As Lauren mentioned earlier today, moms with young babies will do well to plan ahead and simplify for the holidays. She mentioned some great ways in which she is going to make this Christmas a little more peaceful and a little easier on Mom.

It’s important to keep in mind that some ways that are easier for some are not necessarily easier for others. For instance, let’s consider feeding. I breastfed all my babies. That worked well for us.

But, I have known many moms for varying reasons for whom exclusive breastfeeding was not a realistic or preferred option. In their lives as MOM, bottle-feeding works for them.

Steribottle can make bottle-feeding easier.

Steribottle has been popular in the United Kingdom since 2000. Now, it’s come to the New World.

Here are some of the advantages of this disposable and recyclable baby bottle:

  • No need to wash or sterilize – just open the box, take out one ready-to-use bottle and nipple, fill, and feed.
  • Perfect for traveling – when you don’t want to take a full kit of bottles and sterilizers with you. And there’s no need to carry home half-finished bottles that have been sitting around for hours – once you’ve done feeding, just dispose or recycle.
  • Ideal for those 3 a.m. feeds when you don’t have any clean bottles and just want another 10-15 minutes of rest. Steribottle helps you feed your child and get back to sleep faster.
  • Perfect for daycare too because Steri-bottle is a single-use bottle that features a locking cap so you can be sure your baby gets the feed that you’ve prepared.

Each package comes with complete bottles and nipples that are ready to use, BPA-free and phthalate-free and 100% recyclable.

While I didn’t use bottles for my babies, I must confess one of the reasons I resisted bottle-feeding, even part-time, was the hassle washing bottles appeared to be. This appears to me to be a great solution to that dilemma. And in examining the Steribottle product up close, I see a quality bottle and nipple.

I think these could be a great asset for grandparents and daycare providers to keep on hand. If you know you’re going to have babies staying with you over the holidays, it couldn’t hurt to have a box on hand. Moms who bottle feed may want to keep a pack in their emergency kits as well as in the car for those days when you just don’t have the time to mess with washing bottles. And these would make great baby gifts as well.

This week five readers will each win a 10-pack box of Steribottle Ready To Use Baby Bottles.

  25. I like to give a tub full of assorted baby products, such as diaper cream, wipes, lotion and baby wash. It gives the mom a head start and lets her try different product she might not have otherwise known about.

  26. I love to give layette gowns. They are perfect for nighttime changes; who wants to fool with all those snaps?!?!? Also give Resinol, it always worked better than diaper ointment on my babies.

  27. Jennifer Ott says:

    I like giving a “diaper bag kit” with some of those essentials nicely packaged up: shout wipes, ziplocs, extra outfit, wipes, infant tylenol, tissues, trail mix of belly bars (for mamma), etc.

  28. I love to pick out a cute outfit and also give a mesh feeder. Various other fun items get thrown in too, but those two are pretty constant.

You stick bottles and all the breast pump stuff in it and its sterlized in minutes without having to boil water, etc – a lifesaver with a summer baby!

  87. I live in Scotland, and I used Steri-bottles while on holiday, and they were great, especially the no sterilising part!! My baby was 10 weeks.

  123. I like giving practical things: diapers, lingerie bags to collect the itty-bitty socks and my new fav are those Medela ‘sterlization bags’ – SOOO nice for the middle of the night feedings, or for traveling!

  124. My favorite baby gift to give is diapers! At my stage of life, most of my friends are on their second or third (or more!) child so they have all of the basics already. Also, it’s been fairly easy to get good deals on diapers laterly so I can get more for my money and still give a nice gift that will definitely be put to use.

  125. I like to give books that my son has enjoyed thus far. You can never start reading to your children to early.

  126. I love to gift a homemade baby wrap πŸ™‚


  127. I subscribe via Google Reader


  128. I make diaper cakes! I start with size2 diapers for the lowest tear and work my way up to newborn. Then cover the cake with themed goodies. Rattles, pacifiers, bottles, and wash clothes etc. I worked in an infants dept for a while and lots of people would ask me what to give to an expecting mom, I told them if you know lots of people are getting diapers and clothes, then think about mom. Get her some goodies to keep here from having to miss time with the new baby. Or if there are other kids already buy things to keep them happy while mom’s busy with the baby. And last but not least buy things that are needed for a slightly older infant. After all newborn is not the only size it will wear! lol

Thanks so much for participating in this conversation about "a mom's life."

This is a place where moms can be themselves. Remember that each mother's path looks a little different. Please keep your comments respectful and kind. Reasonable minds will disagree in a nice way.

So let's talk about it, using "our big girl words."
