It takes just one internet search and about five seconds to find out how overwhelming it can be to create your baby shower registry. There are so many gizmos and gadgets available to monitor, play with, and care for our little ones these days, it can be hard to know where to start. One thing you can be sure of, though, is that if you will ever need to bottle feed your baby, you will need baby bottles and the accessories that make using and cleaning them a whole lot simpler.
Instead of taking a lot of time to sort through the individual items, you might consider putting a few gift sets on your list. Gift sets simplify the buying process, putting your necessities into nice, neat packages so you don’t have to overthink too much. Plus, it’s often more economical!
Check out these five gift sets from Dr. Brown’s®, featuring the enhanced Dr. Brown’s Natural Flow® Options+™ Narrow and Wide-Neck Bottles.
What makes the Dr. Brown’s® Options+™ Narrow Bottle Gift set the perfect gift pack? Besides the fact that it features our internal vent system that’s clinically proven to reduce colic, this gift set grows with baby! Start off with the newborn-sized 4 oz/120 ml bottles and as baby gets hungrier, level up to the 8 oz/250 ml bottles. When they’re is ready to take on their first sippy cup, the 6 oz/175ml Dr. Brown’s® Soft-Spout Transition Cup offers the perfect spill-proof, easy-grip way to do just that. The included Bottle Brush makes cleaning a breeze – not to mention the fact that all parts of the cup and bottles are dishwasher (top rack) and sterilizer safe. And when you have to feed on the go? Replace the nipple and vent with the handy Storage Travel Cap for mess-free trips.
Rounding it out is the Dr. Brown’s® flexes™ textured teether, there to support your little one’s teething time with the 100% soft silicone that’s ergonomically shaped to soothe sore gums in every area of their mouth. This gift pack supports your little one through many of the major feeding and oral development milestones in their first year – and it comes in baby blue or perfect pink!
For the ultimate on-the-go formula feeding collection, you’ll want the Options+ Narrow Complete Gift Set. It comes with both 4 oz/120 ml and 8 oz/250 ml Options+ bottles that in addition to helping reduce colic, also prevent air build-up and decreases spit-up, burping, and gas. Take the bottles with you or pour and store with the included Dr. Brown’s Storage Travel Caps. The easy-pour spout on the Dr. Brown’s Formular Dispenser makes traveling with formula a breeze; plus, the dispenser holds enough powder to make three 9 oz/270 ml bottles. While you’re out and about, soothing baby is a cinch with the Dr. Brown’s® HappyPaci™, the pacifier shaped like Dr. Brown’s Narrow Nipple for better acceptance by baby. With the Narrow Complete Gift Set, you and baby will be all set for every adventure!
Want to make at-home feeding even easier? Tack on the Dr. Brown’s® Formula Pitcher to help reduce bubble build-up and simplify the batch-making process.
From start to finish, Dr. Brown’s is here for you and baby through the whole feeding process with the Options+ Narrow Bottle Warmer Gift Set. First up is six Options+ Bottles in both the newborn 4 oz/120 ml and 8 oz/250 ml sizes – plenty to stock up with. Grab one and quickly sterilize it using the Dr. Brown’s Microwave Steam Sterilizer Bags, perfect for at-home or on-the-go bottle and parts (and cups and pacifiers) sterilizing. You get 20 uses per bag; plus, it’s safe for hospital use, so you know it’s kitchen-safe. When the bottle is done sterilizing and cooling, dry it off and fill it up but leave the parts off. Screw on the Travel Storage Cap and pop it in the beloved Dr. Brown’s Deluxe Bottle Warmer to quickly and safely warm up the contents to baby’s liking. When baby’s done, easily clean the bottle with the Dr. Brown’s Deluxe Bottle Brush, featuring a team of soft-yet-sturdy angled bristles that help prevent soapy splashes. Settle in with your satisfied baby and the Dr. Brown’s® PreVent™ Pacifier, the orthodontic soother that lessens pressure in the mouth and helps prevent dental issues such as crossbite.
True to its name, everything you need for feeding and soothing – and even some of what you want – can be found in the Dr. Brown’s All-in-One Gift Set. From the two Options+ Narrow bottle sizes (for a grand total of 7 bottles) to the Dr. Brown’s Soft Spout Transition Cup, the All-in-One Gift Set is your one-shop stop to Happy Feeding™. With the Formula Dispenser and Storage Travel Caps, feeding on-the-go is a snap, while the Bottle Brush and Microwave Steam Sterilizer Bags simplify the cleaning process. Two PreVent Pacifiers help baby learn to self soothe, while the included Pacifier Clip keeps it close to baby. Last but never least, the beloved Deluxe Bottle Warmer warms food up fast so baby never goes from hungry to hangry. Oh, and the All-in-One’s contents together have a value of over $200 – but it’s yours for way less than that.
Not every breastfed baby needs bottles, but for those who are either going back and forth between breast and bottle, or are making the final transition from breast to bottle, the Dr. Brown’s Breast to Bottle Feeding Set is the perfect solution. The kit comes with both our Dr. Brown’s® Preemie™ Narrow Nipple and our Level 1 Nipple. While aptly named to support Preemie babies in hospitals throughout the country, and Preemie™ Nipple is great for full-term babies who need our Slowest Flow nipple to prevent flow preference and nipple confusion. This very slow-flow is also great for those babies permanently transitioning to the bottle, as they’re more likely to handle the flow rate. When baby shows signs of readiness, you can graduate them to the included slow flow Level 1.
Of course, we’re partial to all Dr. Brown’s products, from breastfeeding to dental care to transition cups and toddler feeding. We grow with baby in all sorts of ways!
