Comotomo bottles have been awarded the product design award for their innovative design. Their design has brought about the first big change in bottle design for many years.
These bottles are made from a safe silicone material that is 100% free from BPA, PVC, and Phthalate. They are heat resistant which means that they can safely be used in boiling water and even the dishwasher. This silicone is meant to mimic human skin and as it is soft and squidgy your baby can use their hands to explore it. Exactly the same way as breastfed babies do.
Comotomo bottles have been designed for babies to easily latch on. The nipple is shaped and has a wide mound. Both of these features should make it easier for your baby to move from breast to bottle and back again.

Tommee Tippee is a well known brand in the baby market and has been producing bottles for many years. They have some fantastic features that truly benefit your baby. These features can also make a parents life much easier.
They have an award winning nipple design that is like a breast which means babies are far more likely to accept it. Especially those babies that are being combination fed. It also flexes just like Mom would.
All the Tommee Tippee closer to nature range are BPA free to put your mind at rest. They also come with an anti-colic valve which reduces excessive air-flow, so your little one is only swallowing milk and not air which causes colic and gassiness.
They are wide neck so cleaning is a breeze and they come with a 3 way easy hold system. As they have a compact shape this allows your baby to be fed in a more natural position and be closer to Mom or Dad. The bottle can be held in 3 ways : (1) cradled comfortably in the hand; (2) gripped in the same way as a traditional wide neck bottle; or (3) held at the base.

FAQ Comotomo Bottle vs Tommee Tippee
View in gallery
Do the Tommee Tippee bottles come with the cap for mixing formula?
These bottles do not come with the cap for mixing formula. This can be bought separately.
What is the age range of the Tommee Tippee bottles?
These bottles can be used from newborn and there is no upper age limit. They do come with slow flow nipples, which are suitable for newborns.
As the nipples on the Comotomo bottles are soft do they collapse?
As the nipples are made out of medical grade silicone, they are soft and skin like, but they should not collapse in the middle of feeding. If you are having an issue with the nipple collapsing, then the anti-colic vents may be blocked.
How many bottles should I have for a newborn?
To start with we recommend at least 3-4 bottles, but it depends on how often your newborn is feeding and how quickly you will be able to wash/sanitize bottles after use.
Comotomo Bottle vs Tommee Tippee – The Winner is?
When my children were babies I used Tommee Tippee but that was because I had not heard of Comotomo. My youngest son was breastfed and we had terrible trouble getting him to take a bottle, even the Tommee Tippee closer to nature ones.
It is such a difficult decision to make as both have some fantastic features that really help babies and parents alike. I believe that the unique design of the Comotomo bottles makes them my winner. As a breast-feeding mother the silicone bottle which mimics human skin, I think would have made all the difference to my son in his transition from breast to bottle. That alongside their dual air vent, naturally shaped teats for easy latching and super wide neck design making them easy to clean, means that although they are a relative newcomer to this market that they will still be around for many years to come!
