BARE is unique because the individual parts are designed to work in synergy, creating a superior air-free feeding system to prevent air-swallowing that leads to gas and colic:
- BARE’s patented air-plug (which is inserted into the bottom of the bottle) is designed to maintain water-tight seal and easy movement throughout the length of bottle as it slides toward the nipple when baby feeds.
- The bottle compartment is designed to maintain a neutral sucking pressure from top to bottom regardless of liquid viscosity (mother’s milk, water, fruit juice or formula). In other words, the baby can maintain a consistent drinking flow and control the amounts with suction strength, like nature intended.
- The perfe-latch nipple has miniature one-way valves in tip to dispense contents only upon suction (like a mom’s nipple); it lets liquid out but no air in. The nipple and collar are molded together as one part to ensure an air-tight seal, simplify cleaning and easy assembly. The patented design has a one-of-a-kind feature that allows the nipple to grow in length when baby sucks (to mimic a mother’s nipple that triples in length inside the baby’s mouth). Because it starts small, baby doesn’t have a choice but to open his mouth wide in order to latch. This helps prevent nipple confusion and promotes good latching techniques. Perfe-latch nipple easily mounts to the top of bottle using an enhanced design with an indicator that lets mom know it is securely attached.
- Nipple Cap is designed to protect and cover the nipple when baby is not drinking.
BARE promotes development of self-feeding because it works with suction as opposed to gravity. A toddler can begin self-feeding as soon as he can bring BARE to his mouth without having to turn a bottle upside-down or to learn to recline or lie down in order to drink. Putting your baby to sleep with a bottle may increase the chances to become obese by age 5. Pediatricians recommend weaning baby off bottle after 12 months.
