~ Tesco Wide Neck Bottles ~
As I have said in a previous review, I have a thing for bottles. I buy my son loads of different ones for no other reason than I thought they looked cute!
So here I am reviewing Tesco Wide Neck Bottles.
My son has quite a large selection of bottles, in fact his collection fills the bottom half of one of my cupboards which I know is quite ridiculous but there you go!
I have bought these particular bottles a few times but there first time I bought them my son refused to take them. It was a pure emergency the first time where I hadn't expected the car to break down and to be stuck waiting for help for two hours. So as my son was still quite little then he was feeding regularly, about every three hours, and as he had already had the bottle we had taken we needed to buy a carton of ready made formula milk and a bottle and as he was used to drinking from his Avent bottles these to me seemed a good, cheaper alternative.
I asked in the cafe for boiling water and managed to rinse a bottle out using this in some hope of sterilising it and filled it with the carton.
As it happened my son drank a little then simply refused to drink anymore and went to sleep. Shortly after we got home and he had his milk in a bottle he was used to, so these didn't get used until he was a little older and was then less fussy.
These bottles are nice to look at and to hold. They are chunky and short and hold 260ml of fluid. They are nice and bright and come in green and blue or pink and purple. They come in a pack of three and cost £4.59 but can also be found on offer for less than this in baby events and the like.
I have the blue and green set, which consists of two blue bottles and one green. The actual bottles are clear plastic with some sort of print on them. The rings and lids are coloured and again the teats are clear. The lids fit over the teats are click easily on top to keep the teat clean and germ free. The lid and ring have a waved edge so when they meet form a nice pattern.
They are BPA free with a silicon teat.
Another thing I like about these bottles compared to more expensive brands is that it is much cheaper to replace the teats. You can pick up a pack of three teats for around £1 - £1.50 from pretty much anywhere whereas the branded bottles need certain teats which of course cost more money.
My son loves these bottles now and can firmly hold them in his hands. They fit easily into my steam steriliser and I quite like them.
