Image

And so many varieties? And brands? Did every company out there feel that they needed to get into the baby bottle game? Now I'm not here to give you a definitive answer, just advise. Why care what I have to say? What's so special about my take on all of these bottles? I'm just another mom, right? Kind of. I also worked for 3 years in the infant room at a local daycare (half of that was as the lead teacher) so I've seen and used PLENTY of bottles. I haven't used all of the bottles on this list but I have used most of them and have formed an opinion on those brands from that usage. Remember, this is not a complete list. I have missed A LOT of bottles here. There are so many varieties out there, but a lot of them use the same principles. Based on this, I have broken these bottl

This Mom's Review of Boss Baby: Back in Business (The Netflix series)

Image
Note SPOILERS! If you're interested in watching this kids show for it's content like me, don't read on. I even tried to write around the spoilers and still gave a lot of the storyline away.
