Those cute babies feed a lot. In fact, they have to drink milk 8 to 12 times a day. It means that your baby bottle if you are mixed feeding, is going to be used a lot so you must ensure that the bottles don’t cause your baby an upset stomach or promote colic. You’d also want the bottles to be safe for your baby to use.
With that, 18 well-known baby bottles were tested and checked if they are worth the reviews and popularity. These bottles may be made of glass or are with no BPA. To help you choose the best baby bottle for your baby, these are the top 13 baby bottles that moms all over approve.
Compared to other bottles in the list, this one can be considered more expensive than most as it costs $14 each. However, Comotomo Natural Feel Baby Bottles are also available for $21 for two pieces. Although it just came out of the market, the bottle is already garnering attention among the moms. Since it has an ample-sized nipple base, it makes the transition from breastfeeding to bottle-feeding much.

For only about five dollars each, a Philips AVENT Natural Baby Bottle is cheaper as compared to the first one. You can choose whether from a plastic bottle or a glass bottle. Although the base and nipple are somewhat similar to the Tommee Tippee, it is narrower both overall and in the nipple base. The nipples are also soft, and this is good at preventing the bottle from taking in the air and also from preventing babies from being colicky. The anti-colic bottle of this series allows babies to hold the bottle.
Dr. Brown’s Original Baby Bottles
Costing about $4-5 a bottle, this bottle is excellent in preventing, gas, colic, and fuss. Since it uses a unique vent system created by the owner of the bottles himself, it prevents any negative pressure vacuum to form while the baby is feeding. The bottles are also designed to feel like real breasts to have. Although the plastic used by this is BPA-free, the glass version of this bottle is more recommended. However, cleaning the bottles, especially the vent system, can be difficult.

Joovy BOOB PPSU or Glass Baby Bottles
The Joovy BOOB bottles are offered in three types: glass, PPSU or Polyphenylsulfone, and PP or polypropylene.

Munchkin Latch Baby Bottles
Although it’s still new in the market, the Munchkin Latch Baby bottles already have some excellent features that make it stand out. It has an anti-colic valve that’s unique from Dr. Brown’s design. This is because it’s located at the bottom of the bottle and thus makes it easier to wash as compared to the bottles of Dr. Brown. The way the valve is also designed allows in a way for your little one not to ingest a lot of air, thus reducing gas and colic.
Flipsi Natural Silicone Baby Bottles
The Flipsi Natural Silicon Baby bottles are similar to the Playtex bottles which had disposable milk bags, back in the day. The difference is that there is a reservoir for milk made from silicone. This can then be put within the bottle and just place the nipple back. The silicone allows the nipple cap to be sealed nicely in the bottle. The flexible silicon also allows the negative vacuum or back pressure to build up, thus preventing gas, spit-up, and colic.
Playtex Ventaire Baby Bottles
For only $4 per 9-ounce bottle, you can already have a Playtex Ventaire Baby bottle. Playtex has been around for a long time now and had been used by moms for several decades.

The Born Free BPA-Free Baby Bottles only cost around $5 per 9-ounce bottle that is already making waves among moms despite it being new in the market. This one uses a venting system called ActiveFlow which can reduce gasses and colic in babies. While it does work well, cleaning it is also a hassle because of the small pieces of stuff you have to clean.
Minbie Newborn BPA-free Baby Bottles
This one is an expensive bottle to chart on the list as it costs about $10 a bottle and the costs of the nipples are separate. The nipples cost $5. The shape of the Minbie bottle nipples is unique and supports latch-on. Not just that but they also feel natural and mimic breastfeeding motion. However, the slow flow claimed is faster than what the other brands offered.
The Kiinde Breastmilk Collection, Feeding, and Storage System
This one is less of a baby bottle and more of a feeding system. Although one might think that this shouldn’t be included in the list as this isn’t a baby bottle, it would be good if you could check it out. The feeding system works by using pouches similar to a juice pouch and connecting it to the breast pump. Afterward, you can store it in the freezer or fridge and use it for feeding later on. There is quite a learning curve for this one. This can cost about $30-70 depending on what is included in the system.
Conclusions. Baby bottles are different from each other. Likewise, babies are also different from each other and may have their preferences in their bottles. A baby may latch onto one bottle but not with the other. You have to know what your baby prefers first before buying a bottle. If you have money to spare, you can purchase different bottles to check which ones your baby will latch onto easily.
