  • 2016 Silver Best Bottle Feeding Product

Tested by Shilo Moody the M&B Awards 2016:

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

These bottles are easy to assemble once clean unlike some other anti-colic bottles and did seem to help relieve the colic in my baby boy. It didn't eliminate the colic completely although I found the distressed periods after a feed were shorter and less intense and also that he winded a bit easier than normal. Its classic design is easy and comfortable to hold and I had no problems getting either my son or daughter to accept the bottle.

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

By helping to stop my son from swallowing air during a feed I found he had less colic than before so we were experiencing less piercing cries and he was unsettled for a shorter period of time.

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

Get rid of the US fl oz measurements on the bottle as its confusing! Other than that I can't really think of anything to change.

I loved these bottles! They are comfortable to hold and just the right size. They are easy to take apart and clean. The teats are strong even when my baby munches on them! I have a colicky baby and he was very happy with these bottles. The lids stay on perfectly so there are no leaks in my changing bag!

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

They are really easy to use. You can take them apart easily to clean them. They are comfortable to hold and my colicky baby is happy using them. I like it that you can buy different teats as your baby grows and the bottles can be used for ages.

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

I like the simple clean design but would quite like to see some colourful or decorated bottles. I've seen blue and pink ones in shops but would like some with animals, stars or polka dots on!

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

I would absolutely recommend these bottles because they only have 3 parts, so are quick and easy to clean and put together, they are well made and good quality, they are a straight, standard shape so fit all bottle warmers and bags easily, and most importantly, they do not leak at all. They are a good size so last for ages, and the price of 2 is good against all these factors.

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

These bottles make life easier as a Mum because they don't come in 7 different parts so are easy to clean and do not leak. They are great quality, well made, and simple to construct and are a clean, neat, normal shape which means they fit with all bottle warmers or bags - they are totally reliable.

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

It's hard to think of something that could improve this product, perhaps slightly cheaper pricing would encourage more Mums to buy them and find out how good they are. Maybe advertising them more as the 'no fuss, no mess' quality bottle would be good - they are not gimmicky. They just do the job very well.

A good compact design with a very clear easy to read scale on the side. It felt like a quality item. Baby took milk from it fine, I can't comment on its anti-colic claims as my baby doesn't have colic. She is quite fussy though and seemed to like this teat. The small size meant I could sterilise more than one at a time in my small box which was really useful.

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

Compact size is easy to transport and the scale is easy to read.

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

The price. It's a lovely little bottle but there are others that work just as well at a fraction of the price.

Finally found a bottle that my baby accepts!  It's easy to use and easy to clean. With its wide mouth.  It's made by a well-known brand and it's easy to hold.

My baby settles well after a feed from this bottle.  She is happy with it, so I will not be trying any others.

My baby is happy with it!

I have been struggling to find a bottle that my little boy would accept, and now this one meets his approval!  It's easy to hold and to clean, and he doesn't seem to swallow air with it.  After he has had his feed he settles well.

Finally finding a bottle that does not get pushed away by little hands is such a relief!  I will be using these from now on!

Great bottle!

When I fed my baby breast milk from this bottle it took him a while to get use to it, but then he is be fussy when it comes to bottles!  He eventually got used to it and seemed to be happy.  No colic, no swallowing of air.

Seems to be a good bottle. Just took my little one a while to get used to!

Keep on making them!

Life-saving bottles! We had colic come out of nowhere every evening and life was so difficult. I found it hard to accept that a bottle could help but oh my god they have changed things so much for us and really helped our little boy. A bit fiddly to clean but it's worth it for a calm baby.

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

If you have a colicy baby then you know how amazing it is when they sleep and don't scream any more. It's given me a break.

There are no improvements to make.
