Has anyone ever tried the bottle that is shaped like a breast? How did baby take to it? My ds only gets one bottle per week at the most, but I saw this bottle in a catalog and I can't help but be intrigued.

Thanks!

I've never used it, but I know 4 moms who have. All four said the nipple is exactly the same as the Playtex disposable Natural Action nurser's. (the latex one) It's got a really long stem and a squared off end. All of them wished they'd hadn't wasted the $$ on it. The baby doesn't even "latch" on it like it would on the breast.

3 of them also mentioned how ridiculous it looked and their DHs' wouldn't be caught DEAD in public feeding the baby from the "fake boob". One of my friends husbands even went so far as to place it on his bar as a "decorative peice". LOL!!

Still, my nursing SIL went ahead and got one...Her DD used it once, refused it, her husband laughed at it and now the DOG loves his new "toy". Eeek.

If you do get one, let us know how Grant takes to it and what DH thinks of it!
