Bottom line

Parents who want their babies' bottle-feeding experience to mimic breastfeeding as much as possible will want to consider Comotomo Natural Feel bottles. Their soft, squeezable silicone nipples make it easy for babies to latch on, reviewers say, and many parents report that these bottles were the only ones that worked for their primarily breastfed babies. The bottles are durable and easy to clean, but users would like clearer markings and a design that's less prone to tipping.

Ease of use

Easy to clean, but hard to read. Reviewers say Comotomo Natural Feel bottles are a cinch to clean. The wide, 2.5-inch neck makes it easy to wash the bottles by hand, with no need to jam a bottle brush into small crevices. The bottles are also dishwasher-safe, and the three-piece design leads to few complaints about assembly. Most parents say the bottles are leak-free. Their round, breast-like shape earns a lot of praise as comfortable to hold for both parents and babies, but some reviewers find that the bottles tip easily on flat surfaces. Several others note that the measurements are hard to read on the frosted exterior, and a few say the bottles are too big for many standard bottle warmers.

Durability

Medical-grade silicone goes the distance. Comotomo says its Natural Feel bottles and nipples are made of medical-grade silicone that's heat-resistant and can be boiled for sterilization. A few reviewers say the downside is a bottle exterior that's slightly sticky and can attract lint, hair or other types of fuzz. Otherwise, they give the bottles very good marks for durability. Parents can choose from four nipple speeds to accommodate growing babies' different drinking styles, although many say it can be confusing to tell the nipples apart.

Lifestyle features

Bottles and nipples feel more like mom. Comotomo Natural Feel bottles are made to mimic a baby's experience at the breast, and most reviewers say they do this very well. A gentle squeeze simulates a mother's "let-down," and several parents report getting even the most reluctant babies to drink an ounce or two in this manner. Most say the long, soft, oversized nipple is easy for their babies to latch on to, although a few say it can collapse inward too easily. The nipples also have anti-colic vents that release extra air. Comotomo Natural Feel bottles come in 5- and 8-ounce sizes and in two colors, green and pink. They are BPA-, PVC- and phthalate-free.

Comotomo Natural Feel bottles rank third in reviewers' tests but are named an Editors' Choice for their soft, breastfeeding-like feel, leak resistance and comfort. The wide neck and "let-down effect" also earn praise, but it can be tricky to read markings and the outside of the bottle is sticky.
