Summary: i love these bottles and highly recommend them i breast fed my daughter for 6 month and due to problems had to introduce formula she took to these bottles so quick and due to her toungue tie i thought she may have had some problems but no they were great they bend just like a nipple would and the shape of teat is perfect my daughter is 1 now and still uses these bottles she can hold them herself she also used to cuddle into the bottle the same way she did when on the...
Pros: ideal for transition from beasst to bottle teat moves freely like a nipple would
Cons: the bottles with valves in for colic do leak but the ones without dont
Great for combining bottle feeding with breastfeeding

Summary: We used these from six weeks with our baby when we wanted to give him an express feed (we used the same brand manual pump), and had no issues with breastfeeding or bottlefeeding as a result. The design makes them easy to hold and clean and they look modern and stylish as well as being BPA free. The different colour bottles are lovely too! Would definitely recommend.
Pros: Makes combining bottle feeding with breast feeding easy Stylish bottles (coloured available) BPA free Range of supporting equipment, eg. breast pump, sterilizer etc Easy to clean and check that they are clean Smaller bottles for when baby takes smaller amounts Shape is easy to hold Good range of teats available (including variflow)
Cons: On some of the bottles the measurement markings are really hard to see Doesn't always fit in other brand bottle holders etc Can only sterilise a few at a time due to size, even in own brand steriliser Can't seem to buy them and the teats as readily as Avent (eg. in smaller Boots stores)
Used, these initially because thought they would be the closest to the natural way as I breast fed too.

Summary: Would not recommend this product, I bought it thinking it would be the best as I breast fed too. It was my first child, so when he was constantly dribbling the milk out, I thought it was normal, until I saw other babies not doing the same. As soon as I changed the bottle all the dribbling and colic stopped! The teat was far too big for my baby to handle! Bottles are also quite bulky, not easy to use when you need to feed and hold the baby with one hand.
Pros: Supposed to be closest to breast feeding in shape and sucking action.
Cons: I suffered with these bottles for 6 weeks!!! I don't know about most people by my nipple is definitely not that big! I found the teat to be way too big for my baby, for 6 weeks the about of milk he dribbled out was unbelievable! I went through boxes and boxes of tissues!! The teat was far too big for my baby who i breastfed also. Plus I was going through teats constantly, as even on the slowest flow it wouldn't take long for the teat hole to stretch and make the flow ...
Summary: Great, will be using them again with my next baby!
Pros: Easy for baby to latch onto and doesn't create nipple confusion (my son switched easily between breast and bottle from 6 weeks)
Cons: Can only fit 5 in the steriliser instead of the 6 normal bottles as the TT ones are wider necked. Sometimes need to put the end of a teaspoon thru the valve of a new teats to open it up so the air can get back in. Extra teats can be a little expensive.
lovely soft bottle, brilliant for combining breast feeding and bottle feeding.

Summary: lovely range, great for combing breast and bottle feeding, my daughter found using these a breeze compared to the mams which she had trouble sucking on. comfortable to hold for mum and baby, deffinatly recomend to mums wanting to combine breast and bottle.
Pros: great teat design, soft and helps my baby latch on the same as when beastfeeding making her switch between the two effortlessly, easy to use, put together sterilise etc. BPA free, easy to clean thoroughly and nice to hold. dont scratch or mark easily!
Cons: the measurements are hard to see on the new bpa free ones, the lids can pop off easily. when these were first out they had no accessories so no bottle bags/warmers etc fitted so i swapped to mam for my son them now theyve expanded the range its far easier for my daughter. theyre quite expensive but so are most bottles.
