Tommee Tippee Closer to Nature Bottles Review

Item InformationRevolutionary feeding system designed to mimic the natural flex and shape of a mother's breast. Designed to be held by being cradled in the hand or gripped at the base.
Leak free bottle hood. The Close To Nature teat is much bigger that the wide neck teats and ensures the same oral positioning from breast to teat enabling you to breast feed for longer
Overall rating: Excellent
Features: Excellent
Value for money: Good

Currently pregnant with our second baby I have decided to buy the Tommee Tippee closer to nature bottles. I used a different brand with my daughter but found she took a while to latch into them and they are a bit bulky for her tiny mouth when she was born. However since using the Tommee Tippee closer to nature bottles with many of the babies at work I have noticed how easy the babies latch into the bottles. the teats are a softer material than most bottle teats and very flexible. they are also shaped more like the breast so they are easier to wean baby onto a bottle from the breast with. They aren't one of the cheapest bottles around, however are priced around the same as most other "branded" baby bottle. They also come in decorated blue and pink packs too, and are available in 4 & 9oz bottles and 1,2,3 or 4 packs! They also have a milk dispenser which holds powdered milk then inserts Inside the bottle which means less space taken up using a separate milk dispenser! I think they are great!

i use these bottles on my lil girl, i initially bought them as a reserve because i planned to breast feed and was worrying she wouldn't latch on but due to a bad labour followed by an emergency section i couldn't BF at all. I was so glad to have them because they are amazing. They really are close to breast in shape and feel. I've had no problems at all with them (unlike avent which i found to leak), the wider neck means filling easier too. they are however much wider than other bottles meaning they take up lots of room and if you plan to use a baby flask you should get the big white one (sorry i cant remember the brand) as its a squeeze to use tommee tippee's own.

I use these bottles too and I have to say they are fab! I was originally breast feeding but decided to switch to bottles after my little boy stopped gaining weight. We tried several different brands of bottles but he just wouldn't take to them and I was at the end of my tether when a friend suggested we try these. My son took to them straight away and we've found no problems with them, other than that they are too wide to fit in a conventional bottle holder!
