Ear Infection is the Most Common Reason Why an American Child Sees the Doctor
Date:6/13/2010

Clearly the need for quality baby bottles is substantially growing as they demonstrate the practical, medical and financial benefits. The Sit&SipTM bottle is engineered for easy and healthy performance. After all, wouldn't any parent want what is best for their baby?

(PRWEB) June 13, 2010 -- Acute ear infections account for 15 - 20 million visits to the doctor each year in the U.S. Acute otitis media (AOM) is an infection in the middle ear that can occur at any age but is most common between the ages of 3 and 18 months. Chronic ear infections may lead to hearing, speech and learning impairments.

Feeding a baby in a horizontal position with a standard bottle is a leading cause of Otitis Media (OM; a.k.a. middle ear infection). Other causes may be pacifier use, 2nd hand smoking, or a developing immune system. An infant may be prone to ear infections with bottle feeding in a horizontal position because of its developing Eustachian Tube (ET) in the ear. This tube regulates air pressure & sound, is lined with mucous and drains fluid into the nose and mouth (similar to a sinus). It is initially short and positioned ~100 angle until the infant grows into a toddler where it then stretches longer and is angled at ~450 for better drainage.

Bottle feeding in a horizontal position may cause a backflow of milk into the ET that leads to a bacteria infection (due to the ET anatomy and opening of the ET canal when swallowing or yawning by a baby trying to equalize negative air pressure). Another form of OM may evolve when negative air pressure builds up while a baby continuously sucks on a bottle; making it hard for the ET to equalize pressure (a baby is fed ~every 3 hours for the initial 6 months and each feeding may take up to an hour). This vacuum effect can be demonstrated when one continuously drinks bottled water (e.g., EvianTM) and the bottle shrinks up. This effect
