Comotomo Bottles. They’re a firm fave with us here at KIDLY HQ, and our customers can’t get enough of them either. We sell them in the bucket load, in all sizes and colours. However, as they're a relatively unknown brand, we thought we’d share why we - and our parent testers - think they’re great.
1. It’s described as ‘breastfeeding in a bottle’.
Comotomo has designed its bottles to closely mimic natural breastfeeding. It says they’re designed with a wide mound and a naturally soft shaped teat. This makes it ideal for babies who have trouble transitioning from nursing to bottle-feeding and can help with ‘nipple confusion’ and ‘bottle rejection’. Co-feeding? This bottle great for getting someone else in on the action without confusing baby too much between breast and bottle. Winning.
'This is the best bottle I’ve used and I've tried so many. The teat moves a lot more than other bottles we have tried, which makes it much more like breast feeding.'
2. It’s soft, soft, soft
Babies use their hands from when they’ve been chilling in the womb, bringing them close while they swallow amniotic fluid. And any breastfeeding mama will tell you all about those active baby hands during feeding time. Comotomo’s bottle base is made of a soft, silicone material, which mimics your skin. This can help babies feel soothed, calm and eventually give a better grip when they’re ready to hold their own bottle.
'The bottle is by the far the easiest bottle I have used to clean. The wider top means you can just use a normal sponge, no need for any bottle brushes.'
4. They can combat colic
Colic isn’t nice for anyone. Especially babies. Comotomo has tried to ease this by incorporating two anti-colic vents on the bottle teat. This means they drink milk and don't gulp air.
