Most Helpful Reviews on MAM Anti-Colic Bottles

  • 4.0 out of 5 stars(4/5) – 5/31/2011 – There are some things people need to understand about the MAM bottles and Dr. Brown’s bottles versus other “vented” bottles on the market…. These MAM bottles are SO much better simply because they don’t require that stupid pipe cleaner to clean the pieces out…. Regarding the leaks, most people were complaining that the bottles leaked when they HEATED THEM UP…. Simple solution: UNSCREW THE TOP OF THE BOTTLE WHEN YOU HEAT IT!… (read more and buy it at Amazon.com)
  • 3.0 out of 5 stars(3/5) – 7/17/2012 – For my first child I used the Dr. Brown’s bottles, but after a year of washing all those parts and using the pipe cleaner on the straw, I was determined to find an easier bottle with my second…. Because these bottles are thicker around the bottom, they take forever to heat up…. (read more and buy it at Amazon.com)
  • 3.0 out of 5 stars(3/5) – 1/2/2012 – We were using tommy tippee bottles but the nipple was too large and most of the milk ran down her face…. She loves the nipple and she can hold it easily at 4 months. However, if you shake it up to mix, it leaks out of the bottom. And sometimes it will leak while feeding….

  • 5.0 out of 5 stars(5/5) – 7/1/2011 – … They have a great nipple that does not collapse, it is wide and a bit flat like how your nipple flattens while baby nurses. The bottom comes off so you are able to wash thoroughly…. He has had no gas issues and they have not leaked. Overall a great bottle! (read more and buy it at Target.com)
  • 2.0 out of 5 stars(2/5) – 8/5/2012 – … I do have to say though that I was very disappointed. If they aren’t put together just right then they will leak and the caps are extremely difficult to get off. When it’s 6 o’clock in the morning you really don’t feel like taking an extra 10 minutes to make sure every piece is put together just right, then spend another 5 minutes just trying to get the lid off…. I liked how wide they are because it makes them so easy to clean, and my twins liked the wide extra large nipples on them as well. However, one of twins now likes to feed himself his bottle and has a very hard time holding onto this wide bottle…. (read more and buy it at Walmart.com)
  • 5.0 out of 5 stars(5/5) – 10/14/2011 – I don’t know why these bottles aren’t more popular….  But as far as the vents go, these work better than the Playtex Ventaire only because the disc on the bottom snaps into place better. There’s very little chance you’re ever going to have a leak unless you manage to put the disc in wrong, which is next to impossible. On the downside, to be fair, they do require a tad more work. There are more pieces- only two more- so that’s two more parts to clean. Not a big deal to me, and the upside is that you can actually get the entire bottle really clean….
