Top 10 baby bottles for 2021

Finding the right bottle for your baby can be a little bit of trial and error. They come in so many different shapes, sizes, materials, and purposes. For instance, there are plastic bottles, glass bottles, bottles designed specifically for babies with colic, and bottles with teats created to mimic mumma’s nipples for the breastfeeding bubs. So, which one is the perfect bottle for your unique baby?

Here is what to keep in mind when choosing a bottle

  • Are you exclusively expressing? You might like a range of bottles to use throughout the day in different sizes to use as your baby grows.
  • Are you mixed-feeding? You may only need a few small bottles if you’re topping your baby up after breastfeeds.
  • Does your baby have colic? There are bottles designed to reduce colic and easy baby’s discomfort.
  • Other factors to consider: Does your baby have latching difficulties? If you plan to use the microwave, is the bottle microwave-safe? Do you need a temperature indicator? Is it dishwasher-safe? Suitable for freezing?
