Munchkin are a brand I love but they have gone one step further now with Munchkin LATCH. Munchkin has reinvented infant bottle feeding with their new LATCH range.
Munchkin‘s goal is to help new mums reach their breastfeeding goals and the revolutionary Munchkin LATCH bottle feeding system is designed to offer mum everything she needs to make the transition from breast to bottle feeding as natural and comfortable as possible, for both mum and baby.
LATCH is the result of a 3 year programme of in-depth research, and testing. The LATCH feeding system has been developed in partnership with Lactation Consultants, Midwives, Health Care Specialists and a panel of Experienced Mums.
What makes LATCH so different to other feeding systems is that the LATCH teat has a truly innovative accordion base that moves, stretches and pumps, just like the breast, ensuring baby establishes and maintains a proper latch and continuous connection to help reduce the symptoms of colic. As baby grows, so does the LATCH teat range. Stage 2 and 3 teats allow Mum to increase the flow as baby’s feeding demands increase.
The slow flow rate of the LATCH teat mimics mums’ breast milk flow for a more natural feed, whilst the unique anti-colic valve on the base of the bottle ensures air bubbles do not pass through the milk, reducing the risk of colic.
The LATCH accordion-style teat and anti-colic valve system offers a truly natural feeding experience because it:
1. Helps baby sustain a NATURAL LATCH: Experts agree a proper latch is achieved when Mum’s nipple reaches all the way back to baby’s soft palate. The unique accordion-style teat on LATCH gently flexes and stretches like the breast helping baby to latch correctly
2. Provides a more NATURAL FEEDING experience: When breastfeeding, baby controls the flow of milk by applying pressure to the base of mum’s nipple. The LATCH bottle mimics mum by compressing to release more milk as baby pushes against the teats base, for a comfortable and fulfilling feed
3. While feeding, provides NATURAL MOVEMENT as the accordion-style teat flexes as baby moves her head providing a continuous latch, reducing the ingestion of air. The one way, easy to clean anti-colic valve located at the base of the LATCH bottle allows for milk to flow while ensuring air bubbles do not enter the milk or travel through it.
The LATCH feeding system is such an innovative product that is unlike anything I have seen before in the baby feeding market. When I had LP I was worried about things like nipple confusion and didn’t use bottles at all. With Little Man I only used them when I really had to be away from him for a few hours. I would have loved for LATCH to have been around when I was starting breastfeeding – It sounds like LATCH would work well alongside breastfeeding and would be a fantastic product however you decide to feed your baby.
