  • Theses bottles where awesome for my oldest. She loved the feel because the milk fills around the plastic part and feels warm and realistic. Not for moms who's babies don't suck hard. Nov 06, 2019

    My husband swears by this bottle! When I’m gone and he has to give the baby a bottle...it wasn’t rejected. The nipple mimics exactly how the baby gets milk from the breast. Great buy Sep 04, 2019

  • Baby didn't like this bottle. Got frustrated with the flow May 19, 2019

  • My daughter had these and I was excited to try them. However I feel like the nipple was way to big for her and having so many parts to clean stunk! Feb 15, 2019

  • Our LC recommended this when our baby was learning how to latch on the breast. We found this bottle hard to use and clean compared to other wide-mouth nipple bottles that also mimic breastfeeding. Nov 18, 2018

  • Nipple can be difficult for baby to get milk out of. If you take the middle nipple insert out to try to make it easier to suck out milk, the nipple collapses very easily because it is so soft. Sep 17, 2018

  • This bottle saved my daughters breastfeeding journey. I went back to school and she wouldn’t take ANY bottles. Finally, after trying 4 other brands, we tried this one and she took to it like a champ! Jul 07, 2018

  • my baby boy would GAG to this bottle, he hated it, and apparently its mostly similar to " moms nipple" it isnt Jun 13, 2018

  • I have not had any problems with these bottles. My baby doesn’t seem to get as much air. The double nipple doesn’t allow him to drink too much in one gulp. Jun 12, 2018

  • My LC recommended this , but my baby never got the hang of it . She choked and sputtered and wasted a lot of milk Jun 01, 2018

  • I loved the idea behind these, and they worked mostly. Downside is the pressure build up Jan 09, 2018

    I do strongly believe that these bottles helped my first kid get advantage from formula AND stay interested in breastfeeding! So for my second one I’ve repurchased. Love them! Dec 06, 2017

  • A great, inexpensive bottle perfect to avoid nipple confusion. Great for a mom who mostly breastfeeds, but uses a bottle once and a while. It does require some assembly, but worth it. Oct 22, 2017

  • My baby likes it Oct 18, 2017

  • Received one as a shower gift. I didn’t like how the milk collected in the nipple. Seemed too complicated for a bottle. Sep 27, 2017

  • When I was breastfeeding my baby would only take this bottle but it's kinda difficult with the two nipples Sep 22, 2017

  • My breast fed baby would only take to these bottles! They let the baby control the flow of milk! Best bottle I have found, after we tried many many bottles! I highly recommend! Apr 16, 2017

  • Like it enough. Flow for 0-3 months is still faster than from breast, but the design still requires baby to work for output. Easy to clean with wide neck, which is great. Nipple is a little short. Apr 05, 2017

  • Top part would fill up and cause it to leak more than baby was actually working for Mar 10, 2017

  • These bottles were hard to set up and they always caused a mess if I didn't get the parts aligned perfectly. Dec 12, 2016

  • Our baby did not like these bottles and they were frustrating. Oct 12, 2016

    I don't like how soft the nipple is, it collapses. I also don't like that milk gets trapped in the inner layer of the nipple. Found myself constantly pressing on the sides to drain the milk back in. Sep 01, 2016

  • Leaky, a bunch of parts, baby hated it. Not a winner for us. Jul 07, 2016

  • To much work and doesn't really seem worth it... May 19, 2016

  • I love how it mimics the breast. My children had no problem going from breast to bottle (when daddy wanted to feed) back to breast. Looking to use them again. Apr 20, 2016

  • These bottles work great for us, they don't let too much milk out and haven't had a problem with my baby having colic. Apr 26, 2015

  • Baby loves this bottle so much more than other brands we tried, and has no problem switching back to the breast. I don't love how the milk pools between the two nipples, but it is a small inconvenien Nov 14, 2014

  • Nipple was too big for my daughters mouth. She kept choking on her milk as she tried to drink it. Nov 07, 2014

  • My daughter loved this bottle! Sep 30, 2014

    After trying practically every bottle on the market, this is the only one my EBF baby would take! Aug 11, 2014

  • Nipples are the worst! Baby hated them. I've heard this a lot from other nursing mothers. Jul 28, 2014

  • This bottle was a life saver with my breastfed babies no nipple confusion. It also did wondesr for their gassy bellies. It triumphed where other bottles failed. Apr 24, 2014

  • There was a learning curve to use this bottle properly, but once we figured it out we liked it. The only downside was there was always a small amount of fluid left that they couldn't get out. Mar 20, 2014

  • Little one loves em! Great for dream-feeding baby also without worry of the flow being too fast for him Mar 10, 2014

  • I REALLY wanted to like these. But rather than sucking, baby would just chew on the end- which was the exact problem we were trying to avoid. Ended up returning them. Feb 28, 2014

    My son would cry when I tried to feed him with these bottles. I thought they would be great but the nipples were too hard for him and he didn't like how slowly the milk comes out. Feb 19, 2014

  • worked. glad I got it. but not my favorite. Jan 28, 2014

  • We used these at daycare when my daughter was very small. They are supposed to be good for helping breastfed babies take a bottle cause it controls the amount of milk they get as they sip. We loved them. Nov 01, 2013
