Exciting News! Dr. Brown’s™ Medical is Introducing the NEW Dr. Brown’s™ Natural Flow Options™ bottle system in April 2016. Handi-Craft Company the makers of Dr. Brown’s™ products will introduce the NEW Dr. Brown’s Natural Flow Options™ bottle in April 2016.
This new bottle system has all the qualities of the Dr. Brown’s™ Natural Flow bottle:
- Reduces challenging feeding issues
- Assists with digestion
- Preserves vitamins A, C and E
The uniqueness and appreciation of the Dr. Brown’s™ Natural Flow bottle as a “Vacuum-Less” bottle system is highly recommended for premature and healthy infants to support the development of their oral feeding skills. The Options™ bottle was designed specifically for the consumer market looking for a Dr. Brown’s™ Natural Flow bottle with removable internal vent system as the infant no longer needs for challenging feeding or digestive issues*. (*Age as determined by the clinician).
Dr. Brown’s™ Nipple Improvements:
The development of the Dr. Brown’s™ Natural Flow Options™ Bottle required a redesign of the nipple to accommodate the removal of the vent system.** When the internal vent system is removed, the new nipple design provides a feeding experience similar to most “nipple-vented” bottles. The rim of all Dr. Brown’s™nipples are vented for nipple levels 1 – 4 and Y-cut. Please note the Ultra-Preemie and Preemie level nipples remain unchanged, they are “non-vented’. Removal of the internal vent system when using Dr. Brown’s Options bottle system with a “non-vented” nipple” will collapse the nipple during the infants feeding.
**Note – the “shape” of the Dr. Brown’s nipple did NOT change.
The flow rate of the Dr. Browns™ nipples will be affected once the internal vent system is removed. Handi-Craft Company can guarantee the consistency and reliability of Dr. Brown’s™ nipple flow rates when the Dr. Brown’s Natural Flow Bottle Systems are used in combination with the Internal Vent System. If the internal vent system is removed, the Dr. Brown’s Natural Flow Options™ Bottle System will function as a “Nipple-Vented” bottle system and not a “Vacuum-less” bottle system.
Using the Options Bottle as a Specialty Feeding System:
The Dr. Brown’s™ Specialty Feeding System has been recognized for the extraordinary benefit it provides infants with complicated oral motor feeding challenges. It is the COMBINATION of three critical elements to assure the functionality of the Specialty Feeding System remains unchanged –
1. Infant-Paced Feeding Valve (one-way blue valve)
2. Interval Vent System creating the “vacuum-free” feeding experience
3. Consistent and reliable nipple flow rates
**Removal of the Internal Vent System when using with the fully assembled Specialty Feeding System will invalidate the intended functionality.
We are confident you will continue to value the consistent benefits of this newly designed bottle system for your infant population as the system you are currently using. We welcome your questions/concerns, so feel free to contact the Medical Division at firstname.lastname@example.org.
