Parents' Best Baby Bottles of the Year
You can't bottle happiness, but you can bottle milk and formula—and for your baby, that's pretty close. If you're in the market for a new one, check out our round-up of the best baby bottles of the year.
It's an industry first: Chicco Duo is a hybrid of unbreakable glass inside, lightweight BPA-free plastic outside. The tech means milk touches glass, but the plastic reduces heft.
Best Soft Baby Bottle
The squishy Comotomo baby bottle is a hit with green-minded parents, since it's made from silicone, not plastic. It works well for babies who alternate between bottle and breast.
Best "Breast" Baby Bottle
Known among moms as "the breast bottle," Mimijumi has a domed top that may help some newborns latch on by approximating the nursing experience.
Best Breast Pump Baby Bottle
Often parents try the Medela Breast Milk Bottle because it fits onto the brand's popular breast pump. But it turns out that many babies happen to love the simple design. Win-win.
Easiest-to-Clean Baby Bottle
Anti-colic features are built into the nipple of the Baby Brezza Natural Bottle, and the whole thing is made up of just two easy-to-wash pieces, saving prep time.
Best Anti-Colic Baby Bottle
A MAM Easy Start Anti-Colic Bottle is vented at the base, with stackable pieces you can sterilize in the microwave.
Baby Bottle for Gas and Reflux
Medical professionals developed the Dr. Brown's Options+ Wide Neck Baby Bottle for superior protection against the gas and reflux thought to contribute to colic.
Best Glass Baby Bottle with Sleeve
Philips Avent Natural Glass Baby Bottles have a new sleeve to prevent breaking and keep milk warm or cool.
Best Convertible Baby Bottle
You'll use it for years! A Tommee Tippee Closer to Nature 3 in 1 Glass Bottle can turn into a sippy cup, then a snack cup.
Best Stackable Baby Bottle
The Nanobébé's shape distributes milk so it warms up fast and allows for stackable fridge storage: Place new ones on the bottom and take from the top.
Baby Bottle for Easy Grip
Nontoxic silicone makes the Olábaby Gentle Bottle a lightweight alternative to plastic that's also easy to hold. And the off-center nipple helps babies latch.
Best Hassle-Free Baby Bottle
Pour milk in, then push the top down with one hand and turn it to lock—no tightening needed to get this square Hegen Bottle ready. Its nipple plus anti-colic vents prevent backflow.
Great Bottle for Pumping
Pump directly into the silicone pods for the Playtex Baby Nurser and freeze them. Defrost one in warm water, place it in the bottle shell, and go. Pods can be cleaned and reused.
Baby Bottle With Heat Alert
A blue indicator on the NUK Smooth Flow Anti-Colic Bottle with SafeTemp fades if milk is hot, signaling to cool it until the blue reappears. Its nipple allows your baby to control the flow.
Best Bottle for Combo Feeding
Designed to facilitate a seamless transition between breast and bottle, the Lansinoh Breastfeeding Bottle features a special NaturalWave nipple that mimics the texture of the real thing.
Best "Slow and Steady" Bottle
Many babies, particularly nursing ones, prefer a relaxed pace to hurried gulping. The Evenflo Feeding Balance + Bottle achieves that with a gradually sloped, slow-flow nipple.
Baby Bottle That Fights Gas
The silicone pouch of the Boon Nursh gently collapses as your baby drinks, minimizing air entering their belly. Flip the inner silicone sleeve inside out for easy cleaning.
Best Newborn-Friendly Bottle
There's an anti-colic valve at the bottom of the BPA-free plastic Munchkin Latch Bottle to prevent gas. And its flexible nipple stretches to the back of the palate, aiding latch.
