That is why LATCH™’s nipple was designed to be ultra-flexible so it can stretch, flex and pump just like the breast for an easy, correct, and continuous latch every time. Studies show that 25-35% of newborns may develop colic or reflux, causing disorganized infant sleep patterns. So, LATCH™ bottles were designed with an anti-colic valve at the bottom of the bottle to prevent air from passing through the milk / formula. This is why doctors recommend this bottle to reduce gassiness and fussiness, for better sleep cycles.
The ultra-flexible nipple on LATCH™ stretches like the breast so it can reach all the way back to baby’s soft palate for an easy, correct latch. While feeding, the uniquely designed nipple flexes as baby’s head moves. This allows baby to maintain proper latch, decreasing ingestion of air and reducing feeding frustrations for baby. The LATCH™ bottle mimics breastfeeding by releasing more milk / formula as baby applies pressure against the LATCH™ nipple’s base. This allows baby to control the flow of milk/formula during feeding. BPA Free Eases transition from breast to bottle and back Flow for every stage – 3 different nipple options Vents better - LATCH™’s one-way anti-colic valve is located at the bottom of the bottle so air does not flow through the milk / formula. The LATCH™ bottle has a patent-pending combination of an ultra flexible nipple and anti-colic valve . Research shows that reducing gas, colic, and reflux leads to less fussing and better sleep for babies.
Helping babies sleep soundly is something that I help babies and parents do everyday and recommend the LATCH™ bottle for helping your baby sleep.” Dr. Angelique Millette, PhD, CLE, CD/PCD Pediatric Sleep Consultant. If you’re like most people, chances are high that your answer is not recently — or not ever. if you knew more about your body, and had better, more credible information about period care products, you might be able to make more informed choices. Real talk, looking at yourself while squatting over a mirror can feel weird. But that’s only because many of us where taught that our vulvas (note: your vulva is the external part of the female genitals, your vagina is the internal canal) are “private” areas. This is true in the sense that you have complete control over who or what you allow down there. But it’s your body and knowing what your anatomy looks like — and what it’s supposed to look like — is an important part of staying in charge of your reproductive health. Research has shown that 50% of women worry about whether their vulva looks “normal”, 20% of women don't know what it's supposed to look like, but 1 in every 7 women has considered getting plastic surgery on it. And it’s no wonder — the female anatomy is glossed over in sexual education and rarely mentioned again once you're out of school. For some people, the only info they get about what vulvas look like is from porn, which can give a very disillusioned sense of what's normal. The truth is that vulvas (and vaginas) come in a range of shapes, sizes, and colors and each one is unique. Some people have labia that hang down, some have clitorises that are barely visible (but still powerfully pleasurable), some have a mix of brown and pink skin. A normal vulva is a healthy vulva, not one that looks a certain way. Here at Lunette, we believe that everybody should take the time to get to know themselves and their body. The deeper understanding of how the two are connected will lead to a fuller, more rewarding life. Checking out your vulva while you learn about all of its different parts can help you become more familiar with your anatomy—and there’s a lot to learn. As the term implies, the external female anatomy includes the genitals that are outside the body. The vulva includes the outer and inner lips of the labia (labia majora and labia minora), clitoris, and the openings to the urethra and vagina. This entire area is often mistakenly referred to as the vagina — what you can see externally is simply the vaginal opening. You’ll learn more about the vagina later in the internal anatomy section. Mons (or Mons Pubis) The mons pubis, or mons veneris, is the slight elevation above the pubic bone. Its job is to cushion and protect the bone during sexual intercourse. After puberty, this area becomes covered in pubic hair. Labia Majora (outer labia) Also known as the outer lips, the labia majora are the outer folds of skin that surround the vaginal opening, acting as a protective layer. While oftentimes larger than the labia minora, it is not uncommon for the inner lips to be the same size, if not larger than the outer lips. For example, they can be pink, crimson, or reddish brown. They can also vary in length from short to long, and may appear smooth or wrinkled.
Labia Minora (inner labia) Also known as the inner lips, the labia minora are the thin folds of skin within the labia majora. The inner lips cover the vaginal and urethral openings. This area within the labia minora is called the vestibule. The inner lips of the labia are the ultimate multi-taskers. From protecting the vestibule from bacteria to housing nerve endings that enhance sexual pleasure, there’s no doubt that the labia minora is majorly awesome. Inner labia, like all other parts of your vulva, look different from person to person. Some people have inner labia that hang down past their outer labia, while others have labia that are so small you can barely see them. One person could even have inner labia that looks different on each side — totally normal! Right below your mons, your inner labia connect to form your clitoral hood. This hood is connected to your glans, which is the very tip of your clitoris (the part you can see outside of your body).
The clitoral hood protects your very sensitive (think: over 8,000 nerve endings!) clitoris. Many people think that the tip of the clitoris is all there is to it, but that’s not the case. In fact, your clitoris is almost as big as a penis but it extends back into your body, making a wishbone shape, called your crura. Each side of your crura is about 3 inches long and is made up of erectile tissue that plays an important role in sexual pleasure and orgasm.
