Dr. Brown bottles are not Bpa-free. Feel free to google and do research on bpa, there is something called the Z report as well that can help you. My wife bought pricy Born-free bottles but I don't like how many parts I have to clean and they are the most expensive choice since they are strongly marketing themselves as being Bpa-free, however you can easily find cheaper alternatives such as Sassy/Mam. Most modern bottles worth anything will have venting. You will know...
Consider buying a pricy good quality breast pump from the likes of Medela especially if your hospital does not provide you loaners of hospital grade ones after childbirth. Even if your wife has no problem nursing right off the bat it will remain useful in giving mom some downtime to rest at night, etc and you will definitely enjoy feeding your daughter. If your wife does have issues nursing, a good quality breast pump will help expedite that process because it breaks you...
This is going to be my first post in what... maybe 2 years? I stopped by to voyeur how things were going over here and also in consideration of offloading some long unused and neglected gear. Wasn't intending to post much but your post caught my attention. In two years absence I believe I've swapped jobs, got new hobbies, got into good shape (MMA/kickboxing), had a great vacation in forbidden lands with a best bud, to finding a girl, getting married, taking care of my...
Bought a nano, shipped fast with quick communication. Thanks!
Very pleasant suprise as I thought this product was end-of-life and would get no further updates. I ditched foobar until the new version gets settled and am happily using MediaMonkey with ASIO plugin and Shibatch mpg123 mp3 decoder. ASIO worked off the bat. Of course it worked before. However I can maintain 24bit/96khz mode in ASIO without complaint whereas before I'd have to purposely turn on another input/output to lower max sampling in order to get 24 bit output on...
There are some roles that require a great deal of both intelligence *and* ambition, and I have found that the people in those roles are pretty fit and active. Of course maybe as they grow older they may verge towards slightly overweight depending on diet, genetics, and lifestyle like many Americans...but obesity, I don't think so but I don't wan't to go there. Well I guess there are thinkers but not doers, doers but not thinkers, and a few thinkers and doers. I...

My sources may be out of date, but I believe the ear can hear differences of around 1db in good conditions. .1-.5db is a bit optimistic...that is like saying everyone can tell channel mismatches in volume pots or sources outright and confidently which is not true since a lot of equipment aren't even matched this well. 10 db is the 'perceived' doubling of loudness, 3db is the doubling of actual intensity. Course what the human ear can detect is really just a vague...
There are two measurements that explain what I am talking about. Noise Floor measurements and S/N Ratio's. One is noise without signal and one is noise with signal. I am just saying poor noise floor is the lesser of two evils compared to poor S/N Ratio. If you had an amp that had a -90 db S/N Ratio and a -120 db Noise floor, and an amp that had a -96 db S/N Ratio and -96 db noise floor...I'm telling you right now the -96 db S/N ratio amp will be the clear winner in...

For all intents and purposes, a 30% improvement on 107 (or 104, depending on how you calculated it) is not discernable at normal listening levels. See ya Steve That was in reference to a instrumental amplifier and not audio,...
