I nearly changed my mind about stopping when I had to queue to get into the car park and find a space. Glad I did though because I got men’s sheepskin slippers for £5.99, mattress and pillow protectors, carpet cleaner, wild rose face mask and cream, a 4 tier bath caddy, £3.99 tumble dryer balls, the small disinfectant spray for 19p, and bath brick. Wish I had gone yesterday when it started! I did ask the cashier if it was on at Holdenhurst road but he thought it was a trial at just that store. They also had cases of Prosecco for £29.96 but I only had a hand basket ;) Lots of baby items still left.
Ok you've caught my attention. What does it change into?
Its cold because you can buy everything in that picture except the bottle maker for £53 on amazon in black or white.
We ordered these from Amazon and saved an extra 15% off using the Baby Wishlist. We got the Day and Night prep machine for £72 and the anti-colic feeding set for £48 totalling £120 😁
Not sure why this is cold, I’m pretty sure all these items individually would set you back a lot more than this. Though it’s not the latest night/day model of the prep machine

Tommee Tippee UK: Reliable Baby Products and Plenty of Choice
In 1965 a small plastics company in California designed a new cup for children, at the request of a local doctor. He wasn't impressed with the finished article but the brothers who owned the company persevered, they weighted the base so it was less likely to spill and added a picture of their own dog, Tommee. Soon the Tommee Tippee cup was spotted by a UK business man, who brought it back home, along with other infant feeding products. He set up a factory near Newcastle upon Tyne and began mass producing colourful, practical and safe baby items. Today Tommee Tippee is the UK’s premier baby feeding brand and also sells to a global market.
The Tommee Tippee Collection
Tommee Tippee divides their products into seven distinct areas on their website at www.tommeetippee.co.uk, catering for different aspects of baby and child care. Here’s a closer look at what’s on offer:
Bottle feeding- When babies are bottle fed, it’s important to find a teat and bottle that they feel comfortable with. Tommee Tippee has created a range, aimed at making the experience feel as natural as possible for the baby. Teats range from slow to medium, to fast flow - each catering for different babies’ needs. Bottles include the Closer to Nature range, which replicates the feel of breast feeding, anti-colic bottles, and Ultra Feeding Bottles which combine the benefits of both. The Perfect Prep range cuts down on the amount of work which goes into bottle feeding. A Perfect Prep machine delivers ready to drink bottles of formula in two minutes, which leaves you free to hold the baby before a feed. You will also need to buy replacement filters for the unit, as it filters water prior to mixing it with formula milk. Parents worry about keeping bottles completely clean and sterilising in boiling takes up lots of time. A far simpler method is to use a steriliser, just wash and rinse the bottles, teats, soothers and lids beforehand, then place them inside and switch on. Tommee Tippee has electric sterilisers that sit on a counter top, microwave versions, and even smaller travel sterilisers for keeping your baby safe when you’re on the move. Bottle warmers are another handy time-saving device from the brand; they can be used to heat milk or food and have a thermostat, making them far safer than a microwave.
Breastfeeding - Mums who breast feed exclusively, can find Tommee Tippee products to make the process more comfortable and convenient. They can buy milk storage bags, bottles, and a steriliser, to gain more freedom over when and where their baby is fed. Tommee Tippee has both manual breast pumps and electric breast pumps. These items are ideal if you would like to have other people feed the baby when you can’t be there. There are also accessories like non-slip nipple pads to stop leaks, and nipple shields to help you recover from sore or cracked nipples. You can shop for individual items or buy a Tommee Tippee Express and Go Electric Breast Pump Starter Set which has everything you’ll need.
Change time - As all parents know, babies make a lot of mess for such small people. One way of managing the waste and smells they produce is purchasing a Sangenic Tec Nappy Disposal System. This is a bin fitted with Tommee Tippee Sangenic Hygiene Plus refill cassettes. When you put a nappy inside the twist and lock system seals in odours and packs away the nappy. Each cassette accepts 28 nappies before it needs to be changed. If you live in a flat, or house with a long drive, and are keen to cut down on frequent trips to the bin with soiled nappies, this could be the ideal solution. However, many people will be happy to tie nappies in a scented nappy sack, and put them in the bin individually.
Monitoring - Tommee Tippee has a selection of high-tech monitors for keeping an eye on a baby when you are not in the same room. One unit is left in a safe place near the baby whilst the other stays with the parent, or person caring for the baby. The Digital Sound Monitor is cordless and relays even very low volume noises to the parent unit. There is also a Digital Video and Movement Monitor which has a 3-inch screen for parents to see and hear what the baby is doing. Finally, there is a Digital Sound and Movement Monitor, this comes with a pad which sits under the baby. The pad picks up movement and lets off an alarm if the baby is still for more than twenty seconds. Once the baby is old enough to shuffle off the mat, the unit can be used as a standalone monitor.
Caring - The Tommee Tippee Caring products include a digital ear thermometer, so you can take very accurate readings, and a Health Care Kit for babies. This includes a comb, a brush, scissors, a digital thermometer, nail clippers, emery boards, a toothbrush, and a nasal aspirator, all packed away in a carry case. It is ideal if you travel frequently and want all the essentials for your baby’s personal care ready to go at a moment’s notice.
Soothing - In their Soothing range Tommee Tippee has teethers and soothers. Soothers, can calm restless infants and help them fall asleep faster. Tommee Tippee has added air holes to their soothers to protect the delicate skin around a babies mouth, and have some which glow in the dark, so they are easier to find in the middle of the night. At some point between birth and one year, babies' teeth begin to emerge. This can cause discomfort, drooling, and the urge to bite down on anything that comes to hand. Teethers give babies something to chew that’s clean and safe. Tommee Tippee Easy Reach Teethers are BPA free and have a channel for applying teething gel. You can also find bibs to mop up any dribbles in the soothing section.
Weaning - Moving babies from milk to solid foods can be a messy experience, but Tommee Tippee has cups, tableware and cutlery especially designed for small hands. The materials used are robust, so you won’t need to worry if they get flung on the floor, and cups come with sturdy lids which will not pop off if dropped. This means you can let a baby explore new tastes and textures without fear of something getting broken. This range is very brightly coloured, to keep their interest, and comes with a matching collection of bibs, to minimise the impact on their clothing.
Choosing a Tommee Tippee Bottle
Having the right bottle for your baby is crucial, here’s a list of the different options at Tommee Tippee:
Closer to Nature - The Closer to Nature bottle is shaped like a breast, so babies feel more comfortable latching on to feed for the first ever time, or as part of a transition from breast feeding. There is a valve to help regulate the flow of milk and they are BPA free.
Advanced Comfort - This bottle has been designed to reduce the amount of air baby takes in during a feed; as this intake is thought to be a cause of colic. The patented Tommee Tippee system uses air vents and a wand to cut back on the amount of air which passes to a baby. These are certainly worth a try if your little one is showing signs of colic, as some parents have found they can help to reduce the symptoms. However, they are more expensive than the standard versions and the specialist parts can make them difficult to clean properly.
Ultra Feeding Bottle - Combining the strengths of Closer to Nature and Advanced Comfort bottles, the Ultra teats are made from super-soft silicone, to mimic the feel of breastfeeding. This is a great choice for babies who find it hard to latch on to other bottles, or who suffer from wind after a feed. They are one of the more expensive bottles from Tommee Tippee but many people find they are readily accepted by newborns, so are worth the money.
Essentials Standard Neck Bottle - In two pretty colours, the Tommee Tippee standard bottles look cheerful and are BPA free. A cheaper option, these tall cylindrical bottles are perfect if you want a few spares, or if you’d like to try out bottle feeds without investing too much money. They are easy to clean, but some people find the narrow neck makes it tricky to put in powdered formula.
Starter Sets - There are a number of Tommee Tippee baby bottle starter sets, these range from a pack that includes a cleaning brush, bottles and teats, to a comprehensive system that comes with a steriliser and bottle warmers. They are great value for money compared to buying each item individually, but it’s best to check your baby is happy with the bottle and teats included before you buy in bulk.
Tommee Tippee Ultra: Bottle Feeding in Perfection
Pros and Cons of a Tommee Tippiee Nappy Disposal Unit
Nappy disposal units are considered a luxury rather than an essential by most parents. If you are happy to wrap nappies and just put them in the bin, then you probably won’t need one. On the other hand, if you are concerned about nappy odours in your home or the outside bin is hard to reach, a special unit could come in handy. Here are a few factors to weigh up if you are undecided:
Great for the first few months when nappy changes can happen frequently.
Ideal if you can’t get to the wheelie bin with each nappy change.
The unit is sealed so odours are greatly reduced.
Used nappies are in your home for extended periods of time.
They cost more than a normal bin.
Refill cassettes are an added expense.

Save Money with the Tommee Tippee Offers at hotukdeals
Buying all the essentials for a new baby can be costly, but it’s possible to save money on Tommee Tippee products by browsing the brand’s page at hotukdeals. We publish new offers regularly, so shoppers can find every great deal in one convenient place.
I had the older version of this and it was great, you put the food in and it came out cooked and blended. This version you have to transfer to blender attachment after steaming. May as well save some money, get a £20 steamer that you can still use after little one is 1 and the £24 (ish) tommee tippee chopper that you can still use after weaning to make purees to chuck into their porridge or salsa etc for you.
It’s not a waste of money though as I found it helpful, it saved me time and was more convenient. I’d rather not ‘live through it’ and anything that affords me extra downtime in the baby days was worth it, no point being a martyr and listening to a hungry baby scream every night for £60.
I have twins & we found it brilliant!! I really don’t understand how you don’t find it sooo much easier & quicker?
Midwives advised against these due to bacteria, 2 kids later and both are big healthy kids with very very few sick days, heat from me as this is a life saver, now if something could reduce the time taken to wash all those bottles (lol)
Just ordered one of these from Asda (same price, coming Thursday). Having a 5 day old we've found, like others have too, that boiling the kettle, making up a bottle and then trying to cool it down at daft o'clock in the morning just isn't practical. Our neighbours will thank us for this 😁
Thank you!!! BF is wonderful and natural, but that doesn't mean it's easy. As my lovely midwife said to me when we struggled from the start, it's natural like walking, not like breathing. You have to learn how to do it. While I managed 5 months in the end, my MH is 1000% better since I stopped. The pressure is unreal on new mothers and for some BF is simply not possible. We've also combo fed all along and as above honestly don't know how to make formula without one. Something to do with waiting 60 years for kettles to boil and cool?? I'd reccomend any mum to be, buy one of these in advance (we ended up on a 2am supermarket run for pre made formula in desperation!). 60 is a good deal for new but we've had 2 2nd hand ones at a tenner each, just give em a good clean.
60 quid is absolute steal for this. My other half was ill and had to go to hospital so had no option but to switch to formula and my man boobs were no good. Worth its weight in gold at 3am and your little is crying for a feed. Boiling a kettle and waiting for the temperature to cool is just not practical.
True about the black mould stories! Our machine was sat in the loft for a couple of years between children (once we found out what caused the first child we put a stop to that, but must have slipped up at some point) and we were worried about mould in the pipes. They're actually not that hard to take apart (if you wanted to check the [translucent rubber] pipes) and they have a decent cleaning function programmed in.
Are people using them properly? You only use them for the really bad ones, and the twisting function means the smell is locked away...have one upstairs to save going down stairs in the night with a sh1tty nappy bag!
Agree with other comments, it’s a clever concept but the cost of the refills really is madness for what they are, especially with how quickly you can go through them.
I too got this for free from Amazon's Baby Wishlist. It's a great bin. The smell doesn't really escape. After the cartridge finished, I started using normal cheap bin liners in it.
Got this as a gift. It is a handy thing to have but refill prices are a bit crazy. Thankfully I got seven with it with one lasting about six days. I'll be using bin bags once they're finished. The bin & six refills are on sale at £19.89 with 15% S&S LINK . Six refills alone is £25 with 15% S&S (shock)
Buy a smaller pack and then refill them yourself with one of the refilling packs in Amazon. We're still using the initial 6 pack after 2.5 years. Having a baby is already damaging the planet enough, don't make it worse by buying even more landfill material.
The bins are great but like all baby products they have parents by the gonads, thanks for informing me it’s possible to buy just the bags as refills!
200m of liners for the cartridges - £21. Used these myself and can recommend. https://www.amazon.co.uk/gp/aw/d/B07PV1863W/ref=ppx_yo_mob_b_inactive_ship_o0_img?ie=UTF8&psc=1
Used a normal bin and in the summer just b4 bin day I had maggots coming out of the bin (horror)
