Tommee Tippee Closer to Nature Complete Starter Kit

Closer to Nature Complete Starter Kit
Everything you need to start bottle feeding!
Everything You Need to Start Bottle Feeding

The Tommee Tippee Closer to Nature Complete Starter Kit contains everything you need to make baby feeding straightforward. The style-conscious and streamlined electric steriliser is fast and easy to use, while the travel steriliser, small enough to fit in a changing bag, ensures you are never without a sterilised bottle.

The Complete Starter Kit also contains the award-winning Closer to Nature bottles, designed to make switching between breast and bottle feeding easier than ever before.

To get the most out of your bottles, the Complete Starter Kit contains milk powder dispensers, milk storage lids, medium and fast flow teats, a bottle and teat brush, insulated bottle bags and even an electric bottle and food warmer.

Quick-cycle sterilising phase
Electric Steam Steriliser

The Tommee Tippee Electric Steam Steriliser is streamlined with a host of key features. The sleek and clean-looking oval shape takes up minimal space on the kitchen worktop.

The Tommee Tippee Electric Steriliser has an allowable gap in the lid that allows for expansion when heating; without this, the lid is liable to pop off during cycle. The lid, which does not need to be air tight, also has air holes to allow the steam to escape.

The steriliser has been designed such that it eliminates all bacteria inside the steriliser. Bacteria will only grow inside if the bacteria is transferred into the steriliser through touch or if there is something on the bottle for it to grow on, which would not be the case as the bottles should have been washed prior to being loaded into the unit. This has also been tested independently.

Travel Steriliser

The compact Tommee Tippee Travel Steriliser is good for nighttime feeds. You can use it in the microwave or as a cold water steriliser. The steriliser is small enough to pack in a changing bag, compact enough to stay in your microwave and safe to use anytime, anywhere. It also includes a 260 ml bottle.

Electric Bottle and Food Warmer

The Tommee Tippee Electric Bottle and Food Warmer makes it quick and easy to heat bottles and baby food safely, while helping to preserve the nutrients that are vital to your baby's healthy development. Just place your bottle or food jar in the warmer, then use the control dial to adjust the temperature in accordance with the instructions.


The extra-wide teat on all Closer to Nature bottles works good, flexing and stretching to mimic the natural look and feel of a mother's breast to make bottle feeding easier.

Why choose Tommee Tippee?

Tommee Tippee, from the UK-based Mayborn Group, is a one of the popular brand of baby feeding accessories in the UK and one of the top brands of infant products and accessories in the global market. Loved by parents and children alike, Tommee Tippee has received numerous brand accolades in the UK, including top ranks in the prestigious Mother and Baby Awards, a head-to-head assessment of competitive products voted by mothers themselves.


If the cycle time on the steriliser is greater than five minutes, there are two possibilities. Firstly, too much water may have been added. Only 80 ml is required - there is a marking on the bottles that can be used.

Alternatively, limescale may have built up on the heating plate. The plate is deliberately visible in the steriliser design and the unit must be cleaned at least fortnightly (more frequently in hard water areas). Allowing limescale to build will have a detrimental effect on the performance of the unit.

Teat collapse resolution

There are two reasons a teat may collapse. One is an indication that your baby is ready for a faster flowing teat and may be sucking so hard that the teat cannot release air fast enough and collapses. The other is that the Easivent teats are made from very soft silicone, therefore over time the silicone can remould when not in use.

You will have noticed a small tent-like vent on the inside of the teat - this should have a small slit along which allows the airflow through the bottle and if this remoulds it will cause the teat to collapse during a feed. Please see the diagram below that may help, which is also highlighted on the front of the instructions.

All you need to do to rectify this problem is to rub the valve between your finger and thumb until the slit reopens. You will only need to do this once and the teat should then function as normal.

Teat collapse resolution
For best results, make sure this valve can open

When I had a couple of months left of my pregnancy, we started looking for bottles/steriliser etc. Last time we used the Philips Avent set but I had not been overly impressed with it. Having looked at all the different brands available we decided on Tommee Tippee. We decided to purchase the starter kit which has everything we needed in it rather than purchasing all of the different items separately.

We have found the electric steriliser works really well and has a very quick cycle (around 5 minutes). It is not too large or bulky and you can fit 6 of the smaller bottles in comfortably with a dummy case and a couple of dummies. We have since moved onto the larger bottles and they fit just as well, although you cannot get in a dummy case with 6 bottles.

The travel steriliser is very handy when you just need to sterilise one bottle/dummy. You just pop in some water and put it in the microwave for 8 minutes and that's it done!

The bottle warmer is also very good quality. There are three temperature settings. We have it set to the highest setting and it takes 5 minutes to warm a bottle straight from the fridge to the right temperature.

As for the bottles themselves they are really good quality and are a great shape making them really comfortable to hold. They are easy to take apart to clean and put back together again and they fit really well in the accessories you get with this set.

The other accessories are great. You get two of the insulated bottle bags which are really good quality and fit both the small and large bottles. The bottle brush is good as you can pull it in half and the `handle' part can be used to clean the teats properly.

My only complaint is that you only get 2 of the small bottles.

I chose to stop breastfeeding and move to bottle as I could not keep up with my son! I happened to be looking on Amazon for a steriliser when I came across the starter kit. I couldn't believe how much came in the pack for such a cheap price. When the product arrived, all compact in one box, I was again shocked by how much was in it. The steriliser is very quick and so easy to use and all the accessories are fantastic! If you were to purchase this else where or separately you would spend a fortune! Very pleased with the kit.

I bought this for my cousin and her upcoming baby as we (my husband and I) have used and are still using Tommee Tippee for our little one and we really can't fault any of the products we have from them. I just wish that we had known about the starter kit when we first bought everything as obviously buying everything separately has cost us a lot more! The price was on offer at £55.00 when we bought it though and I note that it has since gone up but even with the small price increase it is still a good value kit especially if you are a member of Amazon Family as you also get 25% off the marked price, so worth joining if you can. I would also like to just add that if you are a new parent to be and considering buying more bottles than the ones already in the kit then you may wish to just buy the 250ml or 340ml ones as your little one doesn't drink less than 150ml for much longer than a few months so it works out better to just get the larger bottles and not end up like us with lots of 150ml bottles that got packed away pretty fast after out little one was born! A brilliant kit with everything that you need as a new parent except maybe some more bottles if you don't want to be washing them all of the time!
My one gripe although not with Tommee Tippee but with Amazon is that the kit's picture shows that you get 3 Thermal Bags and not the 2 on the kit we received but I have taken this up with Amazon and being the brilliant company that they are they have sorted this out for me and are in the process of amending the picture however I note that at the time of writing my review the picture is still the same?

EDIT 08/11/2014:-
We have had our second baby since writing this review and our steriliser is still working from our first baby. I can also confirm that Tommee Tippee's new Advanced Comfort bottles fit this steriliser perfectly along with the Easy Vent bottles as we have been using the Advanced Comfort bottles with our daughter.

I've been using this steriliser for a month now and I'm quite happy with it. It takes all types of bottles, not just the tommee tippee ones, and there's plenty of space for various accessories etc. The insulating bags are handy for being out and about and the bottle warmer makes life easy in the middle of the night. The lid when opened and flipped upside down makes for a great sterilised surface to put stuff on.

I read a lot of reviews about this product and would have two things to say in respect of the most common criticisms:

1. The lid - it's not meant to be on tight! Yes, there's a gap, but there are also vents at the top to let steam escape so the lid is not meant to be airtight on the unit. Don't worry about it.

2. The heating plate getting rusty / turning water brown - this was my biggest concern and I did notice this happening with our steriliser within a couple of weeks. We do not live in an area with particularly hard water so it hadn't occurred to me that it could be limescale or anything but then I did some looking around on the internet and went out to Boots and bought a steam steriliser descaler and tried it. It's not rust people! The descaler cleared all of the "rust" off the bottom of the place and I have also switched to using filtered water rather than water straight from the tap. Problem solved.
