Choosing a baby bottle is one of the most personal decisions you’ll make in regard to the products you’ll use with your new little one. Let’s face it, this is a product you are going to put in your baby’s mouth so considerations are important. There are several reasons why the Joovy Boob should be on your list of bottles systems to consider. First and foremost, the Boob is intended to promote a consistent and enjoyable feeding experience for your baby.
Why consistency? Consistency is important because you want baby to have a pleasant and enjoyable meal whether bottle feeding or breastfeeding. Bottle fed babies count on you to deliver their meals on time and to their liking. It’s nice when they know what to expect as the nipple comes towards their hungry mouths! And, consistency for you in an easy to use, clean and reassemble bottle.
Nursing babies have a consistent experience. When babies nurse at the breast, they typically latch on, nuzzle down and have the perfect meal by mother, herself. Latch, check; temperature, check; flow, check. The experience is consistent and babies know they are getting the same satisfying meal each and every time they latch on.
We’ve thought this through and feel the Boob is the best baby bottle for babies, for exclusively bottle-feeding or transitioning between bottle and breast. All babies deserve a pleasant, enjoyable and consistent experience.
What are the reasons I should consider the Joovy Boob Baby Bottle over other baby bottles?
1. New advanced nipple design PLUS the new Natually Nood Nipple that introduces texture
2. CleanFlow Vent.
3. Choice of bottles/material types
4. Custom Insulator and
5. A complete set of accessories that complete the feeding solution
So, what’s so unique about these features? Let’s delve a little deeper into the details to help you determine if this is the bottle for your little ones’ feeding time.
Nipple Design. The Joovy nipple design helps promote natural latching so your baby doesn’t have to relearn between bottle and breast each time they transition. It is also uniquely structured to be soft, yet prevents nipple collapse when the baby is feeding. This allows busy parents (and babies) to easily transition from breast to bottle. We’ve also made the nipple to a European standard as there currently is no U.S. baby bottle nipple standards in place. What this means is that the Boob nipple walls are thicker which helps prevent nipple collapse, a frustrating experience for babies. Also, per EU standards, nipple flow holes are molded rather than punctured or cut giving them consistency in flow rates. We offer 5 flow rates, from preemie for newborns to an X- Cut for older babies.
Naturally Nood. The introduction of the Naturally Nood Nipple shows our commitment to breastfeeding. We know babies love the shape of the Boob nipple, and now, with the introduction of texture, babies will have one more consistency during their bottle feeding. The Naturally Nood Nipples have added wrinkles, bumps and ridges. There is also a moc areola.
The CleanFlow Vent. This is the advanced technology we’ve introduced to the Boob. This is currently the only quad vented, internal vent system available in a baby bottle. It is high tech and simple at the same time and you won’t need to spend time cleaning and assembling multiple vent parts. Plain and simple, venting is important because you want baby to take in milk or formula, not air. TheCleanFlow Vent is a plastic ring vent with a silicone liner. The four notches on the ring fit perfectly into the rim of the bottle (female side) to create quad vents. This allows properly venting, no matter how the bottle is held. It is extremely easy to clean and you don’t have to touch any part that will come in contact with the liquid.
Bottles choices. The Boob Baby Bottle are available in a high quality Polypropelene (PP) plastic and an ultra-premium Polyphenylsulfone (PPSU) plastic. The ultra-premium PPSU bottleÂ stands up to repeated sterilization and, like glass, will not absorb odor or stains. The gray tint makes milk look whiter in the bottle, offering great appeal. The high quality PP bottles are the same exquisite design and offer excellent value. All of the materials used are BPA, BPS, PVC, phthalate and lead free.
Insulator. The custom fit insulator is intended to maintain the desired temperature longer while feeding baby. It is clinically proven that feeding at body temperature provides a better nutrition absorption. The average feeding takes approximately 20 – 25 minutes and the insulator will help maintain a consistent temperature while baby nurses on the bottle.
Accessories. The Joovy Breast Pump Adapter and Sealing Cap make it quick and easy
to pump breast milk directly into the bottle and then go straight to refrigerated storage. Moms love the convenience of pumping directly into the container rather than having to transfer after pumping. Less handling means efficiency. The Boob Breast Pump Adapter fits most breast pumps.
Cleaning. The Rotating Brush makes cleaning quick and efficient. All components are dishwasher safe. Reassembly of the Boob is easy and effortless.

Be Present: Unplugging From Your Devices
We’re all guilty of being glued to our phones, tablets, or computer screens during some part of our day. Of course sometimes it’s necessary, during work hours, communicating with others, getting directions, etc. Even children come home from school and want nothing more than to sit in front of the television screen, and we know, they could do it for hours. Children see a phone and you immediately get asked the question, “Can I play a game on your phone?” Adults are just as guilty. It’s hard to go anywhere now without passing the majority of people staring down at some sort of screen.
Of course, electronics have so many amazing benefits (for crying out loud this is a blog post.. the irony), but there comes a time when we all need to unplug. Enjoy the present moment, take a break from the wifi, and give your scrolling thumbs a break.
Here are some seven occasions we advise not just turning your phone on silent, but turning it off!
Allow yourself time in the morning, before the chaos of your day, for some electronic-free time. Whether that entails sitting down for breakfast device-free or just giving yourself an hour before you start scrolling down the feed. You’ll have plenty of time during your day to be on your device. Devices can be more of a distraction than we generally think. IDC Research reports that nearly 80% of smartphone users are on their phone within 15 minutes of waking up in the morning. Unplugging in the morning gives you more time to get ready for your day, reboot, enjoy that cup of coffee, and allows you to be present in the now.
The Dinner Table
Real life conversation happens at the dinner table. Even just thirty minutes a day of conversation at dinner, without the distraction of electronics, allows you and your family to unwind from the day and enjoy the present moment. Unplug and enjoy each others company.
Right Before Bed
Being on your electronics right before bedtime isn’t a good a idea for a number of reasons. For one, the stimulation of electronics makes its more difficult for your brain to rest when it is time to go to sleep. Being on your smartphone, tv, or tablet right before bed can lead to unwanted stress and brain stimulation, interfering with your good night sleep. Allow yourself an hour before going to bed electronic-free.
Out to Eat
Ever been out to eat at a restaurant, looked to the table next to you and seen a family all staring down at some sort of device? We have too. It happens more often than not. When you go out to eat, whether its with a friend, family, or for business, turn off your device.
It’s dangerous! Staring down at your device while walking can lead to unwanted interactions (running into other people, literally) or objects. We advise avoiding looking at your phone while walking anywhere from inside the grocery store to down the hallway at your office building. This could avoid unwanted injuries, such as running into walls.
When You’re Ordering
When you are ordering food or perhaps even just paying for groceries at the store, avoid being on your smartphone. Often times it’s distracting not only to you, but to the employees helping you out.
Texting while driving has become an epidemic. The National Safety Council has reported cell phone use while driving leads to 1.6 million crashes each year. (according to this article: https://www.edgarsnyder.com/car-accident/cause-of-accident/cell-phone/cell-phone-statistics.html)
Looking down at your phone while driving could be compared to driving with a blindfold on. Your eyes are not on the road, and your attention is focused somewhere else. It’s dangerous and not worth the risk. Avoid using your smartphone while driving. If you need directions off your phone, plug them in before driving and use the verbal directions offered. If you have an iPhone, we suggest putting it on “Do Not Disturb” before you take off in your car, this will prevent you from being tempted to look down at those frequent buzzes. Don’t risk it, your smartphone will be there when you get out of the car.
