Compare Bare® vs. baby bottles in promoting breastfeeding
Compare Bare® with Perfe-latch® nipple and a lactating brest. From the way our nipples extend inside the baby’s mouth to the way air-free milk is dispensed only upon suction and natural flow that’s controlled by the baby’s suction strength, Bare® with Perfe-latch® nipple, is designed to mimic a mother’s breast.
This comparison is based on published articles, factual statements and user testing.
1 Bare®, as well as bottles with liners, allow user to expel air. It is known that air-swallowing may cause gas / colic in babies. The less air ingestion the less gas in babies.
2 Nutrients are lost when milk is mixed with oxygen in the air, Bare® allows the user to expel the air and maintain an air-tight container to inhibit bacteria growth, due to the lack of oxygen, resulting in longer nutrient retention than baby bottles that allow air. A baby bottle with collapsible liners allows user to expel air but doesn’t maintain an air-free environment, air goes back in almost immediately as gravity pulls liquid down.
3 Because Bare® works with suction as opposed to gravity, baby is able to start feeding as soon as he/she can bring the bottle to his/her mouth. Other bottles require baby to turn the bottle upside down which can delay the self-feeding milestone.

Compare Bare® vs. baby bottles in reducing symptoms of GER
Breakthrough clinical findings: Bare® significantly reduced Acid Reflux symptoms in 75% of babies, in the first 2 weeks. The chart on the left shows babies fed with ordinary bottles. The chart on the right shows the same babies fed with Bare® Air-free for two weeks. Note that contents did not change, babies were fed breastmilk, regular formula and/or expesive branded formula. Read a summary of the study here.
|Bare® Air-free||Traditional baby bottles|
True Air-free milk: helps prevent gas build-up
Air infiltration: increases air-swallowing and gas build up
Upright position: reduces acid regurgitation
Horizontal feeding position: induces acid regurgitation
Flow & pace control: discourages over-feeding behavior
Easy feeding: leads to overfeeding
Promotes breastfeeding: perfe-latch® nipple helps initiate, reinstate and extend breastfeeding while supplementing
Nipple confusion: traditional bottles are known to abruptly disrupt breastfeeding
