Comotomo offers an update on so-called “natural nursers” – baby bottles made out of silicone or a similar material, and designed to more closely approximate a mother’s breast.  These bottles tend to resonate with folks who primarily breastfeed, and especially those who experience trouble getting baby to take a bottle.

Sporting a more compact, squishable shape, Comotomo Natural Feel bottles improve upon an earlier competitor – the Adiri Natural Nurser – in their smaller size and more flexible material, which make for a more intimate in-hand experience.  A big benefit of the flexible silicone is the ability to manipulate the milk somewhat as you feed by squeezing the bottle, keeping air pressure more constant and presumably decreasing the air your child might take in through the nipple, especially as the bottle runs dry.  It also looks to fit more nicely in the hand – Adiri bottles are quite wide, and can be less ergonomic for smaller hands.

Reviewers on Amazon have mentioned that it can be challenging to balance Comotomo bottles neatly on their bases – we can definitely see that in their exaggerated egg shape.  But the shape also allows bottles to nest (when disassembled) in storage, which is a big bonus over nearly every other bottle on the market.

You can buy Comotomo bottles on Amazon in two sizes as well as multi-packs.  A single bottle will run you a pretty steep $15.99 for 150mL or $16.99 for 250mL.  As with other bottles, there are additional nipples (or “bottle teats” as they call them) available for $6.99 per two-pack, with variable flow based on the usual age ranges (0-3 months, 3-6 months, etc.) translating to slow, medium, and fast nursing styles.

Bottom line: Comotomo Natural Feel bottles are a bit expensive, but are also thoughtfully designed and even award-winning.  They deliver both style and function, and are a great BPA-free option worth considering.

8/18 GREAT BUY ALERT: Comotomo Natural Feel bottles are featured for sale on design discount site Fab.com at a decent discount – $12-$13 for the bottles, and $5 for nipple packs.
