MAM Hold Me - Bottle

Ever since I started weaning Clay, he's been showing much interest in water. Every time he drinks water from the baby milk bottle, he'll drink a lot in one go and then let out a big sigh, like it has really quenched his thirst and that he was very satisfied. And then he'll start to chew on the teat. Glad he doesn't do that to me!

The problem we have is that he always ended up soaking himself with water so we had to change his clothes.

MAM UK was kind enough to send me a Hold Me - Bottle to try, which should solve my problem.

About the product:
  • 270ml Bottle - £6.50
  • Pink or Blue with berries pattern
  • BPA Free
  • Spill free
  • Extra fast flow Silk Teat
  • Also includes soft spout
  • Removable easy to hold handles suitable for little hands
  • Won Mother & Baby Bronze award for Best Weaning product in 2010/11
  • 6 months +

My review:

This bottle is definitely the one we needed! Absolutely spill free even when I turned the bottle upside down and shaked it vigorously. We He chucked it on the floor and the floor stayed dry. The only time water came out was when Clay either sucked or chewed on the teat while the bottle was upside down.

The handle is great as well and Clay can hold the bottle on his own without help. The only thing to teach him now is how to lift the bottle up on his own so he can drink the water!

I like it that the bottle comes with a soft spout to slowly train him to drink instead of suck. The bottle will last twice as long than normal bottle that way and that is definitely value for money.
