Mother & Baby 2018 Shortlist

At a glance:

The Bfree bottles worked well when it came to improving reflux and colic in babies. Our panel of mum testers were happy with the results, and loved the heat sensor which allowed them to see at a glance when the milk was the right temperature to feed. Assembling the bottle can be tricky, but the results are worth it if you have a colicy baby.

What they say:

“Babycare International is delighted to introduce Bfree’s world patented bottles to the Irish market. An innovative range of baby bottles and cups, Bfree products are specifically designed with a patented vent system to help neutralise vacuum, prevent ear infections and address the leading issues related to bottle feeding - colic, gas, air ingestion and vacuum. Clinically proven to significantly reduce gas and colic in 90% of babies within the first week of use, all Bfree bottles are designed to prevent leaks and nipple collapse while enabling the baby to control the flow of milk for an easy comfortable feed.”

Tested by mum Ashleen Newstead for the Mother & Baby awards 2018:

Would you recommend this to other mums?

Yes, I have already recommended it to a fellow mum as it has hugely helped my child’s reflux which is a really miracle! The bottle has such a soft and flexible teat that my baby seems to love. It is very easy to use when out and about and is sturdy enough not to spill in the changing bag.

How did this product make your life easier?

This product has a brilliant flow. My daughter has reflux and I can happily say this bottle has improved it, she doesn't seem to get as gassy anymore or be in pain when drinking. The attachment at the top of the bottle seems to mix the formula better than any other ordinary bottle I have seen.

Would you choose this product to win?

Yes, without a doubt I would buy these bottles above all others on the market having tried them. They help with reflux which any parent will know can be an absolute nightmare for baby and family. For me, anything that makes my baby’s reflux this much better is worth its weight in gold. I honestly believe this product should win a Mother & Baby award so that more mums become aware of how amazing this bottle is at helping babies struggling with reflux or colic.

What changes would you make to this product?

The only issue I had was that I kept misplacing the little brush that cleaned out the funnel as it is just so small! Therefore, the brush could be a bit bigger to solve this problem.

Would you recommend this to other mums?

The heat sensor was a big hit for me, along with how easy the bottle was to hold. I think it would work really well with younger babies that are suffering from colic and I wish I'd had the chance to test these bottles with my little one. By the time I tested them, my baby had recovered from her colic but I imagine the bottle really would have helped. I found that the bottles never leaked whilst I was using them, which is something that the company promises and turned out to be true.

How did this product make your life easier?

The Bfree Bottle did greatly reduce gas build-up in my little one. Normally, she would stop feeding several times throughout but she didn’t with this bottle and she didn't ingest much air either. Also, the heat sensor made it much easier to see if the milk was too hot when preparing the bottle.

Would you choose this product to win?

Unfortunately not, I prefer a self-sterilised bottle as I found this one was long-winded to sterilise due to all the bits it splits into. However, I would recommend it for babies with colic for sure!

What changes would you make to this product?

All the extra pieces that are required to put the bottle together make it frustrating to feed at three in the morning, when you’re not switched on. Maybe they could reduce the amount of extras so that the process was a little simpler.

Tested by mum Alex Kisby for the Mother & Baby awards 2018:

Would you recommend this to other mums?

I would definitely recommend this bottle to fellow mums as it looks lovely, baby feeds happily from it and the price point is fantastic. If other colours were available then it would be ideal for everyone, as I like to buy pink for my little girl.

How did this product make your life easier?

I wouldn’t say it makes life easier as such, as you have more parts to take apart to clean, but the colour changing heat indicator makes it easier to determine whether the milk is ready for the baby. This is a great feature.

Would you choose this product to win?

I would choose this product above all others on the market, firstly because of how sleek and stylish it looks. It is also, visibly, very good quality - friends have asked me where it’s from! The price point is fab and the bottle itself is a nice slim shape for taking around with you, as it’s not too bulky.

What changes would you make to this product?

There are a lot of pieces to take apart to use this bottle, it is not very straightforward to use, therefore, having less parts would definitely improve this product. This bottle is close to perfect apart from the number of different parts.

Tested by mum Nicole Mitchell for the Mother & Baby awards 2018:

Would you recommend this to other mums?

I would recommend this to a friend with a baby that drinks their milk too quickly and therefore builds up wind. This bottle allows the baby to drink at a slower pace and allows them to wind easier. The bottle was a unisex design which I liked, but it was not easy to wash out. I also found it tricky to assemble when out and about as there were so many parts.

How did this product make your life easier?

This bottle has made my life easier as a mum, by allowing my son to drink his milk calmly. It has dramatically reduced the amount of air he is taking in while drinking and he is now so much more comfortable to feed, which is amazing!

Would you choose this product to win?

I would choose this product to use when at home with my son, as it made drinking so much easier for him. However, this is not a product I would take out and about because it takes so long to assemble. But all in all, the main aim is to make feeding better for the baby and this product does that.

What changes would you make to this product?

I would make the assembly of the bottle easier and provide more cleaning tools in the box to improve hygiene. Otherwise, this is a great product and I would recommend it!

Tested by mum Donna Richardson for the Mother & Baby awards 2018:

Would you recommend this to other mums?

I have already recommended this bottle to friends and they can’t wait to try it too. These bottles are particularly good because they are hygienic and easy to transport around. I love their flexibility and soft teat. More importantly, they are proven to reduce colic and I have seen visible results.

How did this product make your life easier?

As a mum of a baby with an allergy to cow’s milk, we use a special formula which needs to be boiled and then cooled down for use. Getting the temperature just right is essential and these bottles do just that and are perfect to take out on the go. The heat sensitive core is fantastic and really helps to reduce colic. My baby arches her back due to tummy pain when she feeds, so this has helped us no end. Amazing bottles – thank you!

Would you choose this product to win?

Yes! We have tried other brands, but they don’t seem to have the same results, so we have concluded that this product is the best for us.

What changes would you make to this product?

The bottles are very durable and withstand a blast in the dishwasher, but are not so easy to clean manually. The addition of a self-cleaning solution would be really helpful. That said, I love this product and the slim teat was great for her little teething mouth and sore gums.
