I really wanted to love this bottle. There aren’t a ton of choices out there in stainless steel, and this is the cutest of all the options I’ve seen. The bottle itself is okay — it could be better, but it gets the job done.BUT…- The paint chipped pretty quickly/easily, and I found green flecks on my baby’s lips!!! So if you go with this bottle, I highly suggest getting the plain silver finish instead of the fun colors.- The nipple ring sliced my hand open. If you look closely at the ring in the picture, you can see how the bottom edge curls up and inward. Well, it doesn’t curl inward enough, and that inside edge is kind of sharp. I screwed it on a little too tight, and sliced my hand open trying to unscrew it. Now, I was exerting a lot of pressure (far more than a baby would be able to), so I don’t think it’s dangerous for the kiddos, but I’m a lot more cautious when I put this thing together now.- The volume markings could be better. Since you can’t see through these bottles like you can glass, not having every ounce marked on the inside makes filling them a guessing game. The 5oz bottle, for example, only has markings for 2 and 3 oz. That said, a lot of the stainless steel bottles out there don’t have ANY markings, so it’s better than nothing.- The nipples/spouts are wicked fast. The level 1 that came with the bottle is comparable to the level 3 nipples from all the other brands I tried. The sippy-cup transition spout is NOT a sippy cup — it’s just a soft (pliable as a silicone nipple) spout shaped like a sippy cup. Both the sippy spout and the level 1 nipples will drip (quickly and steadily) without any suction whatsoever. My daughter (now 8 months) won’t touch this with the sippy spout on. The sizing is standard (wide-mouth), so it’s easy to buy replacement parts…but should you have to??- The cap is a soft, fold-on/peel-off deal that is pretty annoying, difficult to put on, and gets dirty easily. I’d much prefer a cap that is more rigid (so it stays on and keeps the nipple or spout from leaking) and snaps on/off. Kleen Kanteen manages to do it, so I don’t know why Pura can’t.All in all, this is a good bottle if you avoid the painted finishes, replace the nipple/spout with another brand, are careful with the sharp edge on the ring, and don’t mind not having a decent lid. Seems like a lot of trouble to have to go to for the price, though.

In general, this is an excellent sippy bottle with several important features:1. The bottle is metal, the ring is metal, the nipple and lid are silicone. This is particularly comforting if you are trying to get rid of plastic bottles and parts. The metal pieces go through the dishwasher nicely and the nipple and lid are very easy to hand wash (though we often put the lids in the dishwasher as well).2. The entire unit is durable. Even the small flap on the nipple has held up well in many months of use by our twin toddlers. I consider that a resounding success. We have also experienced no dents or other physical deformities in the parts.3. This bottle is easy to use. It fits perfectly into our kids hands, is not overly slick (unless, of course, they ‘slime’ it up with some food), and is easy to assemble and disassemble.I have a couple of caveats, however. I do not like that they paint began peeling off soon after we got the bottles (we also have the green one, and the behavior is the same). There is no paint on the inside, so ingestion via liquid is not the primary concern, but we do worry that our kids will ‘pick’ at the peeling areas and that chips might end up being consumed. The other ‘concern’ is likely conditional on how active your kids are with their bottles. The nipple design of this bottle is quite simple, but this means that if they flip the bottle upside down and ‘bounce’ the nipple on the table/a tray, it leaks profusely. If your kids are not so aggressive with their bottles this will not be a concern, but be aware that you might need to clean up a bit more than with a bottle with a hard nipple!All in all, this is an excellent bottle and our entire family loves them.

In an attempt to go plastic-free, I did tons of research online about what sippy cup to start my daughter out on, she is 6 months. Finding this one was great! It’s stylish, high quality, no plastic, durable and amazon was the only dealer that did not have it out of stock, so I was able to order it and get it in the mail quickly.

Alas! My daughter took to a bottle! Thank you Dr Brown’s! My daughter was strictly breastfed, but I have to get my wisdom teeth pulled and won’t be able to nurse her for 24 hours. Trying to transition a breastfed baby to a bottle is not an easy task. She used avent the first couple weeks after birth bc i had mastitis. I didn’t keep up with bottles though, I found it more of a chore to pump and feed. Now at 6 mo my daughter turned down the avent bottles even with age appropriate nipples. We tried a sippy cup but she’s not quite ready for it and got too gassy from it. We tried the playtex vent air, and what junk! You can’t sterilize it in steam just wash, and she would suck on it and get nothing. She started getting angry at the sight of bottles! We tried a single Dr brown’s bottle first. Instant success! Then i saw these pink bottles at babies r us 4 pack on sale for $18! They are cute and my baby loves this bottle. It will also be helpful as we move out of state in a couple weeks. I will pump then and bottle feed her on the road. Again, thank you Dr Brown’s! After all the great reviews, I’m glad I went with this and not Tommee Tippy as I heard from a friend they don’t work well. I know this is long but hopefully is helpful to anyone having trouble transitioning baby from breast to bottle. Dr Brown’s hands down is the best way to go.
Octavia Albia, IA
Love Dr. Brown’s bottles. The flow for every stage is just right for my daughter (not too fast) and the silicone nipple is soft and long lasting. I have been using the nipple for almost 5 months and the silicone stays soft with only very slight of discoloration.Have tried Avent bottles but it leaks a lot!The Pink bottles are must have for baby girl. The color is a very pretty shade of pink and I am so tempted to buy the blue one as well!Note : Don’t sterilize them using water boiling method. I boiled mine few times and the print on the surface came off…..

The pink and purple bottles are made in China while the standard color bottles are still made in the US. Why make them differently??

Similac has done their best to create a user friendly bottle with this product. Some of the things I liked about the bottle are:1. Removable “EasyMix” actually seems to help mix powdered formula. I had my doubts, but tried mixing with and without it and was able to mix the formula well without shaking like mad (which introduces bubbles into the formula).2. Vented nipple worked well to stop nipple collapse.3. While I don’t think screwing a nipple on a bottle is difficult, I know some can leak if they are overtightened. It was nice that this bottle has the SmartClose feature so you know exactly how tight/loose the nipple ring should be.4. I know some haven’t liked the soft nipple, but my son really did.5. Availability of a cap that that can store powder formula.The things I thought could use work:1. The vent in the nipple does what it says it will, but the air entering the bottle through it went straight into the formula right by where the baby is sucking formula out. I have a feeling a decent amount of air was introduced into the formula due to this.2. I would have loved for a powder cap to have come with the bottle instead of being an accessory.

Who knew that a baby bottle could be so technologically advanced? I really don’t mean to sound sarcastic because I was really amazed at all the features this bottle has to help your baby.This bottle solves all the feeding problems your baby may have:1) helps reduce fussiness and gas2) designed in such a way as to prevent leaks3) has a “tongue” type device that reduces the bubbles that commonly occur in other bottles and cause gas4) offers a nipple design that supports both bottle and breast feeding so you can give your baby what he/she needsMy favorite feature though, other than the fact that the bottle is BPA free, is that there are bottles available based on how much or how fast your baby eats. This way you can set the flow of how fast or slow your baby eats. If have a baby that needs to eat a lot quickly, like my grandson Noah, then you’ll find this feature to be particularly helpful.One final thing is that these bottles are tough. They won’t break easily, which to me is important especially if you travel a lot or just need baby bottles that need to be tough. Compared to other bottles that don’t cost much less, this is a real bargain and worth the price.

- Clinically proven to reduce fussiness, especially during night time
- Easy to combine breast and bottle feeding
- Wide bottle shape for easy filling and cleaning
- Accurate feeding measurement markings on bottle
- Dishwasher and microwave safe
I love these blue bottles so much that I tossed the original Avent ones that leaked unless you got the ring on just right. These have an inner ring that goes under the bottle ring (yes…yet one more part to wash!) and it prevents them from leaking. No leaks…not even once! They cannot be used without that inner ring. Finally Avent got it right!!!
Lakisha Sycamore, AL
todo el mundo me pregunta donde los compre, son espectaculares y elegantes para las niñas… lo malo es que con la leche adentro quedan muy rosa clarito, a diferencia de los azules de los varones que mas bien les favorece la leche, porque resalta mas el azul.
Hilary Winifrede, WV
I knew what i was getting so no surprises there. I love these bottles because they are very easy to wash and because the lid closes tight so you can carry full bottles in your diaper bag with no leaks. My baby still prefers Dr.Brown’s.

I wanted to like this bottle but using it was a nightmare. It leaked all over the place, from every seam, no matter what position it was in. I thought I was going crazy. Who would make a bottle this poor in quality and at this high cost per piece? I asked my iron man of a husband (6’4″ and a professional firefighter) to tighten all parts to make sure I wasn’t going weak and it still leaked everywhere. My mom tried it too, but formula dribbled horribly, even with the warming cap still on the bottom. Once its off, just go ahead and get your mop out. Geez Louise. We never actually fed our newborn son with the bottle, so I cannot even comment on his acceptance or rejection of the nipple. I would give it ZERO stars if that were a rating option. Very disappointing, especially at this price.
Robert East Middlebury, VT
I wasn’t sure if about trying this one out after trying the old Adiri Natural Nurser that had some minor leaking issues.I have to say I like this new version alot more! I have also figured out what makes it leak – the warming cap! If you put the warming cap on AFTER you pour milk in it, it will break the seal at the valve, causing leaks. Also if you put the bottle cap on, turn it upside down, and then put the warming cap on, it pushes air into the bottle, and out the nipple, causing leaks at the nipple. SO if you need to use the warming cap, put it on before adding milk.I like this one alot better because you can add milk right side up – no more flipping the bottle up side down. The nipple is screw on, so the rim part is hard plastic. The nipple shape looks similar to the old one, except there are some circular pattern underneath it but you can’t feel it. It seems just a little softer than the old one. Otherwise, pretty much the same. (Since we can fill it right side up, I don’t quite understand the need of having the bottom cap screw on. Maybe it’s just for cleaning purposes?) Also because of this, there is no need to flip the bottle, hence, no leakages at the nipple when you put the cap on. I’ve tried to turn it upside down anyway, it does not leak if you push the cap down tightly. It actually CLICKS a little bit. The old version just holds the cap tight via friction. This one if you push down tightly, you can even unscrew the nipple portion along with the cap altogether.I would forget about the warming cap and just pour it into a small breastmilk storage bottle and submerge in hot water to warm it up. Much faster that way anyway, and no leaks.Material-wise, this is better quality than the old one. Although the body may feel like toy type of plastic. It’s hard plastic though. The old version felt like there was a layer of rubber over it, which attracts lint.My 4 month old have refused so many other bottles and is only taking Adiri and Comotomo. She takes both just as well. I personally would prefer the newborn or slow flow for breastfed babies. So far after several weeks she is still going back and forth between bottles and breast.
Vicki Van Buren, IN
I am really enjoying the new Adiri NxGen bottle design!!! Unlike the older model the nipple is removable for thorough cleaning. Also they have developed a “newborn” size which is a little smaller and has only one very small hole in the nipple. This works out very well, especially if you are breastfeeding! Some bottle brands indicated for newborns have nipples with a larger hole that let the milk pour out, easily choking an inexperienced nurser. This bottle however only allows a gentle drip unless the baby is actively working for the milk. This gives them time to take a breather and is much closer to the feeling of breastfeeding. The nipple shape is also great for transitioning from breast to bottle. The tip itself is shorter than other brands which makes it more comfortable for the small mouth of a newborn, and doesn’t go down their throat. You are able to order different colors with the new NxGen design which is a nice touch. I only wish it came in a 3 or 6 pack instead of individually. Love this bottle its great!

The Philips AVENT 4 ounce natural bottle is the most natural way to bottle feed. The wide, breast shaped nipple promotes natural latch on so you can easily combine breast and bottle feeding and the unique comfort petals provides an extra soft, flexible nipple without nipple collapse. In addition, the anti colic newborn flow nipple helps newborns feed comfortably and easily and the ergonomic shape makes it comfortable for parents to hold and easy for small fingers to grasp. Assembly is simple with only a few parts and the wide bottle neck makes filling and cleaning easy. This avent natural bottle is made from polypropylene, a bpa free material and works with all nipples, rings, and caps from the natural line.
- Nipple is soft and breast shaped to promote comfortable latch on
- Twin valves prevent babies from swallowing air to reduce colic
- Ergonomic bottle is easy for parents and babies to grasp
- Wide neck makes filling and cleaning easier
- BPA free polypropylene material is easy to sterilize
Reasons I love these bottles:- Easy to clean! (Very important when baby wants food NOW!)- Easy to assemble – 3 parts and you are ready to go!- If you are looking for convenience, Avent is it. The whole system works super well together!Make sure you also purchase the bottle cleaner and sealing discs.Only complaint is that my son tends to drool a lot with these bottles. Doesn’t really bother me though.
Henrietta New Burnside, IL
Avent is the only brand I will ever use! They’re easy to clean.. & the new bottles only have two parts. No rings which I love. Avent bottles can be a little pricey but you get what you pay for in my opinion. I think it’s worth the extra money.
Karen Bannock, OH
Every baby is different, but for ours, these worked the best. We tried Medela, Playtex, Dr. Browns, Como Tomo…these ended up being her favorites. Easy to clean and hold when feeding.

The ergonomic shape grip area helps mom and baby hold the bottle for optimum feeding results. TruVent bottles include fewer pieces for mom to clean, making TruVent the simplest vented feeding system. TruVent is made of a crystal clear material that is BPA Free.
- Simple 1 piece venting system
- Vent disc reduces colic and air intake
- Diagonal volume markings

I didn’t use these as my main bottles because I used glass bottles. But because I was using glass bottles I wanted to have an easier option for when we were out running errands or at someone else’s house. These were convenient because the liners are disposable, so I didn’t have to worry about not being able to rinse the bottle after feeding. I always had bottled water in the diaper bag and the pre-measured formula packets so these made it very easy. And because I only used them when we were out I didn’t feel that it was as wasteful with the liners as if I had used them all the time.
Gracie Liberty, SC
Our new baby (6 weeks old) likes these bottles. We’ve tried several different kinds (including Gerber and Ventaire) and she seems to like these best. Here’s what I like and don’t like about these:PROS:- Easier to assemble than the Ventaire, less of a hassle to clean due to fewer parts.- The nipples are blue so you can’t confuse the nipple with those from other bottles you may have.- Faster flow, so baby eats quicker (helpful at night but there’s also a downside to this).- The markings on the bottle, which let you check how much formula is left without stopping the feed, are very helpful.CONS:- I did a lot of research on other websites before I bought these (only one other review here on Amazon) and a lot of people said these leak. They can leak, but I’ve noticed it’s mostly “user error” – in other words, they will leak when I’m in a hurry and don’t put them together well.- These get washed in the dishwasher. They are angled, and it’s hard to get the inner rim clean, as formula collects there. So I usually have to rinse them out once I pull them from the dishwasher.- These come with “slow flow” nipples and they’re all you’ll need for a while! These are the fastest slow-flow nipples I have ever seen! My baby sometimes chokes so I have to pull the nipple out of her mouth on occasion.- Baby has to “latch on” correctly or fluid will spill out of her mouth. “Latching on” in this case means having most of the nipple in her mouth.- Our baby has reflux and gas and these bottles do not seem to do much to prevent either.UPDATE: I’ve been using these bottles for nearly a month now. So far 3 of the nipples (we have 6 of these bottles) have collapsed and are unusable, and it seems that number grows daily. My baby can’t drink from them because they don’t vent properly, they shrivel up and the flow stops. I changed my rating from four to two stars because they should last more than a few weeks. I’ll be returning these.

My newborn son loves these bottles when compared to Dr Browns and Avent! He has had some feeding issues but these have been a life-saver.

Podee introduces a baby feeding system that allows to feed babies 3 months+ in an upright position instead of a horizontal position as recommended by pediatricians to help prevent colic, gas build up, ear infections and reflux. Our bottles help prevent colic, gas build up and improves overall feeding. It also helps prevent ear infections. This is a great feeding system for traveling, feeding twins and situations where you just need an extra hand!
- Helps prevent colic and gas build up
- Helps prevent ear infections
- Helps prevent reflux
- Great feeding system for traveling or feeding multiple babies
- Recommended Age: 3+ months
For those of you that don’t know, there was a version of this in the nineteenth century that KILLED babies. The milk couldn’t be cleaned out of the tubes completely and it would rot and cause severe diarrhea which sometimes ended up being fatal. I’m not sure if this tube would have the same problem or if they have since developed some way of cleaning out the ENTIRE tube since then, but I’m not risking my child’s life for convenience! […]

First, to all the parents who are sucking on the bottle to ‘get it started’ for your babies – STOP. LOL, all you have to do is squeeze the nipple once or twice, which pushes the air down and pulls the liquid up. If you read the insert that comes in the package, you would discover that for yourself.The Podee has been a lifesaver for us. It’s great for traveling. We use it when our baby is in her car seat or stroller. It’s great for late night feedings when you’re drowsy and baby is hungry. How many times have we all nodded off a bit and dropped the bottle? Too many times to count. Now, I can hold and rock my daughter comfortably while she eats without worrying about nodding off and upsetting the mood.Everytime I am out in public and my daughter is in her stroller happily sucking away on the Podee, people are amazed by this device, most have never seen it before, and everyone wants to know where to get it!
Dona Homestead, FL
I received this strange-looking bottle from my cousin (who has 4 children of her own) as a shower gift. I was skeptical to use it at first, but after a few months my son had a lot of challenges with gas, spit-up and even projectile spit-up. My son was breast-fed but when i returned to work after 4 months, the sitter had to feed him my milk from a bottle. The gas got terrible and the spit-up ridiculous. I tried this bottle on a whim at home one day, and I was AMAZED at how much gas it cut down!!! After a few months, when my son was too small to hold his own bottle, but could put a binky in and out of his mouth, this bottle was heaven-sent for travel! I could prop this bottle in the car seat or infant chair, and he would simply pop the nipple in and out of his mouth as he wanted it. I ended up buying several of these and now that i’m pregnant with my second child, I will be using these from the start.The down-side to these bottles is the maintenance. You really need to make sure you clean the tubes thoroughly with a tube brush to make sure bacteria does not build up. This was never an issue for us, but if you have a household where there’s a potential for dishes to sit in the sink, you may want to think twice about buying this bottle. The other initial challenge is learning how to put it together. My husband got very frustrated in the beginning, but after a few tries, it was no longer a problem. I read some of the other reviews that said their child swallowed a lot of air using this bottle. I’m not sure how that could happen since the straw literally goes to the bottom of the bottle. My only thought is that if the straws are not assembled correctly or tight enough, or if there’s a hole in one of the straws, then I can see where air might get in. We never had this issue. On the contrary, this bottle drastically reduced the problems and pains he had with gas.Overall this bottle eased the pain and discomfort our baby had with gas (and consequently spit up), and it increased my son’s ability to feed himself (which gave me the opportunity to multi-task during feedings.) This is a thumbs-up all around in my opinion.

She smiles when she sees this bottle. The soft rubbery tip feels great on her gums and those handles are great for little hands. she is almost able to hold it on her own. she doesnt like water but this kind of tricks her into drinking water. Only issue I had you have to spend little time to make sure you correctly have screwed the top on right otherwise it leaks. The cutest bpa free bottle out in my opinion.
Melba Varnville, SC
I’m not sure if my dishwasher is extra hot (it is an extra crappy dishwasher … so maybe?), but it melted the bottle on the top rack. I gotta say, I need a sippy that is truly diswasher safe. I was saddened, since the cup is so cute.

I really do like this bottle, and that it is BPA free. My chief complaint is the sticker that says "BPA Free" as well as the barcode sticker on the bottom was extremely difficult to get off, and after multiple washings and soakings, I’m having to resort to GooBeGone to remove the residue. Cheap stickers that mar the surface should be banned!I was a little confused at the straw as well, but after some testing I figured out how to assemble it so that there was good suction within the bottle. This item doesn’t really come with instructions beyond "Hand wash recommended" and "Not for hot liquids."I also appreciate the sliding cap that covers and bends the straw so that it doesn’t leak if dropped or stored in a diaper bag. Very nice. I also appreciate that the plastic lost its plastic-y taste quickly. That’s good when you have a kiddo who would much prefer water to plastic-tasting water… like everyone else on the planet.
Marion Springfield Gardens, NY
My son (2 yrs old) has the monkey backpack and lunch box so when I saw the water bottle, I figured we had to complete the collection. It’s a good size bottle for him- not too big or heavy when filled. I like that there are 2 sets of the "insides", in case you lose a piece (the inside part that goes on the end of the straw is really tiny) or if you want to use the bottle a second day. But, I don’t like that there are 3 pieces to the straw. It is dishwasher safe and I haven’t had any problems with that. I will say that the BPA free sticker was so stuck on there, that I had to get goo-gone and it still had residual residue even after going through the dishwasher two times. I read that a few others said their bottles leaked, but we haven’t had that problem. You have to put the outside mouth piece into the lid first and then put the straw into that in order for the whole thing to fit together properly. Otherwise, the bottle will leak because the straw isn’t sealed.
Lydia Banner, WY
I want to like this, but I cannot get off the sticker glue from the “BPA Free” sticker that the company placed on the bottle. It looks gross. I’ve scrubbed it, soaked it, tried peeling it off with my finger nail. What the heck did they put in it. The bottle would be cute, except for that. I have not given it to my son, so I cannot review it further because I have not been able to get the sticker crap off of it.Disappointing.
