About the Company
Tommee Tippee®, from the UK-based Mayborn Group Limited, is the number-one brand of infant and toddler feeding products in Great Britain. Since 1965, Tommee Tippee has earned a reputation for its clever ideas, product quality and simply intuitive designs that promote natural development at every age, stage and feeding need. Today, Tommee Tippee innovations provide comfort for babies and peace of mind for parents in 45 countries around the world.


Thanks to the Mom Bloggers Club, I am participating in the blog tour to welcome Tommee Tippee products to the U.S.! Beginning in January, their Closer to Nature® baby bottles, nipples, pacifiers and feeding accessories, as well as its Explora® toddler cups and feeding products, can be found at Babies“R”Us stores and online at Babiesrus.com/tommeetippee. In April, the assortment will be available in Toys“R”Us stores nationwide.

My Review
I received a sample of the Tommee Tippee baby bottle and a two-pack of their sippy cups. The first thing that impressed me - apart from the BPA- and Phthalate-free plastic the company uses - was the smart design. These sippy cups and bottles are more than adorable! They are wide for easy cleaning, perfectly shaped for little - and big - hands to hold comfortably, and are as close to nature as a plastic bottle can be. The nipple on the bottle has a wide base, the spouts of the sippies are soft. The sippies are in bright, happy colors that make them easy to spot across the room in that corner or in a dark spot under the bed.

The sippy cups I received are Stage 2 - for babies and toddlers over 9 months. They hold 11 oz. and have little lids that protect the spout. The sippy cups feature the so called advance-flo technology for easy drinking and are spill-proof. The valve pieces consist of two parts that are taken apart for cleaning. Despite being different from what I've seen previously, they are quite easy to take apart and put together.

The baby bottle holds 9 oz. and is similarly quite easy to clean. If you've struggled with bottle brushes and nipple brushes, if you've soaked and scrubbed and boiled water to sterilize these things, you know how important that is. The bottle is designed with an anti-colic valve that prevents air ingestion and leaks. It comes with a slow-flow nipple, and I also received a two-pack of fast-flow nipples. The company also offers med flow and variable flow nipples - all can be used only with Tommee Tippee Closer to Nature bottles.

The bottom line: my kids were very happy with the new additions to their drinking routine, and sipped and slurped happily from the Tommee Tippee cups and bottle.

    What a great product. Boy, I remember sterilizing and scrubbing cups and bottles. The best thing besides the glow in the dark feature is that they are designed with an anti-colic valve that prevents air ingestion and leaks.
    Thanks.

    I wish they had these around when mine was small, many moons ago.

    I used Playtex nursers with my first daughter and I thought they were the best bottles because she didn't swallow alot of air. This time, we used Tommee Tippee and I think they are better. She's not getting air and it is easier not to have to keep buying new inserts like we did with Playtex. The bottles are wide so that my 6 month old can hold them herself, and has been doing so since she was 4 months. I breast feed mainly, and she's not had issues with occasional bottles, perhaps because the shape is more natural, or maybe because I use a nipple shield.

    Jess prefers the nipple shield and one time I was out, had forgotten it, and she needed to nurse. She wouldn't take my bare nipple, so in desperation I took the one off my spare bottle and shoved it on my breast. It doesn't work as well as a nipple shield, but it worked well enough that day to feed my daughter. Disaster averted.
