The original breast-like bottle
With our award-winning** Closer to Nature baby bottle, switching between breast and bottle feeding has never been simpler. Inspired by mom, designed by experts.
Shaped like a breast because babies prefer it that way. The breast-like nipple allows babies to latch on easily and supports the transition between breast and bottle. Made of soft silicone, it feels closer to skin for complete comfort at feeding time.
A latch made in heaven
Our easy latch-on nipple has been designed with breastfeeding experts to mimic the natural flex, stretch and movement of a mom’s breast. 95%* of moms reported that their baby accepted our nipple and would recommend to others.
The Closer to Nature nipple with anti-colic valve reduces excessive air flow, so little ones ingest more milk and less air, preventing symptoms of colic.
The easy hold bottle can be held in 3 ways– cradled comfortably in the hand, gripped in the same way as a traditional wide neck bottle, or held from the base, allowing baby to feed in a natural position and making feeding comfortable for everyone.
Easy clean and BPA free
The wide neck bottle makes cleaning easy and the bottles are suitable for use in the dishwasher, microwave and sterilizers. All Tommee Tippee bottles are BPA- and phthalate-free for your ultimate reassurance.
Go with the flow
We offer different flow rates to keep up with your growing baby. Every baby is different but as a guide we suggest extra slow, slow flow and vari flow for 0+months, medium flow for 3+ months and fast flow for 6+ months. The following are all potential signs that you may need to increase the bottle nipple flow rate: • The bottle nipple collapses during feeding. • It takes longer than 20 minutes for baby to finish a bottle • Baby tugs at the nipple • Baby falls asleep mid-bottle
Our nipples are silky soft. Change them if they get damaged or bitten by tiny teeth. Closer to Nature baby bottles are ONLY compatible with Closer to Nature nipples and cannot be used with advanced anti-colic bottle nipples.
When assembling your baby bottle, hold the nipple up to the light to check the slit in the silicone isn’t sealed closed. If it has, pinch it gently between your fingers or with nipple tongs to re-open. If the valve has sealed closed, your bottle won’t vent properly.
