Most Helpful Reviews on the Similac Simplysmart Bottle.

  • 5.0 out of 5 stars(5/5) – 2/18/2012 – Since this was developed by Similac, it is very well designed for formula-feeding. So here’s what I liked about this bottle: 1. Simple and easy to use. There are not a zillion parts, and yet it is anti-colic due to the vent in the nippple (similar to Tommee Tippee bottles)…. 2. No more formula clumps. It has a mixer paddle which hangs into the bottle, and shaking the bottle causes the paddle to move back and forth to fully mix the formula…. 3. Cap that seals well but also removes easily…. 4. Can buy additional caps which can hold powdered formula for travel/putting in the diaper bag…. The only thing I don’t like is that the nipple is so soft, it doesn’t seat as easily as firmer nipples do in the nipple ring…. (read more and buy it at Amazon.com)
  • 2.0 out of 5 stars(2/5) – 10/5/2012 – … My daughter likes the nipple she will take this bottle. The problem is that it leaks some. The nipple also collapses all the time. She sucks on it a few min and I have to fix it. It is so frustrating for her and me! I am looking for a better bottle now…. (read more and buy it at Amazon.com)
  • 2.0 out of 5 stars(2/5) – 4/10/2012 – The bottle is very convenient. Not too many parts and you do not have to be genius to use it. The opening is wide and very convenient. However, after only less than a month use the bottom part of the bottle lost it’s regular texture (as the rest of the bottle)…. (read more and buy it at Diapers.com)
  • 1.0 out of 5 stars(1/5) – 3/22/2012 – I bought this bottle thinking I would be able to mix formula in it (which I can with another brand of liner bottles), but these bottles are terrible! They leak around the nipple, the vent and it leaks during feeding or if the bottle tips…. (read more and buy it at Diapers.com)
  • 2.0 out of 5 stars(2/5) – 5/14/12 -…  if your going to put them in a bottle warmer or a sterilizer BEWARE they will lose there shine and the bottle warmer makes the bottom of them look terrible! I love these bottles but I wish they would change the plastic so it doesn’t turn. (read more and buy it at Babiesrus.com)
  • 3.0 out of 5 stars(3/5) – 1/26/2012 – These bottles were a great replacement to the drop-in style because of the wide base. However, at least twice I’ve had 5 oz of milk pour down my baby while giving her a bottle in the dark…. Overall, these are great for young babies–beware once your baby starts to hold the bottle–or toss the bottle–on their own.  (read more and buy it at Target.com)
