Ranked in these QuestionsQuestion Ranking
Pro Useful for moms who pump breastmilk
The rim of Medela bottles fit many types of pumps for collecting breastmilk. You can pump breastmilk into these bottles, use them for storage in the freezer and heat them in the warmer when it's time to feed your baby. This is more convenient than pouring milk from separate storage bottles to feeding bottles.
Pro Great for long-term storage of breastmilk
They are designed to withstand the extreme temperatures of freezers and bottle warmers. You can directly store your pumped breastmilk in these bottles and place them in the freezer for a long period of time. This eliminates the need of purchasing a different set of storage bottles.
Con This bottle's nipple is not similar to the breast
When switching between breastfeeding and bottle feeding, you'll likely succeed with bottle nipples that are more like natural breasts. However, the Medela nipples are small, unlike a mother's nipples which are usually elongated. Also. the milk flow from a Medela nipple is fast and does not mimic the natural slow flow of a mother's milk.
