You know those babies that are set out to humble you in the parenting arena? Yeah, Macks is one of them. This little boy is proving to do things differently than his sisters did. Some might call it high-maitenanced, I just think he likes a little bit of extra love. Everything that I used to think that I had figured out, Macks reminds me that I don’t.

Our newest parenting challenge is trying to get Macks to take a bottle. We introduced the bottle around four weeks and I started with the bottles that Harlan and Avery used and had no problem with. Of course, Macks didn’t like them so I went online that night and ordered one of nearly every kind of bottle on the market. We don’t use bottles that often, but I wanted to make sure that when he does take one that he is comfortable with it.

Of course trying out every single bottle on the market to see which one he preferred was both expensive and time consuming. I wasted a lot of milk because he would flat out refuse to take a bottle. And for any nursing mom that pumps, you know that breast milk is liquid gold.

For those of you who are dealing with a similar situation with your little one, skip the hassle that I went through with Macks, and try the new Playtex Nipple Variety Pack. This is such a genius idea that Playtex has come up with. Each package includes four different kinds of Playtex nipples to see which your baby prefers. A lot of babies might change preference as they grow,  theses nipples also fit all Playtex bottles so you can easily switch them out. The Nipple Variety Pack includes a Breastlike Shape, Naturalatch, Fullsized, and Angled nipples. They all look completely different so you are sure to find one that your little one prefers.

Now I just wish that Macks would pick his preference so that we can kick this picky bottle phase to the curb!

Great news! If your little one is just like Macks, you have a chance to win one of five Nipple Variety Packs of your own! Just fill out the form below to enter.
