How did this product make your life easier?

Chantelle: This is a really good product for transitioning from breast to bottle. The soft teat really helps and the shape of the bottle is really good for child development. It’s easy to grip and means baby can be more independent with feeding. They are easy enough to clean (although the teats could be improved) but overall an amazing product.

Ruth: My baby seemed to like the bottles well enough and took milk from them. However we have been using a different brand from birth so my baby is used to another brand. That probably made it harder for my baby to feed from them. She’s used to different tears and bottles and feeds better from them. I liked the bottles though. 

Fiona: These bottles are extremely easy to use, they’re so simple to put together that I can do it with one hand whilst holding my baby. I find them very easy to clean, there’s no tiny parts to try and get a bottle brush into and the teats are the exact width of the teat cleaner from the same brand so takes seconds to clean everything.

Would you recommend this to other parents?

Louise: I would definitely recommend this product to other mum friends as it is very lightweight easy to use, good markings for the fluid ounce and mls which is easy to read. The tear size is nice and clear on the bottle. I would also recommend this product as it has a anti-colic valve which lots of mums would also recommend.

Fay: I would recommend the closer to nature bottles to a friend or mum as my son took to them straight away, we breastfed for a few days and he immediately took to these bottles when we stopped. After using various makes these were definitely the closest to the breast hand he happily fed from them. They are easy to clean and the writing doesn't fade even after lots of uses.

Zoe: I would recommend these Tommie Tippie bottles to parents because they are a good price so affordable for different people they come in all different colours and designs so there is loads of variety for boys and girls, they also have colic free bottle that's most babies are common for if my daughter didnt have a tongue tie I would of used then myself thank you.

Would you choose this product above all others on the market?

Hayley: I have used other branded bottles and find these are the best. These bottles are so easy to use and clean, the teat works really well with baby and she doesn’t struggle to get milk out of it. The bottles are a nice size to transport and also hold with one hand. They are not heavy. They are a good size so can get much use out of them.

Zoe: I wouldn't choose this product as they didnt help my daughter with her having a tongue tie I think mam are the best out there I've had them since my daughter was 3 weeks old and I've never looked back tommie tippie really aren't for me anymore but thank you for giving me the option to review them for you thank you.

Fiona: Yes I am convinced by Tommee Tippee bottles, they are both mum and baby friendly, easy to put together, easy to clean and a great size for baby to learn how to hold themselves. If I was looking for an anti colic bottle I would definitely start with these bottles as they’re straight forward, no hassle and really durable

What changes would you make to this product?

Fay: If I could change one thing about the closer to nature bottles it would be the rim of the bottle. When trying to make a bottle with one hand and getting milk powder around the edge it does get stuck and does make a mess when trying to put the lid on. It also takes some effort to get it off. Apart from that I wouldn't change anything.

Ruth: Making cleaning them easier. 

Louise: One thing I would change for this product is the lid, as I struggle To take the lid of and it doesn’t come off easy enough for me. That would be the only thing I would change as everything else on this product is very good, including the clearly marked measurements and the good design of the teat.
