Because it has the tube, dd can be facing me, cuddled up near my breast, without the bottle in the way or poking us at weird angles. I love that it lets us be close while she's bottlefeeding.
I do imagine the tube could be a strangulation hazard, if someone left the baby alone with it, but the tubing slips off the connectors pretty easily. Regardless, I would certainly hope no one would just stick a bottle, Podee or not, in their babe's mouth and leave.
So you can laugh at the Podee- it certainly does look weird. But dd and I love it and wouldn't trade it for anything (except a chance to breastfeed).
Yeah, I guess I could see that. I also ff, but I just cradle Moo and hold her bottle, lately, she's been holding her own bottle so I can play with her more during snuggle/feed...
