Why do you think this product is so different from anything else on the market?
Ali: The Perfect Prep Night and Day is great in that it recognises that babies need feeding during the night as much as in the day. Parents want a machine that will cause minimal disruption to the baby and other members of the household by being suitably lit, quick and incredibly quiet.
Hayley: This product is different from any other product on the market because it’s a great and well-known brand. It has a very slick unique design which makes it feel very modern. The display on the prep machine is different from any other products. It is unique and very easy to use.
Naomi: The Tomme Tippee prep machine brings a whole new meaning to amazing. When you're making bottles, the light saver comes on and the night light makes it so easy to see. It helps you with the steps so you can make your bottle perfectly. It even gives you the water temperature. It is ideal for first-time mums as it guides you. I would definitely recommend this as it is a time saving product.
Why does it change your life with your baby?
Ali: Formula feeding isn’t as ‘on-demand’ as breastfeeding, but the Perfect Prep Night and Day is great for making it quick and easy to get your baby fed with minimal fuss. This is especially important at night time when you need to settle your baby as quickly as possible without disturbing them. It takes the stress of out preparing feeds, especially during night feeds when things are fraught. This means, in general, you are much calmer when responding to your baby.
Hayley: It changes my life with my baby because it’s quick and easy to use. It takes two minutes to prep a bottle with the machine taking care of the water. It makes the bottle the perfect temperature for the baby. It is less time consuming which makes life so much easier. It gives the right amount of water depending on what you choose. This product is amazing and I wouldn’t use anything else.
Naomi: As a first-time mum, I didn’t know how to make bottles or know the correct temperature. The Tommee Tippee machine does all this for you. You just need to add the formula, add the water and change the filter every couple of months. This is nothing compared to boiling a kettle and waiting for it to cool down to the correct temperature. With just two buttons the bottle is made perfectly and is ready to give to the baby straight away.
What excites you about this product?
Ali: I love the fact that this is quick and quiet to use! It is super easy to use and has a nice design on top! I love that it means a feed can be prepared on demand. This is especially useful in the early days before you work out how much and how often baby wants to be fed! Another great feature is the anti-bacterial water filter. We live in a hard water area so the filter is extra useful and the fact that it’s anti-bacterial puts your mind at ease.
Hayley: The Tommee Tippee Perfect Prep machine is definitely a must-have with a baby. The clear display, the settings, the volume, the lights are all great and minimise disturbance. The display tells you what to do making it really easy to use. It is amazing and I couldn’t recommend it enough!
Naomi: This machine excites me so much as it makes the bottle to baby’s satisfaction. The fact that the machine lights up during the night is so worthwhile. It takes much less time than traditional methods. I would definitely recommend this to any parents. The design shows you how much water you still have in the machine so you know when to top it up.
What one thing would you change about this product?
Ali: If I’m totally honest, I was hoping that it would take ALL of the efforts out of preparing a feed for me! I mistakenly believed that it would measure the formula for me too! That would be an incredible function if possible. I would also like to have a measure on the tank so that I can see exactly how much water is left. I can see that the water is low, but I don’t know whether there’s enough water to make another bottle or not without a measuring scale.
Hayley: I would like a setting where you can turn off the description on what to do on the display. After a while of using it, you know what to do. It would good to be able to turn this off.
Naomi: I would change the filter situation. If possible, I would prefer a filter that lasts six-eight months rather than one-two. The machine would be great if it took the whole tub of formula and discharged the product itself. That would be amazing.
