Obesity in children can be prevented at an early age.
Obesity in children can lead to numerous health issues into adulthood. Therefore, it’s important to address this issue early on. CTV News Edmonton reported a new research published in the Journal of Pediatrics. The research links the baby bottle use in toddlers to obesity. “A large new study finds that kids who were still being put to bed with a bottle of milk at age two were more than 30 per cent more likely to be obese by the time they were five.”
The study, authors conclude, that prolonged bottle use may lead to the child taking in too many calories each day. It may also train the children — and perhaps their parents — to use food and drink to comfort the children.”
Do not overfeed
Bare® Air-free offers features that promote the infant to only takes what he/she needs. Flow-control® technology in the Perfe-latch® and Easy-latch® nipples work in synergy with Air-plug® to only dispense milk upon suction. Thus, Bare® Air-free allows baby to feed in a vertical, upright position with face tipped down. Consequently, this helps avoid the unhealthy habit of infants feeding in lie down position.
Sippy cup transition at 6 months
“The American Academy of Pediatrics recommends to avoid putting a child to bed with a bottle to prevent tooth decay. The Canadian Pediatric Society recommends beginning the transition to a sippy cup after six months. If needed, use water in a baby bottle at bedtime.”

Babies who are fed with Bare® transition to straws and open cups earlier than babies fed with traditional bottles. Because Bare® works with suction as opposed to gravity, babies don’t need to learn to turn Bare® upside down to feed. Neither they have to figure out gravity laws to tip or not to tip the open cup.
