Not too late to know that MAM baby pacifiers helps to prevent sudden infant death syndrome (SIDS) in children and MAM baby bottles are good for jaw strength, good for tongue training and speech development. A great insights today with Mrs Lee, Director of Nuline Products Sdn Bhd. My kids are now too old for a pacifier or bottle, but this is a good topic that I want to share with you today.
How to train baby drink water from cup?
Have you experience baby use straw and water will spurt out from their mouth as they yet to learn how to swallow. Having a good training bottle could help and baby (of age 3-4 months) should be able to get the concept by 2 months of using training bottle. Once they know how to drink water, usage of bib is not necessary as they would know by then how to swallow saliva.

How does MAM Baby bottle differs with the others in the market?
MAM Baby bottles have this vacuum function and avoid more air going in the bottle. This will prevent colic in babies, and no burping baby is required. We are advised to buy a smaller bottle so that there is less air in the bottle. Many of us often get a big bottle in order to save, but it's not suitable for baby, as it will make them sucking more air instead and will lead to colic.
The teats from MAM Baby bottle assembles mother teats like breastfeeding. Mirroring the same function, baby will have to suck and use their tongue to push the milk out, giving a tongue exercise every feeding. This action is good for speech, and for elder children (ie 6-7 years old who are still on bottles) with speech delay, this method could put to use.
Mrs Lee shared the fact that babies who are breastfeed up to 2 years old would have a better jaw development, and they have lesser tendency to do teeth braces in their adulthood. Breastfeeding or using the MAM Baby bottle teats that resemble breastfeeding, gets baby to exercise their jaw frequently hence the wider jaw, higher cheekbones too.

How often do we need to change feeding bottle?
If there are sign of pull and stretch mark is noted, most likely when baby turns 14 months due to chewing. Else, advisable to change every 3 months.
Sterilize MAM Baby bottle is pretty simple. The old method of heating it in hot water is too hassle and cases when we are not at home to use the sterilizer, we can sterilized in microwave on the go. Look out for some convenient store or cafe with a microwave.
Here how it works. Fill about 20ml water on the base of the bottle, stack the bottle like the below image and put in microwave for 3 minutes and it will be self sterilised.

Pacifier has been an important baby needs in European country. Pacifiers aren't just for soothing colicky babies but the use of a pacifier during sleep reduced the chances of a baby suffering from bury their face in soft bedding that leads to sudden infant death syndrome (SIDS) by 90 percent.Baby will normally give up on pacifier naturally by 3 years old.
