Tested by mum Laura Holmes for the M&B Awards 2016:

Why would you recommend this product to a friend/fellow mum?

These bottles are FANTASTIC. I can't rate them highly enough. They are beautifully designed, really easy to clean as they all come apart. Lovely patterns and colours on the bottles to suit both boy, girl or neutral if you are having a surprise and buying before baby arrives. By far the BEST thing for us is that they are self-sterilising. No big bulky steriliser required. Just a microwave. The anti-colic aspect is great. You can hear the air escaping from the bottom of the bottle as baby sucks and drinks.

How does this product make your life easier as a mum?

The MAM anti colic bottles are brilliant. I love the self-sterilising concept. No bulky steriliser that needs storing or transporting. We can clean and prepare bottles anywhere. We recently stayed in a hotel and sterilising bottles for the next day was no problem.  The bottles come apart into 6 parts- lid, teat, bottle neck, bottle, rubber inner and bottom. This means cleaning is more effective. Each area can be reached with hand so you are sure all the old milk residue is removed.

If you could change one thing about this product what would it be?

This product gets 5 stars across the board from us. There is no room for improvement. We love this bottle.

Why would you recommend this product to a friend/fellow mum?

This bottle is very well designed to please both mothers and babies alike. Both of my twin girls took to the bottle straight away and have had no issues with wind or colic. It's an attractive bottle that's easy to hold, very clear with measurements, and no issues around leaking. They are a bit pricey but it wouldn't stop me recommending them.

How does this product make your life easier as a mum?

My favourite thing about this bottle is the self-sterilising feature. This saves me so much time and money as I didn't have to buy a separate serialiser. Because of this, these bottles are great for when you're out and about as most places will have a microwave that you can quickly use to sterilise without worry. Because of how the bottle comes apart, it's very easy to clean.

If you could change one thing about this product what would it be?

The lids on the bottle are extremely difficult to remove. It would be impossible for me to do it with one hand which is very often all I have free. The bottle should have a 1oz marker rather than starting at 2oz, although I'm fairly certain that the top of the base is exactly one oz, it's not clear enough.

Why would you recommend this product to a friend/fellow mum?

These bottles come in lovely colours and designs and are easy to sterilise by just putting some water, following the instructions and then putting into the microwave for 3 minutes but I have found using a steriliser just as easy. I liked that they are a slightly larger bottle than others but overall I have come across much better bottles previously

How does this product make your life easier as a mum?

To be honest, my two didn't get on with these bottles so it hasn't made my life any easier. They seemed to leak quite a lot also.

If you could change one thing about this product what would it be?

They leaked quite a lot and sprayed everywhere from the teat (was drinking temperature). I understand how the base is vented to help reduce colic but didn't like how it was just screwed on at the bottom. I personally don't leave my children with bottles but I could see this presenting a hazard.

Why would you recommend this product to a friend/fellow mum?

The concept of self-sterilising bottles is very clever and really useful if you are out visiting friends and want to make up a fresh feed in a clean bottle, you no longer need to carry multiple bottles with you! The anti-colic valve system at the base of the bottle makes a lot of sense compared to having it in the teat. Bottles come in different colours which is perfect for a mum of twins, as I am, as I can tell my babies bottles apart based on the colour.

How does this product make your life easier as a mum?

Being able to sterilise a single bottle or 6 at a time allows flexibility when you go out but also when at home as you can choose to sterilise as you go or do a bigger group which is much more convenient when you have twins! I really struggled to get either of my twins to take the bottle even though I tried over numerous days at various times of the day,  however despite this I think this product deserves a silver recommendation.

If you could change one thing about this product what would it be?

I wouldn't change anything.

Tested by mum Amanda White for the M&B Awards 2016:

Why would you recommend this product to a friend/fellow mum?

The MAM anti colic bottles are so easy to assemble and use. The self-sterilising feature is fantastic & means that you don't have to take numerous bottles out with you if you're spending the day at family/friends houses - all you need access is a microwave. The designs are lovely & the bottles are available in a few different colours. I loved the blue bottles.

How does this product make your life easier as a mum?

When my other son was a baby, if we spent the day at family/friends houses I'd have to take a number of bottles with me, resulting in needing to take an additional bag to baby's changing bag. With my youngest son, the self-sterilising function on the MAM bottles meant that I only needed to have access to a microwave & therefore only needed to take 1 bottle with me - in 3 minutes the bottle was sterile again & ready to be used. Amazing!

If you could change one thing about this product what would it be?

I wouldn't change a thing. These bottles tick every box for me - I will certainly be recommending them to friends.

Tested by mum Rachel Reading for the M&B Awards 2016:

Why would you recommend this product to a friend/fellow mum?

Great looking bottles, easy to assemble and my daughter got on with the teats brilliantly after breast feeding. Comfortable to hold for me (and my daughter as she gets older) and great for mums on the go.

How does this product make your life easier as a mum?

I loved the self-sterilising feature! Great for mums like myself who are on the go all the time. Being able to sterilise anywhere with a microwave was a godsend. Feeds are so much less stressful knowing that I don't have to worry about remembering to fill the steriliser up!

If you could change one thing about this product what would it be?

I've sat here for 10 minutes and I honestly can't think of anything negative to say about this product!

Easy to use, come in some great designs, easy to clean,

How does this product make your life easier as a mum?

No need for a separate steriliser as you can sterilise each individual bottle in microwave without a steriliser.

If you could change one thing about this product what would it be?

They come on bigger packs

Tested by mum Lisa Rumford for the M&B Awards 2016:

Why would you recommend this product to a friend/fellow mum?

The MAM anti colic bottles come in 3 colours. I really like the fact that you can sterilise them on their own in a microwave - brilliant for going away They have helped my twins with their wind by reducing the amount  Also the customer service is brilliant - I asked about the tears as my twins seemed to be taking a long time to feed and I was sent the size 2 tests straight away.

How does this product make your life easier as a mum?

The sterilising factor. The reduction of wind (anti colic ) properties.  Different colours especially with having boy and girl twins

Tested by mum Faye Jonesfor the M&B Awards 2016:

Why would you recommend this product to a friend/fellow mum?

I love the fact these are self-sterilising in the microwave and are easy to use. The design on them is great and fits very well with the girlie look I go for in my daughter’s style. Also the teats are easy to use and clean making this product mum-friendly.

How does this product make your life easier as a mum?

My daughter has terrible colic and we currently used tommee tippee bottles, she is also terribly fussy. Found that in combination of using these bottles and burping every quarter way through feeding, made her less fussy and was a help with the colic which made my life a lot easier.

If you could change one thing about this product what would it be?

One thing we would change about this product is I would prefer a smaller size as well as the large size we currently are using as this would make it easier if I only wanted to top up baby after breast feeding and keep smaller bottles in your changing bag.

Tested by mum Heidi Burrett the M&B Awards 2016:

Why would you recommend this product to a friend/fellow mum?

These bottles are very good overall. The illustrations are cheery and come in unisex or in gender specific colours and designs. I found that my little boy took to the teats really well after breastfeeding and certainly didn’t suffer from colic after his feeds. I will be taking this brand with me whenever I am travelling or going on holiday. I’ll even be leaving on with the grandparents for emergencies.

How does this product make your life easier as a mum?

The fact that the bottles have continuous air flow and they are also self-sterilising using a microwave is the best part of the design. Having a bottle that can be sterilised anywhere makes travelling with a baby much easier and lighter. I literally only had to take 1 bottle with me when I visited my sister all day instead of lots of pre sterilised bottles.

If you could change one thing about this product what would it be?

That it would be suitable to go into a bottle warmer.
