Comotomo Natural Feel Baby Bottle

1 Comotomo Natural Feel Baby Bottle

Best Bottle for Breastfed Babies

Despite being a relatively new brand, Comotomo has managed to create a revolution in the world of baby bottles with their Natural Feel Baby Bottle. Recommended by experts and preferred by parents, this bottle ranks among the top few models that are ideal for breastfed babies. The bottle features a sensible and innovative design that enables it to closely mimic natural breastfeeding.

The Comotomo Natural Feel Baby Bottle has a naturally shaped, soft silicone nipple/teat that is perfect for babies that find it hard to transition from breastfeeding to bottle-feeding. Two of the common problems that parents face when introducing bottles to their little ones are bottle rejection and nipple confusion; the wide mound and natural shape of the teat in this bottle help your child make the transition in a seamless and relaxed manner.

During breastfeeding, you probably would have noticed how active your baby is with his/her hands; to encourage them to continue with their activities during bottle-feeding, Comotomo has used skin-like silicone material to make the body of this bottle, thereby providing babies with a calming touch and better grip as well. The bottle also addresses the most common problem with bottle-feeding – colic; it comes with two anti-colic vents on the teat/nipple to provide proper ventilation to the bottle, which means your baby will not consume air, and this prevents unwanted gas, burping, and spit ups.

The Natural Feel Baby Bottle from Comotomo is designed to make cleaning easy for you as well. As you can see, the bottle has a super-wide neck, allowing you to clean it just using your hands, and you don’t have to deal with cleaning and disinfecting bottle brushes. Moreover, the bottle is also heat-resistant and top rack dishwasher-, microwave-, and steriliser-safe. You can get it in two different colours – Green and Pink, and two sizes – 150ml and 250ml. The 150ml bottles are designed for babies from 0 to 3 months of age and they have slow flow nipples; whereas the 250ml bottles are meant for babies from 3 to 6 months of age and have medium flow nipples.

Nanobébé Breastmilk Baby Bottle

2 Nanobébé Breastmilk Baby Bottle

Best Premium Bottle for Breastfed Babies

Known for their award-winning products that are known for their unique design and high innovativeness, Nanobébé is slowly becoming a leading brand on the market for parents to find technologically advanced baby products. The Breastmilk Baby Bottle from the brand is a one-of-its-kind bottle that most certainly makes heads turn just with its unique design, but it has more than just good design to offer.

Named as the Best Baby Bottle for Breastfed Babies by the BUMP, the Nanobébé Breastmilk Baby Bottle is designed just like a mother’s breast, which makes babies instinctively connect to its shape, thereby encouraging a smooth transition from breast to bottle. Thanks to its innovative design, the bottle quickly cools breastmilk when you store the same in it, preventing the growth of bacteria; and when it time to use the milk, the bottle safely and evenly warms the milk 2x faster than other bottles on the market, and this action not only helps you feed your hungry baby quickly but also keeps all the nutrients intact.

The Breastmilk Baby Bottle gives you all-in-one feeding convenience; it allows you to pump directly into the bottle, store the same, warm the milk, and feed your baby – everything directly in the bottle. It has an advanced 360-degree anti-colic nipple/teat with a triple-vented design to enable your little one to attain a perfect latch and also eliminates gas, discomfort, or fussiness after feeding. The bottle is also non-toxic and baby-safe; it is BPA-, lead-, PVC-, and phthalate-free, and available in different colours like Pink, Gray, and Teal.

Tommee Tippee Advanced Anti-Colic Baby Bottle

3 Tommee Tippee Advanced Anti-Colic Baby Bottle

Best Value for Money Bottle for Breastfed Babies

Tommee Tippee produces a wide range of baby products for different functions, like breastfeeding, sleeping, changing, and soothing, which are popular for their high-quality and reliability. The Advanced Anti-Colic Baby Bottle from the company is one of the best baby bottles out there for breastfed babies.

When you decide to introduce your baby to bottle-feeding, one of the major concerns you might have is your little one encountering colic symptoms. Fortunately, many baby bottles today come with anti-colic features of some sort to help reduce this issue, and this product is one of the best that offers the feature. It is specially designed to prevent colic in babies by removing air bubbles in the milk, and the product is proven to reduce the symptoms, like fussing, reflux, and wind, in 80% of babies.

The Tommee Tippee Advanced Anti-Colic Baby Bottle has two systems that work towards preventing colic symptoms in babies; first is the anti-colic venting system that draws air away from the milk, and then there is the anti-colic venting tube or straw that also contributes. The venting tube or straw also has a built-in heat sensing strip that changes colour and turns pink if the milk is too hot for the baby to consume, and this gives you added reassurance that your baby can feed comfortably.

The anti-colic teat is shaped to remind babies of their mum’s breast, and it flexes and stretches naturally to make sure that your little one establishes a good latch. With this smooth silicone teat, a 92% teat acceptance rate has been recorded. To reassure you of your child’s safety, Tommee Tippee baby bottles are BPA- and phthalate-free, and the star valve in the bottle prevents leaks. The bottle is available in packs of 1, 2, and 3.

MAM Easy Start Self Sterilising Anti-Colic Bottle

4 MAM Easy Start Self Sterilising Anti-Colic Bottle

Best Travel-Friendly Bottle for Breastfed Babies

With more than 35 years of experience in the field, MAM has been producing baby products with great design and function, brought to fruition together by research, medicine, and technology experts. The Easy Start Self Sterilising Anti-Colic Bottle from the brand is currently one of the bestselling travel-friendly models out there for breastfed babies, and it is so for a variety of legit reasons.

Firstly, as its name suggests, this bottle is specifically designed for newborn babies to minimise colic symptoms in them, which it does by reducing the amount of air babies swallow while feeding. The bottle has an innovative vented base, which makes sure that there is an even flow of milk, thereby enabling your baby to drink calmly without swallowing air. Market research in the USA and field study in Austria have revealed that the MAM Easy Start bottle for breastfed babies can help reduce colic in 80% of babies.

Not to forget, this is a self-sterilising bottle as well. The bottle is designed to self-sterilise in three easy steps: fill the base with 20ml of water, place the teat with the screw ring in the base, and place the bottle body along with the protective cap on top. You can then heat the bottle in the microwave, at 500 to 1000 watts, for just three minutes. This is an excellent feature to have in a feeding bottle, which will be extremely helpful when you travel, as it eliminates the need for a separate steriliser.

The MAM Easy Start Self Sterilising Anti-Colic Bottle comes with a Skin Soft Slow Flow Teat, which is designed to feel like mum’s nipple, so your baby finds it easy to transition from breastfeeding to bottle-feeding. In fact, the bottle comes with a 94% acceptance rate, which again has been studied from market research. The bottle is also 100% BPA- and BPS-free, making it safe for your tiny tot. It is available in different colours, like White, Grey, Pink/Green, and Blue/Green, and in packs of 2 and 3 as well.

Philips Avent Natural Feeding Bottle

5 Philips Avent Natural Feeding Bottle

Best Ergonomic Bottle for Breastfed Babies

With over three decades of experience in the industry, Philips Avent is now a popular and trustworthy brand among parents looking for high-quality, durable, and reliable products for their babies. The Natural Feeding Bottle from the brand is one of the most widely used options out there for breastfed babies, and its ergonomic design largely contributes to its popularity.

The Philips Avent Natural Feeding Bottle is designed to make bottle-feeding more natural and comfortable for your baby. Its teat is ultra-soft and wide breast-shaped to mimic the feel of the breast, so babies feel comfortable transitioning from nursing to bottle-feeding. The ultra-soft teat has a flexible spiral design, along with the unique petal pattern eliminates teat collapse and enables a more natural feed. It also features an anti-colic valve that manages to prevent your baby from consuming air, and this helps reduce colic symptoms and the resulting discomfort.

Moving on to the highlighting aspect of this baby bottle, the Philips Avent Natural Feeding Bottle has an ergonomic shape, which makes it easy for you to hold it in any direction without any discomfort, and even those tiny hands of your baby can get a proper grip on the bottle. Thanks to the wide neck of the bottle, cleaning is easy, and it is made from BPA-free material that makes the bottle baby-safe. The bottle is available in colours Blue, Pink, and Transparent, and as 1-pack, 2-pack, and 3-pack.

Dr Brown's Natural Flow Anti-Colic Bottle

6 Dr Brown’s Natural Flow Anti-Colic Bottle

Best Bottle for Preemie Babies

Preemie babies need special care, even with their feeding, and this Natural Flow Anti-Colic bottle from Dr Brown’s is one of the few models out there that is designed specifically for feeding preemie babies and babies with feeding difficulties.

Sized just right for premature babies, the Natural Flow Anti-Colic Bottle features the brand’s slowest flow nipple – Preemie Flow Nipple that, as the name suggests, offers very slow milk flow for babies. This feature is ideal not just for preemie babies, but also for those little ones who are not able to cope with the newborn flow or size 1 teats that you usually get with other baby bottles. This bottle and teat are also an excellent choice for babies who consume prescribed milk due to milk intolerance or other reasons because prescribed milk tends to be watery and their flow will be too fast in regular teats.

The Dr Brown’s vented bottle is 100% vacuum-free, providing your little one with air-free feeding that reduces the buildup of gas in their tiny tummy, which in turn lets them get a good night’s sleep. The bottle is clinically proven to reduce colic, and it also decreases spit-up and gas, which can be troublesome and hinder your baby’s sleep. In addition, it is also believed to better preserve nutrients in both breast milk and formula, and you can use the bottle with or without the vent. It is BPA-free, top rack dishwasher safe, and steriliser safe as well.

NUK First Choice+ Baby Bottle

7 NUK First Choice+ Baby Bottle

Best Spill-Proof Bottle for Breastfed Babies

From the German brand NUK, the First Choice+ Baby Bottle comes with an orthodontic-shaped teat/nipple that quickly and easily adapts to your baby’s mouth, and is soft and flexible too. The teat, when in your baby’s mouth, leaves enough room for the tongue, without applying unwanted pressure on their jaw.

Similar to almost all other bottles on our list, even this one has an anti-colic feature, the Anti-Colic Air System, which is an innovative vent that is designed to prevent the swallowing of air by your baby, and market research data by the company reveals that 99% of mums confirmed that the First Choice+ bottle for breastfed babies does not cause infant colic.

The bottle has a special thermometer design on its side, a Temperature Control Indicator, which changes colour from blue to white if the milk is too hot for your baby to drink, so you can always be sure that the milk is at a comfortable drinking temperature; you can choose to have the bottle without the temperature indicator too. The wide neck of the bottle makes filling and cleaning easy. For babies 0 to 6 months of age, this bottle comes with a size M teat; however, you can purchase a size S teat separately for the initial few weeks or months and then move on to a faster flow teat.

Medela Calma Baby Bottle

8 Medela Calma Baby Bottle

Best Bottle for Expressed Breast Milk

If you choose to feed your baby expressed breast milk to keep up the practice of feeding him/her breastmilk for as long as you can, though not through direct breastfeeding, or for any other reason, Medela Calma is the baby bottle you should purchase.

Developed in association with breastfeeding experts from the Hartmann Human Lactation Research Group at the University of Western Australia, the Calma Baby Bottle allows babies to consume expressed milk in a completely natural way, just like they would with their mum, swallowing and breathing effortlessly. It enables your little one to follow a natural rhythm of drinking and pausing, without being pressurised in any way, which enables them to stay calm while feeding.

The whole design of the bottle, including its length, shape, and flow, is designed to meet your baby’s needs as he/she grows. It is designed in such a way that your bub doesn’t swallow air while drinking, thanks to the unique venting system, and the bottle is made in Switzerland from BPA-free materials, which makes it safe for babies. The Medela Calma is available in 150ml and 250ml sizes.

Lansinoh Glass Baby Bottle

The Lansinoh Glass Feeding Bottle features the brand’s NaturalWave teat, which has been developed after years of research and clinically proven to reduce nipple preference, or nipple confusion, in babies who have established breastfeeding. The teat is soft and flexible and enables easy and quick latch on. It also helps with your baby’s natural oral development by encouraging their wave-like tongue pattern.

The Air Ventilation System (AVS)in the teat reduces the possibility of colic, by reducing the intake of air. The bottle is BPA- and BPS-free, which means there is no harmful substance that could potentially contaminate your breastmilk.

Pacific Baby Hot-Tot Stainless Steel Insulated Baby Bottle

10 Pacific Baby Hot-Tot Stainless Steel Insulated Baby Bottle

Best Stainless Steel Bottle for Breastfed Babies

When it comes to baby bottles for breastfed babies, it is really hard to find stainless steel options, and since the material is also expensive, you have only limited models to choose from. Among those, the Hot-Tot Stainless Steel Insulated Baby Bottle from Pacific Baby is a reliable option you should consider.

As the name indicates, this is an insulated baby bottle that is capable of keeping liquids warm or cold for up to 10 hours, a feature that makes it come in handy not just when you travel, but also during your day out in the city or even during late-night bedside feeding. The bottle is made from high-quality food-grade 304 stainless steel that is completely recyclable, which means it is not only safe for your baby but also good for the environment. Furthermore, the material used here is lead-, phthalate-, BPS-, BPA-, and PVC-free, which makes it evident that you are investing in a baby-safe product.

The nipple/teat used in the Pacific Baby Hot-Tot Stainless Steel Insulated Baby Bottle is made in Germany, and it is both anti-colic and non-collapsible. It comes with a steel cap that is designed to be tight-fitting to prevent spills inside the diaper bag, and the cap is log-lasting as well. The neck of the bottle is designed with a unique seal technology that prevents steel dust residue from forming, and you can use the bottle for up to 5 years by simply replacing the accessory drinking tops.

The standard wide neck of the bottle makes it compatible with many other wide-neck nipples you can easily find on the market. With almost every part of the bottle made from high-quality stainless steel, your baby’s milk, expressed or formula, or any liquid you fill the bottle with will have a 98% reduction in exposure to plastic. With this product, you get to choose from a wide variety of designs, from attractive colours and prints to stylish silicone sleeve on silver in different colours also.

Mimijumi Not So Hungry Baby Bottle

11 Mimijumi Not So Hungry Baby Bottle

Nuby Reduce Reflux Baby Bottles

12 Nuby Reduce Reflux Baby Bottles

Best Bottle for Breastfed Babies with Reflux

Reflux is a condition that can happen to any baby and it happens multiple times a day, causing distress to babies. Though the only complete solution to reflex is for the baby’s internals to mature, some baby product manufacturers have tried to offer bottles and other products that can help with the condition at least to some extent. One such product is this baby bottle from Nuby.

One highly recommended way to help babies with reflux is to feed them in an upright position. But, how can you bottle-feed your baby in an upright position? The Nuby Reduce Reflux Baby Bottle addresses this issue by including a revolutionary weighted straw in the bottle that allows your little one to latch and feed in the upright position, until the last drop of milk, no matter what angle they are feeding from. This will be extremely helpful for babies suffering from reflux. What’s interesting is that even if your baby doesn’t have reflux, you can still use the bottle by simply removing the straw from the inside.

The bottle comes with a slow flow Easy Latch, SoftFlex teat that is designed to flex and stretch like a natural breast and there are three unique anti-colic valves that help prevent the ingestion of air. This is a 2-pack bottle, and the bottles are 100% BPA-free, and dishwasher- and microwave-safe. The package also comes with a small straw cleaning brush to help you remove any milk residue from the straw’s inside.

How to Choose the Best Bottles for Breastfed Babies: Buyer’s Guide

To make the transition from breastfeeding to bottle-feeding easy and comfortable for your baby, you need to find a bottle that feels as close to breastfeeding as possible. Even if you choose to formula-feed your baby after a few months of breastfeeding, you need the best bottle for breastfed babies, and here is how to choose one:

 

Materials

When it comes to the materials used in bottles for breastfed babies, you have four basic options: plastic, glass, stainless steel, and silicone. While plastic had long remained a popular option, parents have been switching to glass bottles over the past few years to avoid the risks associated with the harmful chemicals found in plastic baby bottles. However, with many government organisations, like the FDA, banning the use of chemicals like BPA (bisphenol A) in baby bottles, most plastic bottles are now safe for use. Do remember that you need to replace the plastic bottle with new ones every few months or when it turns cloudy.

In the case of glass bottles, there is the obvious risk of the bottle breaking, especially when you travel with it, and they are also considered to be heavy. But, there are protective sleeves sold just for glass baby bottles, which provide a better grip and can also contain the glass pieces in case the bottle gets dropped and breaks.

Your next option is stainless steel bottles; these bottles for breastfed babies are more expensive than the other materials and more durable as well. However, there are only a few of these available on the market, which makes them difficult to find, and since these bottles are not transparent, you cannot visibly see the level of milk without having to open the bottle.

Next comes silicone baby bottles. These bottles are known to be safer as the material is naturally free from harmful chemicals like BPA, phthalates, or PVC, and the bottles are also heat-resistant, which makes them microwave-safe, steriliser- safe, and dishwasher-safe.

 

Bottle Size

In terms of sizes, you can get the best baby bottles that are as small as 120 ml to 330 ml sizes. For newborns, you can start with a small-sized bottle and gradually increase the bottle size as your little one starts to drink more milk.

Best Bottles for Breastfed Babies Buyer Guide Image 1

Flow Rates

The flow rate of the nipple/teat is another important aspect to consider when you look at the best bottles for breastfed babies. “Flow rate” is a common term you will come across when choosing a baby bottle; it basically refers to the speed at which milk comes through the nipple when your baby sucks. Almost all manufacturers offer nipples in different speeds or flow rates, and they recommend different flow rates depending on babies’ age.

For breastfeeding babies, it is best to go with teats with the slowest flow. As you would be aware, breastfeeding is a slow process, and you should follow the same practice with a bottle as well. When you use a fast flow nipple, milk flows out easily, without your baby having to put in a lot of effort, and this will make them want to continue with this flow instead of breastfeeding directly, which will require more effort on their part. If you plan on breastfeeding your baby for as long as possible, this could become an issue. Therefore, choose a baby bottle with a slow flow nipple/teat.

It is important to remember that flow rates differ from one manufacturer’s nipples to the other, and some manufacturers label their nipples as Level 1, Level 2, Level 3, etc. based on the flow rate, which can be confusing at first. So, remember to carefully read the description before you make your purchase.

 

Nipple/Teat Shapes

Nipples of baby bottles are generally designed to imitate a mother’s nipple and manufacturers make them in different shapes. Think about it, when you breastfeed your baby, a good latch is established when he/she gets a good portion of both your nipple and areolae into their mouth; you need the same with a bottle’s nipple as well. To achieve this, you need to look for teats/nipples that change shape gradually from being narrow at the tip to getting wider as they reach the base. The gradual and appropriate sloping of the teat will make sure that your baby gets a mouthful of the teat/nipple, deep enough, without any air pockets. You can experiment with different teats to find out which type your baby prefers.

 

Introducing a Bottle to Breastfed Babies

If you have decided to introduce a bottle to your breastfeeding or breastfed baby, here are a few tips to make the transition as smooth as possible for the both of you:

Best Bottles for Breastfed Babies Buyer Guide Image 2

Don’t Rush It

One mistake that many new moms tend to do is give their breastfed baby a bottle right on the day when they choose to take the time off or go back to work. To make sure that your little one accepts the transition from breastfeeding to bottle-feeding comfortably, you should introduce them to a bottle slowly, in a relaxed way, and remember to start the process a month or at least a few weeks before your work day or in general. Also, start with small quantities of expressed or formula milk and gradually increase the amount. The key here is not to rush the process and take it slowly, at your baby’s pace.

 

Get Some Help

Since your baby is used to nursing from you, he/she is likely to refuse to take a bottle from you and might express their feeling by turning cranky and frustrated. To avoid this, you can ask for help from your partner or another family member when you initially start the transitioning process. Let them bottle-feed your baby for the first few times, without you in the room, so the little one gets accustomed to the new process.

 

Position

When introducing your baby to a bottle, seat him/her in a semi-upright position and hold the bottle in such a way that the milk just fills the nipple, without any air. This can be achieved by holding the bottle in a horizontal position. You can encourage him/her to take the bottle by brushing their lips gently with the teat, and place the whole teat into their mouth when they open wide.

 

Follow Cues

Do not expect or force your baby to finish the bottle at any point in time. Watch and follow their cues, like sucking slowly, taking gaps to breathe, releasing the tear from their mouth, falling asleep, etc., to know if they are full and are done with feeding.

If your baby does not accept a bottle during the first few tries, do not fret, but be patient. It can take numerous tries before he/she comes around. If the baby refuses, wait for a few minutes and try again; stop at the time, breastfeed as usual, and then try giving a bottle at a different time during the day; or wait for a few days and try again.

 

FAQs

When is the best time to introduce my baby to bottle-feeding?

Best Bottles for Breastfed Babies Buyer Guide Image 3

Lactation consultants widely recommend that you give it a few weeks before introducing your baby to bottle-feeding in order to establish your breast milk supply and make sure that the breastfeeding process is going smoothly. A decent time would be between 2 and 4 weeks after birth.

 

How often should I bottle-feed my breastfeeding baby?

If you wish to still maintain a good breastfeeding relationship with your baby, you can keep them familiar with bottles by offering them a bottle once a day and 3 to 4 times a week. Also, to make sure that your breast milk supply keeps up, pump regularly when your baby takes the bottle.

 

How much milk should I give my baby in a bottle?

The amount of milk a baby intakes at a time different from one baby to another. For newborns, you can start by offering them around 50 to 60 ml of expressed milk to see if he/she requires more or less. But, remember to not force your baby to finish a bottle at any time.
