Tommee Tippee Review

Whether you breastfeed or formula feed, choosing the right bottle is important for both you and baby.  You want something that will prevent air from getting in baby's belly, be BPA free, and also be easy for your little one to use.  There are so many options out there, it can be hard to figure out which brand to initially try.  Once you find the brand that fits your needs, you'll be a loyal customer! Whatever bottle brand you choose though, make sure baby gets every last drop of milk!

Tommee Tippee is an internationally renowned baby product brand that offers bottles, breast pumps, pacifiers, sippy cups, and other baby feeding products.  I'm very familiar with the brand and have seen Tommee Tippee bottles in the store.  For whatever reason, I've never owned any of their products before.  The products grow with your child from infant and beyond, so Tommee Tippee will be there every step of the way.  All of Tommee Tippee's goods are BPA free to give parents everywhere one less thing to worry about.  How about giving a new mom or a mom-to-be a bottle set, a bottle warmer, or even a pacifier? Every new baby needs those things.  Keep Tommee Tippee in mind for all baby needs for present and future.

Scarlett is now 5 months old.  She drinks more ounces now than before and seems to always be hungry.  She has the appetite of a 15 year old boy at only 22 weeks old! I've been wanting to try a new bottle brand for a while now.  My current brand has been disappointing me lately for various reasons.  

When I came across Tommee Tippee, I was really interested to try their bottles.  The bottles are smaller and easier to hold, and they also allow you to be closer to baby while they feed. I'll take anything to be closer to my daughter no matter what!

Scarlett and I were sent the Tommee Tippee Closer to Nature Tip it Up Bottle to Cup Set.  The set contains two feeding bottles and one first sips transitioning cup.  The bottles are for 3m+ while the sippy cup is for 4m+.  While we're not quite ready for a sippy cup yet, it's good to have one at the ready.

I love that the bottles are pink and feature an adorable flower design.  My daughter is very girly and these are right up her alley and mine too! The feeding bottles go up to 9 ounces which is nice, since my old bottles only went up to 8 ounces. Scarlett eats 5 ounces at every feeding except her dinner time feed when she gets 4 ounces and a whole jar of baby food.  

These arrived right around her dinnertime feed and I was curious to put them to the test.  I put 4 ounces of formula in the bottle and gave it to her to see how she'd react.  Some babies have issues with taking to a new bottle nipple, but she had no problem.  Nothing really seems to phase her.  As long as she's eating, she's happy! The bottle was easy for me to hold (although we're working on having her hold the bottle herself now too), and she did great taking to the new bottle.  If you do breastfeed, the breast like shape of the bottle offers an easy latch on for baby, and the flex and stretch ripples mimic breastfeeding.  

Maybe next time I'll have a milkshake in my bottle instead of formula?  I like change.

She got every last drop of milk with no issues.  On my old bottle, sometimes the nipple would get clogged throughout the feed and if I couldn't get it unclogged fast enough, Scarlett would be hysterical.  I told you, the girl likes to eat! I didn't have that problem with the Tommee Tippee bottle which was awesome.

We're not using the sippy cup yet, but the soft silicone spout helps your little one to drink easily.  The cup is BPA free and dishwasher safe which is conveniently fantastic.  The removable handle helps for training baby to transition from bottle to cup effortlessly.  I'm sure we'll be using this in no time though.

I'm very satisfied with Tommee Tippee products and will be using them as my go-to bottle brand from now on.  If you're looking to make the switch from your old baby essentials company to a new one, I highly recommend Tommee Tippee.
