Love these bottles, glad there’s replacement nipples!
I love these bottles since it’s the only thing my baby would take (we tried MANY bottles before the Comotomo ones). I ruined one of the nipples because my nipple brush has the twisted wire end and I didn’t realize it had come undone… VERY sharp point on the end of that metal! It poked a hole through one of my nipples, but it’s totally not any flaw of the nipple – it was my mistake for not realizing the nipple brush became sharp.I was glad to see I can get replacement nipples and that they have a variety of flow levels. That way I can increase the flow without having to necessarily buy the bigger bottles! YAY!They don’t have markings on the nipple indicating the speed (at least mine don’t), but it’s not that hard to figure out.1 hole is slow flow (0-3 months)2 holes is medium (3-6 months)3 holes is fast (6 months)Y cut is variableI don’t pay attention to the ages though – my 5 month old still uses the slow flow nipples at this time (0-3 months). I don’t want her to get used to the bottles being “easier” and then no longer take the breast. She only eats from bottles 3 times per day, 5 days a week and the rest of the time she’s breastfed. I may get faster nipples later on as she gets older so it won’t take as long for her to eat. It definitely won’t be until after she starts solids though.***************************HERE’S MY FULL REVIEW OF THE COMOTOMO BOTTLES(since Amazon won’t let me link it!):********************************************We tried to introduce bottles around 10 weeks but it didn’t work, even when I left the house for 20-60 minutes. Since I wasn’t going back to work until 14 weeks, we didn’t try too hard since it didn’t seem worth it to upset her so much when she didn’t NEED to take a bottle yet. Luckily, my husband took 6 weeks off work after I returned to work before we started her in daycare, so he would be the one trying to introduce her to bottles instead of a stranger.I prepared for my first day back to work by purchasing many, many different types of bottles for my husband to try. On that first day, our daughter did not eat for 10 hours. My husband tried many different bottles (but not all) by the time I got home. A nurse at her doctor’s office said to NOT offer her the breast when I got home, because she would learn that if she held out long enough she would get mommy’s breast. So when I got home I tried two more bottles, the Comotomo one being the second. She sucked down 3 ounces! And I was the one feeding her! Two hours later, she took another three ounces. When my husband tried to offer her the Comotomo bottle the next day she refused it at first, took a 30 minute nap, and then she accepted it and drank 3 ounces. We tried SEVEN different bottle/nipple combinations before this one: Dr. Browns, Avent, Playtex (3 different nipple types), Medela, NUK. We were going to try some others but I noticed their nipples weren’t TOO different than what we already tried… and the Breastflow bottles I didn’t think would make a difference either.I felt like it was the nipple base size that didn’t work for her with other bottles, and I was right. I have very large breasts, and the Comotomo nipple pressed against her nose and cheeks like she is used to while feeding. I swear that is what made the difference. I immediately ordered two more. I don’t care about the price – if you feel it’s too expensive, either you have a baby that WILL take another bottle (and then you don’t HAVE to use this one), or this is the only thing that works and you are actually so cheap that you put a price on getting your baby to eat. Maybe after she gets used to bottle feeding, a normal less-expensive bottle will work.I do like a lot of things about this bottle:- It works!- The nipple base is very large so it presses against my baby’s nose and cheeks like a real breast.- It allows baby to latch on the same as with a breast.- It doesn’t leak. You have to squeeze it to get some out… it won’t even drip if you don’t!- It’s squeezable.- It’s only 3 parts.- It fits in my Munchkin bottle warmer (the 2006 model… a hand-me-down that works great!)- It’s durable – I’ve had hard plastic and glass break on me when dropping a bottle. This doesn’t break.- Easy to wash.- Even at 3 months, the baby can kind of hold on to it. I think it will be easy to use for self-feeders.- My daughter can get every last drop out of the bottle – no breastmilk wasted!- It’s cool looking.- It has air vents.- The lids are secure and hold the nipple in place so even if you squeeze the bottle, nothing comes out in the lid.I don’t like:- It’s hard to read the ounces… but on the other hand, the markings can’t wash off!- I can’t pump directly into it – but honestly they are so expensive and I produce so much that there’s no way I could use these as storage containers. I use Mother’s Milkmate.I don’t know if our Inchbug labels stick to it yet. Those are supposed to stay on even through the dishwasher, but I’m wondering if that will work on this material. I will update when I find out. I might just buy an Orbit label instead (also from Inchbug) if it doesn’t work.UPDATE: I’ve used the Inchbug small rectangle labels and affixed them to the collar of the bottle and they have not worn off. The two teachers in my daughter’s daycare room really like the bottles because they aren’t breakable, don’t leak, and look neat. We still love these bottles and I have yet to try regular ones again since these are working so well. I still only have 3 bottles, which is exactly how many she needs for a 6 hour day.
Love our Comotomo bottles
Not much to say about these nipples – they fit the comotomo bottles as expected. 1 hole allows for a slow flow. We don’t typically have any issues with rivers of milk going down our child’s face when using these. Haven’t had any issues with nipple confusion as we’re breast feeding and bottle feeding.
Ordered based off reviews.
I can’t wait to try this product after much research. Our son is due in 1.5 weeks and should get to create our own opinion in the near future!!
Love, love, love these spoons. These are soft and flexible for babies.i very like it .it is nice. .. .
Must get variable flow nipples if you make homemade goat milk formula
My husband fed my baby breast milk in these bottles starting at around 3 months. Around 12 months, we started supplementing with breast milk with homemade goat milk formula when my production couldn’t keep up (got the recipe online and it is GREAT). The 3 hole nipple was fine for the breast milk, but with the goat milk formula you absolutely MUST have the variable nipple. Our baby got fussy when feeding and we couldn’t figure it out. We tried to drink through the 3 hole and discovered we could hardly get any milk out! All of the added oils to the goat milk, molassas, nutritional yeast, etc, etc, made the formula thicker than breast milk… These are awesome bottles. We have been VERY pleased. Worth every penny.
Works great for my family
I’m already a fan of their bottles and since my son is getting older and eats more, the 6 months nipples are a great upgrade and the price was decent. My son had no issues taking to the comotomo bottles from the start.
Slowest flow available
I needed to bottle feed my son at day 4 since my milk supply was very low and it took time to develop. I tried Avent, gerber, nuk, mam bottles all with slow flow and wide latch. This nipple was the only one which is truely slow flow and baby needs to work in order to get the flow going. When filled with water and tested water did not drop on its own unlike the nipples where water would just start flowing.My son then had no problem going back to the breast when milk supply came in. Overall I am very happy with this product.
The best for breastfed babies
My daughter (who’s still being breastfed) loved them from the first day! The best option to transition from breast to bottle.
We ended up purchasing the larger Comotomo bottles instead of buying the smaller ones and having to buy more larger ones when she starts drinking more. The larger bottles come with nipples for babies older than 3 months so you have to purchase the 0-3 month nipples to put on them. They work well, she can still drink very fast if she chooses but that is usually only for a few seconds before she slows down. Love Comotomo!
I can’t say enough about this line
I loooove Comotomo bottles. The variable flow is perfect for a oatmeal or rice additive to formula or a thick fluid. I love the line and the different nipple variations.
My baby is always using this.It’s really strong and nice. I will recommend it to my friends.It’s the better If the price can be cheaper than this.
Great addition to the comotomo bottle
These are a must have as an addition to the comotomo bottles. My 4 month old had no problems with this nipples when we switched from the beginner nipples to the 3-6 month ones.
