We’ve had this bottle for a little while now. I’m pleased to say that the little guy seems to like it. But then again, I’m not sure if he ever met a food delivery device that he didn’t like!

This bottle has some good qualities. It seems to help reduce air intake for the most part. The insert collapses as the baby drinks, which is kinda cool. But there can still be a bit of air in the bottom, so you have to take away the bottle once the liquid is gone. Baby will either suck the rest of the air out, or get frustrated at sucking against the collapsed insert.

The bottle has a lot of parts, though. There’s the insert, the screw on bottom, the outer bottle, the nipple, the nipple ring, the cover, and a little round insert that is used when you’re mixing formula (it’s supposed to help mix the formula better). Oh, and a little sharp tool to help you make the nipple hole bigger if needed.

That’s a lot of stuff to keep track of.

It does seem to feed well, and our baby had no real trouble with it. But it’s still too big for him to hold on his own. He’s 7 months now and while he can hold bottles himself now, he only hangs on to the smaller ones. He still doesn’t like to hold the bigger ones.

I have a trip coming up next week and in spite of its multiple parts, I might take it with me to use for water, because I don’t have any smaller, BPA-free bottles right now. (I know.)

I think this is a bottle that you may just want to try for yourself to see if the baby likes it. But if lots of parts intimidate you, or you’re afraid of losing them, then it may not be right for you. My house is a black hole sometimes, yet we still actually have all the parts. So far.
