Bare® Air-free vs. baby bottles
This comparison is based on published articles, factual statements, and user testing.
1 Bare®, as well as bottles with liners, allow the 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 the 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, the baby is able to start feeding as soon as he/she can bring the bottle to his/her mouth. Other bottles require the baby to turn the bottle upside down which can delay the self-feeding milestone.
4 Breastfeeding directly is proven to have invaluable benefits for mom and baby rather than bottle-feeding breast milk to learn more about the advantages of breastfeeding go to https://aappolicy.aappublications.org/cgi/content/full/pediatrics;115/2/496

- If your baby is having trouble adapting to awkward nipple stages
Easy-latch® Nipple design is the easiest to latch on
- Specially designed for bottle-fed babies who suffer gas & colic
- Flow-Control® technology: different size orifices on the tip allow baby to control feeding pace and flow with suction strength
- Anti-drip technology
- Air-plug® & Easy-latch® nipple work in synergy to promote suckling motion. See more
75% of babies no longer had GER symptoms
A pilot clinical trial showed that 75% of babies with high symptoms of GER (gastroesophageal reflux,) severe gas, spit-up, daytime fuss, and midnight colic, no longer met the clinical criteria for GER after feeding with Bare® Air-free for two weeks.
Must be used as intended. See instructions
If you are using the Perfe-latch® nipple
Use as intended
Always feed your baby in a vertical-upright position (be sure the chin doesn’t touch the chest.) Follow step-by-step instructions.
Bare® Air-free is designed to feed while held right side up. DO NOT tip upside down nor hold horizontally. Let the baby create the suction to feed while in an upright position and against gravity.
The Perfe-latch® nipple extends upon suction to emulate the mechanics of breastfeeding to minimize nipple confusion. The Easy-latch® nipple is the easiest to latch on for bottle-fed babies. Both nipples offer Flow-Control® technology so babies control the flow and pace of feeding.
