Baby bottles that come close to the real thing. Or so we can hope.

When my daughter was a baby, she was a hardcore bottle protester. I went through every single bottle brand I could get my hands on at the local Target, hoping that one would magically work on the kid. Luckily, with Baby #3, I think I’ve found a bottle that I am hoping will avoid some of that hassle right from the get-go.

This line of baby bottles from Comotomo might do the trick for any baby suffering from what experts call “nipple confusion.” (anyone else hate that term and want it banned forever? Not just us? Okay). The inventive thing about these bottles is that they’re made from medical-grade silicone–the whole bottle!–making everything from the nipple to the body totally soft and squeezy like…well, you.

Hopefully, the soft material will appeal to babies who are learning to transition from breast to bottle.

The soft body can be cleaned easily–no more trying to get every nook and cranny with those bristly bottle cleaners–and that alone is worth the purchase in my book. It’s also nice to know that this BPA-free silicone material can be popped into the dishwasher, microwave and sterilizer.

The wide-mouth and dual vent system supposedly helps for babies who have colic (gah), preventing them from swallowing too much air as similar bottles also aim to do.

If Comotomo had been around when my daughter was a newborn, who knows if I would’ve had to go through the misery of bottle protests. Now that these bottles are here? I’m crossing fingers for smooth sailing ahead. Jeana

    Hi Jeana!
    I know this article is from last year but just wanted to let you and everyone else know how awesome these bottles truly are!!! I strictly breast fed my son from the day he was born. He loved these bottles from the get go, and my husband and I do as well. Definately would suggest them to everyone!

    I’m 36 weeks pregnant with my 3rd boy and I got these bottles and can’t wait to use them! The only downfall is they don’t carry a como tomo sterilizer or bottle warmer…and I don’t think it fits really well in the ones on the market?

    My son won’t take them or any other bottle I try. I’m going back to work in 3 weeks and the anxiety is mounting. :\
