Isla Loves: Dr. Brown’s (Giveaway)

October 13, 2014

One of the things an experienced mom will tell you when it comes to bottle feeding a baby is that you need to have a number of different bottle brands for your little one to try, as the silicone nipples are different shapes and sizes and you don’t know to which your baby will take. We bought three brands, and Isla would only drink from her Dr. Brown’s bottles – specifically the pink Natural Flow ones. The internal vent system works to mimic a mother’s breast production (watch this video), and the only negative thing I have to say about these bottles would be that I couldn’t figure out how to assemble it the first time (total new-mom-brain!). We were also gifted the Dr. Brown’s bottle warmer at one of my showers and love it. It’s small, easy to store in a kitchen cabinet and quick to heat up a bottle for a hungry baby.

Dr. Brown’s kindly sent me a few other products to try, and I have to genuinely tell you… I’m a serious brand lover now. Isla absolutely loved the PreVent Contour Shield Pacifier. The contoured surface makes it easy for Isla to keep the paci in her mouth. I love all of the colors and designs that the pacifiers come in too.dr. brown's bottle pacifiers gia pillow nursing breastfeeding wipes review baby girl

Anyone with a pacifier-loving baby will know about the frequency of it hitting the ground. A self-declared anti-germaphobe, I will implement the 5-second rule and suck it, then give it back to Isla. However, I don’t have to freak Sasha out by doing this anymore thanks to Dr. Brown’s  Pacifier and Bottle wipes. I was totally sold the first time I tried them. They are made with the all-natural/plant-based Xylitol and are unscented. We also started using their Tooth & Gums wipes, which taste like heavenly grape (both Sasha and I also tried them on ourselves!). Although Isla doesn’t have any teeth yet, she is teething, and these wipes help to create a healthy oral environment for when the teeth appear. Lastly, we received the Nose and Face wipes, which are perfect for dry noses (think soft, moist baby Kleenex). I know everyone swears by the Nosefrida, but let’s just say that your baby will be less adverse to these wipes than having boogers sucked forcefully out of their nose!

Last, but certainly not least, the Gia Nursing Pillow. This pillow is so smart. Other popular nursing pillows are u-shaped, with the same size and height on both left and right sides. The Gia nursing pillow’s patented angled design positions baby at an incline – which is perfect for us, as Isla has very bad reflux (think lots and lots of throw-up) and our pediatrician told us to keep her head above her stomach while feeding.  The only negative about the pillow is that you have to turn it, in addition to your baby, when changing sides. This isn’t an issue when you are bottle feeding though!


I’m excited to be teaming up with Dr. Brown’s to give away a goodie bag that includes:

I was given these items by Dr. Brown’s for my review. I was allowed to keep the products, but the opinion I am sharing remains my own.

    I will be honest when the NICU recommended Dr. Brown’s bottles I thought to myself “who in their right mind would want touse these bottles, there are so many pieces to clean”. However, after usung them I fell in love! I don’t think I will ever use any other brand.

    We are definitely brand groupies over here too. We love Dr. Brown’s everything! I haven’t tried the wipes (because I do the exact same thing you do after the paci falls to the floor) but I’ll have to try the tooth and gum wipes! That’s kinda genius if you ask me!

    I love dr brown bottles.. I bought like 4/5 different types of bottles for my little one. We tried every one of them. The only ones she would use was Dr brown.. I think that dr brown was the best choice to. Shes now 4 1/2 months old and we still use dr brown bottles.. I even order her some of the wide neck bottles about 2 months ago, she loved them!! So we have the clear, pink, purple, and the wide neck clear!! I would recommend dr brown bottles to everyone.. If I was to ever have another baby dr brown is what we would use!!! I love dr brown!!!

    My 2 month old baby girl (also Isla) loves Dr. Browns bottles and I will never use another brand! They have helped her little tummy so much and we went from extreme spit-ups and a tight, hurting tummy to rarely spitting up and a happy little girl with no tummy aches!

    We love Dr. Brown bottles! My 4 month old is the only one of his cousins that hasn’t had colics, but he is the only one that has used these bottles!! So I definitely recommend them! I would love to try the pillow and pacifiers!

    My baby started to be colicy around 2 months. I had born free, avent, and tommie tippy bottles and nothing worked. I decided to try dr.brown bottles and im proud to say i would never go back to any other bottles. These bottles really helped with my baby ingesting less air and helped him burp quicker resulting in less tummy pains and cramps. Im so grateful for dr.brown!

    Love Dr. Brown’s bottles, both my boys had colic & these helped a lot with that. I’m currently due in November with my first girl & if she is anything like her brothers I know these would be great to have. Thanks for doing this awesome giveaway! 🙂

    I used Dr Browns for my son who is now 2.5 and now my daughter who is 9 weeks. While they arent perfect because we still had reflux issues and could see the air bubbles he was drinking while being ct scanned and drinking from it they are however the better choice that seems to be out there after trying pretty much every brand. Even after all that we still are a strict Dr Browns user. 🙂

    I love Dr Brown’s bottles! My 1st dtr had 3rd degree GERD & these were the only bottles my pediatrician recommended to control it and she was right! This was the only bottle that helped cut down on the regurgitation. My dtr due in Dec will only use Dr Brown’s!
