Hands-on Gear Review
Price: $13 List | $11.50 each (in 2-pack) from Amazon - 12% Off
Pros: Silicone, let down action, latch nipple
Cons: Unstable when standing, longer to warm
Bottom line: Unique silicone bottle that is simple & easy to use.
The Comotomo is a unique bottle like nothing else in this review. It is made entirely of silicone and ranked third in this review winning a Top Pick award for innovation. This bottle has a squeezable shape and breast like nipple and bottle shape. The opening is super wide for easy cleaning and milk transfer. The bottle is easy for mom and dad to use and for baby to drink from. This bottle is one with few downfalls and is one we would recommend to a friend who is looking for something a little different.

Analysis and Hands-on Test Findings
Comotomo bottles have a unique silicone body and a naturally shaped nipple with a wide mound for easier latching. The skin-like silicone material offers a better grip for smaller hands and provides a calm feeling similar to holding mother's breast. This bottle has a super wide mouth for easy cleaning by hand without a brush and is safe in the microwave, boiling water, dishwasher and sterilizer. The nipple and body are made of 100 % hygienic medical grade silicone with a dual anti-colic vent system so air goes in and only milk comes out. This vent reduces colic, spit up, burping, and gas. Comotomo bottles are designed to mimic actual breastfeeding for less bottle rejection.
Philips AVENT Natural Glass bottle is hard to thread than this one.
Other ease of use dislikes are minor, but include slower warming times due to the silicone material of the body, it can only be used with special bottle warmers designed for wide-mouth bottles, it is heavier than the plastic bottles (though still lighter than glass), and the markings are hard to read. The volume markings on this bottle while difficult to read, are etched into the silicone so cannot be washed or rubbed away over time like many of the plastic bottles we looked at.
While we prefer the silicone body over plastic for eco-health, we still like glass better for many reasons you can read about in our article on plastic in bottles and sippy cups. This bottle is made in Korea and we prefer those made in the USA or Europe.
