Advanced Anti- Colic Bottles
Find some answers to the most frequently asked questions about your Advanced Anti- Colic Bottles
All of our bottles except the 340ml version currently come with slow flow teats as standard, as they’re best for newborns and most parents generally stock up on bottles before baby arrives. Our 340ml bottle comes with a medium flow teat.
As your baby grows and can feed more quickly, you can buy faster flowing replacement teats.
We have medium flow teats, which most babies are ready for at around 3 months, and a fast flow teat which is best from around 6 months. The ages are only guides though – you know your baby better than anyone and will be able to tell when they’re ready for a faster flow.
Of course! Pop them on the top shelf though. As with all white and clear plastic things they can get a bit stained and yucky-looking in the dishwasher (blame that bolognese sauce or carrot soup you had last night). If they do get discoloured there’s nothing to worry about – they’re perfectly safe, they just don’t look as inviting!
No, you can’t use Closer to Nature teats on Advanced Anti-Colic bottles. Closer to Nature teats have a built-in air valve, and don’t work with our Advanced Anti Colic bottles. The valve in your Advanced Anti Colic bottles is situated inside the bottle, attached to the end of the venting tube and is shaped like a star. It’s important that you make sure you match the right teat to the right bottle.
Teats take quite a lot of hammering from little gums and teeth, so they need to be changed regularly. We recommend replacing teats every 2-months or at the first sign of any damage or weakness.
All Tommee Tippee bottles are BPA-free. They’re made of a plastic called polypropylene that’s lightweight, easy to clean, and completely safe. BPA – that’s (CH₃)₂C(C₆H₄OH)₂ for you science geeks – is a chemical that’s been used in some plastics since the 1960s and it’s believed to mess around with your hormones. It’s generally not good, so we don’t use it.
Placing the venting tube into boiling or hot liquid won’t damage it, but it may force liquid up the tube which can cause your bottle to leak when it’s assembled. The heat sensing strip on the side of the venting tube will naturally turn bright pink to warn that the liquid is too hot. We recommend following our ‘how to guide’ to make a feed.
Make sure that the venting tube is at room temperature before testing the temperature of the feed. Dip the tube for 10 seconds. If the heat sensing strip shows solid pink, then the feed may be too hot. Allow the feed to cool further before feeding your baby.
There’s no need to put the venting tube all the way in – simply dip the tube into the feed and remove it to see the colour of the heat sensing strip. About an inch into the feed should be all you need to test the temperature.
Always check the temperature of the feed before feeding your baby.
