Funny enough, the MAM Easy Start Anti-Colic Bottle wasn’t our first choice of baby bottles. For the first two months, we were using the Tommy Tippee bottles, and the only MAM Easy Start Anti-Colic Bottle we had was a free sample that came with some baby products we had bought.
At about the two month mark, he just started hating the Tommee Tippee bottles so we decided to add that extra MAM bottle we had into the rotation and we haven’t looked back since.
Safe for Baby and Vetted
We can definitely start off by highlighting the most obvious: this product was designed in consultation with medical experts, designers and parents. In addition to that, this product is BPA free and made from safe and environmentally friendly materials. These are of course standards that are not unique to MAM and are quite common with the best brands, but definitely good to know.
The MAM Nipple Design
If I had to guess why our little guy wanted the switch, it would come down to the nipple design. The MAM nipples are flat and soft which they claim makes them very similar to breast nipples nits making it not only a non-collapsible perfect fit, but one that is also less likely for a baby to reject or struggle with nipple confusion. This design also contributes to reducing gas, reflux and colic.
Cleaning (and Self-Sterilizing)
Can Be Annoying to Clean
This is a bottle that is 6 different parts, so washing them can be annoying depending what mood you’re in. But we’ve concluded that its worth it for us. The trade off was having an easy to clean bottle that our baby hated and led to him being gassy and colicky.
Replace the Bottles Every 2-3 months
It’s often recommended to change your baby bottles every 4 months or so, especially when you start to see cracks, discoloration etc. Because we sterilize our bottles every 2-3 days, We do it every 2-3 months.
Final Score: 4/5
