Similac Simply Smart Nipple

Nipple: The naturally shaped nipple is designed to be more like mom for feeding between breast and bottle.

This bottle has a wide design at the top, so the nipple is wider and seems more like a mom’s breast.  The tip also seems to be a little less pronounced than other bottles, again, giving it more of a natural feeling when baby sucks.


Similac Simply Smart Intellivent™

Intellivent™: This exclusive venting system is designed to minimize baby’s air intake for less fussiness and gas.

The intellivent looks pretty cool.  It’s built into the nipple to minimize air intake.  Did you know that babies physically can not breathe through their mouth?  They only breathe through their nose, so if a baby does take in air in her mouth, it automatically goes to her tummy making that terrible gas that makes them miserable.


Similac Simply Smart SmartClose™

SmartClose™: Found only in Similac SimplySmart, the SmartClose reveals a blue shield when the top is secured to prevent leaks and assure the bottle is closed.

This is an awesome feature!  How many times did I put a bottle in the diaper bag for Big Boy or MES only to find out it leaked when I was ready to feed them?  STICKY MESS!  Never fear with SmartClose!  You turn the lid until the triangle cut-out shows a blue triangle on the bottle.  The bottle is sealed and leak-free!


Similac Simply Smart EasyMix™

EasyMix™: This innovative mixing device is only found in Similac SimplySmart and is designed to help reduce bubbles and clumps.

With Big Boy, especially, we would get to the bottom of the bottle, and there was all of the formula gooped at the bottom.  YUCK!  He surely wasn’t getting the nutrition he needed that way, and we wasted a lot of formula.  Again, those bubbles are mighty dangerous things if they get into baby’s tummy; Clara has been my worst air-sucker.  When I need to use a bottle for expressed milk, any bottle that will help her with gas is an amazing bottle.

On-the-Go™ powder cap

Similac Simply Smart On-the-Go™ powder cap

Similac On-the-Go™ Powder Cap: A unique cap keeps powder and bottle together and holds enough powder formula for up to one 8-ounce bottle to help busy moms on the go. Cap sold separately.

If I didn’t breastfeed, I would invest in the Powder Cap.  Packing formula for MES for daycare was such a hassle.  If we didn’t have the right container, the humidity would get to the formula and it would be sticky.  Sometimes it would spill in other containers.  It was also a chore to measure for a bottle from a smaller container.  I imagine this would be excellent because everything is pre-measured before Mom or Dad leaves the house.  All that needs to be done is heat and mix!

Lauralee Saad loves homeschooling her three kiddos: Ballerina, age 8, Big Boy, age 6, and MESS, age 3. She enjoys sewing when she can find a spare corner to set up her machine and dig out fabrics, cooking and baking – especially if the kiddos are helping, and enjoying a good book after the kiddos have gone to bed. She is thrilled to have welcomed a baby girl into the family on March 23, 2012.
