As the mother of two children, I think the most important thing about choosing a baby bottle is its quality, especially the durability of the nipple.
Our baby likes to bite the pacifier when drinking milk. Initially we bought an ordinary baby bottle, but the pacifier was bitten in less than 2 weeks.
Later we changed a more expensive brand (Comotomo), it took 2 months, the pacifier is still intact.
Although the price is more expensive, but the price is higher, and it is more reliable to use.
Therefore, the products we recommend today are more famous brands on the market, although the price is more expensive, but the quality is reliable.
What types of baby bottles are there?
Bottles are typically made out of one of three materials: glass, plastic or silicone.
- Glass bottles used to be the norm in the decades before plastic and have recently returned to popularity. While it may sound like a bit of a head-scratcher to give your baby something made of glass, the glass used for baby bottles has some unique features that sets it apart from everyday glass.
- Plastic bottles are made out of polypropylene, a hard type of plastic. Plastic bottles are the most common type of baby bottle on the market and the most affordable.
- Silicone bottles are the newest types of bottles on the market. They’re made from silicone, a soft, flexible material that’s free from chemicals like BPA, PVC and Phthalate.
5 Best Baby Bottles of 2021:
|Comotomo Natural Feel Baby Bottles||2.6 x 2.6 x 5 in||Silicone|
|Philips Avent Anti Colic Bottles Clear||2.36 x 4.72 x 5.12 in||Polypropylene|

|Nanobebe Breastmilk Baby Bottles||2.95 x 4.09 x 4.21 in||Silicone|
|NUK Simply Natural Bottle||10.5 x 3 x 7.63 in||Silicone|
I think this is the most cost-effective baby bottle, suitable for babies 0~3 years old.
It is made of high quality silicone, which, like all the bottles in the list, does not contain phthalates, lead, BPA or latex.
Unlike other baby bottles, its bottle is soft and very close to breastfeeding.
In addition, the bottle has a wide mouth, which means it is very convenient to clean.
The two babies in our family use this bottle, which is reliable in quality, anti-scalding and anti-fall. Overall, this bottle is a good choice.
- Easy to clean
- Excellent safety, functionality and reliability
- It’s a bit big for a little baby
Philips AVENT bottles have been around for a long time, but they are an innovative company and all products are constantly improving with the times.
The AVENT bottle series is no exception. It is one of the best all-round baby bottles in 2019, available in both plastic and glass versions.
We found that its nipple is soft and comfortable to touch, and the dual valve exhaust system prevents swallowing of air, gas and cramps.
But its exhaust system is not as good as Comotomo. For natural glass versions, to ensure better grip and safety, it is best to use a silicone sleeve.
In addition, its bottle mouth is smaller than Comotomo, so cleaning is not so convenient, you need to buy a bottle brush.
- Anti colic design
- Easy to hold design
- BPA free material
- Clear markings for accurate measurements
- Cleaning without Comotomo is convenient
If you want to reduce the cries and screams, look for a bottle with anti-colic function to prevent air from entering the baby’s milk and causing serious damage.
Dr Brown’s has done a great job in this area, they can reduce colic, spit, and snoring.
They also retain the essential vitamins in breast milk, which are exacerbated by exposure to air in traditional bottles.
How does it work? The internal ventilation system eliminates vacuum pressure and reduces oxidation caused by air bubbles. Air bypasses the milk through the internal ventilation system, providing a comfortable feeding experience for the baby.
In addition, its exhaust system can be used with silicone nipples, which have a slower flow rate for better control of feeding.
- Prevents colic
- BPA free material
- Travel cap makes traveling easy
- Suitable for most breast pumps
- Measuring marks can be difficult to see
Breastfed babies are used to nipples, so you need to look for a model with the same softness and shape.
The Nanobebe Breastmilk looks like a real breast bottle. This solves a problem for mothers who need to switch between breastfeeding and bottle feeding.
Your baby is more likely to accept it. If your baby doesn’t like milk at first, you can also mix milk and breast milk.
In addition, it is available in a variety of sizes, heating and cooling speeds, suitable for babies 0 to 2 years old.
- Heating, cooling fast
- Easy to clean
- Baby is more acceptable

The NUK natural nipple has multiple nipple holes, specifically up to nine holes. what is the reason? Does my mother’s nipple have more than one hole?
This makes NUK’s natural bottles and nipples one of the most innovative designs that mimic the flow during breastfeeding.
It consists of an anti-colic air system that prevents colic and gas. The nipple is designed to be flexible and avoid nipple confusion.
Due to the available nipple flow and size, it is suitable for babies from 0 to 3 years old.

Baby Bottles Buying Guide
Feeding time can be a valuable contact opportunity for you and your child. No matter what stage your baby is in, you need to choose a suitable bottle for him.
If you don’t have experience in this area yet, you can read the information below carefully.
Finding the perfect nipple size
As important as the selected bottle is the nipple size. The size of the nipple controls the flow of milk from the bottle.
Younger babies usually require slower nipples, while older babies and young children need faster nipples.
The size and type of the nipple are as much as the bottle. However, most will be divided into three categories: slow, medium and fast.
They can also be numbered, such as stage 0 (newborn), stage 1 (1+ months), stage 2 (3+ months), and stage 3 (6+ months).
When do you need baby bottles?
You can use the bottle from the first day. If you are breastfeeding, you can choose to wait for the bottle to be introduced until the baby gets care.
After 4 to 5 months of breastfeeding, you will need to slowly try feeding with a bottle.
How to transition to a bottle?
This can be a problem for some babies, they don’t like to drink milk with a bottle, or do not like the taste of milk. How to do?
In my own experience and some mom’s feedback, there are several solutions:
- Bottle: If this is the case, it is recommended that you choose a bottle with a shape, feel and breast close to it, such as nanobebe Breastmilk.
- Milk powder: Some babies don’t like milk powder. You can try goat milk powder or mix breast milk with milk powder.
- Time: If the breastfeeding time is too long, it is difficult for the child to accept the bottle. We recommend to over-feed the bottle before 6 months.
