Minbie reviews(6 Posts)
Trying to get my ebf dd (6months) to drink from a bottle ready for when I go back to work 🥺
These bottles are supposed to be amazing for breastfed babies, has anyone used this brand, has it worked for a bottle refuser?
Looking for some feedback before I buy one 😊
I've not had one but I went back when my last was 9 months and she just drank for a cup at childcare, just like my first had done at 10 months.
Honestly, I wouldn't stress too much over different types of bottles at this age
Useless. Like every other bottle I tried.
As above both DC just used cups once in childcare and breastfed at home.
At this age I'd focus on cups not bottles. My LG refused bottles but would drink milk out of a cup
No good for my bottle refuser. I spent so much on different bottles trying to get him to accept one for nursery and really hoped that Minbie would be the answer - my FB feed was full of their adverts, promising miracles (and breaching the WHO code) but it was just another ~£15 wasted. He never did take a bottle, and just ended up having food and water from a cup on nursery days.
Didn’t work for us at all, in fact I have one that has literally never been in his mouth as he point blank refused if you want to PM me your address you are welcome to it for free. It’s had milk in it obviously but never been drank from.
For what it’s worth though my ds is 9 months now and been bottle fed since 6 months- I’d tried since about 4.5 months to get him on a bottle buying a million different bottles and thinking it would never happen. The latex test NUK bottles are what worked in the end. Got him to take a dreamfeed with them from daddy and then one day I decided it was the day he would have bottles thinking we’d have a huge fight in our hands and he just drank from them like he always had!! So if it’s something you really want keep persisting it can work.
