~ Tesco Standard Neck Bottles ~
I have to admit to have a little bit of a baby bottle obsession, it has been with me since I had my first child eleven years ago now and with each child I have had it has steadly gotten worse!
My little one is now 11 months old and has quite a hefty range of bottles from Avent and Tommee Tippee to Poundland bottles, amongst the collection I have two sets of three Tesco Standard Neck baby bottles.
I bought the first set when my son was still quite small, probably about three months old and this set had three bottles, two blue and one yellow. These bottles are clear BPA free bottles with blue/yellow rings and lids, the teats are silicon. The first set had cheerful little characters on the front, two having a little lion surrounded with stars and the other a jolly giraffe in orange surrounded with stars.
The second set was the same colourwise, with there being two blue and one yellow however the pictures on the bottles were different and are covered with a nice scattering of cute ladybirds.
The bottles have been used quite a lot as my son favours this style of bottle to the more chunkier bottles as he finds them easier to use, the bottle are long and slim and have a nice curve in the middle making it nicer to hold and easier to grip.
They hold 250ml or 9oz of liquid and the measurements are placed down the one side of the bottle, rather than being printed on the numbers are raised so there is no worry that they may rub/wash off over time and with use.
I have found them to be a good quality, strong bottle that have withstood a fair bit of throwing! The round bottle ring is easy enough to screw on and off and the lid fits snugly for when you want the teat covered.
There have never been any issues with these bottles and they have fitted into my Avent electric steriliser with no problems at all, however they failed to fit in my Nuby microwave steriliser whilst on holidays, I just boiled them instead.
They are easy enough to clean with a bottle brush and some hot soapy water and come clean with little effort.
The pictures have shown no signs of fading and are still nice and bright.
They are usually priced at £1.97 for three but are currently included in a Tesco Price Drop bringing them down to just £1.31 until 22/07/2012.
Like I have said I have them in blue and yellow, but they do have them available in pink and purple too.
They come packaged in a simple plastic shrink wrap so there is no unnecessary packaging, just the right amount to keep the bottles together on the shelf!
Thanks for reading :o) x
When pregnant with my 1st child, I was amazed at the number of different types of baby bottle you could buy. I ended up with a mixture of wide neck, anti-colic and Avent, but also bought myself a pack of standard neck Tesco bottles.
The design of the Tesco standard bottles vary, but at the time (as I didn't know the sex of my baby) I opted for the plain ones, which were transparent bottles with white lids and discs.
The bottles have markings up to nine ounces, although I found that they will take 11 ounces (if you measure 2 ounces carefully into another bottle and then add it). I found this out as I had a very hungry baby!
The markings on the side of the bottle are in fluid ounces and mililitres. The markings are clear and even after over a year of use they showed no signs of fading.
The bottles come with standard teats provided. I found the teats to be of good quality and they also lasted over a year without any signs of wear or cracking.
If you did want to use different teats with these bottles, such as variflow/fast-flow or newborn, the bottles fit most standard size teats. The only ones I found that wouldn't fit were Avent as they have a slightly different rim around the edge.
The bottles are easy to separate for cleaning and they fitted perfectly into my Tommee Tippee electric steam steriliser - I could easily put six of these bottles in there at once and still have room for dummies and accessories - this is a definite advantage over the wide neck bottles, which are a more bulky and awkward shape.
Most importantly, my baby loved these bottles. She much preferred them to any of the more expensive or gimmicky ones that we tried and she never suffered from colic.
I'm pretty sure I paid around £4.99 for six of these bottles and it was definitely money well spent.
When pregnant with my 2nd child, I automatically bought another pack of these bottles and she also fed happily from them.
I am currently trying to get my daughter to stop drinking out of bottles so much, but still needed some at night as she had chewed through the teat on her others. So off to Tesco I went hoping to find some cheap ones.
I came across this pack of three bottles for £1.97. I bought the girl version of 2 pink capped bottles and 1 purple capped one. The boys version is basically the same but in blue and yellow.
They come in see through shrink wrap so there is not a lot of packaging.
They can hold up to 9oz, I think the detailing on them is really nice and girlie, the pink bottles have a little pink elephant and flowers with the words 'little cutie' and the purple is the same apart from it being a little purple hippo and purple flowers.
I believe the teats are medium flow one and are thin, but I find the work perfectly fine and my daughter has had no problems with them at all.
Washing them is easy and most bottle brushes fit in them well although some I have to gently force them in there!! I have found that the pattern does seem to come off after a few washes, but this doesn't affect them working in any way. Another problem is that the teats and bottles do take on a funny colour and start to smell when using cow's milk and have to be replaced after a little while, buy I did expect this.
The lids go on and fit ok but sometimes come off and I have found puddles in the bottom of my changing bag a few times where the lid hasn't clicked on properly , but I don't generally have a problem.
Overall I think these are very cute bottles and work well for the price I paid.
