“ Brand: Asda / Type: Bottles „
When my little girl was 6 months we went from breast feeding to introducing some follow on milk to her, so her introduction to a bottle was maybe a bit later than some. We tried so many bottles - Avent, MAM, Tommee Tippee, Dr Brown, and she never seemed happy with them. The teats were very rounded and the bottles were giving her colic. Then a friend said that she had exactly the same problem and she went from the very expensive bottles to cheap ones and hey presto, happy baby.
So I picked up a two pack of Asda Little Angels Wide Neck Bottles for £3.60. At that price I thought well, it's worth a try. I also went for a fast flow wide neck teat at an additional £2.40 for two as the breast milk flowed quite fast and I'd noticed her getting frustrated with the slow flow of even medium teats.
The combination of Asda Little Angels Wide Neck Bottles and wide fast flow teats was a winner!
The bottles are clear and hold up to 7oz of milk comfortably. They have different colour sets available - pink and purple for girls, and green and blue for boys but I did end up with a set of green and blue when they ran out, and they're so sweet that really, it doesn't matter. There is a pretty picture of circles on the sides and the measurements are embossed on the side not printed (probably for safety). The bottle has a coloured screw on 'hoop' to hold the teat, and a matching opaque lid. They look very nice, and they're very easy to clean, no niggly bits where milk gets stuck. You can wash them by hand, or put them in the dishwasher, and they fit in all types of steriliser (though I actually stopped sterilising around 9 months so my daughter could build up immunities).
The bottle is comfortable to hold when feeding baby, and comfortable for baby to grip onto and hold when they get old enough to, too. There's no bells and whistles - the design is simple, neat and it works well. She never had any colic or trouble using these and I will certainly be buying them again for my next child, over the course of a year the Asda Little Angels Wide Neck Bottles did eventually start to scratch and discolour in the dishwasher, but for the money I really can't complain at all, they lasted well, were great to use and made life so much easier. I will certainly recommend them with full marks and will be going to them first when I need bottles in the future. Please don't change the design, Asda, these are the best bottles bar none!
