boob shaped bottle

(at least they don't come in a selection of skin tones...yet!)

Freaky indeed.
What gives me the creeps is the tagline on one formula 'Now even closer to breastmilk'

Urgghhhhhhhhhh!!!!!!!!

starlover Tue 28-Jun-05 21:36:02

hehe yeah, although there are a couple of people on here who have used them when trying to persuade b/f baby onto bottle... very succesful by all accounts!

Libb Tue 28-Jun-05 21:37:49

I suppose it makes sense . . . .

mogwai Tue 28-Jun-05 22:25:48

can't you get a bottle in the shape of a cow?

MrsGordonRamsay Tue 28-Jun-05 22:27:35

Wish I had those when I had to BottleF DS at 7 days old

No

If it comes closer to the boob than a bottle and yet holds formula what is the issue ??

Fio2 Tue 28-Jun-05 22:34:48

oh I wish my breasts l;ooked like that

bosscat Tue 28-Jun-05 22:35:26

I think its quite sweet actually. What's so urggggghhhhh about it? Oh sorry I forgot, that was written by someone who had to move rooms in hospital because they couldn't bear the sight of bottle feeding mothers (yawn)

MrsGordonRamsay Tue 28-Jun-05 22:36:57

You are joking Bosscat ??


Please tell me you are joking....

Caligula Tue 28-Jun-05 22:41:44

Wierd, but bloody brilliant if they mean that when you're having a problems breastfeeding, you can feed a newborn expressed milk without having to cupfeed/ spoonfeed. From the blurb, they say that it's ideal for switching between breast and bottle - does that mean the baby has to use the breast-feeding technique to get the milk out?

bosscat Tue 28-Jun-05 22:44:16

okay I'm joking
Loving your husbands work by the way

MrsGordonRamsay Tue 28-Jun-05 22:52:14

Did you see him tonight, did you, did you, he was so masterful..................swoooooooooon

marthamoo Tue 28-Jun-05 22:54:31

It's just a bit synthetic boob for me - like groping someone else's. Can see the benefits of course.

Janh Tue 28-Jun-05 22:55:05

It looks like a Playtext teat, and they claim to have to be sucked the same way as a breast.

MrsGordonRamsay Tue 28-Jun-05 22:57:06

Well MMoo

When you go in to Hospital, determined to BF and you leave with a permanent heart condition and life long dependency on tablets, you would try anything no matter how synthetic it looked.

Walk a mile in my shoes.

handlemecarefully Tue 28-Jun-05 23:10:26

My first reaction was ...ohhherr wierd.

My more considered reaction is - I guess it has it's place.

handlemecarefully Tue 28-Jun-05 23:12:42

Hope my post wasn't insensitive to you MrsGR

marthamoo Tue 28-Jun-05 23:12:52

I really didn't intend to upset anyone - kind of sorry I posted it now.

Fio2 Tue 28-Jun-05 23:14:59

oh moo, dont take ity to heart love

morocco Tue 28-Jun-05 23:26:53

these bf threads!!
anyhow, having looked at the picture, I can tell you now that it is certainly not what my busom looks like - I'd be stabbing dh with nips like that! I hope they have a range of designs so the saggy breasted among us don't get offended (mine have headed a looooong way south)

MamaMaiasaura Tue 28-Jun-05 23:30:28

doesnt simulate my breast shape - poor ds was a lot more swamped that that!!

misdee Tue 28-Jun-05 23:31:46

i'd need 3 to make up one3 boob
