to milk storage & milk delivery without any air to prevent gas & colic with maximum nutrient retention. It’s moving bottle feeding closer to what nature intended. “Your breasts don’t have air-vents, why should bottles?”
