what is the best bottle to use?

Brest is best 2.0: ...But if you need a bottle, i like the ones that have a little bag inside that deflates as the baby drinks the contents. Less likely to lead to swallowed air, which is what the gas is in a gassy baby.
Dr. Irwin Berkowitz

Agree. One is the Playtex nurser. In addition bottles with a shorter nipple, simulating the breast may work better.

The brand of bottle is not as important as the positioning of the bottle to reduce air. There have been no studies on baby bottles that show superiority of one over another. You may need to try a variety of bottles and bottle nipples before you find the one that suits your baby.

I agree with Dr.Poinsett, there is no evidence that the type of bottle makes a difference, giving the baby a chance to burp at least every 1-2 ounces is important also.

Any brand that works: Unfortunately there is no best bottle that i could suggest for your baby. Every baby seems to have a preference as they master the skill of feeding. There are several brands on the market with various claims but if the bottle you are using works well and your baby is nourished, no change is necessary.

What are the best latching techniques?

3 doctor answers4 doctors weighed in
Dr. Laura Webb
Pediatrics 13 years experience
Is it comfortable?: Ask yourself this- if you are not comfortable the latch is not correct. However briefly a good latch typically involves mom sitting upright with feet flat on the floor, no clothing in the way and baby at the same level of the breast. Introduce the areola (not nipple!) to the baby. The nipple should be tilted to the level of baby's nose. Baby's mouth should be open wide during sucking.

Glass or plastic: You can use any bottle you choose, depending on what you believe to be the safest. Disposable bpa free drop-in bags are also a good option.

Is craniosacral therapy best for someone with tmj?

5 doctor answers8 doctors weighed in
Dr. Howard Banner
Dentistry 48 years experience
Helpful adjunct: Craniosacral therapy can be a very helpful adjunct to TMJ therapy. The problem is that if there is a vertical or anterior/posterior problem with the jaws when biting, the adjustments will not be effective for long periods of time. These jaw to jaw discrepancies must be dealt with too.
