Even if you aren't in the market for bottles for your little one, the best gift you can give your bestie is to level up their feeding game. We all know that if babies don't have a positive feeding experience, neither does mama, so the best thing she can do is make sure the bottles are the right one for her baby. They also have to be functional and something mama will actually want to use. We get it.
Ahead, we offer bottles for babies of all types: colic, formula-fed, gassy and little ones who just want to eat non-stop. We have you covered. Take a look:
Part of the struggle with bottle feeding is the constant burping and gas that follows from a good feeding session. But, these bottles are our saving grace. They are designed to reduce colic, gas and reflux. Which makes for a happier baby and mama. But the best thing about these bottles is that the vent is one piece, so you don't have to stress about washing (and even losing) multiple parts.
There's a good reason why Comotomo mama's coined the term "Breastfeeding in a Bottle" to describe these bottles. Each silicone bottle was created to mimic breastfeeding, with the goal of helping babies easily transition back and forth from nursing to bottle. You'll also find soft, skin-like silicone material to offer a soothing, calming touch and grip. It's also heat-resistant and safe for dishwashers, because who has time to hand wash every. single. bottle.
Recommended by 97% of parents and developed with pediatric feeding specialists, the balance + bottle has a naturally sloped nipple designed to support healthy bottle feeding without interfering with a mamas breastfeeding journey. Milk also flows at a slower rate for calm, gulp-free feeding. Genius!
This bottle is on the pricer end of bottle pricing, but if you're partial to glass bottles with parts made without PVC and hormone-disrupting BPA and BPS, you can easily justify the price. And don't stress about the glass breaking, the silicone cover surrounds the bottle base to protect the glass and make it easier for mamas and tiny hands to hold.

Translation: it easily converts from bottle to drinking cup to food jar. It's also free of BPA, BPS, phthalates and toxins so your baby it's truly only getting the nutrients it needs.
Nanobebe's silicone bottle is a great choice for mamas looking for one bottle to do many things. It comes with a stable base that won't tip over, a 360° triple vented non-collapsible nipple for the perfect latch and it's crafted with a mom-like softness which can easily meet the needs of a newborns through early toddlerhood.
The golden rule of dealing with a fussy baby is to keep feeding simple. If you're bottle feeding, do you want to minimize gas as much as possible. To do that, some babies like angled bottles. This Playtex bottle offers a slightly bent body to prevent air from filling the nipple, causing gas and colic. As a bonus, the wide shape silicone nipple encourages proper latching.
