The World’s First Air-free Feeding System Now Available For Retail Purchase Nationwide
The bio-inspired device features syringe-like technology to eliminate air inside the bottle and an extending nipple that mimics mechanics of breastfeeding. Available now in Babies “R” Us stores.
“After several years of hard work, we are pleased to bring this new air-free feeding system to the market to make moms' lives easier,” said Priska Diaz, mom-inventor, founder and CEO of Bittylab. “By observing my own breasts and nipples while breastfeeding, I realized that delivering air-free milk to the baby was crucial in order to avoid gas and colic. A mother’s nipple extends up to three times inside the baby’s mouth while feeding; therefore, BARE’s breastfeeding line features the Perfe-latch®
The innovative design includes a self-adjusting Air-plug® (a watertight & airtight seal) that allows the air to expel out of the bottle before feeding, like a syringe. Once baby begins to feed, the Air-plug moves inside the bottle automatically, keeping the contents without air. This way, the milk chamber is always air-free. BARE works with suction, independent of gravity, allowing baby to feed in a natural upright position, which is recommended by pediatricians to prevent ear infections, painful gas, acid reflux symptoms and over-eating. It also promotes self-feeding and an easier transition to cups. BARE is made of FDA approved, BPA-free, durable, safe materials, and is user friendly and dishwasher safe.
“In an independent trial of 200 babies, we found that babies with diagnosed acid reflux and GERDS showed up to 95 percent of symptoms improved after feeding with BARE for a couple of days. Some babies were even taken off the GERDS medication prescribed by their doctors,” says Diaz.
In the same trial mentioned above, we found that babies who were never able to breastfeed (due to numerous issues such as mom’s low milk supply, poor latching, nipple confusion, etc.) learned to latch on the breast after using BARE with Perfe-latch nipples and were able to reinstate breastfeeding even after three to four months.
