The Tommee Tippee Closer to Nature 260 ml Easivent BPA-free Feeding Bottles (Pack of 6) has an RRP of £22.99, and this is the price that they're sold at in Boots. Right now Amazon has them on special offer of £13.12. Delivery is free with Amazon Prime. The same set has been seen in Asda at times for £10, but as there's no telling when or how often they might do that sort of reduction instore, it doesn't really help if you need to get some bottles now.
Although it is always best to have a go at breastfeeding, it isn't always as easy as the midwives lead you to believe in ante natal classes. I had assumed that my son would have some instinctive clue about what to do but no, latching on took a few days for us, and he was never able to feed properly.
You can either feel guilty about this, or accept that really in this day and age there's no need to be so stressed as a new mum. I ended up doing a mix of breast and bottle, and while I would still have preferred to have breastfed solely, at least I know I did my best.
These are the features of the bottles:
- Teat designed to mimic the natural flex and feel of a mum's breast
- Super-sensitive valve
- Soft, natural-feel silicone teat
- Easy-hold bottle with a slow-flow teat
