Chicco NaturalFit Line Feeding Review

Disclosure: I participated in a campaign on behalf of Mom Central Consulting for Chicco. I received a product sample to facilitate my review and as a thank you for participating.

Chicco Natural Fit Feeding & Soothing System
As a soon to be mom again I've been on the hunt for baby things. It can be overwhelming, especially with so many brands promising you the best. If I had money I would buy one of everything but I don't and that's why when the opportunity to try Chicco's new line of bottles came up I was so grateful to be able to try them out. 
Our little Jellybean isn't due until February 11th (19 days away) but I do have a niece who just turned 1 and I was able to try one of the bottles and pacifiers with her. The rest are being put away for my baby girl.

The recently released line of Natural Fit Feeding and Soothing System includes 3 stages of bottles, orthodontic pacifiers and teethers. 

Stages of the bottles

5oz & 8oz bottles
Stage 1 - 0 to 4 months:
 Consist of a wide angled nipple and wide rounded nipple base. Which is perfect for us breastfeeding mommies, because the soft flexible nipple mimics the moms breast.
The nipples also consist of two anti-colic valves that prevent air ingestion, gas and spit up. 
Two bottles are available in this stage, bottle 1 is available in 5 ounces and comes with a newborn flow nipple that encourages proper neck positioning for newborns. Bottle number 2 in this stage is for 2 months and up , it comes with a medium nipple and the same angle as bottle number 1 in this stage and is unto 8 ounces.

8oz bottle
Stage 2 - 4m+
Time to transition? Well, Chiccos makes it easy. The bottles in this stage come with a straight nipple that adapts to babies developing feeding skills. The flow can also be adjusted by turning the bottle.
Position 1 is slow, position 2 is medium and position 3 is fast.

11oz bottle
Stage 3 - 6m+
The sucking phase. The bottle in this stage comes with a nipple that is designed to support a strong sucking motion and help support baby's bigger appetite.
Nipple base is smaller and less rounded for tighter lip support which is a must for good sucking action. The nipple also consist of a faster flow rate with multiple holes.
This is the bottle that was tried with my niece and she loved it. We noticed a difference in her sucking motion, which wasn't that hard as with her other bottle and we also noticed that she was less gassy which means that she wasn't sucking in that much air. It really did make a difference.

These bottles are available at one of my favorite stores - buybuy BABY.

As for the pacifiers not only are
they cute but they are also very helpful.
My niece is a pacifier lover and never goes anywhere without her Nuby, but after trying out the Chiccos one, it became her favorite one.
I'm sure you've all heard before how bad pacifiers can be for babies and their teeth development, the great thing about the Chicco ones is that they evenly distribute the pressure of the palate which helps oral development. It also favors natural posture of the tongue and it has a narrow base for optimal mouth closure. The pacifiers are available in fun colors, you have to love that :)

After watching my niece enjoy these products I'm very excited to try them out with our little Jellybean! I love how innovative Chicco is and how they came up with this new line.

What's your experience with Chicco?

Love,
Kary xoxo

Jellybean - Bump Update Week 37


What's Up With Baby:  Baby is the size of Swiss Chard and weighs approximately 6.3lbs (this is according to the BabyBump App). If I used to say that she was active now I'm starting to think that she's way too hyper. Sometimes my belly looks like it's something from a horror movie. The way Jellybean moves and stretches  is crazy and it's even crazier to see how my belly moves. Oh, the miracle of life is amazing!

What's Up With Mama: This mommy is very, very sleepy. Jellybean is a little night owl and there are nights when I'm still awake and actually go to bed at 4 or 5am, I then have to be up at 7:30am to get Munchkins school lunch ready. I take him to school with husband, we walk back home and I get to go back to sleep for a few hours. So grateful for my family that helps me out when I need it the most. There are times when I'm so tired when I have to pick munchkin up from school and my brother, sister, and even my dad (when he's off from work) will pick him up from school. I'm still a little dehydrated. My blood platelets keep going down and they might give me steroids next week, just to be safe during labor. 

Cravings: Clementines, Chocolate, Tangerines, Strawberries and more chocolate!

Exercise: Now that I'm not running anymore, my workouts consist of lots of walking! By lots Ire ally do mean lots. I will walk for 4 hours or more everyday. Good thing for my Mizunos, they have provided me with the perfect support during these past 8 months.

Feelings: I can't believe this pregnancy is almost over and that our little Jellybean will be here any day now. I'm nervous about labor ad really pray that everything goes smoothly and that our little Jellybean is ok. I pray for a smooth, uneventful labor and healthy baby girl.

Bladder: I pee every second! Seriously my bladder was long gone :)

Love,
Kary xoxo

It's The Simple Things In Life

A Target selfie is always in order when you're at your all time favorite store.
I love that when I'm with my munchkin and he sees that I'm about to take a bump picture he runs over to hug my bump and be in the picture. He loves his baby sister so much and anxiously awaits her arrival!
 My biggest blessing and priority is being a mommy, I truly am blessed!!

Love,
Kary xoxo
