Tommee Tippee Perfect Prep Day & Night at a glance: 

Getting enough sleep is a real challenge for many parents, but it’s so important to our wellbeing and our ability to parent on. Perfect Prep for day and night from Tommee Tippee is a dream machine to help you do just that. Not only does it prep the perfect bottle in two minutes, it’s also sleep friendly with added features specifically designed to make night feeding so much easier. The tommee tippee perfect prep day and night machine-making bottle feeding a dream right around the clock!

How did this product make your life easier?

Charlotte: This machine helps to make bottles at the perfect temperature really quickly, the nightlight feature meant that we initially set the machine up in our bedroom and relied on using it overnight without the need for turning all of the lights on and taking trips downstairs, thus saving ourselves more time.

Nikki: This product has made my night time feeding go so smoothly. The fact you can put the machine on silent mode for all them nighttime feeds so it doesn't wake anyone up is golden. It makes the perfect temperate bottle in 2 minutes, no fighting with the kettle at 3am or accidentally making a bottle too hot, while the little one screams. The fact it lights up as well makes it easier to see, not disturb anyone preventing you from turning on the lights in the room.

Sam: Having to make numerous bottles of milk in the night, the prep machine makes life so much easier. It is quick which is what you need when you have a crying hungry baby. the digitalized screen makes it very easy to navigate at any time of the night. I did previously have the older machine for making bottles but have replaced it with this one as the digital screen makes things easier

Would you recommend this to other parents?

Jodie: I think this product is great and I will certainly recommend to fellow friends/parents. I have found it to be an absolute life saver at night, within 2 minutes your bottle is ready at the perfect temperature, absolutely no messing around with boiled water and cooling down. This newer version is smaller than the original model, and smarter to look at, being black it also hides stains well. Its so easy to use, fool proof in fact as I’ve challenged my parents to use it! I would say it’s a little too bulky to transport about for a night away but ill be definitely taking this on a week’s holiday! The clean warning light is a brilliant feature of this model, I for one can say that sometimes things like this slip from my mind as difficult nights with baby sort of merge into one, so I really do appreciate this prompter.

Jessica: This would probably be the first thing I would recommend to a friend who will be bottle feeding! Especially when you have a few young baby, the last thing you want to do is have to take ages to makes bottles, especially in the middle of the night. This took all of the difficulty put of the process. Although my son doesn't need night feeds anymore, this would have made it so much easier. I could have made the bottle (without turning on the lights and blinding myself, thanks to the soft glow) and gotten it to him practically before he woke up. It is worth every pound for the ease and peace of mine you get!

Lauren: I would definitely recommend this product. It’s incredibly easy and convenient to use. It’s not bulky either so I was able to take it with me if we went to someone’s house for the day. I loved the original perfect prep however sometimes would make my baby a smaller bottle but forget to turn the setting back to the normal setting. This would often cause issues with the next bottle. However with the night and day you can set this each time quickly. It was easy to clean and the digital display talks you through each step which is much easier than using a manual. It’s great to be able to make baby a bottle so quickly and easily at night.

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

Jessica: This product stands out because it’s easy to use and just as easy to set up. The option to change the volume levels is great and the digital display is clear and easy to use. Having a soft glow is a lot easier than having to turn lights on and potentially wake my husband up on the middle of the night.

Charlotte: I would choose this product because of how quick and easy it was to set up and how quickly it could prepare a bottle to the perfect temperature. I also like the design of the product meaning that it fitted in with my other kitchen appliances and didn’t look out of place. It also isn’t a huge appliance so didn’t take up lots of worktop space.

Nikki: There isn't any other product on the market apart from the old style of the machine which we also had. This one is a much better improvement, with its slim line design and new digital display. The fact that you can also set it on quite is amazing as the older versions loud beep at 3am is ear piercing. 

What changes would you make to this product?

Charlotte: I would like to see clearer instructions for how to descale the appliance, I live in a hard water area and this is a big factor for us when using all appliances using water. I found the descaling instructions by searching the tommee tippee website, they were not clear for me in the instruction manual. I also think that the price point of this is very high and while a lifesaver I would find it more accessible if the price point was lower.

Toni: My one small gripe about this machine is in the set up process. On first use you have to completely fill the tank and empty it. This means pressing the button to send water through the machine several times. However, if you leave the machine to do its thing and then come back later, the auto standby kicks in and then you have to start the whole set up process from scratch! So you have to stand by the machine and press the button when prompted which for me is annoying as I don't want to stand around waiting to press a button 4/5 times!

Sam: I would provide more filters with it on purchase. It would be handy if it came with 6 momths worth of filters so you don't have to worry about purchasing one with new born. I think providing a filter would more helpful that sending it with one bottle as most mums before buying the prep machine, have decided which bottles they would like to use.
