Brilliant for windy baby!,
Verified Purchase(What is this?)
This review is from: Tommee Tippee Closer to Nature 260 ml/9fl oz Anti-Colic Plus Feeding Bottles (4-pack) (Baby Product)
I have been using these bottles for my daughter for about a month now and they are working a treat. Previously she was an extremely windy baby and was using anti colic drops in each bottle. She was also being sick a fair bit when trying to bring up her wind which was distressing for her. Now we have very few problems at all and she no longer needs to take any drops.
The main criticism I have read of these bottles is that they leak badly. This is true, but only if the instructions are not adhered to and milk is allowed to enter the airflow system. This can happen if the slit in the valve is not clear before use, if the valve is not kept out of the milk as your are feeding baby, or if formula and water are mixed by shaking the bottle after the anti-colic system has been put in. The way I have found to prevent this is by using the Tommee Tippee bottle lids (unfortunately not included in this box) and then adding the anti-colic system and teat just before use. Don't worry - getting this right isn't nearly as complex as it might seem!
The other criticism I have read is that the bottles are expensive and involve more washing/putting together than standard bottles. Both of these things are very small factors in my opinion - it's definately worth a little extra effort and a few more pounds on a one off purchase that will make such a big difference to your baby.
Unfortunately the temperature feature does not work at all, though it would only be a 'nice to have' as far as I'm concerned. It is supposed to turn red to indicate too hot to give to baby, however if the anti colic system is put in the bottle while the milk is still hot, it does not turn blue again even when the bottle is empty.
In summary, I would recommend these bottles to anyone with a baby suffering from colic, wind and even reflux. They are not perfect but work extremely well if all instructions are followed.
