Hi, I'm Erica in Salt Lake City, Utah, and I'm going to talk to you today about how to choose the right baby bottle. There are so many options out there. I'm just going to show you some of them. Be sure when you start your baby on a bottle that you start them on a slow nipple. You'll want to check the package for "slow," and it will tell you the age (0-3 months), and this is usually the best for the infant. If the nipple is slow, it will reduce the chance of choking for the baby and it will be easier for them to get used to drinking out of a bottle. As the baby gets older, there are faster nipples that you can graduate them to once they are ready. There also different sizes of bottles. There are small bottles when your baby is very small, so you can just fill it up to 2-4 ounces if you need to. There are also bottles that have a curve that actually helps the air stay out of the nipple so that the baby will get less gas. They won't have as much as without this type of bottle. With older babies, you can use any type of bottle because they will usually get rid of the gas on their own. For infants, be sure to get ones that are specifically made for infants and that give a little extra help preventing the air so that the baby does not get gas.
