Review of Nuby ~ Dr Brown ~Green Baby & Yoomi Bottles.

I was asked to Review and test. Four branded bottles, to see which ones i liked the best. Here are my results.

Dr Brown’s:
''A complete feeding system for happier babies. Created by a physician, Dr Brown's Natural Flow® is the only baby bottle with a patented internal vent system that actually helps promote good health in babies. By eliminating the vacuum and air bubbles, it helps to reduce feeding problems like colic, burping and gas. And the positive pressure created by our system is as close to breastfeeding as your baby can get. Quite simply, it looks and works unlike any other bottle''
Overall favourite with me & baby.  I went and brought some for my daughter to use now.
Using these bottles my daughters wind transformation was instant! While not completely getting rid of wind (some wind is very normal) I was able to feed the baby more in one go and winding took minutes, not 10's of minutes. The bottles were Easy to clean, plus you get a little handy brush to clean the filter part.
My only problem with these was you can't mix the formula properly in the bottles, the manual say's to stir the powder in so not to clog up the air system. You can't mix formula adequately by stirring, you have to shake! I got round this by using my other bottles for mixing then pouring into the Dr Brown's. Which ive now found out you can buy a separte jub for mixing forluma in.

Green Baby
* safe: bisphenol-A Free glass does not leach toxins. Cap is a BA free polypropolane.

* hygienic: glass does not retain smells or tastes from previous feeds

* practical: made of heat resistant, toughened glass so can be washed in a dishwasher, boiled or steam sterilized.

*sustainable: glass is a recyclable, renewable resource.
I was quite shocked when I opened the parcel as ive never saw a glass baby bottle, my initial reaction was the bottle was very big and heavy. My daughter took ages to adjust to the bottle, she just kept spitting it back out, the bottle does have a funny shaped teat which I don’t think she liked.
The fantastic thing about these is you know your child isn’t drinking any terrible chemicals and when you are done with them they can either be packed away for the next one or recycled.
The bottle was Fantastic to clean and did feel cleaner than a plastic bottle and you know that they aren’t going to dull or get scratched like a plastic one. Very envoirment friendly as you could tuck away for other children.

Yoomi

Rechargeable warmer x 100, no plugs, no batteries
Tested to rigorous safety standards
Makes combining breast and bottle easier
Use bottle alone or with the warmer
BPA free
Bottles, teats and warmers are interchangeable across the range
Charge it and it stays that way until you use it
Breast-like anti-colic teat for easy latch-on

I was very excited when I opened the parcel the packing was very fancy its defiantly something that would catch my eye if I was out shopping the bottles and teat was quite big and my daughter seemed to gulp and seem out of breath when feeding on the bottle, which made her really windy. The shape and design was really fab and after researching i found that you can buy a warmer to go with it that heats the bottle up in 6o seconds perfect for the night feeds or if your out and about.
The bottle was easy to clean because of the wide neck & the teat is very realistic, but these both gave me problems as I use a steam steriliser and they didn’t fit in there as they was too big.

Nuby Natural Touch
''Nothing is better for your newborn than a Natural Touch™. The SoftFlex™ Natural Nurser is designed to make breastfeeding and bottle feeding work better together. It features the new Nûby™ Breast Size Nipple which closely mimics the natural shape, feel, and function of a mother’s breast helping to ease the transition from breastfeeding to bottle feeding. Superior anti-colic valves in the base of the nipple help prevent colic, and soft nubs on the surface massage baby’s gums. Additionally, this bottle is made from a high grade of Poly Propelene material which is 100% Bisphenol A FREE and is fully interchangeable with the SoftFlex™ Silicone system''
My daughter seemed to like the teat on this bottle, it was pretty easy to feed her. I liked the silicone bottles as it was easy to squeeze a bit of milk in to her mouth to encourage her to carry on feeding. The bottles was easy to assemble, they needed a good scrub before popping into the steriliser thou.
They didn’t seem to help with her wind though and needed a lot of winding after drinking the milk.
This is a really good option for mums that are combining bottle with breastfeeding or who are introducing their baby to a bottle for the first time, As the teat is breast like shaped.
