Olababy GentleBottle Review

When I heard about the new Olababy GentleBottle, I was excited to try it. And even though the bottle is for babies who are 0-3 months old, I decided to give it a whirl with my 9 month old.

The company was kind enough to send us an 8 ounce (240ml) Slow Flow bottle in the Mint color. The bottle itself is adorable. The body of the bottle is soft and squishy since it is made of medical-grade silicone, and the nipple is a very unique shape. The off-center nipple mimics the positioning of the baby’s mouth while breast/chestfeeding more than any bottle I have seen. The nipple is also larger than most bottles.

My baby is mostly bottle fed at this point, so I had no problem getting him to take the bottle. It felt good in my hand and was easy for him to grip as well. flabby gentlebottle

The flow was as expected for a slow flow nipple. (Since my kiddo is older than the recommended age for the GentleBottle, it was a little slow for him. This isn’t a negative, just an observation.)

Overall, I think this is a great product. At $11.95 per bottle, it is on the higher end of the price spectrum, but it is a worthwhile investment for families seeking specific qualities in baby bottles.

Takeaways after trying the Olababy GentleBottle:

  • Perfect first bottle for the exclusively breastfed/chestfed baby
  • Great for the family who only uses bottles occasionally
  • Flow truly mimics the flow of feeding directly at the breast/chest ,which should minimaize flow confusion
  • Higher price point worthwhile for unique features

Special thanks to Olababy for letting us try this cool new product! They are available for purchase here.
