This deal is expired. Here are some options that might interest you:

These are the ones we actually settled with in the end with our little one. Nice and easy to clean. The bottom section unscrews, you then remove the rubber seal for cleaning. Most bottles are simple anyway, they may seem a faff around compared to some out there as there are more parts to them, but they're really not.

There's no need for messing with the teat like on some others to get the valve lined up correctly. They're also self sterilising, so you can do that in the microwave (we use a sterilisation bucket for ours though)

Just add to basket and use code BABYTHANKS


Pink - £22.95
Blue - 23.97

These are the best, we tried Madella and Tommie but found these to be really really good, especially for anti-colic and how well the baby gets on with their feed. Drunk way more with these than the other brands, Much less air getting in to the baby.

We paid way more for these back then (2016). Pleased to report child is now perfectly healthy. Stay away from the “Tommie tippee” and rubbish makes and pounce for these. Voting unequivocally HOT.


Advice like this can really put the fear into parents. There's nothing with the Tommee Tippee bottles and more importantly teats - millions of people use them and have no problems. We used them for our first child and had no problems.

But it depends on the baby - some will have issues with Tommee Tippee teats, but some will also have issues with these. If it's not working for you and baby is getting colic, then try another brand.

Good price for this particular brand so hot from me.

Good spot! Mam bottles are the best and the only ones that worked for our DD. Heat!
Strange that one colour is more expensive
Tried Tommee Tippee ones with our son and he really struggled to get on with them, we found a MAM one that we were given as a gift pack from a 4D scan and the improvement was remarkable. Can't recommend them enough.
Agree they are great, sometimes get poor reviews but it's nearly always due to user error rather than the bottle. Great for on the go if occasionally you get the premixed carton of formula. Debenhams have a self service microwave
Best bottle brand hands down!

Not exactly true - advice like this helps people to steer to their choice by other customers' feedback.

There is a clear difference in the old standard tommee tippee teats vs. their newer versions (not including their new designed bottles which I will get into later). I initially went for Tommee Tippee because they have the most sales/customer reviews compared to the other brands in the industry. The TT teats are too flexible, understandably to reflect the flexibility of a nipple, but the base of the teat also is too flexible. If your baby likes to suck hard and chew/pull (the latter which nearly all babies will do at some point) then the teat will pop off/lose suction/leak. Comparing this to MAM teats - they are also flexible at the top of the teat (nipple like) but the base is very firm so as to hold structure when in the bottle which is why leaks are uncommon compared to TT bottles.

Next the bottle.. the standard TT bottles which doesn't feature any of their new gimmick designs may be fine, but their new star valve is a joke - Never a time when it didn't leak. Unfortunately, I purchased 15 "advanced" star valve TT bottles all of which did not suit my DS because they constantly leaked from the edges. Also, if you warmed milk in the bottle and turned upside down, it would then pour out like a hose pipe.

All the above is IMHO with abundant similar reviews from other customers whom have experienced the same issues. I would hope that people that read reviews such as mine help to influence their decision of purchase.

With that being said, Tommee Tippee do make other great products such as their Perfect Prep Day & Night machine which is a miracle device. It's just their bottles that I am wholly unhappy with.
Completely agree. These MAMs are the best. But only downside is you can not feel the temperature very well from the bottle cause the bottle wall thick. Tommie Tippee is horrible brand, horrible customer service and poor quality product.

If you use TT bottle to measure water, it gives you different reading when it’s hot and cold. Marvellous isn’t it.
How does Colic happen? I remember when my brother was a baby, he did not use a bottle (or I just have no memory of it). But he'd still get Colic, the only thing that helped was using a hairdryer on his belly
These bottles are great. Being able to sterilise them without any other sterilising device is extremely handy.

most of the time it's just air being swallowed because the carer is a novice who is incompetant careless or just an idiot.
We have these bottles and they are they best. Baby has had no problems with colic and feeds well with them. We bought the yellow bottles as we didnt know the gender of our LO. If you want better deals go on to the MAM website, Or Emmas diary usually have some discount codes and offers for all colours

How does that make it not true? What I said is that for the vast majority of people they are absolutely fine (reviews are still overwhelmingly positive, plus people tend to review when they're not happy), but if you're one of the minority that they don't work for then just try another brand.

The points you mentioned are very useful for people to know. But my point was that to go round with hyperbolic language about TT being rubbish and MAM being amazing is not a good idea - for first-time parents particularly, who may have already bought all their baby gear, it can really worry them unnecessarily.

Unfortunately on the internet people go way over the top with their opinions - I remember being overly worried before my first, but then afterwards everything I had read turned out to be no issue at all.

I gave these to a friend once and she loved them. Just bought these for another expectant mother. Thanks for finding OP
Ordered thank you x
Does anyone know if these Mam bottles can be used with the Tommee Tippee Day & Night Perfect Prep please?
We have these bottles for our second child, after using Tomee Tippee with our first, simply because when we tried our second with the Tommee Tippee vs Mam, he preferred the shape of the teat.

A word of warning on the Mam bottles though - if you do make up a hot formula with boiling water, you cannot stand these in a bowl of cold water to cool them down. The big rubber anti-colic valve thing on the bottom is great, but it will let water into the bottle if you immerse it. If you're not using instant formula or something like a perfect prep machine where the temperature is less important, and you really want an anti-colic bottle, the Tommee Tippee ones might be better for you, as they channel the air intake back up by the teat end, and retain a completely sealed bottle section for immersion in water. Mam's solution to this is to make sure you leave the lid off when immersing in cold water to allow for pressure differences, but it just didn't feel right going to all that effort to sterilise everything to then leave it all exposed like that, and just hope that it's worked. Now, I'll only make it from powder when I know I've got time to let it cool on the counter top. If I need one in a pinch, I keep instant on standby so I don't have to stand there like a lemon running it under a cold tap.

I found this out the hard way when I made up a 5oz bottle, and came back 10 minutes later to find a watery 6.5oz in the bottle.

Although generally speaking I agree with your points, I would say that the importance of baby feeding cannot (obviously) be underestimated.

These MAM bottles are on the higher end financially wise of the bottle feeding baby solution. If that gives parents a (higher chance) of not having problems with a feed, then it’s worth spending the money out on. Please seek independent advice such as a midwife, neo-nato clinic, or the general public.)

But i stand by my point on the tommee tippee. You just have to try some of their other products (breast pump, temperature gauge) to get a true feeling that their products are cheap for a reason.

Just talk to the neonatal and midwives. If my post can help one parent spend a little more for a (more likely than not) better chance at successful bottle feeding then I’ve done my job.

How silly and unsupportive is your comment? To express milk from the breast is rarely the problem for mothers - what is the common problem is to achieve latching which can be down to various issues such as tongue ties etc. Not to also mention the fatigue and pain that some mothers can experience from breast feeding.

There are numerous reasons why mothers will formula feed over breastfeeding. Speaking from personal experience.

Midwives, obs and neonatal will encourage breastfeeding as there is a national target to discharge mothers that breastfeed... again speaking from personal experience as an ex-manager for a Maternity NHS Hospital.

Yes, but not everyone can breast feed even if they desperately want to. My daughter was born at 22+5 and my milk never came, despite expressing every 2.5 hours for 4 weeks. She's in NICU now being fed donor breast milk but eventually she'll have to have formula as I have no other choice.

Spot on.

My partner breastfed for the first couple of weeks (while baby was in neonatal) using a £1000 top of the range electric brestfeeding machine. We would spend literally hours getting 1-2ml because little one was 6 weeks early Mum couldn’t produce the milk. It certainly wasn’t through a lack of trying.

Using direct to boob method, little one wouldn’t latch on and Mum would be crying out in pain numerous times being in complete agony. This went on for weeks.

We also tried the tommee tippee breast pump which was literally the biggest waste of time and money spent. By this time Mum would stop producing any milk at all so in the end (after talking to various professionals - we were recommended these bottles - although officially they are not allowed to make recommendations on products.)

@Flappybunnyman if your little one was born in the UK in an NHS Hospital, you may have used the Medela Symphony pump (pic attached). Is this the one? It's a fantastic and reliable piece of kit!

Similar to your story, my wife struggled for a while to produce milk but through her determination of wanting to breast feed she finally started producing milk, having fought through the pain and struggle to produce! A few mls turned to 100+mls on each express per breast. Funnily enough, our little monkey did not want to latch and so we ended up expressing for 6 weeks using the Medela Swing Flex with occassional formula feeds. Now she is purely formula fed.

@squiff Congratulations on the birth of your daughter. NICU can be a scary place but it is one of the most strongest and protected (from Govt cuts) department in the NHS. Your daughter is in the best place right now having access to round the clock care. In regard to your expressing, have you stopped completely? Did you express at the witching hour 3am when milk production is at its highest? Did you use any baby minky cloths to exchange smells?
Wishing you all the best.

I had three kids, all breast fed, and I returned to work at the end of my maternity leave. None of them ever drank from a bottle. But regardless, I agree it’s about the bottle, but the comment that neonatal nurses and midwives would recommend this bottle is rubbish. You’re talking about new born babies in hospital and the best thing you can do for a newborn is to breastfeed. Some mums come across difficulties breastfeeding but there are support networks all over the country.
