When I first had my little one I attempted breastfeeding but when things didn’t go to plan I moved onto bottle feeding. I started with Tommee Tippee closer to nature but my little boy really didn’t like them and would get terrible wind.
I discovered the MAM bottle range on Amazon after looking for Dr Brown bottles. I thought I would give them a try after seeing such good reviews. When I received my starter kit I was surprised to see so many parts just for one bottle. Most bottles just split into three/four piece the teat, cap and bottle. MAM bottles completely come apart. The unique airflow system means there is a white silicone ring in the bottle of the bottle. Due to this design when you cold water sterilise the bottle (yes I know you can self-sterilise in the microwave but I prefer cold water sterilising with Milton tablets as I can do multiple items in one go and leave them in the formula for 24 hours) you find that you have quite a bit of excess water to shake off when you assemble the bottle. When I first poured water in I was concerned it would come out of the holes in the bottom so I tried with cold water first. Nothing leaked out at the silicone ring prevents fluid leaking out but only air.
After the first use I saw a huge difference when my boy. He no longer gulped air and milk. I also didn’t need to worry about making sure the hole in the teat was in the right place. Also in comparison to the tommee tippee bottles these are really nice to hold. The base and teat holders can be used on any of the anti-colic bottles.
Another great thing I love about these bottles is the patterns on the bottles and that you can get these in green, pink, blue or a cream colour.

Anti Colic for Baby’s Comfort
The patented vented base of the MAM anti-colic bottle ensures that babies can drink calmly and relaxed. The ventilation holes in the base regulate pressure balance and airflow and as the bottle ventilates via the bottom, milk flows undisturbed without air bubbles, feeding without interruption.
