Best Baby Formula Bottles out there
I did heaps of research and tested about three other brand bottles before I found Pigeon and they are the best. Took me about a month to find them after starting bub on bottles (and trying others and spending a fortune) so hope this review helps the mums and dads out there. Bub took this one straight away, never leaks, the slim neck teets are so good for her little mouth, easy to wash and you can sterilise them. So happy with my purchase and I would recommend this product.
Good but doesn't go over 240ml for size
The pigeon narrow neck teats are the only one's my child likes however at 11 months old she has recently been drinking a lot more then the capacity of 240ml bottle allows. I went online and this is the biggest they have in the narrow neck range so now I'm in the situation where I need to somehow find bigger bottles in other brangs that will fit more milk and the preferred teats. The wide neck bottles go up to 330ml but my daughter will not take these teats. It's a shame they don't allow for a bigger size for the narrow neck bottles
Purchased in September 2019 at pigeonbaby.com.au for A$9.00.
Best bottles I’ve used
Best bottles I’ve used and would highly recommend them to anyone. Have had many other brands and would never try another brand again. These settled all our issues. Just wish there was a thermal pouch made for them.
Finally a bottle our breastfed baby will take!
A familiar story; our breastfed baby started refusing his bottle at 8 weeks. After trying five other brands with no luck I thought I’d give one last chance to the Pidgeon bottle I saw in an airport chemist. Thank goodness I did - we have to looked back!
Highly recommended for babies !
These are the best bottles. This is the brand used in special care nurseries in hospital . If your bubba is a gulper and suffering from tummy pains these are really helpful. Combined with the anti colic teats your baby will be more settled, have less tummy pains and as a result mum's get more sleep . Highly recommended.
The only bottle our little one will take!
After the disappointment of not being able to breastfeed Kicked in, we were quickly on the hunt for a good bottle for our LO. She rejected all the bottles we’d be given, and finally someone suggested the pigeon bottles.
Feeding time is so easy now, she has not had any issues with taking in too much air after feeds and the bottle is easy to clean.
The only issue we’ve had is super minor, and easy to fix. We just found we had to replace the teats sooner than we expected. But no biggie at all!
Great to start with but not after 2-3 months of use
These bottles were absolutely fantastic when first purchased but after using it for a few months now the cap threads have become lose and the teats collapse every single time.
We took them back to baby bunting and described the issues and they said “these bottles are not meant to be sterilised in hot water or steam... try the yellow ones instead.” I mean why make baby bottles which cannot be sterilised?
So after spending $60 on these bottles (only 3 months ago) we are having to go buy new ones as bub simply can no longer drink from these.
Wow wow wow
After purchasing several bottles for my baby I have finally found the one that works the best. The flow is just perfect which baby seems to enjoy much better now, no milk spills and the flexible teat fits perfectly in the mouth.
I really like the slim and light weight design it has, simple is always best. Just need to stock up on more bottles now finally yay!!
The best bottle I have used!!
Can’t fault this brand at all perfect for fussy babies that won’t take to other brands/wide necks!! Teats are amazing and are made soft to mimic breast and great for windy/colic babies. I recommend to everyone now after using Avent and tommee tippee in the past with first baby. The teat is the same as they use in the bottles at the hospital(QLD).
We Had to change bottles for my 5 month old cause I got fed up of leaky avent ones, and I have to say I love these! Baby took to them right away and I love how light they are. Good price for them as well. I know they don’t look as nice but baby was happy to drink from these as wel cause he could hold on to them himself. Many pro s!
Not too happy
Bought these bottles recommended by a friend, baby was premmie and they were the closest ones to the hospital ones.. was happy with them till about 3 months old, went to next size teat and teat started collapsing.. went out and bought all new bottles and teats, thinking that bottles may be worn, and the same thing is happening, called up company and lady advised to loosen bottle a tiny bit, did that and milk leaking all over baby, when I pull bottle out of baby’s mouth teat pops into the bottle. Also you can’t tell what teat size you have in bo...ttle, unlike avent bottles, they are numbered.. so I’ve now got 12 teats (bigger ones ready for next stage, plus ones baby is using now) unless I keep the smaller size seperate I would be able to distinguish the different sizes, probably wouldn’t recommend this bottle...
I used this product for the last 2 years. They are a fantastic bottle, couldn't fault them. Never leaked, inexpensive, easy to wash and lasted long time. I will definitely plan use this product for my next child. I highly recommend this product. Also sold at a wide variety of stores.
Beats the rest of the bottle!
Pigeons are the best! ! I am very happy that I follow my mother's advice which feeding bottle is the best! No second thoughts because right after my mother's advice, I went to product review to check which feeding bottles are the best and no surprise, it is PIGEON! I will always recommend this bottle to new moms. I have no problems feeding my BUB especially I am doing both BF and formula! She loves her bottle! I got a gift from someone, AVENT and told me they are the best! I don't think so! Avent are soo huge and hard to take off the LID! It occupys soo much space in my baby feeding bag!
It's the best
So after trying all the bottle in the market I've got the one I needed the most. It's simply the best for me and my baby. I'd tried medela dalna bottle, minbie, advent, closer to the nature and etc etc but nothing worked out well. My baby refuses all the bottle expect pigeon one. The reason is that the teats are soft and feel like natural breast. It has outlet for air also, So a plus point. Try this. This is a good product. Happy with pigeon.
Finally a bottle my bub will take
I have tried many different bottles for my baby since she was 4 months old. Finally at 8 months old I tried this bottle and she took it straight away with no fuss! So so happy with them my baby now mix feeds from breast to bottle with no problems at all. I just wish they made some prettier versions of the bottle. But i really can't complain because this bottle has saved my life!!! Just did a big order off their website.
After purchasing 3 different brands of bottles l finally found one my prem baby could drink out of properly. Great product. Cheapest pricing in chemist warehouse but Baby buntings matched their price . Great product , would recommend if your baby doesn't drink well from wide teats . Highly recommend
Nice size, good quality, reduces wind
I initially bought these bottles just because they look like bottles, not like plastic body parts! My lactation consultant told me later they have the best shaped teat of any bottles - long and soft, to reach further into baby's mouth, mimicking breastfeeding much better than those more 'realistic' shaped bottles. Also found that baby gets less wind than when using Avent or the hospital bottles.
I was using closer to nature bottles for my newborn but the teat would collapse and he would get lots of wind, so we changed over to these bottles and he had no trouble at all with them, his wind improved dramatically. He would easily have good feeds. Never had a problem with leaks either. Strongly recommend
I purchased these bottles after having to many issues with the "close to nature brand" teat is more practical and has less leakage new born drinks well from this bottle, teat fits nicely to mouth, and slim bottle shape makes it easy to carry in a fridge bag,
Down side, they are pretty expensive and when buying a 2 pack of the 240ml the teat size only comes 4-5 months so having to purchase seperate teats for a new born was a more expensive exercise
2 teats will set you back $9 (bottle not included)
Questions & Answers
Hi, I am a mum to be and I was wondering which pigeon bottles you would suggest for a newborn as I am unable to breastfeed. Is pigeon bottles also compatible with the tommee tippee bottle warmer?
I purchased at newborn as I only breastfed for a short while and still using at 13 months the Pigeon Flexible Slim Neck Teat and Bottle 240ml (I also suggest to get the 240ml bottles only as the smaller ones 120ml your bubba will grow out of quickly once the formula increases.
Regarding the Bottle Warmer I am not sure as I never used one, I had always given my baby room temperature water with formula (boiled first and cooled on the bench) she had it that way from the beginning and I found that was easier than warming it up each time and saved a lot of time which you don’t have very much of.
Which test should be used for a 1 month old using thickener for reflux? We are having issues with teats getting blocked.
