Testing Dr Brown’s Anti-Colic Options+ Wide-Neck Baby Bottle

The first and most important factor is that these bottles are anti colic and they help tremendously to stop your baby from not enjoying their meal because of discomfort. You will notice a great reduction from first use and baby will no longer be upset but actually enjoy drinking their milk. My baby now sleeps well and doesn't wake up in pain so happy baby and happy mum. The bottles are a cute woodland theme suitable for any gender and they are comfortable to hold. Very easy to put together too but can be a bit tricky to clean especially the inside but not a big problem. Very natural looking teat that resembles the breast so the transition from breast to bottle was a non stressful one too. The two vent option makes it a great way to save money as the bottle can still be used once baby isn't colicky anymore.

The design of the Anti-Colic Options+ Wide-Neck Baby Bottle was cute & fun with a jungle theme. The bottles appearance was sleek & well made- it looked like a high end product. The bottle was easy for the baby to try to grasp & hold when using this. It kept the milk warm & the flow of the bottle suited my baby. It also helped his bouts of colic especially at night time & seemed to reduce his wind as the formula he is on is an allergy one.

These bottles are great as they offer both standard and anti colic feeding for babies. The bottle itself has a great shape making it easy for babies to hold as they get older. I loved the pattern on the bottle which offered great interaction for my baby to look at the animals once the feed had finished.

The product makes my life easier as a mum by helping my baby take his bottle more often. He often refuses his bottle due to his teeth/wind etc , especially from other well known anti colic brands. It has helped to reduce his irritability at night time by improving his trapped wind and ensuring he doesn’t wake as often as he is willing to drink more from this.

The Anti-Colic Options+ Wide-Neck Baby Bottle is a classic design, style and shape with the added features, the fact that is has an anti colic vent systems and the flow is controlled by baby means, a happier more contented feed child. My daughter was 12 weeks old The bottles went everywhere with us, we used the quite a few times took her a little while to get used to the teat at first, buts seemed to get the hang of it.

These bottles are cleverly designed to suit your babies needs, not only to they have a anti colic system, but they also allow your baby to take in the milk at its own pace, this avoid excess milk coming out of baby's mouth or guzzling milk as its coming out quicker than there drinking it, removable vent are also a key features.

As my baby isn't colicky anymore he sleeps well and isn't disturbed by pain so it means I can sleep well too. I started using this bottle from 8weeks onwards as I was finding breastfeeding hard with baby not latching properly. The transition was so easy as the teat is very close to a breast shape. Baby was able to latch on with ease and start feeding. Now my baby is older and no longer needs to use the vent as he no longer suffers from colic issues. It has saved me money as don't need to buy a new bottle. It's a 2 in 1 bottle so a fab purchase for anyone. It has held up well months later doing its job perfectly. It is easy to assemble, use and clean though at first the vent made cleaning the bottle not the most best of tasks but now it is no different to cleaning any other item. Baby is happy and able to hold bottle himself but gripping it so encouraging self feed too.

Final thoughts

The Anti-Colic Options+ Wide-Neck Baby Bottle offers both standard and anti colic feeding for babies. The bottles have been designed to be fun and playful for children as well as being made practical for parents. The breast-like teat shape encourages babies to keep a latch on to the bottle and to continue feeding which eases the transition from breast feeding to bottle and back again.
