Products Nannies Love

Every baby is an individual and has different likes and dislikes. This includes baby bottles. When we asked 110 nannies what their favorite baby bottle is in 2021, almost all answered that their favorite baby bottle is the bottle the baby likes. If the baby is having trouble with a bottle, try different brands until you find what works best for the infant.

Amazon is a great place to buy baby bottles because they make pricing clear and they also offer what they call the Amazon Family Program. It’s the perfect way to get the most out of your money, as it provides members with 20% off of baby product subscriptions.

1. Dr. Brown’s

Of the nannies that took our poll, the baby bottles nannies liked the most are Dr. Brown’s. Dr. Brown’s Original Bottle have a special tubed venting system that’s designed to help reduce gas and colic. The Dr. Brown’s Original Bottle Starter Kit comes with five bottles (three in the 8-ounce size and two in the 4-ounce size), nipples, vents, and even multiple brushes to keep the bottles clean. But Dr. Brown’s also got the most complaints from our nannies for having too may parts, making it difficult to clean.

2. Philips Avent Baby Bottle

The second most popular baby bottle from the nannies that took our poll is the Philips Avent Baby Bottle. The wide breast-shaped nipple promotes natural latch-on so parents and nannies can combine breastfeeding and bottle feeding. The flexible spiral design combined with the comfort petals allow for a natural movement while baby feeds. The nipples have Airflex vent technology and are designed to reduce colic and discomfort by venting air away from baby’s tummy. The Philips Avent Natural Baby Bottle Essentials is perfect for the new parent with multiple bottle and nipple sizes and bottle accessories.

3. Evenflo Balance Bottles

Evenflo Balance Bottles have a naturally-sloped shape for a baby’s lips to rest and maintain a healthy wide latch and a nipple length designed to fit comfortably in a baby’s mouth. This set includes a Slow Flow Nipple that has an intentional, slower flow rate for a calm, gulp-free feeding at baby’s pace. Balance and Wide Neck Nipples are available in the following flows: Slow, Medium, and Fast. An added bonus is that parents can pump directly into these wide neck bottles with the use of the Evenflo Balance and Wide Neck Pump Adapter (sold separately) for added convenience.

4. Tommee Tippee Starter Set

Many nannied that took our survey explain that the Tommee Tippee bottles are the best baby bottles for colic. The wide neck bottle makes cleaning easy and the bottles are suitable for use in dishwasher, microwave, and steam sterilization. The nipple with an anti-colic valve reduces excessive air flow, so little ones ingest more milk and less air. The easy hold bottle can be held in 3 ways — cradled comfortably in the hand, gripped in the same way as a traditional wide neck bottle, or held from the base–making feeding comfortable for everyone. Tommee Tippee offers different flow rates to keep up with a growing baby.

5. MAM Anti-Colic Bottle

Of the nannies that listed MAM Anti-Colic Bottles as their favorite baby bottle most replied they like these bottles because they are easy to take apart, reassemble, and sterilize. Each MAM Anti-Colic Bottle is self-sterilizing in three steps, making it easy to feed a baby when you don’t have a bottle sterilizer on hand. To sterilize just fill the base with 20ml of water, put the nipple on the base, and close the bottle. Heat the bottle in the microwave for three minutes and it’s done! It comes with a MAM Medium Flow Silicone Nipple for babies 0 months and older and is accepted by 94% of babies.

6. NUK Smooth Flow Anti-Colic Bottle

The Smooth Flow nipple of the NUK Smooth Flow Anti-Colic Bottle adjusts the milk flow based on how a baby drinks, adapting to their suction strength to ensure they will always have the right flow rate. The SafeTemp temperature indicator lets you know when milk is too hot with just a glance. The blue thermometer indicator fades when milk is too hot and reappears when milk has cooled and is safe to drink. Five nannies said that these bottles helped reduced the infants in their care from spitting up during and after feedings. Nannies also like that the neck of the bottle is wide making it easy to clean. They are also dishwasher safe.

8. Munchkin Latch Baby Bottle

If you care for a squirmy infant, nannies say this may the right baby bottle for you to use. The Munchkin Latch Baby Bottle nipple was designed to be ultra flexible so it can stretch. While feeding, the uniquely designed nipple flexes as baby’s head moves. This allows baby to maintain proper latch, decreasing ingestion of air and reducing feeding frustrations for baby. The Latch Stage 1 Nipple’s flow has been reduced to mimic the breast. Stage 2 and Stage 3 nipples allow you to increase the flow as a baby grows.

9. Comotomo Baby Bottle
