Closer to Nature Advanced Comfort range
Colic is a mystery that parents and caregivers of colicky babies would give anything to solve! Colic is a recognised medical term for excessive frequent crying in babies who appear to be otherwise healthy and well-fed. Even medical practitioners don’t understand or agree upon the causes of colic, but one of the most common contributing factors is still believed to be wind (in fact, the word has its origins in the ancient Greek word ‘kolon’ a variant of ‘colon’). There’s also information which suggests that a burp or bowel motion can end a colicky attack, which further supports the theory that intestinal gas is a factor in a colicky baby’s discomfort.
A baby can ingest wind air in two ways when feeding from a bottle: when air is mixed within the milk, and as they suckle at the teat. If your bottle-fed baby is uncomfortable after each feed and suffers from wind, it’s worth investing in a bottle and teats that can help. The new Advanced comfort ™ range of bottle and teats from closer to nature is specially designed to help reduce air bubbles in the milk and to encourage a good latch-on at the teat. The closer to nature teats feature a patented air-venting system that regulates air flow: the air vents down through the tube and into the air-space at the base of the bottle, completely bypassing the milk. Designed to mimic the natural curve, movement and softness of your breast, the teats also feature patented ripples inside, which allow them to flex and stretch, giving your baby the most natural bottle feeding experience, and making it easy to switch between breast and bottle. The Advanced comfort™ bottle and teats also feature a super wide neck design for an easy, natural latch-on.
Coping with colic can be stressful and exhausting – for you and your baby – but rest assured, colic isn’t permanent and usually passes by the time your little one is three months old.
