Feed baby in upright position to avoid reflux
Feed baby in upright position to avoid reflux symptoms.

Gassy babies and Acid reflux symptoms are more common in babies than you think. It causes infants to spit up after a meal, but frequent vomiting associated with discomfort and difficulty feeding or weight loss may be caused by GERD (gastroesophageal reflux disease). GERD is a condition that causes the upward movement of stomach content, including acid, into the esophagus and sometimes into or out of the mouth*. You should always consult with your Doctor about any symptoms your baby may have.

The position that your baby feeds in can worsen or ease the symptoms of GERD, as gravity tends to play a big role in keeping food down. As such, doctors recommend that you feed your baby in an upright position.

Bare’s revolutionary design makes Bare® the only baby bottle that allows the baby’s suction to dispense milk regardless of the baby’s position. Bare® technology also allows baby to not only control the amount of food s/he takes in but the frequency of each sip.
