Over 50 years of experience

We started making baby products to make life simpler for real families.

And we’ve never stopped!

95% of moms would recommend* our bottles, and our two best bottle feeding innovations (the most breast-like teat ever and extra-wide neck bottles) were both ideas that came from real moms.

*Based on 2021 study of 524 parents who use Tommee Tippee bottles.

Meet the family

The unique curved shape of our bottles makes it easy for you to hold your baby in the most natural position when they’re feeding – close to you.

 Whichever bottle you choose, we guarantee that they’re all BPA, BPS and phthalate-free for ultimate reassurance.

Take a look at the videos below to help you decide which bottle is best for you and your baby.

Our original breast-like bottle that’s shaped like a breast because babies prefer it that way. Transition from boob to bottle with less fuss from baby and less stress for you.

Less air, more smiles. Our Advanced Anti-Colic bottles take air out of milk and away from baby’s tummy using powerful anti-colic technology and a special venting system.

Designed with our famous breast-like nipple and made from durable borosilicate glass, our glass baby bottles are not only recyclable, they're also resistant to odours and stains.

Our silicone bottles are soft, squishy and comforting, allowing the warmth of the milk to be felt by baby as they feed. Breast-like and brilliant, they feel just like mum!

Boob-like and brilliant

All Tommee Tippee bottles have one thing in common...

...the most breast-like nipple ever.

Go with the flow

Wondering how many bottles and nipples you’ll need?

Newborn babies can feed anywhere between eight to 12 times in 24 hours, so you’ll need four to six bottles and nipples to get started with. You usually get nipples with your bottles, but it’s a good idea to have a few extra in case they get damaged or lost.

Our bottles come in a range of sizes that grow with your baby, and our baby bottle nipples have different flow rates too, so that milk baby’s milk can flow faster as they grow.
