Perfect for breastfed babies
This bottle is a life saver as a mother of three, With my first baby, I had so much trouble to get him into bottle feeding. Tried so many types of bottles no luck. Finally found Pigeon wide neck. It’s amazing as it uses same technique for breast feeding. No mess, no fuss. Loved it and of course used it again with my other 2 children still a success to transfer from breastfeeding to bottle.
Only bottle my colicky/refluxy 7 week old would take to!
I never write reviews but I had to once I tried this bottle on my 7 week old son.
Since birth he had issues with mild colic and reflux. He wasn’t breastfed as my milk didn’t come through. I have tried avent, tomee tippee ultra, mam anti-colic. All which had a terrible seal, would leak or the flow was way too fast.
After every feed my poor boy would scream and throw up most of the bottle. Wouldn’t take day naps as he would wake every 5-10minutes to vomit.
I noticed a difference in the first feed! The flow was perfect! Unlike the mam bottles...
Perfect for Mix feeding
We have been mix feeding breast and bottle since 2 weeks.
We have had no issues with nipple confusion. We love out pidgeon wide neck bottles.
The wide neck gives a similar latch as breastfeeding which helps eliminate nipple confusion.
These bottles Are more expensive than some other brands but well worth the money.
Finally a bottle my baby would take
After 3 weeks of trying different bottles and a baby screaming in protest at each one I was desperate and emotionally exhausted. This bottle was immediately accepted by my 6 week old baby without a fuss. Absolutely recommend this product especially for breastfed babies who struggle with transitioning to bottle.
Bottle and breastfeeding is possible
I didn't plan on doing a lot of bottle feeding with my baby, just one a day or night for my husband to experience it as well. But as things didn't go to plan I ended up doing more bottle feeding than anticipated.
The bottles have been excellent. My baby will still go on the breast even with multiple feeds from a bottle. I was concerened he wouldn't do both and only want the bottle once he got on it but nope, happy with either.
I also found he was A LOT less gassy after a bottle feed and would settle for his nap easier than he would after brea...
My baby was exclusively breastfeed and at 4.5 months I decided to start bottle feeding him. He didn't take to any of the bottles I had including the Tommee Tippee brand, he would just play around with the teats in his mouth and then eventually cry. He also never liked a pacifier. When trying to feed baby using my Pigeon Mag Mag sippy cup with the teat top, baby didn't reject it straight away like he did with the bottles and my husband commented that the teat looks similar to a mother's nipple. So I searched the Pigeon website to see what bottle...s and teats they had and saw that this one is designed similar to a mother's nipple and are of good quality silicone. Bought it the next day and tried it with baby. He didn't reject it and after a few tries he started drinking!!! I cannot recommend this bottle highly enough, it is worth every cent!
perfect and worth it
I bought avent bottles because it is widely commercialized but when I fed using avent my baby choked every time and nipple drips fastly. Then I switched to pigeon & my baby loved it. The nipple is the softest and made of silicone, it only drips when my baby sucked, shape mimics natural nipple so I had no problem mixing breast and bottle feeding. Even if it is expensive, it is durable that I could still use it for my next baby.
Pricy but highly recommend this one
Bub was struggling to feed and was almost gagging with the Avent bottles we decided to give this brand a go. Extremely happy with the bottle and the wide neck teat. The quality of the plastic is high grade which makes these bottles expensive but it is worth every penny!
Only 4/5 because of price.
I can't believe why I waited so long to try these bottles. Bub is mainly breast fed but I would give her ebm from time to time. I used Avent Natural bottles and the teats collapse and she would have milk dribbling from the sides of her mouth. The Pigeon wide neck teat fits the Avent Natural bottle a bit loosely but will not move once it is screwed in place. Only complaint is that it is expensive.
After not being able to breastfeed for more then 4 weeks due to lack of supply my midwife suggested that I was to put my baby on formula as she was losing weight. I started off with the avent classic and She seemed to go alright on these bottles and same with the closer to nature bottles but she made a clicking sound every time she fed and was taking 40 minutes to drink 100mls. We Tried the pigeon bottles and haven't looked back. My baby now finishes her bottles in 15 minutes 20 minutes max. The only bad thing about the bottle is that you have to buy the teats separate so it ends up being costly but definitely worth it.
Wonderful teats, work perfectly with Avent bottles
My son had trouble latching onto Avent teats so after spending a bit of time on Google, I decided to give the Pigeon PP Wide Necks a try. What a difference it made! Baby latches easily and effectively each time. He now completes an entire 150ml feed instead of giving up after 60-70ml. Expensive at full price, I managed to get them on sale at the Chemist Warehouse. They've been worth every penny for us.
Great stuff for my baby
My bub used tomee tippee before but seems like she just play with the teats and drink no more than 50 ml. I tried to buy this pigeon, she likes it. So soft, no spill out from her mouth ,no rejection so far, no play with the teats. Will keep continue to using it to my bub
Worked perfectly with my breastfed baby!
I used this product with my breastfed baby from 3 weeks old. It worked perfectly. He had no problem taking the bottle and there has been no interference with breastfeeding. I express for my husband to give a bottle a day. Based on my experience I would recommend this product.
No bottle rejection so far
This is the only bottle my breastfed son appears to take well if I get it into his mouth correctly and far enough.... otherwise he'll just chew it. Have tried other brands/styles of teats to no avail. This teat gets his lips flanged out and is soft enough for him to suck.
The perfect bottle
I'm so glad I read these reviews and changed to using these bottles when my son was 8 weeks old. I was using closer to nature bottles previously and they leaked all over place and the they would do this weird sucking in thing. Baby got colic as a result. I went and bought the pigeon wide neck bottle and teats and he took to them immediately. Absolutely no leaks from the side of the mouth, no sucking in and no air intake. We love them!!! Have been using everyday for the past 12 months and will never use another brand again. Easily accessible in most shops, cheap, easy to clean and last forever. I've had no problems at all with them. No issues with the numbers fading. Thank you pigeon for a great product.
Best baby bottles
After trying almost every single bottle on the market theses are by far the best! Baby can latch and suck on it straight away and even when he was breastfed as well he took to the teat easily with no confusion absolute lifesavers at 3am when your baby doesn't want to take a bottle which we experienced with other brands.
Great for breast fed babies
I bought these bottles for my first child after he rejected pretty much every bottle. He was breastfed and hated bottles, but he managed to drink a little bit from the pigeon ones most days. Was the most successful. Kept them for next baby, and she took to them no problem, along with breastfeeding. She started to get fussy with the bottle, so tried mimijumi, nuk, avent, tommee tippee, spectra, but this is the one she ended up coming back to. Good quality bottles and teats. No leaking.
These bottles are perfect. My daughter refused Avent, Closer to Nature, Medela and Mimijumi bottles so I had nothing to lose by trying these bottles. My daughter took to them immediately thank godness!
They are relatively cheap when they are on sale at Chemist Warehouse.
The only issue I have is that they don't have storage lids/caps like the Medela bottles. I like to be able to store the milk (without the teat) for a day or so
Works a dream for us
In the new born nursery my child couldn't hold the flow of milk from a normal bottle. They told use to go peristaltic nipple. Pigeon are the only brand that makes this kind of nipple in Australia. Got home and purchased 6 small bottles with 0+ month peristaltic nipple. Worked great until they didn't house enough volume for his increased feed needs. Tried another brand if larger I was given as a gift - leaked. Nipple quality was Horrible!
Only caveats -
They are expensive. The way they sell smaller bottles with 0+ month teets. And large b...ottles with 3+ month teets is deceptive and makes you need to purchase bottles twice. Don't by the small bottles as you will just need to get rid of them in 3 months time. Purchase the larger bottles from the get go and 0+ month peristaltic nipples separately in 1 go. Then you only need to purchase 1 round of bottles as your child grows.
The only bottle/teat my baby likes
After trying many different bottles and teats, this was the one that my breastfed baby liked. I put it down to the shape and design of the teat. The bottles and teats are easy to clean and sterilise. Also have not had any problems with leaks. Only con is that it is slightly more expensive than the other bottles on the market.
Questions & Answers
How do I get the bottle to release the air consistently? I keep having to pull the bottle out of my babies mouth to let air in and I don’t have the lid too tight. She gets frustrated each time the pressure builds up and it’s making feeding extremely stressful
Which Wide neck soft touch teat is best for use with thickener? I find it gets stuck in some tests. The thickener states medium flow but I’m not sure which Pigeon Teat that would be. Thanks for your help.
