A few weeks ago we said goodbye to our very good friend Dr. Brown. Dr. Brown's bottles that is. They were the 4th brand of bottles we tried and the ones Madeline drank out of the best, but washing all of those damn bottle parts got old! We tried Avent (my love with Brooke) and she choked. We tried Tommee Tippee which were awful! We used Playtex drop ins for a month or two but she still wasn't drinking that well. Dr. Brown's did the trick! It was my last resort since everyone I know told me what a pain these bottles were to clean. However, you do what you have to do!
While I was excited to finally find a bottle she could drink well out of, they are quite involved! Each bottle has 4 pieces you have to wash and then reassemble. It's a pain to say the least. If you have to use these bottles, I highly suggest buying the dishwasher basket that holds all of the parts. It can be found HERE. It saved my sanity.
The bottles are still sitting on my counter just staring at me. I can't throw them away. I don't know why. She hasn't had a bottle since June 24th so maybe its time to make way for some clear counter space!
Part 2 of this goodbye will be posted shortly. It will involve our exhausting process of finding a sippy cup Madeline will actually drink out of. This child doesn't make anything easy :)
