When you feed your little bundle of joy in the clasp of your arms, the moment is very special. This moment was extremely special for me as well.

As a new parent, I also enjoyed holding and feeding my baby in cosy arms. Whether you are feeding your baby with a bottle or breastfeeding, this moment makes the bond stronger between you and your baby. 

But the next time you need to give them food, it might be difficult if they are not used to taking bottle-feeds.

However, if we are going to use baby feeding bottles, then we need to make sure that you buy the best baby feeding bottle in India.

While choosing the baby bottle we need to check if we need glass, plastic, silicone or a steel bottle. They must be lightweight so that they can be easily clasped into the baby’s tiny hands.

It must be lightweight, leakage proof, easily washable, must fit in our diaper bags, convenient for travelling and so on.

That’s why I am bringing this blog post to you to help you make the right choice, understand the different types of bottles, nipple sizes, advantages of bottle feeding, and of course review of 10 best baby feeding bottles in India.

If you are in a hurry and do not want to read the entire blog, here are my top 3 choices that I would recommend parents –

  1. My first choice of the best feeding bottle is Philips Avent Anti Colic Bottle 260ml (Twin Pack). This is the best glass bottle and since it is a twin pack it is very convenient to store the feed while the other is used for baby feeding.
  2. My second choice is the LuvLap Anti-Colic Slim / Regular Neck Essential Baby Feeding Bottle, 250ml (Pack of 2) which is BPA free plastic bottle. It is a budget friendly option for parents who are just beginning with the bottle feeding process and are not sure of buying a glass bottle yet.
  3. If you are looking for an environment friendly option and not looking for a glass bottle then go for the Speedex Grade 304 Stainless Steel Baby Feeding Bottle. This bottle is a perfect option to keep the babies feed hot or cold as per the requirement and is also dishwasher safe.

Types of Baby Feeding Bottles

There are different types of baby feeding bottles, here I have listed a few –

  • Glass Bottle: Before plastic baby feeding bottles were introduced, people used glass baby feeding bottles. You may be thinking why should you give a head-scratcher things like glass in your baby’s hand. But this glass feeding bottle has more unique features than ordinary glass. These glass baby feeding bottles are made from high durable tempered glass, easy to wash and sterilize. Even when my baby was 6 to 7 months old, I have also tried this baby feeding glass bottle.
  • Plastic Bottle: The plastic baby feeding bottle is made from hard plastic polypropylene. These baby feeding bottles are very common to be used by every parent. It’s easily available in the market and it’s very reasonable as well. However, look for a BPA free plastic bottle otherwise it may be be suitable to be used with boiling water while sterilizing the bottle (which makes it harder to clean), some types of plastics can affect the taste of your baby’s milk etc. All said and done, when my baby was just born, I was given plastic bottle nursing along with breastfeeding and it was good to use.
  • Silicone Bottle: If you are looking for the newest and trendy best baby feeding bottle, then you should go for a silicone bottle. It is made from silicone which is a soft and flexible material free from BPA, PVC, and Phthalate.

  • Stainless Steel Bottle: They are very strong and durable. Being made from stainless steel it is easy to wash and sterilize. Unlike plastic bottles, which may need to be replaced every few months, the steel feeding bottle is designed to last longer. However, they are expensive (though not as expensive as glass) and they also lack some of the features of other types like wide neck, are not transparent so we cannot see the contents etc.

Read on to see my reviews on some of the best baby feeding bottles including glass & stainless steel type bottles –

Things to Consider Before Buying Baby Feeding Bottles

The things to consider before buying the best baby bottle brand are given as

  • Banishing BPA: When I want to choose the best feeding bottle in India, I have to look at whether it’s BPA-free or not. Hence you should also consider buying those feeding bottles that don’t have any potentially harmful ingredients.
  • Nursing or Not: Next, you should consider whether you are nursing or not when buying the best feeding bottle. If you are already a breastfeeding mother, you should buy a feeding bottle that gives the accurate flow of milk. Hence, the flow of milk from your breast and bottle nipples should be equal.
  • The Faster the Flow: When I was selecting the best milk bottle for the baby, I looked at its flowing consistency.  You should buy that feeding bottle which gives the slow flow of milk because it will be the best for your baby. If the flow of milk is very fast, it might get stuck to your baby’s neck.
  • Growing with Baby: I had bought a pair of baby feeding bottles for my baby. This way I can change his bottle frequently so that he will remain hygienic and healthy. Also, it will keep growing with my baby. You should look for a set of feeding bottles to easily change in your baby’s early ages.

Bottle nipple sizes

  • Size-one nipples – have a tiny hole for babies from birth to six months old.
  • Size-two, -three, and -four nipples have a bigger hole and are ideal for older infants.

The best bottle nipple should make only a few droplets of milk fall out when you flip the bottle upside down and should stop after some time.

If you think the milk is gushing too quickly for your child, use a nipple with a smaller hole.

If you think your infant is sucking too hard, try a nipple with a larger hole.
