27 Mar 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.
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
