Paying for a premium bottle like this might not be for everyone but after trying numerous brands, your baby might not like any of them. The MACE bottle is different! “When choosing the right baby bottle, we understand a parents’ concerns. We want the safest experience for our little ones and the most peaceful experience for everyone! The aMACEing ZERO LEAK® Baby Bottle uses a patented nipple design to offer a leak-proof baby bottle. Milk only comes out when your baby is feeding on the nipple. If your baby stops, the flow stops! This reduces the chances of health-related and potentially life-threatening risks. Our patented leak-proof nipple also has a uniquely designed anti-colic vent that helps reduce colic and symptoms like burping, gas, and re-flux so feeding is always a great experience for both you and your baby.”
