What experts liked
I think the Comotomo’s wide, soft mound and pliable nipple makes it easier for babies to transition from breast to bottle, since it more closely mimics a natural breast than most other bottles on the market.
- The Bump
This is one of the more realistic shapes I’ve seen on a baby bottle, and because it is naturally shaped, it does what the bottle is intended to do, which is help your baby find a way to latch on properly.

There is a lot to like about this baby bottle. It is one of the easiest to use in the bunch, with only three parts to assemble for feeding, the Comotomo keeps it simple.
- Baby Gear Lab

It’s a lot easier for babies to go from breastfeeding to feeding from the bottle and back with little to no fuss with the change.
- The Baby Swag

We love that the bottle is made of BPA-free medical-grade silicone, but we found it stained easily and absorbed food smells.
- Today's Parent

During feeding, we noticed that the entire wide base of the nipple elongated and retracted very smoothly, much like a natural breast. So that made for a really nice rhythmic suckling motion, which is rare to see in even the best baby bottles.
- Mommy Hood 101
Parents love the soft, fuzzy feel of these bottle, saying it helps transition from breast to bottle and back.
- Baby Bargains
Their super-wide necks make them easy to rinse and lather up without missing any nooks and crannies, and parents say they’re more leakproof than many other brands.

The Comotomo baby bottle is not only easy to clean because of the wide neck opening but also because of the silicone used. This bottle will be easy to hold with a skin like squeezable silicone body.
- Little One Mag
Firstly the flow is rather slow to gradually develop the baby’s suckling and also to minimize any choking or spit ups.
- Toodrie

Another interesting feature of the bottle is its flexibility. It is so soft that it can be gripped, squeezed, clutched, and pressed just like mama’s breast, to keep your baby focused on the food instead of the bottle.

The nipple and the mold of the bottle closely mimic a mother’s breast. The softness of the silicon gives it a very natural feel, making it one of the best makes in the market. It also helps prevent cases where babies reject the bottle because of the stark difference from a mom’s breast.

Breastfeeding moms love the Comotomo bottle because of its rounded shape and natural nipple.
- Wee Spring
Comotomo bottles are suitable for moms that solely rely on a bottle but also due to their breast like shape and special mechanism of feeding they are successfully used by breastfeeding moms.
- Baby Gear Hub
When the baby drinks, there are air vents on the bottle sides to allow air flow as the liquid in the bottle goes down.
- Check Pregnancy

These bottles are leak free and are heat-resistant. You can boil the bottles, put them in the dishwasher and even the microwave.
- Kids Play And Create
What experts didn't like
I did have an issue with one of the tops on the bottle being screwed on so tightly that I couldn’t get it off (I blame my husband for that one!) and we had to throw it away.
- The Bump
Won’t fit in many bottle warmers, which is something you should be aware of.
- Mom Loves Best

We had no problems with leakage when the bottle was held upside down, but the squishable nature of the body can cause accidental leakage if squeezed.
- Baby Gear Lab
April 8, 2019 | Full review
The bottles, which typically come in a pack of one or two, are a little pricey, even if they do offer a lot of positive aspects for parents and caregivers.
- The Baby Swag

One of our testers did report some leaking while feeding, but she said the milk that dribbled out was roughly the same as what she experienced with breastfeeding.
- Today's Parent

Just a few, mostly related to the translucent bottle, which moms report can make it hard to see the number labels on the side, but that's being a little picky.
- Mommy Hood 101
The bottle shape, however, makes them a bit tippy and squirtable (especially the 5 oz.), so be careful!
- Baby Bargains
Comotomo bottles are a bit on the pricier side
- Verywell Family

Limited options as it’s only available in two colors.
- Little One Mag
Soft Body Problems. Although they have a great feel, the soft silicone bodies can make it difficult to seat the lids properly. Also, squeezing the bottle will cause milk to shoot out of the vents.
- Best Mom Products

Bottle is unstable and easily tips over.
- Toodrie

Due to the soft nature of the silicon used to make the bottle, it is hard to tighten the collar over the nipple. This further creates chances of spillage.
- Best Bottles For Babies

Some parents note that the measurement markings can be hard to read.
- Wee Spring
Due to rounded shape Comotomo bottle is more prone to tip over than standard bottles.
- Baby Gear Hub
After a long time of use, the nipple tends to turn translucent due to frequent washing.

An Overview On Baby Bottles

Whether you plan on pumping breast milk so your spouse can feed your little one or you prefer to use formula, you’ll need a good set of baby bottles. With several different types of bottles on the market, it’s a good idea to do a little research before you choose one.

 

Kristin Forte/Simplemost Media

Start by examining what material the bottle is made from. If the bottle is created from plastic, you’ll want to look to see that it is BPA, PVC, lead and phthalate-free. Other bottles, like Evenflo Classic Glass Twist Bottles, are made from glass, which is recyclable and environmentally friendly. That means you won’t have to worry about any toxic chemicals seeping into the baby’s formula.

Next, check the bottle design. The best design will reduce the amount of air your baby ingests, preventing instances of gas, colic and spit-up. The Playtex Baby Ventaire Anti Colic Baby Bottle does just that. Not only does the bottle have a patented anti-colic bottom vent, but it’s also angular to lessen the chances of your baby developing an ear infection.

You’ll also want to look at how the formula is designed to flow through the bottle. Babies can get frustrated if the flow is too slow or choke if the flow is too fast. Dr. Brown’s Original Wide-Neck Bottle has an Internal Vent System that works in sync with its silicone nipple to flow at the baby’s pace.

If this is your first baby, or you’re shopping for a baby shower gift, you’ll want to consider a bottle set that comes with a few extras. The Philips Avent Natural Newborn Baby Bottle Starter Set, for example, not only comes with six bottles in two different sizes, but also a bottle brush for cleaning the bottles, a formula dispenser for packing formula to-go and a pacifier to comfort baby.

DYWM Fun Fact

Originally, breastfeeding was the only method for feeding a baby. If a new mother wasn’t making enough milk, a wet nurse was used. During the 18th and 19th century, however, there weren’t enough wet nurses to fill the demand. As a result, artificial feeding from a bottle using milk from cows, goats and sheep was used.

Kristin Forte/Simplemost Media

Some of the first baby bottles were made from such materials as tin, porcelain and pewter. In ancient times, cow horns and terracotta jugs were used. By the 20th century, bottles had become commonplace and were being made from glass. Today’s bottles are made from plastic and feature either a rubber or silicone nipple.

The Baby Bottle Buying Guide

  • It is important to sterilize and clean your baby bottles properly before feedings. Sterilizing the bottles with boiling water should be done before the first use and again every so often if you have well water. After the first sterilization, you can take the bottles apart and either wash them in the dishwasher or soak them in a sink full of hot soapy water. Always rinse away any soap residue before using.
Kristin Forte/Simplemost Media
  • The American Academy of Pediatrics recommends discontinuing the use of baby bottles by the time your child reaches 18 months of age. By then, you’ll want to switch to a sippy cup. This is important because the longer a toddler uses a bottle, the higher their chance of tooth decay.
  • Once you’ve retired your baby’s bottles, you can repurpose them. They can be used for everything from measuring liquids to holding snacks for a car ride to storing paintbrushes in between masterpieces.
  • Certain excess baby bottles can be tossed in your recycling bin. Turn the bottles over and look at the number on the bottom. If you see a five or seven, you can recycle them. You can also donate the bottles to a children’s charity or an animal shelter.
Kristin Forte/Simplemost Media
  • Since most bottles are sold in sets, it’s important to consider what you get with each set when comparing prices. Even though Philips Avent Natural Newborn Baby Bottle Starter Set may be priced higher, it includes a total of six bottles, a bottle brush, a formula dispenser and a pacifier.
