14 best baby bottles

 

The rating of the best baby bottles will help you understand their variety, as well as tell you about all the advantages and disadvantages of the recently released models.

How to choose a bottle for a newborn

Despite the seeming simplicity of children’s dishes, every detail matters here. When buying bottles for young parents, you need to pay attention to the following parameters:

Manufacturing material

Most manufacturers make plastic bottles that are not afraid of falls, although they scratch quickly and are difficult to clean.

Glass is more hygienic, tolerates sterilization well, but there is always a risk of breaking such dishes.

Nipples can be latex or silicone. The first is soft, the second is tougher, but due to this, they last longer.

Manufacturers give them different forms:

  • classic round;
  • beveled;
  • anatomical – imitating mother’s breast.

The form

Wide and short bottles are considered the most convenient – they are easier to wash. Also, many people prefer curved dishes, despite the more difficult cleaning – after all, they do not need to be turned upside down to feed the baby.

Volume

In the first months of life, the baby will have enough small bottles up to 100-150 ml – he will not drink more, and it is more convenient to carry a compact container with him. Children aged 4-5 months will already need a larger container – 250-350 ml.

The best bottles for the little ones

For babies in the first months of life, manufacturers offer special bottles with a weak fluid supply and an anatomically correct nipple. This is to ensure that the newborn does not give up natural food after bottle feeding.

The bottle from the Japanese manufacturer Pigeon has no analogues. It is suitable for babies from 3 months and is intended for the introduction of the first complementary foods.

A groove is made in the spoon-nozzle, allowing porridge and puree to flow onto it in small portions. But the mixture almost does not spontaneously pour out – for this you need to press the bottle, which distinguishes it from many similar models.

Pigeon’s buyers are particularly concerned with the quality of the plastic. It does not contain harmful impurities, is not afraid of high temperatures, does not scratch and retains its presentation for a long time.

The capacity of the container itself is small – 120 ml. But even with such small sizes, the complete storage spoon can be hidden inside the bottle by closing it on the outside with a plastic cap. A thin brush is included in the kit for cleaning all “spare parts”.

Pros:

  • excellent quality materials;
  • liquid food is not poured out, but squeezed out of the bottle;
  • the spoon can be turned over and closed inside;
  • washing brush included;
  • measuring scale.

Cons:

  • small volume;
  • requires thorough rinsing.

The Pigeon Spoon Bottle is a lifesaver when introducing your first complementary food. And it is also convenient to take it with you on a visit or on a trip. By the way, the spoon itself can be rearranged onto narrow-necked bottles from other manufacturers – instead of a nipple.

The Adiri MD + medication bottle is suitable for newborns and can be used up to 1.5 years of age.

The system was developed with the involvement of pediatricians and breastfeeding specialists. The result is a unique bottle with two compartments: one is filled with the formula for feeding the baby, and the other is filled with medicine. Thus, their mixing only takes place in the baby’s mouth.

For accurate dosage of the drug, a removable syringe is included in the kit. Despite such an unusual addition, the bottle itself repeats the female breast with its outlines.

A nipple in a bottle from Adiri is also a unique development of the manufacturer. Thanks to its anatomical shape, it excludes the baby’s refusal from natural feeding and is also equipped with an anti-colic valve.

Pros:

  • an effective way of administering liquid drugs;
  • anatomical nipple that mimics the shape of the breast;
  • anti-colic valve;
  • easy assembly;
  • all parts can be sterilized and dishwasher safe;
  • safe materials of manufacture – no harmful impurities.

Cons:

  • high price;
  • small volume (118 ml).

When feeding with the Adiri MD + bottle, parents should ensure that the bottle is in the correct position and that the teat is gripped to prevent air entrapment. It takes a little time to get used to such a system, but you will quickly realize how convenient it is.
