I’ve been very busy with the “not so important” stuff that we need to buy for baby that I forgot all about feeding bottles. I have 3 choices of feeding bottles that I like to research on. First will be Tommee Tippee, then Avent then Pigeon.
I got interested with Tommee Tippee because they have a tag line of “Closer to nature”. Why? Their nipples and bottles are shaped like a mother’s breast so switching from breast feeding to bottle will not confuse the baby.
I’m so addicted to Tommee Tippee! I like the shape of the bottle, which reviewers say that has a nice grip on Mommies and baby. I like the grey colored bottles because they look so manly and cute! I’ll buy the Tommee Tippee type of bottle like this:
There are many types but I’ll make sure to get the closure to nature, anti-colic, BPA free for babies with excessive spit-up, fussiness and gas.
If I get the whole Tommee Tippee Closure to Nature range including electric steam sterilizer and breast pump, I’ll buy two 5 oz bottles and, two 9 oz bottles and 2 11 oz bottles. Total of 6 bottles which is the ideal number of feeding bottles.
Next stop are Avent bottles. Avent is like the default bottles for babies. Every where I look, I see babies and Moms carrying the whole range of Avent bottles and pacifiers and even bibs and teether. I want to try these bottles too because I want to know what the fuss is about.
Avent has a wide range of feeding bottles too. They have cute designs and colors as well but they look normal. I’ll probably buy two 9 oz bottles from Avent and it will be this type below, the PES bottles for fussing babies and is also anti-colic.
Next group of bottles are Pigeon feeding bottles. There are a lot of good feedback for Pigeon Bottles and they are quite cheap here in Singapore. I’ll probably buy 2 bottles of these traditional brand. They have smaller nipples for new born so I like that. I’ll probably buy one 9 oz bottle just for testing.
If we have extra budget, I’ll also try and buy a Medela feeding bottle and a Dr. Browns bottle just to see what it does. Each bottle costs are high and I want to know why they are expensive.
