Top Rated Baby Bottles for Baby Shower Gifts

Every mom has been in that situation were their baby has colic or nursing issues with latching on to a nipple. Some moms can't continue breastfeeding for one reason or another and need to transition their baby to a bottle. It is super tough being a mom when it comes to your baby's need with food. 

Some babies don't like the feel of certain bottle nipples, have a issue with their suckling instincts, or have really bad gas issues from gulping air through their bottles. I know as a mom of two boys, I have been up countless sleepless nights comforting my baby. Struggling to get them to eat or to slow down to prevent gas in their little tummies. It is hard work feeding a baby!!!!!!!

So here are the TOP FIVE bottles for feeding your baby. Some I have personally used with my boys and others I have researched or had friends/relatives that have used them. Hopefully one works best for you!


1. Avent is my go to bottle that I used for feeding both my boys. I absolutely loved the whole bottle line! What was nice too is they transition the nipples into sippy cups, so your kid just gradually goes from bottle to more independence. 

New to this whole baby’s-wailing-and-I-can’t-find-his-bottle-top thing? Try the Avent Infant Starter Set. It’s BPA-free and super easy to assemble, so you won’t waste any time trying to figure out which parts connect to where.



2.  Playtex is a pretty popular and huge company. They are also a very common Baby Shower Gifts for loved ones expecting. I used these bottles periodically when my boys would stay at someone's house or go to school twice a week. They were definitely more sanitary during visiting and travel. Plus you can have your baby formula powder measured out and ready to go; just add water and shake! 

We don’t know a breastfeeding mom who hasn’t stressed using a bottle at daycare (hey, it’s hard!), but Playtex Nursers with Liners are pediatrician-recommended to mimic your breastfeeding movements. The drop-in liners keep air out and NaturaLatch slow-flow nipples are included, so even though it’s not mom, it’s pretty close.


3.  I have never personally used this brand of bottle. However, a close friend of mine loved them for her daughter who suffered from colic. She swears by them and highly recommends them! 

Here’s why moms are raving about the natural flow bottles from Dr. Brown’s: a two-piece internal vent keeps air out, it’s vacuum-free and comes with a slow-flow nipple. So if you’re dealing with a colicky baby, we say give these a try.


4.  I am not familiar with this brand, but I have heard good things about it. For breastfeeding moms, finding a bottle that baby will take as easily as the breast is usually more headache than it’s worth. But Medela’s wide base and slow-flow style makes pumping and storing a breeze (phew!).


5. I love that they brought back a classic glass bottle. It is thick enough glass to prevent baby from getting hurt, no harmful chemical can leech into its surface, and it is also dishwasher safe!!!!!

This tried-and-true classic is great for breastfeeding and bottle-feeding moms because it puts baby in total control. Yep, you read that right! He controls how fast he sucks and how much milk comes up. The best part? It’s dishwasher safe. (Score!)



Any Mom-To-Be would be ecstatic to receive this bottle sets as a Baby shower gift! If I could do it all over again, I think I would have tried the Born Free glass bottles. They idea of them just appeals to me : )
