Chicco NaturalFit Review

I received a sample from Chicco for the sole purpose of this review
Chicco is a popular name in Baby Gear and has been for quite some time, BUT they have recently released a new feeding system and I was fortunate to try it all out before it even hit the shelves. It's the NaturalFit line and includes feeding and soothing items. 

I received 4 bottles and 2 different kinds of pacifiers to try out. The system is designed to grow with baby so you will see a few different posts from me over the course of the next 9 months or so!

 The new system has 4 different bottles for different age groups. The first step is the 0-4m nipple, it comes on a 5oz bottle with a newborn flow nipple and an 8oz bottle with a medium flow. It features an angled nipple which stays full of milk and doesn't allow for air ingestion.

 It also has twin anti colic valves.
 I personally love the angle. It has flexors on it that allow for maximum elasticity and also the nipple is flexible and it mimics the breast.

We are breastfeeding, but have tried a few different bottles with Liam, just about a month old. But this is the bottle he takes too the most. Maybe he likes the nipple best on it since it mimics breastfeeding, but we have bottles he has completely turned down and he likes this one the most.

We also tried out 2 different kinds of pacifiers. These Deco Pacifiers in a 0m+ and also an orthodontic silicone pacifier in a 0m+.

Both styles feature an angled nipple which allows the baby's tongue to be evenly distributed and also ridges which allows for natural positioning and movement of the tongue.

The Deco pacifiers have extra soft silicone which adapts to the unique shape of baby's mouth.
Out of all the pacifiers we've tried, this is also one that he takes to the most. 

Each size in the Deco Pacifiers comes in Pink, Blue and Neutral colors. 

So far we love both the bottle and the pacifiers. I reach for my Chicco bottle every time we go to use one, every time it's clean I put breast milk in it and have it ready to go for the next bottle feeding. I love having it on hand and ready to go and since it's the one he likes the most, I know we won't have any fighting feeding with it.

Chicco NaturalFit bottles have 3 stages total. Stage 1 is with the angled nipple and it's the squeezing stage. It encourages a proper latch. At this stage babies don't suck as much as they squeeze, so this nipple is designed for that. 

Stage 2 is an adjustable nipple which is pretty awesome, it has 3 different flow rates to adjust to baby's needs. It has a nice rounded base for baby's developing skills. 

Stage 3 is a fast flow, elongated nipple and less rounded base which supports the older baby's sucking motion.

I will review stage 2 and 3 as we get there and will have posts to coincide with them!

Also included in the new NaturalFit line are Teethers, nursing pads, bottle brush, bottle/baby food warmer, microwave sterilizer and more.

Price: They can be purchased at buybuy Baby. The 3 pack of 5oz stage 1 bottles are $21.99 a single is $8.99. 2 pack of pacifiers are $5.99

Overall: ***** so far! Can't wait to try the next stages!
*Disclaimer* I received an item directly from Chicco in exchange for a review. I was not paid to try out these products*
A big thank you goes out to Chicco for allowing me to review this product

Oh my gosh!! This is just the review I needed to read! I will be a first time Mother this July, and will be breast feeding, but need a bottle for baby when I have to work (wedding photographer) but one that is the closest to breastfeeding as possible (and easiest for him/her to take. I will definitely be registering for these in hopes that they work!! Thank you so much!
