Feeding your new baby can come with its challenges. You may think that breastfeeding your newborn will come naturally, and for some, it does. However, for many others, it isn’t so simple. Breastfeeding is a skill that both mother and baby must practice and learn together. Then, once they have figured out their feeding rhythm, it’s time to introduce a bottle, and mothers are left unsure how to do it properly so as not to halt their breastfeeding journey. They wonder how they can successfully combine breastfeeding and bottle-feeding to experience both benefits because moms deserve to feed their babies the way that works best for them. Today’s guest is sharing all the tips on how to introduce a bottle to baby, how to combine breastfeeding and bottle-feeding, and all the details parents need to know about Emulait and their baby bottle.

Disrupting the Baby Bottle Industry

Their founder, Shilo Ben Zeev, was inspired to shake up the baby bottle industry after seeing how challenging their family’s feeding journey was. With a background in MedTech, he knew the potential of advanced technology and materials to impact health and well-being. As with most innovations, Emulait was born into a gap – the gap between breast and bottle. Together with the best and brightest in design, infant feeding, and maternal health, they set out to create the world’s first-of-its-kind biomimetic baby bottle.
