Parenting Awards bottles


Philips AVENT Natural Bottle

The Philips AVENT Natural Bottle is designed to mimic a mother’s breast, allowing infants to bottle-feed in a way that feels more natural. This newly redesigned bottle features a wide, more breast-like shape providing for an easy latch-on, unique comfort petals for increased softness and flexibility without collapse, and an advanced anti-colic system that sends air into the bottle instead of Baby’s tummy.


MAM Anti-Colic Bottle

The MAM Anti-Colic Bottle regulates the pressure balance of milk with ventilation holes, allowing the milk to flow evenly and without air bubbles for reduced gas. The patented design reduces nipple confusion, making it easier to feed Baby, and the wide mouth allows for easier filling and washing. There’s even an oversized scale to help sleepy moms measure milk accurately in the wee hours. The bottle is available in blue, pink, green, purple and white in both 5-ounce and 8-ounce sizes.


Born Free Classic Bottle

The Born Free Classic Bottle allows Baby to control the milk-flow, resulting in a natural experience that’s closer to breastfeeding. The naturally fuss-free ActiveFlow Venting Technology is clinically designed to reduce the symptoms of colic. Born Free Classic Bottles are BPA- and PVC-free, making them naturally safe, and ideal for sterilization because they’re made from premium, durable material. As an added bonus, they’re also dishwasher-safe.


The First Years GumDrop Slim Neck Bottle

The 100 percent silicone nipple on The First Years GumDrop Slim Neck Bottle has the same shape and feel as the GumDrop Pacifier. The narrow bottle design is also perfect for older infants to hold. This BPA-free bottle comes with a leak-resistant travel cover and includes a medium-flow nipple.
