Even if you’re a minimalist when it comes to baby gear (and let’s face it — the amount of baby gear you can accumulate is staggering), a baby bottle is one of the must-haves for many parents. It’s right up there with diapers (unless you’re bravely trying elimination communication).

Whether you’re breastfeeding or formula feeding, going back to work or staying home, there is a very high likelihood that at some point it will be helpful for your baby to take a bottle.

If you’re formula feeding, you’ll be using a bottle 6 to 12 times per day depending on your baby’s age.

And if you’re breastfeeding, a caregiver may give your baby pumped milk in a bottle if you return to work. Or you may decide that your partner can also take care of some feedings by giving pumped milk in a bottle, which gives them great bonding time with baby — and gives you a chance to sleep for a longer stretch or run an errand that takes more than 2 hours.

Bottom line: You’ll spend a lot of time feeding your baby during the first year of their life, and selecting the right baby bottle might make the process much easier.

Plus, there are enough things to worry about as a new parent. Complications of bottle feeding (gas, spit-up, colic, and high maintenance clean-up) shouldn’t be among them. A good baby bottle used correctly may help.

Remember, though:

No particular bottle is proven to be better than any other at lessening gas, spit-up, colic, or other medical conditions. And notably, breastfed babies can have these issues as well.

Fortunately, we’ve got you covered. We read countless reviews, polled real-life parents, and tested some products ourselves to develop our list. So whether you’re building your baby registry or frantically searching the internet at 2 a.m. because your baby simply will. not. take. the. bottle. — we’ve got an option for you.

To select the best baby bottles, we considered various factors like:

  • price
  • nipple and bottle shape
  • how they work
  • the materials they’re made of

We also looked at customer reviews to see how parents and guardians rated bottles in terms of how well they worked, how easy or difficult they were to clean, and value.

A note on price

Many of the bottles we include below come in value packs of two or more, but we’ve noted the approximate price of each individual bottle.

  • $ = under $8
  • $$ = $8–$15
  • $$$ = over $15

Best baby bottle to reduce gas/colic

Dr. Brown’s Natural Flow Original Baby Bottle

Price: $

As the name implies, this is a classic. Dr. Brown’s reasonably priced bottles have been preferred by many parents for many years now.

The two-way vent system is designed to mimic the positive pressure flow of breastfeeding. This may make it one of the best when it comes to minimizing air intake — and therefore gas, spitting, burping, and all the screaming that can accompany those uncomfortable things — for your baby.

You can use a variety of nipple flow sizes — such as preemie, newborn, and older baby — so you can adjust the flow of milk based on your baby’s ability to drink.


  • design helps baby take in less air when feeding
  • lots of nipple sizes available


  • many parts to clean

Best baby bottle for breastfed babies

Comotomo Baby Bottle

Price: $$

This bottle was — along with Dr. Brown’s — by far the top parent favorite in our research. The Comotomo Baby Bottle, while pricier than many other options, was reported to provide a superior feel and function when it comes to mimicking mama’s breast.

It’s made of soft, squeezable silicone that babies seem to love holding — and also allows you to control the flow to help mimic mom’s letdown reflex. It has a very wide nipple base and a more realistic nipple shape and feel. This allows baby to latch and suck in a very similar manner to when they nurse at the breast.

For moms worried about nipple confusion in their breastfed baby, this bottle earns the top spot.

It also has a venting system built into the nipple base (rather than separate parts), which makes it easy to clean and may be helpful for reducing gas. All parents we talked to, whether feeding formula or breast milk, loved this bottle.


  • easy for babies to hold
  • mimics breast shape and feel


  • nipples may need to be replaced over time
  • pricier than other options on our list

Easiest to clean baby bottle

Philips Avent Natural Baby Bottle

Price: $

Another all-around favorite, the Philips Avent Natural baby bottle is a great choice for those looking for a venting system and a design with a wide base and shorter nipple, and best of all — ease of cleaning.

It doesn’t have a bunch of tiny pieces to deal with. (In our book, parenting is complicated enough. If there’s something you can simplify, it’s a win.)

Parents love the shape and ease of use and report that this bottle has a high acceptance rate by babies. It comes in several sizes and nipple flow rates.


  • simple design with few parts
  • venting helps prevent gas
  • sippy cup lids that fit on bottles also available


  • buying more nipples can get confusing since the brand makes a ton of different bottle shapes

Best baby bottle for babies who don’t like taking a bottle

MAM Easy Start Anti-Colic Bottle

Price: $

MAM is well known for its pacifier nipples, which have a shape and texture that a very high percentage of babies seem to love. They’ve brought that same technology and experience to their baby bottle nipples.

While every baby’s different in their bottle preference, these orthodontic nipples have a soft texture and shape that many babies — even those who aren’t convinced a bottle is the way to go — accept.

This bottle also has a great venting system designed to minimize air swallowing. It’s reasonably priced and comes in a variety of sizes and nipple flow rates.


  • unique nipple shape and texture appeal to babies
  • has a venting system that’s designed to minimize gas


  • many parts to clean

Best baby bottles for preemies

nanobébé Breastmilk Bottle

Price: $$

This is one of the most unique baby bottles out there — it’s actually shaped like a breast. This shape allows easier warming of milk — which helps prevent over warming, which damages breast milk — and faster cooling once refrigerated to help prevent bacteria growth.


  • may help preemie babies transition from bottles to breast more easily
  • unique shape helps warm milk more effectively


  • shape may not fit in all bottle warmers

Dr. Brown’s Options+ Slow Flow Bottle Set

Price: $

The Dr. Brown’s Options+ bottles have all the same great benefits as the Original Dr. Brown’s mentioned above. Parents love the venting system which is by far the top-rated by parents when it comes to reducing gas, colic, and spit-up.

Pair the Options+ bottle with a Dr. Brown preemie nipple, which is the slowest flow available, to make a feeding setup ideal for the tiniest humans.


  • top rated venting system
  • nipple options are available for preemie babies


  • many parts to clean

Best baby budget bottle

Medela Breast Milk Bottles

Price: $

If you don’t think you’ll be using bottles very often, are a fan of simplicity, or just don’t want to break the bank, Medela baby bottles are a great option.

Several of them come free with your Medela breast pump (which may also be free, through your health insurance) and you can purchase more at a reasonable price.

They’re simple, easy to clean, have several nipple flow sizes, and attach directly to your pump for easy pumping and feeding.


  • bottles are simply designed and fit Medela pumps
  • good for milk storage and feeding


  • no anti-gas technology

Best baby bottles for older babies

Munchkin LATCH Transition Cup

Price: $$

While technically a cup and not a bottle, the Munchkin LATCH Transition Cup can be used for babies as young as 4 months old.

Most doctors recommend starting to introduce a cup around 6 months, and most babies can transition off a bottle around 1 year. Transitioning from a bottle to a cup is important to prevent dental and some feeding issues.


  • helpful for making the transition from bottles to cups
  • can be a good option for babies who won’t take a bottle


  • some reviewers mentioned their baby liked to chew on the spout rather than drink from it

Shop now at Amazon

Munchkin LATCH Bottle

Price: $$

This is the bottle version of the cup mentioned above, and many parents love it. It features an ergonomic shape, a simple venting system (aka easy to clean), and a soft flexible nipple that many babies accept.

There is also a valve at the bottle that’s designed to help prevent air bubbles.


  • anti-colic design helps prevent air bubbles from forming
  • compatible with popular breast pump models


  • the flexible nipple can collapse during feeding
  • some parents didn’t like the valve design

Best glass baby bottles

Jooby Boob Diamond

Price: $$$

While all bottles are now required to be made from BPA-free plastic, many parents prefer to use glass bottles to avoid the risk of leaching chemicals into their baby’s milk — especially when heating milk or sterilizing bottles.

The Joovy Boob Diamond does a nice job with its venting system, ease of washing, and silicone sleeve option that can help with grip and prevent breakage if the bottle is dropped.


  • glass design could mean less chemical exposure
  • easy to clean
  • silicone sleeve can help prevent breakage


  • glass is heavier and could break
  • not ideal for travel or on the go

Shop now at Amazon

Evenflo Feeding Classic Glass Bottle

Price: $

These glass bottles from Evenflo have been around for years — they might even be what you drank from as a baby.

They’re wildly popular for a number of reasons: The twisted design makes them a little easier to grip than some glass bottles, they’re easy to clean, they’re glass (versus plastic) for those who prefer it, and they’re inexpensive. You can get a value pack of these bottles for about $3 per bottle.


  • trusted bottles that have been used by parents for years
  • easy grip design
  • good value for the price


  • glass can break

Best baby bottle with a bag

Playex Baby Nurser with Drop-In Liners

Price: $

While a little old school, many parents love the Playtex baby bottles with disposable liners. They have a disposable bag insert that you fill with breast milk or formula and then toss after feeding. This makes cleanup a breeze! You really just have to wash the bottle nipple, which is great for parents on the go.

Interestingly, this bottle also ranks right up at the top for babies with gas or colic issues. The bag collapses on itself as your baby drinks, so less air gets gulped. These bottles come in a variety of sizes and nipple flow rates.


  • great for using pumped and stored breast milk inside a bottle
  • easy to clean


  • liners can get expensive
  • some reviewers experienced leaking, which could become an issue

Baby bottles have come a long way in recent years. While options used to be more limited, you can now find bottles made from plastic, silicone, glass, or stainless steel.


Plastic bottles are easy to find, lightweight, easy to clean, and generally hold up well to frequent drops.

As of 2012, they’re no longer made with BPA, a chemical that caused some concern and one that the Food and Drug Administration (FDA) is still researching for safety.

Bottles and cups made before 2012 likely still contain BPA, so it’s best to avoid older hand-me-downs.

Keep in mind that even if a bottle says it’s BPA-free, there’s a chance it could leach other chemicals, especially when heated. Research from 2011 found that many commercially available plastics — even those that were BPA-free — still leached chemicals.

If you’re concerned about chemicals or plan to heat milk in the bottle, you may prefer not to use plastic.


Some baby bottles are now made with nontoxic, food-grade silicone.

Similar to plastic bottles, silicone bottles are lightweight and relatively easy to use. They’re softer and more pliable than plastic bottles, so you don’t have to worry about them breaking.

Some silicone bottles can be turned all the way inside-out, making them easier to clean than other types of bottles.


Many top rated bottle brands have a glass option available.

Glass bottles don’t have the risk of chemical leaching that plastic may have, but they’re heavier. Shattering glass is a safety concern as well. They can last a long time, provided they don’t break.

Stainless steel

Stainless steel bottles are a lightweight alternative to glass. They can dent if dropped, but some come with protective sleeves.

They can’t be microwaved, and some caregivers dislike not being able to see how much milk is left in the bottle as their baby drinks.

A 2015 study found that stainless steel may leach into food. However, the research focused on acidic food that was cooked in stainless steel.


In addition to the materials of the actual bottle, another primary consideration as you shop is the bottle nipple. Nipples come in a variety of shapes, sizes, and flow rates.

There are:

  • regular bottle nipples, which come in slow, medium, and fast flows — sometimes labeled 1, 2, or 3
  • orthodontic nipples, which are designed to better mimic the human nipple
  • specialized nipple sizes, such as for premature babies
  • nipples specifically designed for babies with cleft palate

Each baby is different in their needs and preferences, so it can take a little trial and error to figure out the best option for your little one.

Start by making sure you’re selecting a nipple that’s the right flow rate for your baby’s age and size. Typically, younger babies should use slower nipples, and older babies should use faster ones.

If you use a flow that’s too fast for your newborn, they may choke and take in a lot of air, which can cause gas and fussiness. If you use a flow that’s too slow for your older baby, they may become frustrated because feeding is so much work.

If you’re primarily breastfeeding, you may want to start with a bottle nipple that mimics the natural breast to avoid nipple confusion.


Depending on the size and whether you get them in a value pack, baby bottles tend to range from $2 up to $20 each. You can typically buy replacement parts (such as nipples or sealing rings) separately as needed.

Bottle shape

Bottles come in lots of different shapes. There are:

  • standard, or narrow, bottles
  • wide-neck bottles, which have a wider opening than standard bottles
  • angled bottles, which are said to help prevent your baby from swallowing air
  • bottles with bags, which are meant to mimic breastfeeding and make cleanup easy

Some bottles may also have indents on the side to make them easier to hold.

There’s no one “best” bottle shape. It all comes down to what works best for your baby, and what’s easiest for them (and you!) to use.

You can help things go smoothly by following a few bottle-feeding tips:

  • When first introducing the bottle to a breastfed baby (preferably after 4 weeks of age, once breastfeeding is well established), it may help to have a different person — such as your partner — try giving the bottle. Baby is more likely to reject the bottle if they have the option of the breast.
  • Try offering the bottle an hour or two after baby nurses (so when they’re hungry — but not hangry, if you know what we mean).
  • If you give your bottle a good ol’ college try and your sweet pea just won’t have it, you may want to try another option. Babies, for reasons best known to them, can be very picky.
  • Cuddle your baby close, and coo and talk to them. This helps with bonding and development of communication skills. It also reduces stress — for both of you!
  • Keep your baby slightly propped up in the crook of your arm, so they aren’t trying to drink lying flat.
  • Never microwave a bottle of breast milk or formula. This can damage breast milk and cause “hot spots” that can burn your baby. To warm the bottle, use a bottle warmer or sit the bottle in a mug of hot or warm water for a few minutes. Always check the temperature of the milk by dripping a bit on your wrist before offering it to your baby.
  • Make sure you’re using the right nipple size — too small and your baby will have to work hard and may become frustrated; too large may have your baby gagging and choking.
  • Keep the bottle angled to help with less air swallowing, and burp your baby once or twice during the feeding session.
  • Keep your baby upright for 15 to 30 minutes after feeding to help reduce spit-up.
  • Don’t let your baby fall asleep with a bottle or prop the bottle up for your baby to take by themselves. While convenient, these practices can increase the risk for tooth decay and ear infections.
  • Keep your bottles, nipples, and all other parts clean. Wash everything with hot soapy water and bottle brushes. You don’t need to sterilize bottles after every use, but do this occasionally. Babies have immature immune systems, and are more susceptible to infections than adults.
  • Don’t push your baby to finish the bottle if they seem done. It’s good for babies to learn to follow their own hunger cues. If you’re worried that your little one isn’t eating enough, give your pediatrician a call.
  • If your baby seems colicky, try:
    • adjusting the interval between feedings
    • reducing the amount given at a single feeding
    • talking to your pediatrician about switching formulas
    • laying your baby tummy down across your arm and rubbing their back
    • swaddling or rocking to see if this helps keep your little one more comfortable

What is the best soap to wash baby bottles with?

According to the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention (CDC), there’s no specific kind of soap to use for cleaning baby bottles. However, some parents like to avoid scented dish soaps or soaps with harsh ingredients.

You can also use soaps that are made specifically for cleaning baby bottles and dishes, like this one from Dapple, which is certified clean and free from phthalates, parabens, sulfates, synthetic fragrances, and dyes.

How often should you clean a baby bottle?

Bottles should be cleaned after every feeding with soap and water to avoid bacteria from forming.

When should you replace a baby bottle?

Replace the bottle if it cracks or chips. Nipples should also be replaced if they crack, rip, or show discoloration. If they start to wear thin or feel sticky, it’s a sign they are deteriorating.

You’ll spend a lot of time feeding your baby during their first year. Regardless of your feeding choice, you may give your baby a bottle at some point (or around the clock).

Some babies don’t accept bottles at first or struggle with gas, spitting, and colic. Choosing the bottle that best fits your baby’s needs may help make the process smoother and more comfortable for both of you.

When to consult a doctor

If your baby is having feeding issues or fussiness that isn’t improving with a change in bottle or nipple type, talk to their pediatrician.

We hope this has helped you sift through some options for bottles to help get you and your baby through the first year well-rested and well-fed. Cheers!

The Best Baby Bottles of 2022

Here are 11 great baby bottles to consider.

1. Comotomo Baby Natural Feel Baby Bottle

Best All Round Baby Bottle

View on Amazon

View on BuyBuyBaby

View on Walmart

View on Target

Comotomo’s Natural Feel bottles are specifically designed to mimic the natural nursing process. The nipples are shaped like a woman’s breast with a wide mound your baby can easily latch onto. You can choose from multiple flow options, but the standard “slow flow” nipple has a single hole to help your baby learn how to suck and swallow.

One of the features we love for breastfed babies is the silicone material. It’s designed to be soft and squeezy so your baby can hold it comfortably and feel like they’re still close to mom. If they have a hard time getting the milk out, a little squeeze from you will help it flow again.

The silicone is 100 percent free from risky plastics including BPA, PVC, and phthalate.

If you have exclusively breastfed your baby or have had a difficult time transitioning to a bottle, the soft, natural feel of this bottle may be just the thing you need.

This bottle also comes with dual anti-colic vents, an extra-wide neck for easy cleaning, and an anti-leak locking system. All of the materials are dishwasher safe and can even be put in boiling water for extra sterilization.

The standard bottle holds 5 ounces of liquid and comes with a cap. You can also get an 8-ounce bottle, but it will come with a “medium flow” nipple with two holes instead of one.

  • The nipple has a wide base to mimic the shape and feel of your breast.
  • Silicone bottle can be squeezed and feels soft like your skin.
  • The wide neck makes the bottle super easy to wash.
  • Dual vents prevent colic and gas.
  • No measurement markings to keep track of milk flow and consumption.
  • Anti-leak lids need to be on extra tight or leaking may occur.


nanobebe Breastmilk Baby Bottles
Best Bottle for Breastfed Babies

View on Amazon

View on Nanobebe

One of the latest rages in the bottle industry is to produce bottles for babies, like Nanobebe does, that look like a real breast. That solves a dilemma for moms who need to switch between breastfeeding and bottle feeding.

If a bottle looks more like a breast, your finicky baby won’t be likely to refuse it. And if they decide they prefer the bottle, they might not object if you try to switch back to the breast because the bottle will look and feel similar to your breast.

You’ll notice when you look at Nanobebe bottles that the shape is remarkably similar to a breast. The bottom of the bottle curves inward, making it comfortable for you to hold.

The design also helps with faster warming and cooling to preserve nutrients and prevent the growth of bacteria.

  • This bottle warms up to two times faster than some other brands.
  • It also cools up to two times faster when you put it in the refrigerator.
  • Looks like a breast if you’re trying to trick your baby by visuals alone.
  • The curved bottom design allows you to stack them, which saves you cabinet space.
  • Easy to clean.
  • Helps prevent nipple confusion.
  • The design of the bottle makes it difficult to get all the milk out of the bottle with some creative positioning while holding your baby.
  • There can be some leakage issues if you aren’t careful.

3. Philips Avent Newborn Bottle

Best Bottle for Preemies

Check Price

The Philips Avent line is one of the leaders in the baby bottle industry, and one reason we love them is because of their specific bottle for newborns and preemies.

Each only holds four ounces, which is perfect for your preemie. You won’t end up throwing any milk away as you would if you had larger bottles that your preemie baby couldn’t finish in one feeding.

The bottle uses an anti-colic system built into the nipple and doesn’t contain extra parts that are hard to take apart or difficult to clean. This will be appreciated by moms worried their babies are taking in air when drinking, but who also don’t want any extra washing up to do.

However, the reason we love this preemie bottle is the unique nipple design. Not only does it resemble the breast, but it also has a shorter nipple and a very slow flow for controlled feedings, plus the “comfort petals” inside stop it from collapsing. Combined, these features ensure your small baby gets the milk they need without being overpowered.

These bottles are BPA-free and have a wide-neck opening that makes it easy to fill without spilling. They can go in the dishwasher and be sterilized.

  • Perfect size for preemies.
  • The anti-colic features reduce the amount of milk that gets spit up.
  • The slow nipple speed won’t overwhelm your new baby.
  • You can’t get the last little bit out of the bottle without holding it straight up.

4. Dr. Brown’s Original Bottle

Best Bottle for Gassy Babies

Check Price

Ask any mom who’s had a baby with colic and chances are she knows all about Dr. Brown’s bottles. A staple in many households, their patented venting system has been clinically proven to reduce colic, spit-up, burping, and gas (1). They also preserve the essential vitamins in your breast milk, which can deteriorate upon exposure to air in conventional bottles.

How does it work? The internal vent system eliminates vacuum pressure and reduces oxidation caused by air bubbles. Air routes through the internal vent system to bypass the milk and give your baby a comfortable feeding experience.

The vent system is also designed to work with the silicone nipple, which has a slow flow for more controlled feedings.

Dr. Brown’s Original Bottles are made of BPA-free plastic and silicone. We love that the bottles attach directly to most of the best breast pumps without needing any extra bottles.

If your baby has colic or gas, we definitely suggest trying out Dr. Brown’s. They may also be a good choice for babies who still breastfeed regularly since this brand consistently earns good reviews when it comes to avoiding bottle confusion. Dr. Brown’s boasts that it is similar to breastfeeding because both don’t have any extra air in the milk.

The original bottle holds 4 ounces, but other size options are available; each bottle features convenient measurement markings.

  • Clinically proven to reduce gas, colic, spit-ups, and burping.
  • Helps preserve essential vitamins for the baby’s health.
  • Slow-flow nipple allows for paced feeding.
  • Fits most breast pumps for easy pumping and storing.
  • Helps prevent nipple confusion.
  • It requires extra work when cleaning the vent system.
  • Measurement markings can be hard to see.

5. PopYum Anti-Colic Baby Bottles

Best Baby Bottle for Formula

View on Amazon

View on BuyBuyBaby

View on Walmart

View on Popyum

If you’ve ever used formula, you know it’s not easy, like many people assume. While it may be easier than breastfeeding in some ways, it can be harder in many other ways.

Think of all the measuring and mixing you constantly have to do! You have to make sure you always have sanitized bottles at the ready, that you’ve packed enough formula in your diaper bag, and that the milk is always at the right temperature.

If your baby doesn’t get fed right away, this can lead to an unhappy baby, which equals an unhappy mom.

That’s why we like this bottle from PopYum. They have a funnel which makes it super easy to load the formula into the bottle. Then it also stops the formula from falling into the water chamber.

With only one hand, you can prepare a bottle. The bottle stores the formula and water separately so you can set up the formula in the bottle for later. Then, when you need the bottle, simply press the bottle’s buttons, shake it up, and then it’s ready for your baby.

If you’re a breastfeeding mom, you might also want to have a look at this cool bottle. It’s great for breast milk since you can isolate it at the bottom of the bottle. In addition, it won’t touch the nipple or vents until you’ve pressed the buttons.

  • Anti-colic nipples and vents can relieve colic symptoms.
  • Easy to prepare bottles one-handed so that you can hold your baby in the other arm.
  • Available in five and nine-ounce bottles.
  • Only five parts included, which is much less than some other options.
  • Some babies struggled to get milk out, while others got milk too fast.
  • Many parents found the bottles leaked.
  • Not very durable, which is disappointing considering the high price.
  • The nipples are short and wide, which many babies didn’t like.

6. Playtex Nurser with Disposable Liners

Best Baby Bottle for Travel

Check Price

If there’s one way to keep things neat and clean while you travel, it’s disposable liners. Once your baby is done feeding, simply throw the liner away. The bottle stays clean and you don’t have to worry about anything lingering in your diaper bag and smelling bad.

Playtex has made a super simple liner system: all you have to do is drop the liner into the bottle and you’re good to go. The bottles have a special lip at the top to catch onto the bottle, so you don’t have to worry about it slipping down or moving.

Then, just fill up the liner, screw on the nipple lid, and the bottle is ready.

When you’re done, all you have to do is remove the liner and dispose of it. We understand there are a lot of eco-friendly moms out there, but don’t worry — the liners are recyclable. (In the plastic bag recycling bin at grocery stores, not the regular recycle bin).

One of the reasons we really like these is because they weren’t just designed to make life easier; they actually improve your baby’s feeding experience. This is because the soft liner collapses down as your baby feeds, so the flow mimics a natural breastfeeding experience. And prevent air bubbles from mixing with the milk.

Both the bottle and the liners are made from BPA-free, PVC-free and phthalate-free plastic. The liners have even been pre-sterilized so you can open them up and add them to the bottle without extra steps.

  • Simple liner system is easy and quick to use everyday or while traveling.
  • Liner is designed to mimic the breastfeeding experience.
  • Anti-colic and anti-gas.
  • Saving the bags to recycle at a grocery store can get irritating.

How much milk do you produce? How much milk does your baby actually drink each time they feed?

Chances are, there will always be a difference between the two. That’s why a mom who breastfeeds needs to make sure they have a collection of bottles on hand to store that difference.

One of our favorite picks is from Medela. These collection bottles are affordable and come in a six-pack and are great to use when you’re exclusively pumping. They’re the number one physician-recommended breastmilk storage product in the United States.

Each BPA-free bottle holds five ounces and comes with a screw-on lid to keep the milk safe in the refrigerator or freezer. These plastic baby bottles have been designed to retain the breastmilk’s beneficial properties, even after storage.

The feature we like most for pumping moms is the versatility. All Medela bottles are designed to work with a variety of breast pumps so you won’t have to worry about purchasing a different pump if you already have one.

This kit doesn’t come with nipples, but the bottles are compatible with Medela nipples and collars and some other brands of nipples may work, too.

They can go in the dishwasher and the millimeter markers let you know exactly how much you’ve pumped. They’re easy to clean and hold up better in the refrigerator than disposable bags because they aren’t as prone to ripping or leaking.

  • Since it comes with six bottles, you’ll have a lot of total storage space.
  • The millimeter markers remain even after repeated washing.
  • Affordable when compared to other bottle sets.
  • Bigger bottles available (8oz).
  • Some moms have complained about how thin these bottles are.
  • No way to write on or label the bottle.

8. Pura Kiki Stainless Steel Infant Bottle

Best Stainless Steel Baby Bottle

Check Price

Bottles are essential for a certain period and then, once your baby grows, you suddenly find yourself with a bunch of bottles to store away in the back of the cabinet.

This bottle from Pura helps solve that problem. It has a unique bottle evolution system: simply trade out the silicone lids to adapt the main base to your child’s needs. It starts off as a bottle, but can then be used as a sippy bottle, straw bottle, a regular sports bottle, or even a snack container.

You might think this means its performance as a baby bottle is just so-so, but rest assured you’ll get everything you need with this model.

Because it’s stainless steel, you eliminate the risk of chemicals seeping in as you might experience with plastics. Plus it won’t break when dropped. Even though the stainless steel is lightweight, the bottle also has a tapered design and included silicone sleeve to add grip and make it easier for your baby to hold.

The wide neck more closely resembles breastfeeding and, better yet, makes it compatible with most other nipples from leading brands. The included nipple has a medium flow anti-colic valve design.

We love that this bottle is good for your baby, good for the environment, and good for your pocketbook. If you’re looking to cut down on the number of bottles in your home and get more use out of the baby products you buy, this is a great choice.

  • Stainless steel is safe, eco-friendly, and easy to wash.
  • The bottle evolution system lets you use the product for years instead of months.
  • Compatible with many other leading brand bottle products.
  • Silicone grip and a tapered design make it easier for the baby to hold.
  • You need to buy other accessories to change the bottle’s function.
  • A little on the larger size, so small babies may struggle to hold it themselves.
  • Can’t see the amount in the bottle, measurements are on the inside.

NUK bottles are a classic choice, beloved by moms for years, and it’s easy to see why. These bottles are easy for your baby to hold, but very hard to break.

Glass baby bottles are popular because they can be cleaned and sanitized easily and are completely free of the dangerous chemicals found in many plastics. NUK meets those requirements but takes it one step further.

With only three pieces – the body, the ring and the nipple, each bottle is easy to assemble and disassemble during feedings. Plus, the entire thing can be put in the top rack of your dishwasher for stress-free sterilization.

They can hold 4 ounces of liquid and have a one-piece integrated advance anti-colic system.

  • Easy to clean, but hard to break.
  • BPA-free and dishwasher-safe.
  • Affordable price for parents on a budget.
  • Designed to mimic the breast thus great for transitioning from breastfeeding to bottle-feeding.
  • Integrated valve system in the nipple.
  • The glass doesn’t freeze well and may crack if put in the freezer.

10. NUK Disney Bottle

Best Bottle for Toddlers

Check Price

Keep your toddler happy and entertained with these fun Disney-themed bottles.

The pack includes three Mickey Mouse bottles with orthodontic nipples and an angled top. This will help your baby use the correct tongue and mouth position while drinking. The hourglass nipple shape lets your toddler’s lips close in a way that cuts back on how much air they swallow.

The asymmetrical design will encourage the right jaw positioning to avoid developmental problems which are a risk for children who use bottles past the age of one.

Toddlers will love the fun design and parents will like that this bottle holds 10 ounces of liquid so they won’t have to be refilling it constantly.

The bottles are BPA-free and can be cleaned in the dishwasher. These have an anti-colic air system built into the nipple so your toddler won’t have as many digestive issues.

We like these baby bottles for moms with multiple kids because they work for both babies and toddlers, so you’ll save money by not buying a separate set of bottles for everyone.

  • The nipple design is great for supporting your growing child’s development.
  • Holds up to 10 ounces, perfect for a toddler’s appetite.
  • Fun Disney design will keep your toddler smiling.
  • For best results, you have to line up the anti-colic symbol under your baby’s nose while drinking — that’s hard to control with toddlers.
  • Your toddler may quickly transition to a sippy cup, making the nipple less useful.

11. Sassy Baby Food Nurser

Best Bottle for Cereal

View on Walmart

Help your baby transition from bottles to solid foods with this unique set. You get two bottles in each pack; one with a traditional nipple and the other with a small spoon attached.

Using them in conjunction can help your baby become accustomed to spoon-feeding while also having a nipple with a large enough opening to allow baby cereal to flow through.

This is a great bottle for babies transitioning to solid foods for a few reasons. First, the vacuum disk keeps air out while encouraging the cereal to flow out of the nipple without clogging. Second, you simply press the bottom of the bottle to load some cereal onto the attached spoon.

No matter which lid your growing baby uses, they will have easy access to their food. If they struggle with the spoon, let them use the nipple bottle for a bit. You can slowly add the spoon into their routine as they get used to the food.

You can use it for other thicker foods too, for example, yogurt or applesauce if your baby is a fan. We like this because it means you get a lot of use out of the bottle as your baby grows.

These bottles were designed for babies six months and up. Each one holds approximately four ounces of food and is made of BPA-free plastic, but both the spoon and the nipple are made of silicone.

  • The spoon-bottle can handle the thickness of cereal, unlike other nipple bottles.
  • You can teach your baby the basics of spoon-feeding with this bottle.
  • The spoon is soft like a nipple so it won’t hurt a baby’s teeth or gums.
  • Comes with a hygienic lid.
  • A portable way to carry homemade baby food.
  • For the first few attempts, the plunger on the spoon bottle is hard to push up.
  • These aren’t fun to hand wash.

Do I Need Baby Bottles?

At first glance, it may seem like you only need to be concerned about baby bottles if you don’t plan on breastfeeding.

However, we think all moms should be prepared to use bottles for a number of reasons:

Proper early nutrition is a top priority for every mom. Get the most from your baby bottles by doing a little research to find which type is best for you and your baby.

Types of Baby Bottles

There are 10 main types of baby bottles on the market, each designed with some specific benefit in mind.

  • Plastic Baby Bottles: Plastic is one of the most common baby bottle materials and it is a great option for moms looking for something durable. Overall, plastic baby bottles are inexpensive, widely available, and they are typically BPA-free.
  • Glass Baby Bottles: Glass is one of the safest materials to use and also some of the easiest to clean.
  • Stainless Steel Baby Bottles: Easy to clean and can’t shatter or break.
  • Breastfeeding Bottles: Breastmilk bottles are specifically created to mimic the natural nursing process as closely as possible.
  • Anti-Colic Bottles: Designed to prevent air bubbles from passing through the milk to your baby.
  • Preemie Bottles: Premature babies have some special needs due to their size and development.
  • Exclusive Pumping Bottles: Have millimeter markers to let you know exactly how much you’ve pumped and also act as storage containers.
  • Cereal Baby Bottles: Help your baby become accustomed to spoon-feeding while also having a nipple with a large enough opening to allow baby cereal to flow through.
  • Toddler Bottles: These bottles are designed for older children as their diet gradually evolves.
  • Travel Bottles: Designed specifically for families who are on-the-go.

Can’t decide which one is for you? One of the great things about baby bottles is that you can get a whole selection for a variety of situations.

How to Choose Baby Bottles

Regardless of what bottles you’re thinking of purchasing, you want to make sure they meet a few basic requirements first. If the one you’re looking at meets some or all of these five criteria, you can be pretty confident it’s a quality pick.

BPA Free

BPA stands for bisphenol A, and is an industrial chemical used to make plastic. Research has found some of the chemicals can leach into your food or drinks if they are in containers made out of BPA (4).

If you choose plastic baby bottles, make sure they are BPA-free to prevent any chemicals from getting into your baby’s milk. All BPA-free bottles should say so on the packaging or in the product description.

Easy to Wash

Newborn babies need a lot of sustenance to support their growing bodies. On average, babies need anywhere between 8 to 12 feedings a day. This can lead to a lot of dirty bottles!

So, make sure you look for bottles that are easy to connect and clean. Ideally, they should have a simple design without too many nooks and crannies for milk to dry in and mold. We also love bottles that can be put into the dishwasher.

Venting System

Nothing is as miserable as a baby with gas or colic! The air they swallow gets trapped in their digestive tracts, making them very uncomfortable (5). And we all know that if a baby is uncomfortable, mom will be too.

One of the primary culprits of gas is a baby bottle that aerates milk and fills your baby’s belly with millions of tiny bubbles. That’s why you want one with a venting system to prevent air from getting trapped inside the milk, helping you avoid painful gas and colic.

Measurement Marks

Nursing and feeding your child can feel like a science sometimes, especially if your baby is facing any health issues. Accurately track how much milk you produce and how much milk your baby drinks with a bottle that has measurement marks.

Be careful though! Recent studies have shown a good percentage of baby bottles with measurement marks are inaccurate. Make sure to read the reviews on a product first to see what other moms say about the measurement accuracy.

Pumping Compatible

More than 80 percent of moms begin by breastfeeding (6). However, it can be emotionally and physically demanding, and at some point, you may want a break. It’s convenient to pump directly into a bottle and go out for the evening or even just errands solo (it can feel like a mini-vacation!) Whether this means the bottle can attach directly to the pump or is simply designed to make storing breast milk easier, it’s helpful to make sure the bottle is pumping compatible.

Finding the Perfect Nipple Size

Just as important as the bottle you choose is the nipple size. The nipple size controls the flow of milk out of the bottle. Younger babies generally need slower-flowing nipples while older babies and toddlers need faster-flowing nipples.

There are as many different nipple sizes and types as there are bottles. However, most will fit into three categories: slow, medium, and fast (7). They may also be labeled with numbers, such as stage 0 (newborn), stage 1 (1+ months), stage 2 (3+months), and stage 3 (6+ months).

Each nipple you purchase, whether it comes with a bottle or not, should have an age range and flow speed listed. Your baby doesn’t need to match this exactly, but these are usually helpful guidelines to consider. Slower is typically better for breastfed babies.

When Will My Baby Need a Bottle?

The truth is, there is no right or wrong answer. Every mom and baby is different.

You can breastfeed exclusively for the first six months before introducing solid foods. You can also use formula in a bottle from the day they are born. What you choose is up to your health, what your baby needs, and your personal preferences.

Bottles provide freedom to a new mom, especially after breastfeeding has been established. Being able to leave your milk for your baby with a different caregiver allows you to go back to work, go shopping, or simply have a break.

According to the American Academy of Pediatrics, it’s best to try and have your child weaned from the bottle by the time they turn one. The older your child gets, the harder it will be for them to give up the bottle.

How to Transition to a Bottle

It is common practice for a mom to start off breastfeeding and then slowly transition to a bottle as their child grows. This process can be tricky!

Here are five tips to help you make the transition:

  • Use breast milk inside the bottle. If you’re transitioning to formula starting off with your milk in the bottle helps the baby use the bottle because it’s milk they are used to.
  • Find a bottle with a slow-flow nipple. These are designed to imitate the suckling effect during breastfeeding and prevent nipple confusion.
  • Find a bottle with a wider base. It will feel more like your breast and be easier to latch on to.
  • Choose a bottle made of soft silicone or one that has a silicone cover. Your baby is used to your soft skin and silicone can help replicate that experience.
  • Choose relaxed feedings to try a bottle. If your baby is super fussy and upset, they may be more likely to reject a bottle. Choose a time when they’re more relaxed and happy.

If your baby constantly rejects bottles, try looking at both the bottle itself and what’s inside it. You may have to try a few different bottles to find one your baby likes.

Something to consider for your registry is a baby bottle sample pack.

Do I Need a Baby Bottle Warmer?

Some babies like a warm bottle! To warm the milk, simply place the filled bottle into a container with hot water, which will heat it through evenly.

You can also purchase baby bottle warmers that will keep track of the temperature and take some of the guesswork out of the process. After all, you do not want to give your baby a bottle that’s too hot and scald them.


Never heat a baby bottle up in the microwave. Microwaves heat unevenly, which could leave hot spots that could burn your baby.

How Do I Store Baby Bottles?

Empty baby bottles should be cleaned, dried, assembled, and stored in a protected environment such as a kitchen cabinet (8).

If your bottle is filled with breast milk or formula and hasn’t been used for a feeding, it can be stored in the fridge or freezer. The length of storage time will depend on the type of liquid in the bottle and what the bottle is made of.

If your baby has already had a portion of the bottle, it needs to be used within two hours or disposed of (9).

How Do I Clean Baby Bottles?

So, how can you clean your baby’s bottles properly?

Baby bottles are made from a variety of different materials with different care instructions. Some can be placed in the dishwasher, while others can’t. Most are safe to be put in the top rack of the dishwasher, but always confirm this by reading your bottle’s care instructions first.

Pro Tip

However you clean your baby’s bottle, make sure to completely disassemble it. Some bottles have smaller parts that need to be cleaned with a bottle brush too.

Every once in a while, it’s also a good idea to fully sanitize your baby bottles. You don’t need to do it after every use, but we suggest sterilizing bottles before you use them for the first time and after your baby has been sick.

The easiest way to sanitize them is to boil them in hot water for approximately five minutes. If your bottle can’t be boiled, look into buying one of the best bottle sterilizers.

We suggest only purchasing bottles that can be washed in the dishwasher and easily sanitized.

Baby Bottle FAQs

Can Baby Bottles Cause Ear Infections?

Bottles themselves don’t cause ear infections. However, your baby may get one if they use a bottle while they’re flat on their backs. This is because the milk may enter the eustachian tube, a canal that connects the ear and the throat, increasing your baby’s risk of infection (10).

Prevent ear infections by keeping your baby as upright as possible when they use a bottle, especially if they’re self-feeding.

Are Baby Bottles Allowed on Airplanes?

You can carry bottles of breast milk or formula onto airplanes. Anything containing a liquid may be subject to testing and examination, so make sure you’re using easy-to-open, clear containers.

According to the Transportation Security Administration, bottles filled with more than 100 millimeters (3.4 ounces) of milk can be inside your carry-on and you don’t need to put them in any plastic bag (11). You’re also allowed to have a variety of ice packs to keep the bottles cool, and needn’t actually be traveling with your child at the time.

Can Baby Bottles Be Recycled?

You will need to check what your bottles are made of before you try and recycle them. Today, many types of plastics and glass can be recycled; take a look at the bottle itself, especially on the bottom, for the recycle symbol.

If you can’t find any information from the bottle or the packaging, check out the product listing online or contact the company for more information.

Can Baby Bottles Be Reused or Donated?

Baby bottles are safe and easy to reuse or donate as long as they don’t have any cracks or missing parts. All you have to do is sterilize them thoroughly.

If you don’t have another child you can save the bottles for, consider contacting your local women’s or refugee shelter to see if they are in need of bottles.

Can Baby Bottles Expire?

Most bottles can last indefinitely as long as you take good care of them. However, it’s normal for wear and tear to occur. If you notice any of the following signs on the bottle or the nipple, you may want to get rid of it (12):

  • Cracking, chipping, or breaks.
  • Swelling or other signs of a distorted shape.
  • Thinning.
  • Discoloration.
  • Fast pouring of milk through the nipple.

When Do Babies Hold Their Own Bottles?

Most babies begin to hold their own bottles between 6-10 months. It all comes down to your child’s fine motor skills.

If your arm is getting tired, consider finding a bottle specifically designed to be gripped by your baby.

Top 10 Rating of the best bottles for feeding newborns

Breastfeeding a newborn is a natural procedure for every new mother, but there are times when you need to switch to artificial feeding. For example, when a new mother plans to return to her old place of work in the first year of a baby's life, or simply when she wants to get a short break for rest, during which other family members will look after the child.

So much will depend on choosing the right feeding bottle. To make it easier to find the right accessory for your baby, we offer for your consideration a rating of the top ten feeding bottles from 0, compiled on the basis of the recommendations of medical specialists and mothers who have already used them.

1. "Nuk First Choice"

The top spot was given to the "Nuk First Choise" bottle, for its three main wonderful qualities - versatility, health benefits for the baby and durability. The bottle itself is made of wear-resistant plastic, which is difficult to scratch. In addition, it will not change its color even after a long period of use. The nipple that comes with the kit is made of soft and flexible silicone and does not let air through, so the risk of colic in the baby is minimal. If desired, you can additionally purchase other types of nipples that fit the bottle: there are six different types.

✅ Advantages of the feeding bottle:

  • High-quality and healthy raw material used for the manufacture of nipples and bottles;
  • Ergonomic and comfortable teat shape;
  • Versatility;
  • Clear and indelible gradation on the bottle.

❗ Warning:

  • A number of mums have complained that the lid is not tight and the bottle may leak.

2. “Dr. Brown's

Dr. Brown's anti-colic feeding bottle is the best of the bunch and has a patented ventilation system designed to prevent your baby from swallowing air bubbles. This means that when using this bottle, the child is not afraid of colic. In addition, since air never mixes with milk, your baby is still getting the necessary vitamins: A, C and E-groups. The nipple in appearance resembles a female breast, so the transition to artificial feeding will be painless for the baby.

✅ Feeding bottle benefits:

  • Does not contain harmful materials;
  • Prevents air in the bottle from being swallowed;
  • Reduces the risk of baby colic many times over.

❗Worth noting:

  • Complicated cleaning system: even a special mini-brush is provided for this, however, it is not very convenient to use;
  • Graduation of the scale on the bottle is hardly visible.

Parent Review : These bottles are so nice and easy to use! I couldn't breastfeed, but I still wanted to breastfeed my baby. For this purpose, I used these bottles: my daughter adapted immediately, without any problems.

3. Philips Avent Natural

The most talked about and famous feeding bottle among Russian mothers. The Avent Natural design features an anti-colic valve that returns air back into the bottle. The feeding bottle is quite ergonomic, making it easy to clean and assemble. The appearance and shape of the nipples are suitable for both newborns and older babies. The safety of the goods has been verified by repeated tests of well-known medical organizations, and the products themselves are widely distributed in the CIS and can be bought at almost any pharmacy.

✅ Advantages of feeding bottle:

  • Good wear resistance;
  • Available for purchase;
  • Fully compatible with the company's baby products: sterilizers, drinking cups and other products for babies;
  • Easy to clean and assemble.

❗Worth noting:

  • There have been complaints in the reviews about the operation of the valve to prevent air from entering the food: it can malfunction.

4. Comotomo Natural Feel Baby Bottle

One of the best bottles for the current year: in many tops, it takes first place. Like most other modern feeding devices, this bottle is equipped with a special valve to cut off air from the milk formula, and the shape of the nipple imitates the appearance of the breast, for the baby to get used to the nipple more quickly.

The main advantage of the bottle is the material from which it is made: its soft walls will allow the bottle to shrink, which will help regulate the rate of milk flow. Unfortunately, the bottle itself and its accessories are quite expensive, and there are not much more advantages than cheaper analogues of competitors, so only the fourth place.

✅ Advantages of the feeding bottle:

  • Only materials that are safe for health are used;
  • Good wear resistance;
  • The presence of a valve for bleeding air.

❗ Warning:

  • High price.

5. "Tommee Tippee"

This fluffy bottle is light and comfortable in the hands, making it easier for the baby to feed. It is made of safe polypropylene and equipped with a well-thought-out air bleed system. An additional plus is the shape of the nipple that comes with the kit: it is very convenient for feeding and milk almost never spills.

✅ Advantages of the feeding bottle:

  • Sophisticated air valve system;
  • Easy to clean and easy to assemble;
  • Ergonomic pacifier shape.

❗Worth noting:

  • Some mothers have complained about the nipple designed for feeding newborns: according to them, the milk supply is too fast and in large quantities.

6. Munchkin Latch

The main advantage of the bottle is the teats that come with it. The developers of the product have made a really thoughtful shape, which greatly facilitates the feeding of the child. In addition, it ensures proper grip during feeding, so the outside air, along with the mixture, does not enter the baby's stomach. There is also an air release valve inside the bottle. The shape of the bottle correctly distributes the pressure inside the structure, so that the feeding process is almost 100% similar to breastfeeding.

✅ Advantages of the feeding bottle:

  • Ergonomic and comfortable teat shape;
  • All components are made from raw materials that are safe for the health of the baby;
  • The presence of a valve for bleeding air.

❗ Warning:

  • When the bottle is heated in a water bath, milk flows out of the bottle.

7. "CHICCO Nature Glass" glass bottle

The seventh place was taken by the products of the Italian company. Compared with similar products from competitors, it is more ergonomic and of high quality workmanship. The bottle is made of strong glass, besides, it retains the internal temperature for a long time. Latex was chosen as the material for the pacifier, and its shape facilitates the feeding process as much as possible.

✅ Advantages of the feeding bottle:

  • The bottle is able to keep the temperature of the milk poured into it for a long time;
  • Glass is strong and impact resistant;
  • The teat is ergonomically shaped and made of first-class latex.

❗ Warning:

  • Fairly expensive;
  • Non-standard large bottle volume and weight;
  • Obscure scale gradation.

8. Pigeon

Made by Japanese craftsmen, this feeding bottle has an unusual shape of a nipple and it got into our list precisely because of its specific application. Since a silicone spoon is used instead of the usual type of nipple, it is suitable for those mothers who want to teach their child to eat from a spoon as quickly as possible. Liquid food is delivered to it by simply pressing the bottom of the bottle.

✅ Feeding bottle benefits:

  • Made in Japan;
  • Low price;
  • Rich starter kit;
  • For those who want to teach their child to eat from a spoon.

❗ Warning:

  • Specific use.

9. Playtex Baby Nurser

Another interesting product we have chosen because of the unique way of filling the bottle with formula. It is not poured directly into the bottle, but into special disposable bags. This provides several undeniable advantages. Firstly, after filling the bag with milk, you can bleed excess air from it, and secondly, the bottle itself is very easy to clean. The quality of the materials used for the bottle pacifier is also beyond praise. However, in our market it is quite difficult to get bags for pouring milk, and they also cost a lot of money. Because of these nuances, only ninth place.

✅ Feeding bottle benefits:

  • Innovative feeding bottle filling system;
  • Components are made from materials that are safe for health;
  • Easy to clean.

❗ What to warn about:

  • Rare and expensive consumables.

10. Canpol Babies (glass)

The best budget feeding bottle available today. The gradation of the scale is clearly visible on it, the glass is durable and impact-resistant. The nipple is made of silicone and provides a slow flow of formula. Given the price of the product, this is the best purchase option among inexpensive bottles: cheap and cheerful.

✅ Advantages of the feeding bottle:

  • Low price;
  • Good quality;
  • Impact and tough glass;
  • Only materials that are safe for health are used.

❗ Warning:

  • No air bleed valves.

What else to consider when choosing feeding bottles?

The first is the material from which the bottle and its accessories are made. They must not contain harmful substances. The second is the volume and shape of the bottle. The third factor is the availability and quality of manufacturing of additional accessories and their availability on the market. Our top includes the best models leading in the polls in these three positions.

Top 11 newborn bottles in 2022

It's obvious that a feeding bottle is a must for artificial babies. But it turns out that it can also be useful for breastfed children if the mother needs to leave the house, take expressed milk with her for a walk or give the baby water to drink, for example. Or undergo a course of antibiotic treatment that excludes breastfeeding. The bottle will become an indispensable assistant even if the baby refuses to take his mother's breast.

Even 30 years ago, the choice of dishes for newborns was scarce. Now the shelves of pharmacies and children's stores are literally littered with a variety of bottles and nipples. How can you make a choice that you won't regret? How many bottles to buy? To clarify these issues, as usual, our advice and the constant annual rating of the best products will help. In this case, let's talk about bottles.

    Bottle material

    Bottles are made of glass and plastic. The first material is not afraid of heating, does not react with food and does not emit toxic substances, and has a long service life. The inscriptions and the measuring scale applied to the glassware will not be erased over time. However, the glass breaks. For this reason, it is not recommended to leave the baby alone during bottle feeding. He can drop it and get hurt, given the fact that glassware is harder for a baby to hold than plastic.

    The second option is polypropylene. It is lightweight, unbreakable and safe. Although budget models of bottles may contain harmful impurities. Among other shortcomings - plastic quickly loses its presentation. It scratches, stains if aggressive coloring substances are present in the food, retains the smells of food. Not all plastic utensils can withstand heat, let alone boiling.

    Bottle size and shape

    Curved bottles are more ergonomic. They are comfortable to hold and do not need to be turned upside down to extract milk residues.

    Small, wide 100-150 ml bottles are best for newborns. This amount of food is enough to feed the baby in the first months of life. In addition, compact dishes are easy to hold in your hand, convenient to take with you for a walk and just wash. Especially if the bottle has a wide neck. The only disadvantage of a wide neck is that a nipple block from one bottle model may not fit another. With a classic narrow neck, this problem usually does not arise.

    Babies 4-5 months old will need larger bottles, 250 to 350 ml. In order to save money, large-volume dishes can also be purchased from the birth of the baby, so that they can be used until the child switches to solid food.

    Shape and material of teat production

    Teats are available:

    • classic — round shape;
    • orthodontic - with a beveled tip to form the correct bite in a child;
    • anatomical - follow the shape of the female breast. Suitable for babies who are on a mixed diet. And also for those who have temporarily stopped breastfeeding, but later plan to return to it.

    As for the type of material, there are only two - silicone and latex. The first is wear-resistant, moderately hard, keeps its shape well, and is more hygienic. If the mother plans to return to breastfeeding, then it is better to stop the choice on a tight silicone nipple. The second is soft and elastic, quickly becomes unusable. Latex nipples are easier to suck on, so weak and premature babies are more suitable for them.

    2022 Newborn Bottle Ranking

    1. Best Latex Baby Bottle: Chicco Well-Being

    Compare Prices

    Why we like it: Suitable for picky little, weak babies or teething babies.

    Editor's estimate:

    This 150ml bottle features a latex teat. It is made from natural raw materials (milk of rubber trees). It is softer and more elastic, stretches better. But it also wears out faster than a silicone pacifier. If your child flatly refuses to suck on a silicone pacifier, offer him a latex one.


    Grooved rings on the end for even more elasticity of the teat. It is pleasant to scratch itchy gums about it during teething. The nipple stretches during feeding, imitating the mother's nipple. The wide base ensures that the pacifier is properly gripped by the baby. The flow rate is medium. The manufacturer positions this model as a bottle for newborns. But still, the size of the hole in the nipple is more suitable for older babies - starting from 2 months.

    Other features

    The bottle has an anti-colic valve. True, only one, not two, as in the previous model. However, it does its job very well. Thanks to the ergonomic shape, the bottle is easy to hold even for children's hands. The presence of a wide neck simplifies the process of filling the mixture and washing dishes. To make the nipple less dirty, you can close it with a transparent cap. The bottle is available in two colors: blue and pink.

    • teat made of natural material;
    • physiological shape of the pacifier;
    • anti-colic system;
    • wide neck;
    • is available in two colors.
    • latex teat wears out quickly;
    • Fluid flow too strong for baby.

    2. Best newborn bottle with smart pacifier: Medela Calma

    Compare prices

    Why we like it: Suitable for combining breastfeeding with bottle feeding from the first days of life.

    Editor's estimate:

    Once again, the teat that comes with the 150 ml bottle is in the spotlight. But now, thanks to the pacifier, breastfeeding is being established, maintained and supported. During sucking, a vacuum is created, which excludes the appearance of air bubbles and their swallowing by the child. Moreover, for the entire period of feeding, the manufacturer suggests using one nipple size. Everything is the same as with natural feeding.


    The shape and length of the silicone pacifier are thought out in such a way that the baby, as in the case of mother's breasts, has difficulty obtaining milk for himself and regulates its flow himself. However, many complain about the excessively large hole in the nipple and, as a result, the strong pressure of the mixture. Because of him, the baby begins to choke. To fix the problem, after filling the bottle with milk, you need to slightly press on its body and release excess air. When the liquid from the nipple stops dripping on its own, the bottle can be given to the baby.

    Other features

    The body of the wide-mouth bottle is made of safe plastic, resistant to abrasion and high temperatures. The dishes can serve more than one child, while it will look like new. This model, like the Chicco Well-Being, is equipped with an anti-colic valve.

    • special teat shape;
    • can be used from the first days of life;
    • good quality plastic;
    • anti-colic system;
    • wide neck.
    • Strong milk flow if the bottle is not bled first.

    3. Best Slanted Newborn Bottle: Chicco Natural Feeling

    Compare Prices

    Why We Like It: Suitable for mixed feeding.

    Editor's estimate:

    250 ml plastic bottle suitable for feeding babies from 2 months of age. Her feature is in an unusual inclined nipple. The anatomical shape of the pacifier repeats the mother's chest, and the slope provides a natural grip and the correct position of the neck in the newborn. Such a nipple is always filled with milk, and air does not accumulate in it.


    Ultra-soft silicone pacifier imitates natural breasts not only due to its unusual shape, but also thanks to a special velvety coating on the tip. Flexors at the base of the nipple increase its flexibility and elasticity. At the same time, the pacifier does not stick together during feeding due to the ribbed section, which gives it rigidity. But the nipple can sink inside the bottle. This happens in three cases: when the pacifier is incorrectly installed on the bottle, if the milk outlet is clogged, or if the pacifier holder is screwed too tightly to the base of the bottle.

    Other features

    Double anti-colic valve reduces the risk of digestive problems in the baby. The wide mouth of the bottle is suitable for use in combination with a Chicco breast pump. In addition, thanks to the wide mouth, the dishes are easy to wash.

    Well, where without a fly in the ointment in a barrel of honey? It would be dishonest to keep silent about a significant drawback found among the bottles of this model. We are talking about marriage, when the nipple block does not fit snugly against the neck, because milk leaks at the junction. Alas, this cannot be fixed, only the purchase of new dishes will help.

    • anatomically inclined nipple;
    • velvety finish on the tip of the pacifier;
    • double anti-colic valve;
    • wide neck;
    • can be used with a Chicco breast pump.
    • the nipple is sucked into the bottle during feeding;
    • Milk may leak at the attachment point of the bottle and teat assembly.

    4. Best Feeding Spoon Bottle: Pigeon

    Compare prices

    Why we liked it: For mothers who do not want to teach their child to nipples.

    Editor's estimate:

    Once again, our favorite company Pigeon is ready to surprise. This time the highlight of the program was a 120 ml bottle designed for feeding babies from 3 months. Instead of a nipple, there is a measuring spoon for liquid and semi-liquid food. It can be fruit or vegetable puree, cereal, mixture, milk or even water.

    Someone will say that you can feed a child with an ordinary spoon, and all these devices are nothing more than a whim. We do not agree. Complementary foods from such a bottle are very convenient - the food does not spill, the child remains clean. In addition, you can take the bottle with you anywhere, drink your baby on the road or while standing in line for groceries.


    Not available. But there is a silicone spoon. Inside its handle there is a chute through which food from the bottle is dosed into the spoon. The mechanism is started by lightly pressing the piston installed in the bottom of the bottle. In this case, the liquid is poured out only when pressing on the bottle and never by itself.

    Other features

    The body of the bottle is made of soft translucent plastic. You can track the amount of food eaten or liquids drunk. The bottle comes with a cleaning brush. For transportation and storage of dishes, a spoon can be placed inside the bottle, and closed with a protective cap on top.

    This model has only one drawback - due to the small volume of the bottle and the size of the spoon, it makes sense to use the kit until the baby is 8–9 months old. In the future, the need for such dishes disappears.

    • silicone spoon instead of teat;
    • food pours out only when pressure is applied to the bottle;
    • easy to store and transport;
    • brush included.
    • small bottle and spoon size.

    5. Best anti-colic newborn bottle: Philips AVENT Anti-colic with AirFree valve SCF810/14

    Compare prices

    Why we love it: is a real find for babies with gas.

    Editor's estimate:

    The highlight of this model is a special spoon-shaped anti-colic valve. Thanks to him, the nipple always remains filled with formula or milk, no matter at what angle the bottle is at the time of feeding. Accordingly, the child does not swallow air. Of course, the valve will not relieve colic by 100%. However, it will reduce the number of regurgitations, and also partially eliminate problems with gas formation.


    Solid silicone nipple won't kink inside the bottle or stick together when feeding. Its design is designed in such a way that the baby makes the same efforts and makes the same sucking movements as with natural feeding. This means that after bottle-feeding, the baby can easily return to suckling at the mother's breast. The size of the opening in the nipple allows the baby to slow down the rate of sucking and not swallow excess air. Suitable for babies from 0 months.

    Other features

    The small plastic bottle of only 125 ml is convenient to take with you on a walk. Both she and the valve are easy to clean, including in the dishwasher. Plastic does not deform when a milk bottle is heated in a microwave oven. Measured divisions are not erased over time. The anti-colic spoon can be attached to any Philips AVENT Anti-colic bottle.

    • unique anti-colic system;
    • anatomic teat;
    • is dishwasher safe;
    • plastic is microwave resistant;
    • Anti-colic valve fits all Philips AVENT Anti-colic bottles.
    • anti-colic system does not completely solve the problem of colic, but only partially eliminates the symptoms.

    6. Best glass baby bottle: Pigeon Peristaltic Plus (premium glass)

    Compare prices

    Why we liked it: A bottle made of harmless material that does not release any compounds and does not chemically react with milk.

    Editor's estimate:

    The 160 ml baby bottle from 0 months is made of borosilicate glass, which is particularly durable and resistant to temperature changes. It will not burst, even if you pour boiling water into it for sterilization, for example. Glass does not become cloudy during operation. BPA free.

    Milk in a glass bottle heats up in minutes, but cools down just as quickly. When going for a walk, keep this feature in mind. In addition, it will be harder for the baby to hold a glass bottle than a plastic one when he is a little older and can eat without the help of adults.


    Pigeon's own soft silicone physiological teat. Designed to support breastfeeding. Thanks to the matte textured surface, it is easier for the baby to grasp the pacifier correctly. And its anatomical upper part will encourage the baby to make wave-like movements with the tongue while eating, as when sucking on mother's breast.

    Other features

    There is a ventilation system at the base of the nipple that helps the milk flow from the bottle evenly. Reduces the risk of swallowing air during feeding and the occurrence of colic.

    Thanks to the wide mouth, there will be no problems when washing and sterilizing dishes. It is also convenient to pour the mixture into a wide neck. More than necessary, you will not dilute it, since a bright and accurate measuring scale is applied to the bottle body.

    • premium glass;
    • anti-colic system;
    • physiological teat;
    • wide neck;
    • precise measuring scale.
    • milk in the glass instantly heats up, but also cools down quickly;
    • a glass bottle is harder for a child to hold than a plastic one.

    7. Best feeding bottle with cup: Dr. Brown's 2 in 1 Options Narrow Neck

    Compare prices

    Why we liked it: A good opportunity to gradually accustom your baby to a new form of eating.

    Editor's estimate:

    Bottle by Dr. Brown's 250 ml grows with your child. From a classic bottle with a nipple, with a slight movement of the hand, it turns into a drinker. This saves you money and space in your kitchen cabinet. The dishes are designed for children from 6 months.


    The shape of the silicone nipple is as close as possible to the female breast, so the transition from natural to artificial feeding and vice versa will be painless for the baby. Thanks to the patented ventilation system, air never enters the nipple and mixes with milk. The baby will receive from nutrition all the vitamins of groups A, C and E that he needs, but problems with gas, colic and frequent regurgitation will bypass the baby.

    Spout made of hard silicone. Before using it, you must remove the ventilation system from the bottle.

    Other features

    Unlike the Medela Calma, this model has a narrow neck. Washing the bottle and the anti-colic device that comes with it is cumbersome, even though a brush is attached to the set with dishes - small and inconvenient. But the protective cap, on the contrary, is large and tightly closed. Now you can take the bottle with you on the road without fear of staining or damaging the nipple or cup spout.

    The tableware is available in two colors - blue and pink. A measuring scale is applied to the plastic body, although its gradation is hardly distinguishable against the background of a bright pattern decorating the bottle.

    • 2 in 1 classic bottle and cup;
    • patented ventilation system;
    • physiological teat;
    • protective cap and brush included.
    • inconvenient to wash;
    • faded measuring scale.

    8. Best bottle for a newborn with feeding difficulties: Medela SpecialNeeds

    Compare prices

    Why we liked it: Helps improve feeding in babies with neurological and maxillofacial disorders.

    Editor's estimate:

    This 150ml bottle model bears some resemblance to the Pigeon. It is also designed specifically for premature babies with a minimal sucking reflex, as well as for babies with Down syndrome. Thanks to the extended base of the nipple, the bottle can also be used to feed babies with cleft lip. Suitable for newborns from the first days of life.


    Absolutely smooth silicone nipple, without relief, so soft that milk can be squeezed out with just a slight pressure on it with lips or gums. The flow force is variable and depends on the angle of the bottle relative to the baby's nose. The pacifier nozzle will fit any bottle with a narrow neck.

    Other features

    The body of the bottle is made of plastic. There is a measuring scale - colorless, therefore hardly distinguishable. Like most models, this one also has an anti-colic valve. Dishes can be sterilized.

    • suitable for children with physical and neurological disabilities;
    • easy to get milk;
    • flow adjustable;
    • anti-colic system;
    • can be sterilized.
    • poorly visible measuring scale.

    9. Best dry mix container bottle: Twistshake Pastel

    Compare prices

    Why we love it: The kit has everything you need to store, feed and properly dilute formula for the smallest gourmets.

    Editor's estimate:

    This is not just a bottle, but a full-fledged "ammunition" to combat the hunger of a newborn glutton. And it consists of a bottle of 180 ml, a 100 ml container for dry mix with a lid, a mesh for breaking lumps, a nipple and a protective cap.


    The pacifier in this model is made of silicone. Convex notches covering it are needed in order to give the nipple sufficient rigidity and avoid sticking of the tip during sucking. Suitable for feeding babies from birth with formula, liquid cereals or milk.

    Other features

    All other parts of the kit are made of soft polypropylene, which, by the way, is easy to scratch with careless handling. It also has a traditional anti-colic valve to help with gas. The extra wide mouth makes it easy to fill the formula and clean the bottle. The special ergonomic shape of the dishes is designed to comfortably hold the bottle in your hands, as well as to keep the milk warm for a longer time. The mesh breaks the lumps of the mixture, prevents it from foaming and sticking to the walls inside the nipple. When transporting, all components of the kit can be folded into a bottle.

    The manufacturer produces a set of first dishes for a newborn in 5 colors: blue, lilac, green, coral and pink.

    • includes everything you need to dilute and store the mixture;
    • ergonomically shaped to retain heat;
    • anti-colic system;
    • wide neck;
    • variety of colors.
    • The plastic case is easily scratched.

    10. Best bottle for premature babies: Pigeon

    Compare prices

    Why we like it: Suitable for babies with a weak sucking reflex.

    Editor's estimate:

    The 100 ml bottle is intended for supplementary feeding of premature, debilitated babies and infants from the first days of life. At the same time, after feeding from a bottle, they can easily switch to natural feeding.

    The pacifier was clinically tested at the Scientific Center for Children's Health of the Russian Academy of Medical Sciences in 2013.


    The small teat is made of very soft and elastic silicone, which makes it easy to suck on. The rough surface at the base, like the Pigeon "Peristaltic Plus" (premium glass), is needed for a better grip on the pacifier by the child. The pressure of the jet is weak so that the baby does not choke on the mixture and does not gasp for air. Uniform flow of milk into the nipple provides a special ventilation system. Unfortunately, there is no such nipple for sale separately from the bottle.

    Other features

    The bottle is made of durable glass. A scale is drawn on the body. But this model is not equipped with a lid for the pacifier.

    • pacifier for babies with reduced sucking reflex;
    • anatomical teat;
    • ventilation system;
    • measuring scale.
    • you can't buy a teat separately from the bottle;
    • bottle cap not included.

    11. Best feeding bottle with orthodontic nipple: Baby Me

    Compare prices

    Why we liked it: The bottle will help not only feed, but also form a correct bite in the baby.

    Editor's estimate:

    The 150 ml bottle has two features at once. The first is the beveled and slightly flattened shape of the nipple, which contributes to the formation of the correct bite in the crumbs. To keep the pacifier in the mouth, the child has to actively work the jaws back and forth, as a result of which the maxillofacial muscles develop. The second has handles on the sides to make it even more convenient for the baby to hold the bottle while feeding.


    Silicone nipple with a medium flow is more suitable for babies from 3-4 months, although the manufacturer's label on the bottle indicates a limit of 0+.

    Other features

    The bottle is made of high quality harmless plastic. Just like the Pigeon Peristaltic Plus (premium glass), it is BPA-free. But unlike the glass model, this bottle is lighter and will not break if used carelessly at home or on the road.

    There is a measuring scale on the body. However, after prolonged use of the dishes, they may be partially erased. Colorful colors with cheerful patterns are also likely to lose their brightness over time.

    But a more significant disadvantage of the model is the lack of an anti-colic system. Although due to the special shape of the orthodontic nipple, the pacifier fits snugly to the lips. Because of this, the swallowing of air by the baby during feeding is significantly reduced.

    • orthodontic teat;
    • light and practical;
    • side handles;
    • measuring scale;
    • assorted colors with designs.
    • no anti-colic system;
    • The measuring scale wears off when the bottle is used for a long time.

    How to choose the best bottle for your newborn

    What else should you pay attention to when choosing a bottle?

    Teat size and fluid flow rate

    Teat size is selected according to the child's age. So, zero or first is suitable for a baby from the first days of life. Equally important is the strength of the fluid flow:

    1. Strong flow is provided by one large or 2-4 small holes in the nipple. These pacifiers are suitable for children from 6 to 12 months. In some models, they can be used from 3 months, but this is rather an exception.
    2. Medium flow is provided by 2-3 small holes in the nipple. This pace of feeding is convenient for babies from 3-6 months.
    3. Low flow due to 1, maximum 2 holes in the nipple. The liquid flows slowly, almost without pressure. Suitable for babies from 0 to 3 months.
    4. Variable flow is provided not by round holes, but by elongated slots that regulate the rate at which the liquid flows out of the bottle. There are risks on the nipple, when one of them is combined with the child's nose, the slot opens more or less, and the flow force changes with it. The pressure of the liquid is also affected by the angle at which the baby presses the nipple during feeding.

    Anticolic system

    This is a special valve at the base of the nipple or a vertical mechanism that is placed directly in the bottle. In both cases, the action of the anti-colic system is aimed at eliminating air bubbles that enter the nipple during feeding. It significantly reduces bloating and regurgitation after meals. However, you need to understand that swallowing air is only one of the many reasons that can provoke bouts of colic in a newborn.

    Measuring scale

    It is necessary to dilute the right amount of formula, to control how much milk the child drank in one feeding. But be careful! Not all baby bottles have accurate scales. The error can be up to 10%.

    Everything you need to know about bottle feeding your newborn

    Using any bottle, even the best, will not do any good, and sometimes even harm the baby, if used incorrectly. Therefore, we will tell you how and in what position to feed a newborn from a bottle, how to care for baby dishes and how much to buy them.

    How many bottles does a newborn need

    If the baby is breastfed, you can buy 1-2 bottles to supplement the baby with water and to express breast milk if the mother needs to go away on business. After six months, the bottles are useful for liquid cereals, kefir and juices. Artificialists, on the other hand, will need much more utensils - at least 4 voluminous bottles for the main food, so that parents have time to sterilize the utensils and dilute the mixture on time, and 2 more smaller ones - for liquid.

    How to sterilize baby bottles

    Baby bottles must be washed and sterilized before being used for their intended purpose. The most modern way is a steam sterilizer. The time spent is about 10 minutes. It can be replaced by a simple immersion of children's dishes in boiling water for 2-3 minutes. However, not all bottles will withstand the boiling water test.

    Another way to sterilize is to place bottles without nipples in a pot of water and close with a tight lid. Then put the container in the microwave for 5-7 minutes.

    Antiseptic tablets are also great for killing bacteria on children's dishes. The drug is dissolved in a container with cold water. Bottles without nipples are lowered there, closed with a lid and left to be processed for 30 minutes.

    How to bottle feed a newborn

    1. Baby food should not be cold or hot. Put milk from a bottle on your wrist and check its temperature.
    2. Make sure your baby has a good grip on the nipple while feeding. Its oblong part should be in his mouth, and the wide part should be clasped by his lips.
    3. The vertical position of the formula bottle is unacceptable - the baby will choke. It is held at a 45⁰ angle and made sure that the nipple spout is constantly filled with milk.
    4. Check the condition of the teat from time to time. Make sure that it does not break or stick together. A deformed pacifier must be replaced with a new one.

    Take short breaks every 5 to 10 minutes to let your baby burp. Otherwise, the child will create a false sense of satiety.

    How to hold a newborn while bottle feeding

    The most physiological and comfortable position for a baby to feed is in the mother's arms.
