  • 2020 Shortlisted Best Bottle Feeding Product

At a glance:

This soft, flexible bottle is a perfect shape and texture for little hands and is perfect for weaning as it simulates the breastfeeding process. The bottle is leak free and allows milk to flow steadily at your baby’s pace, helping to ease colic.

How did this product make your life easier?

Natasha: These bottles have certainly made cleaning times a bit quicker! The wider tops of the bottles have meant that it hasn't needed so much faffing around when washing to get into all the bits that you normally need too with other brands. They have been lovely bottles to review with my 6-month-old daughter.

Sadie-Jade: Unfortunately the product didn’t get to me until a few days ago, so I haven’t really had much chance to use this product. I have slightly tried it with my little one but she didn’t take it to it. However, the design of the bottle is brilliant with it being a rubber material rather than hard and she enjoyed holding it herself.

Krystina: I absolutely love this bottle the two things in particular that made it easier for me was the teat been really strong and the surround is not as thick as other bottles. So, when my baby is drinking the teat doesn’t keep getting sucked in and I don’t have to keep stopping and starting to wait for the teat to go back to normal. The second thing is when you remove the teat to add milk the top of the bottle is the full width so it’s easy if adding a lot of milk powder you don’t have to wait for some of it to sink in first.

Would you recommend this to other mums?

Jennifer: I would recommend this product to a friend because it makes transitioning from breast to bottle so much easier and natural! The design is lovely and practical, and the teeth are soft. The bottle design is ingenious - the fact that it can be squeezed means you can encourage your little one to suck with a little bit of milk squeezed into their mouth. It’s the only bottle of all the ones I’ve tried that my little boy liked and I am delighted!! It is on the pricey side though!

Natasha: I would absolutely recommend them. They are made with such a great quality and are clearly quite durable and well proportioned. The design has been really thought out and every aspect of working with the parent has been covered. The wide top makes it extremely easy to clean adequately when washing up and baby took really well to the teats.

Krystina: This bottle is really easy to clean, there are no ridges that milk can get stuck. It’s a very smooth shape that flows which eliminates any form of leaking which I have experienced with other bottles. The ounce markings are not printed on so there’s no risk of them rubbing off which I have experienced with other bottles.

Would you choose this product to win?

Natasha: Yes, I think if you are a part breastfeeding/part formula feeding mum then these bottles can be really beneficial in baby feeling as comfortable on one as they are the other. The cleaning aspect is great and I think personally the only thing that could make it better would be if it came with some sort of ability to self sterilise (such as the MAM bottles.)

Sadie-Jade: No, simply for the fact that my children have been very picky with the shape of the teats that they like. This seems to only come in the straight teat shape where as both my babies prefer the weird shape of teat. However, the material of the bottle Is very unique and makes it a lot easier for the baby to hold.

Jennifer: Yes because it is the only one my son will take. It is great quality, wonderful design and easy to clean. My only issue is that it is a bit pricey but given that it’s the only one my son will take I think it’s worth every penny. It’s very easy to clean too which is a plus and the teeth are soft and pliable which I think helps breastfed babies take a bottle. Being able to squeeze milk into my baby's mouth to encourage them to suck is a fantastic design feature and one I haven’t seen before. 

What changes would you make to this product?

Natasha: Even though the bottles do not have the same self sterilising technology that the MAM bottles have, they have been very well thought out and are still remarkably easy to clean compared to other brands that we have used in the past, such as Tomme Tippee. I think if I had to pick something to change or adapt then it would be the ability to give them the same self sterilising element.

Krystina: I would lower the price I’d pay around £15.00 at the most for it. The only other thing I’d change is that I’d attach the teat to the rim as it’s just another piece to separate and clean. As a single mum, I just want quickness so I can spend more time with my baby.

Sadie-Jade: I would change the teat shape, or at least make it so the teat is interchangeable or so it comes with the option of the one teat shape or the other. If it came with the other shape teat as an option I would definitely choose this product. However, I would also change the cost of it as they seem to be very pricey for one bottle when you can get a pack of 3 if not 6 of your standard bottles compared to this.
