Price: $16 list
Pros: Durable, wide neck and nipple base, helpful "let-down" effect, great transition bottle
Cons: Hard to read markings, hair and lint stick to outside
Bottom line: A fun, durable choice, worth the splurge to give baby a mommy-like experience.
Comotomo won our Editors' Choice award baby bottles. It offers a cutting edge look and feel that caught our attention right away with it's squeezable silicone base and extra wide mouth and nipple, all in one little ball-shaped package! We love that both nipple and bottle are made of soft silicone, designed to mimic mother's skin and give baby a close-to-breastfeeding experience. It landed at number three in our testing giving us a leak-free, comfortable experience.

BabyGearLab Editors' Hands-on Review
The soft, squeezable, bulbed design of the Comotomo bottle is designed to mimic mommy, and we think it does a darn good job. By gently squeezing the bottle you can provide baby with a real-life "let-down" (and we mean that in a good way!) experience, which makes this bottle a great option for the breast-to-bottle transition. Made without BPA, PVC or phthalate materials, it scores better than most in our eco-friendly comparisons.
Comotomo scores big when it comes to durability and simplicity. They claim an anti-colic valve but with none of the extra parts such as in our much lower scoring but similar feeling Adiri Natural Nurser Ultimate.
Washing was simple with its basic parts and extra wide mouth. We weren't left wondering if it was "sealed" when screwing on the lid. This bottle was leak-free for us in both feeding and travel and it seems virtually indestructible.
The textured silicone feel does lend itself to collecting hair and lint more readily than a smooth plastic would. This made the outside a little harder to clean but we see this as a minor complaint. The material is also frosted and the measure marks just don't stand out very clearly. Although we like the health aspect and features the silicone base brings to the table, the aforementioned problems did drop Comotomo's ease-of-use and cleaning scores slightly, causing it to come in just under our overall point score winner, the Tommee Tippee Closer to Nature.
Another thing we noticed that isn't ideal, is that it's rounded shape might be prone to tipping over. This would mainly be a problem if it happened while being filled.
This bottle comes with a hefty price tag but it's a great product, especially if you're struggling to get your baby to take a bottle. Boasting a clean, modern look mixed with what we feel to be some A+ technology, we say, go ahead and splurge on this one! Winner of our Editors' Choice award.
