Thank you for choosing our Advanced Anti-Colic Bottles! Here is everything you need to know to get the best experience with your bottle, for you and baby!
Before first use disassemble and place all the components in boiling water for 5 minutes. This is to ensure hygiene.
This method allows you to easily sterilize bottles using a microwave. Before sterilizing, always disassemble and wash all components thoroughly and rinse in clear water or use dishwasher (top shelf only).
Placing the venting tube into boiling or hot liquid won’t damage it, but it may force liquid up the tube which can cause your bottle to leak when it’s assembled. We recommend following our ‘how to guide’ to make a feed.
No, you can’t use Natural Start Nipples on Advanced Anti-Colic bottles. Natural Start nipples have a built-in air valve, and don’t work with our Advanced Anti Colic bottles. The valve in your Advanced Anti Colic bottles is situated inside the bottle, attached to the end of the venting tube and is shaped like a star. It’s important that you make sure you match the right nipple to the right bottle.
All of our bottles except the 340ml version currently come with slow flow nipples as standard, as they’re best for newborns and most parents generally stock up on bottles before baby arrives. Our 340ml bottle comes with a medium flow nipple.
As your baby grows and can feed more quickly, you can buy faster flowing replacement nipples.
We have medium flow nipples, which most babies are ready for at around 3 months, and a fast flow nipple which is best from around 6 months. The ages are only guides though - you know your baby better than anyone and will be able to tell when they’re ready for a faster flow.
All Tommee Tippee bottles are BPA-free. They’re made of a plastic called polypropylene that’s lightweight, easy to clean, and completely safe. BPA - that’s (CH₃)₂C(C₆H₄OH)₂ for you science geeks - is a chemical that’s been used in some plastics since the 1960s and it’s believed to mess around with your hormones. It’s generally not good, so we don’t use it.
Yes, our bottles love to look after your breast milk. We even have special lids that you can pop on to store your milk in the fridge or freezer. If you’re expressing and storing breast milk, our Express and Go™ range may be handy too - it features a clever pouch that you use to express, store, warm and feed (it’s our all-in-one show). This means there’s no need to transfer milk at any stage, so you’ll never lose a precious drop.
Yes. Our Natural Start and Advanced Anti-Colic bottles are made from polypropylene (PP) that can happily be recycled.
The air draws into the tube and through the star valve away from baby’s milk.
The star valve is a one-way system and seals with every gulp, it prevents milk travelling back up the tube to stop any leaks.
The small holes allow the steam to flow and reach the external surface of the nipple and the internal surface of the hood.
PLEASE NOTE: It’s important that the silicone nipple is not tighten on to base when self-sterilizing in microwave to allow the steam to flow in.
The 50ml of water in the bottle will turn into steam when microwaved*. The steam reaches the temperature necessary to sterilize, killing virus and 99.9% of bacteria. The steam travels around the bottle sterilizing the surface of the tube and silicone valve and through the holes in the screw ring to reach the external surface of the nipple and the internal surface of the hood.
*Based on microwaves from 700 to 1000 Watts.
Ensure the lid of the venting tube is fully closed before sterilizing. You can do this by pressing the centre of the lid with your thumb.
Ensure the inside of the venting tube is thoroughly washed and dried before self-sterilizing.
PLEASE NOTE: It’s important that the silicone nipple is not tightened on to base when self-sterilizing in a microwave to allow the steam to flow.
For peace of mind, all of our Tommee Tippee bottles are anti-colic as standard. This means they’re designed to minimise the amount of air that baby’s consume with their milk and for all babies, this can only be a good thing. However, if your baby does develops colic symptoms (about 20% of babies will) then that’s when we’d recommend using our Advanced Anti-Colic bottle. With an advanced vented tube it draws air away from your baby’s milk, to help combat colic, gas and reflux. It’s our best bottle for reducing feeding discomfort. Whilst our Natural Start bottles have an anti-colic valve in the nipple which helps to reduce symptoms of colic by preventing excessive air from getting into your baby’s milk and only if your baby.
