Thank you for choosing our Natural Start Silicone Bottles! Here is everything you need to know to get the best experience with your bottle, for you and baby!
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).
Remove the travel lid before self-sterilizing. Ensure the travel lid is thoroughly washed before use.
Microwave recommended times for all bottle sizes.
Based on microwaves from 700 to 1000 Watts.
The simple answer is no, due to the different valves. Most of our products have interchangeable parts to make life as simple as possible. But the Natural Start Nipples have a built-in air valve, and don’t work properly on our Advanced Anti-Colic bottles.
The valve will work wherever it’s positioned but the best place for the valve is at the top, near your baby's nose.
All of our bottles Silicone Baby Bottles come with slow flow nipples as standard, as they’re best for newborns and most parents generally stock up on bottles before baby arrives.
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. These bottles are made of Silicone but are BPA free for your reassurance. 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 Silicone Baby Bottles are made from Silicone and can be recycled.
The small holes allow the steam to 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 tightened on to base when self-sterilizing in a microwave to allow the steam to flow.
The 50ml of water in the bottle will turn into steam when microwaved*. The steam reaches the temperature necessary to sterilise, killing virus and 99.9% of bacteria. The steam travels around the bottle and through the holes in the screw ring to reach the external surface of the nipple and the internal surface of the hood.

The silicone bottles come with a handy travel lid to stop any unwanted leaks on the go. Please ensure the travel lid is thoroughly washed and dried before use.
