"Just Right": Why Your Picky Eater Should Try Mason Bottle

When I hear the term “picky eater”, I think of my younger brother whose dietary mantra was “nothing that grows” until the age of 11. As sustainable as a diet of crust-less PB sandwiches and Yoo-hoo is, it sure made my mom miss the good-ole baby days of simple feeding from a bottle.

So this means newborns and babies are easy, right? The “picky eater” gene doesn’t develop until they are well into their toddling days, right? 

Wrong. The truth is that babies can be just as choosy when it comes to bottle feeding. Rats. 

Just as your infant is special, unique and one of a kind, so are their bottle preferences.

Honestly, all of the searching for the perfect bottle and nipple combo can leave you feeling like Goldie Locks on the hunt for the perfect the ideal bowl of porridge.

The secret to any amount of change is a smooth and natural transition. When introducing a bottle, you and baby both will be more comfortable if the nipple is familiar and more breast-like.

Looking for nipples with a wider base and soft feel will give a more natural shape that could help your baby take to the bottle. When designing Mason Bottle, the wide mouth of the mason jar naturally lent itself to a wider nipple….score!

Mason Bottle nipples also come in several flow sizes so as baby grows and their feeding taste changes, so can their bottle and nipple.

While we’ve done everything we can to make the best bottles and the happiest babies, we know that even Mason Bottle may not be your picky eater’s bottle of choice. That’s ok.

But while some bottles may be too fast, others too hard, and others too who-knows-what…ours could be “just right.”

Give us a try! Order your Mason Bottle products now and see if we’re your baby’s choice (before the family of bears comes home).

"I wish I knew about these before I had my shower, and avoiding all the plastic bottles I ended up with. They will also make great glasses after bottle use is over. Also happy to see the Made in the USA mark on the product as well." -Cathryn


Easy to Clean

"The next best thing to breastfeeding and the world's best shower gift! I love that I will never again have to buy a baby bottle because I already have tons of mason jars and they are so easy to clean. Our little guy loves his bottle!" -Susan


Breast Like Shape

"The nipples are very wide, like on an actual breast, and our daughter really liked them. Early on, she would suck really hard on the other nipples and make a very strange noise. As soon as we changed over to these her feeding became effortless." -Denielle
