I started out with the Avent teats and bottles, much like many others. Unfortunately, it's claims of reducing colic, etc. didn't work for my son, and luckily, someone recommended Pigeon to us -- haven't looked back since! The brand has been around for ages and has proven to be reliable (my mum swears by it!), and I'm happy to say that it still delivers on that quality today.
Inexpensive; reduced the frequency and severity of wind-related problems with my little boy
Not widely available -- you'd normally need to go to a pharmacy/chemist to find it, unlike other brands that are available even in the local supermarket.
Excellent, the peristaltic teats were recommended by maternitiy hosp for mums who are combining breast and bottle feeds. Easy to clean and steralise, just remember to squeeze water through the teat to clean properly. Very versatile, you can mix and match with pigeon magmag tops as they grow older.
Great. I used them when my baby was a newborn along with breast feeding for both expressed milk and formula due to low supply. Baby feed happily either way. Used the S (small, low flow) teats for nearly 6 months to encourage a strong suck for breastfe...
After using Avent bottles I switched to this one and never looked back. I only had one at first and washed it after every feed and reused it again and again. There was very little spillage out the side of the mouth, and the y shaped nipple gave a good flow, allowing baby to increase flow of milk if super hungry. Highly recommended
Good, easy to hold shape bottle. Fantastic shape nipple, I found it to be the most natural. Also easy to clean.
The airflow valve failed on several occasions, causing the teat to collapse into the bottle. Can be difficult to find in shops
I love these bottles. My son has a tounge tie and these are one of the 2 brands of bottle that he finds it easiest to latch on to, the other is TT Closer to Nature. I have had no problems fitting then into any of my other branded feeding equipment. I find hem extremely easy to put together, have had no leakage problems. Wide neck makes them easy to clean. I like the fact that they come in both 200ml and 300ml sizes. I would not hesitate to recommend these bottles to anyone.
- Wide Neck
- Large Silicone Teat
- Measures on side are easy to read

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.
