    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.

    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.

    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.

    I have this set as good starter pack has everything you need although I don't use the bottle heater as I have a tommee tippee prep machine and then I make my bottles up as a when when I'm out. Although I have only been using it for 3 weeks and it's gotten very dirty from the heat pad I have been washing it twice a day scrubbed it really hard but doesn't seem to be working the water goes brown and the bottom shelf where the bottles are is also getting dirty. I have contacted tommee tippee as the price isn't cheap you wouldn't think this could happen

    Excellent starter kit, especially for new parents who are unsure what is needed, contains everything I needed for my newborn. Confusing packaging, with some bottles packaged within the steriliser, meaning that they are hidden. The bottles grow with the baby as the set contains smaller and larger bottles as well as different flow teats. Means you don't have to buy new bottles/teats or upgrade for a good while. Steriliser is a fair size and fits a decent amount of bottles in, however it is not too large that it would take up a lot of counter space or storage room. The powder dispensers need putting together which I found slightly confusing also. No instructions are provided for this, other than this, very efficient packaging and a very good product, especially for first time parents.

    Bought this at a great price for my GF's brother and his newborn.

    He was very pleased and the quality is great compared to its rivals. The box was huge, filled to bursting with items. Such great value for money.

    First thing to do is set all the items out on a worktop and go through everything carefully. Some items are inside others, so make sure you unwrap everything! The sterilizer is a good size and so are the various bottles. Great to use and doesn't take up too much space.

    Overall, very pleased.

    This is a great steriliser set from the trusted Tommy Tippee name.

    Individually these items would cat a lot more than they do here, the compact steriliser is a nice side, fits perfectly in the kitchen. There is enough room for four bottles.

    The set includes two separate bottle sizes, one larger for a more hungry bubba. If you cannot get the little `un fed in time then Tommy Tippee have kindly included a dummy (the Yanks call them pacifiers, we call then lifesavers!)

    The steriliser is simple to use and you get the peace of mind that you are not passing anything nasty into the bubba. They even include insulated milk carriers to keep the milk warm. That was a clever touch.

    The design also helps to alleviate colic build-up, the bane of babies and parents.

    This is a great set, any new parents would welcome it. Might be a good idea to drop subtle hints to friends and family.

    Well its my mistake not thinking properly before buying it. You really have to wait and it shouldn't be on your priority list before your little angel will be born. Unless you not planning to breastfeed. I'm breastfeeding all first 6 months, so i used it maybe 10 times in total. My baby didn't drink from bottles so for a dummy there was no reason to turn it on. I really regret that i bought it. And there was something with button. When you press it, not always is switching on.You have to switch on and off for couple of times till it's start work. Apart from that it's a good product if you really going to use it.
