Most Helpful Reviews on Tommee Tippee Closer to Nature Bottles.

  • 5.0 out of 5 stars(5/5) – 10/26/2011 – … Tommee Tippee figured out how to make a breathable bottle without too many parts…. Let’s talk about the valve. It lets air in, so that the nipple doesn’t collapse…. It’s a big bottle, holding 9 ounces. It doesn’t feel like a big bottle though. It’s wide and short….  Because of its wide mouth, the bottle is easier to clean than most…. And now, for the biggest pro of all. These: Tommee Tippee Closer to Nature Formula Dispensers…. You just fill the pod with formula powder, fill the bottle with the appropriate amount of water, screw the pod into the bottle and go. No more lugging around cans of the stuff, no more worrying about your bottles spoiling. Amazing. Seriously…. (read more and buy it at Amazon.com)
  • 1.0 out of 5 stars(1/5) – 5/9/2011 – We have been looking for the perfect bottle and this is far from it. The relief valve doesn’t work. The nipple collapsed, baby looses latch and the relief valve never lets air into the bottle. The other problem is the bottle is so wide you have to lay your baby flat to get the last OZ of milk out of the bottle…. The only reason I gave this bottle one star is because they are easy to clean…. (read more and buy it at Amazon.com)
  • 4.0 out of 5 stars(4/5) – 7/11/2012 – My son really took to this cup. He nursed for a while and then I had to switch him over to formula…. The only down fall to this one is the price. It’s a huge chunk of change! If the tops go bad they are expensive as well. However, ours never went out, thank God. I would highly recommend this to someone who has a sensitive child to bottles. Als o, much easier to clean than some other bottles he used…. (read more and buy it at Target.com)
  • 5.0 out of 5 stars(5/5) – 6/9/2012 – … They are so comfortable to hold! They are easy for your little one to hold too, so they can be independent earlier. Although she didn’t spit up too frequently, she didn’t spit up ever after we switched to these bottles…. With the different types of nipples, they transition well and you can use them for a long time, then hand them down to someone else. They are really durable…. (read more and buy it at Target.com)
  • 5.0 out of 5 stars(5/5) – 9/24/2012 – These are great bottles. I breastfeed but had to supplement my baby with formula his first few weeks…. If you’ve had problems with the nipples collapsing, there’s a little vent in the nipple — make sure the vent is on the top side of the nipple so air can get in as the baby drinks. As for them leaking, the only time I had them leak I hadn’t popped the nipple into place correctly in the ring…. These are fantastic bottles for a baby who also breasfeeds….

  • 2.0 out of 5 stars(2/5) – 4/30/2012 – … My newborn still had a lot of spit up and took in a lot of air with these bottles. I later found that TT has a special bottle for anti-colic and tried that one. After switching to the anti-colic TT bottle we definitely noticed less spit up and discomfort from gas. I also tried another brand made for reducing spit up and it was also way better than theses regular Tommee Tippees…. (read more and buy it at Target.com)
