3-in-1 7oz Thermal Baby Bottle
Reviewed by Joanne Watson
Having 13 month old baby twins, I had two little ones to help me review this item! When it arrived, I was very impressed with it. It is a lovely looking item, and my first thought was, ‘Why didn’t I think of this!’ As a concept, it is a fabulous idea – a drink container that would be suitable from birth to 5, AND keep liquids warm or cold for up to 10 hours – the answer to most mother’s prayers!
On first glance it looks well made, strong and pretty, in shiny green stainless steel with cherries on it. Looking on the inside there is a handy scale so you can measure how much milk or water you are putting in to the bottle, and how much has been drunk.
My twins were instantly scrapping over who got to have it! I tried it first as a bottle as my children still have bottles morning and night. They were both able to drink from it with ease and the teat was secure. They hold their own bottles and could hold this easily independently. Later I tried it with the handles and the spout as a drinking cup for water (sold separately). Again, they both were able to drink from it easily, using the handles to tip it up, and the spout didn’t leak. I did however let them drink from it in their highchairs. As babies will, it was pushed to the floor, and when I picked it up, it has a small dent in it! I was really upset, as they clearly loved it, but within hours, had spoilt the lovely look of it. It also developed an internal rattle. When it dented something was possibly chipped inside, between the thermal layers. As babies will drop things, this product could be improved by having maybe two rubber bands around the top and bottom so it would have some cushioning and would be less likely to be dented.
As a tool for keeping drinks warm or cool, it works very well, and would be brilliant for when you need to feed your baby warm milk but are out and about. And in the summer it works very well for keeping drinks cool and will definitely be coming on holiday with us next week!
As a product I would give it 4/5 stars. If it had not dented so easily, I would have given it 5, but with some minor adjustments as suggested, it could be one of the best baby products on the market. The only problem is I now have to go out and buy another one as the twins love it so much, they really need one each!
