Product Description

Tommee Tippee Closer to Nature Essentials Starter Kit

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

The Tommee Tippee Closer to Nature Essentials 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 Essentials Starter Kit also contains the award-winning Closer to Nature bottles, in 150 ml and 260 ml sizes, designed to make switching between breast and bottle feeding easier than ever before.

To get the most out of your bottles, the Essentials Starter Kit contains milk powder dispensers, medium flow Closer to Nature teats, a bottle and teat brush, a set of teat tongs and even one of Tommee Tippee's range of 0-3 months pure soothers.

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.

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.

Teats

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 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.

Troubleshooting

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.

Vine Customer Review of Free Product ( What's this? )
What we have here is a big box full of Tommee Tippee stuff. Honestly, the box really is big and this would look good wrapped up as a baby shower gift or similar. Plus most of the stuff in it is likely to get used. A lot.

The item description gives a good summary of what's included but I thought I'd skim through it anyway, given that my first (and so far only) born was raised with Tommee Tippee bottles.

First up, you get four of the little 150ml bottles. These are nice enough but if you wanted to, you could skip them completely. Their small size is a bonus, but your mum/dad bag is going to be so huge anyway another couple of centimetres isn't going to hurt. Still you get four teats with these, on top of the four that come with the bigger bottles, and you could always use them as spares.

The 260ml bottles will get a lot of use and will do you until your child in his/her late 2s if you look after them. There is a bottle brush included in the set and you'll need that to get dried up milk out from the recessed of the bottle.

The insulted bottle bags are brilliant and make getting out and about with a wee one in tow slightly less impractical, as do the dispensers (these were known simply as 'pods' on my watch). You measure out your powder into them, then pack them in the bottle bag with a luke warm bottle of boiled water and away you go.

The medium flow teats help future proof the set a little bit as your baby will move on to them sooner than you think. They basically let milk flow at a faster rate meaning junior can get round to the business of turning said milk into poo more quickly. There is a soother (aka dummy) included too but I can't comment on that as my little boy never used them.

This is an excellent starter kit which contains many essential items, and a few handy non-essentials too. It's cheaper than buying separately, and is likely an easier, quicker option - you can buy this set an set your mind at ease. I've reviewed some of the individual items elsewhere: the kit contains 6 bottles, plenty for one baby, an assortment of teats, powder containers and dispensers, bottle brush and insulated bags, and then the big stuff - 2 bottle sterilizers and a bottle warmer. The electric sterilizer is excellent and the smaller travel one is great if you will be away visiting for a few hours or staying away for a few days. Likewise, the bottle warmer is useful if you're on you're travels.

Vine Customer Review of Free Product ( What's this? )
My son is now five months, and we've been using the contents of this kit to bottle-feed him expressed milk since he was born; very happy with the quality of all the items, and everything is still working as well as it did on day one.

The bottles have a nice wide neck, so they're easy to clean, either with the included bottle brush or just a sponge.

Our son took to the "Closer to Nature" teats very easily.

The bottle warmer is fairly fast and effective, and has a thermostat so you can control whether it gets quite hot for quick warming (don't leave the milk too long!) or a lower heat for more gradual warming. Ours has been used several times a day for the last five months and is still going strong.

The steriliser seems to accumulate a brownish deposit between cleanings - it almost looks like rust. I'm not sure if this is some corrosion from the heating plate at the bottom, or a deposit left behind by the evaporation of our (hard) tap water. It stays at the bottom though, and isn't a problem if you're cleaning it regularly, like you probably should!

The insulated travel bottle warmer/coolers are useful when we're out with the boy for a few hours and need to keep a bottle of milk cool and fresh until it's time to use it.

All in all - a great starting point with good quality equipment. We extended our set by buying another 6-pack of the Tommee Tippee Closer to Nature 260 ml/9fl oz Feeding Bottles and a couple of packs of Tommee Tippee Closer to Nature Milk Storage Lids (4-pack) for storing more expressed milk in the fridge - which has been very useful!

What a great box of useful items for any new baby! Although it is called a "Starter Set" its should be all that is needed for most babies until after the bottle feeding stage (apart from renewing the bottles and teats, obviously). As well as a sterilizer there is a travel sterilizer - brilliant idea. The insulated holders are also really useful. A lot of thought seems to have gone into this - even a bottle brush and soother are included.

This is a quality set from a well respected brand - and would make a very welcome gift to any new parents.

This is a great set for new parents. The quality of the product is excellent - I particularly like that it doesn't contain harmful materials too. Gave this to a friend at her baby shower and she was over the moon - particularly with the travel steriliser, which is handy for most of us who are not always at home when we feed!

You can't really go wrong with this brand - the kit is hard wearing and the teats are easy to use - the breathe through innovation is superb.
