Ratings Overview – Baby Bottle
by Lindsay Ellis
Our AssessmentReviewers rate 18 bottles after real-world testing with babies from 3 to 9 months old. The bottles are scored on nipples, ease of cleaning, leakage, ease of use and eco health. Write-ups are very thorough and seem unbiased, although parents could argue with how the categories are weighted if they have different priorities.

Best Baby Bottle
by "Jamie C."
Our AssessmentBestcovery.com names five bottles in the categories of Best Bottle Overall, Best Bottle for Newborns and Best Breastfeeding Bottle. The short reviews are informative, but they aren't comparative and don't note many cons, if any, for each bottle. The product guide "expert" chooses top picks, and runners-up are based on user reviews from around the web.
by Contributors to Amazon.com
Our AssessmentAmazon.com is one of a parent's best resources for real-world reviews of baby bottles. Feedback is often quite detailed and even-handed, but expensive bottles may have fewer reviews than cheaper ones. Prospective buyers should read carefully, since posters sometimes wrongly fault a product for bad experiences with a seller or shipping. Readers should also beware of older reviews that might discuss an older version of a product with flaws that have since been addressed.
Baby Bottle Reviews
by Contributors to Buzzillions.com
Our AssessmentBuzzillions.com is another helpful owner-review product site, and it sometimes has more comments for a particular bottle than Amazon. Reviews aren't quite as detailed, but a helpful feature tallies each listed pro and con so prospective buyers don't have to comb through every post quite as thoroughly. The site includes reviews from popular merchants like Babies"R"Us.
