Okay so yes within the past few weeks we purchased all of these to try with our two-month-old breastfed baby. Short version: every baby is different and Lansinoh won for ours.

But here's some additional comparison points on all of these to help others decide and maybe avoid buying so many :)

Background: our baby is now 2-months old, but we started trying bottles around 6 weeks. I stay home, so the goal for us is just occasional bottle feeding so I can have a little time away.

Munchkin Latch: this is the bottle system we used with our now 2-year-old and he adapted to it well from around 6-weeks old. It's easy to clean, interchangeable with sippy cup parts, and has an adapter for direct pumping. Problem is our new baby just cried whenever we tried putting this bottle in his mouth, so we started looking at other bottles...

Comotomo: super easy to clean with just your hands, looks awesome, feels nice and soft. Our baby was able to latch on to the large nipple surface, however, the nipple itself is very long and he seemed to be struggling with this. He drank from it the first time we tried, but wasn't HAPPY and was squirming and joking a bit. The nipple is also very slippery, unlike some of the others with a matte finish, and the super wide bottle makes it difficult to fit most bottle warmers (didn't fit our boon orb or Intel-a-temp). Lastly, no breast pump attachments.

MAM: this nipple looks completely different from comotomo so I thought it'd be worth a try. Our baby wouldn't even drink from this one unfortunately- he just cried and made a face like "what's this foreign object in my mouth" :( Also, I didn't like the complexity of the bottle - there's a bottom cap, a bottom rubbery insert valve, and then the nipple, nipple ring and cap. And the bottle just looks unattractive in my opinion compared to competitors - not that it would've mattered if he liked this one :)

Breastflow: our baby drank an entire 3oz the first time we used this, WITH a smile, and fell asleep after. I thought this would be the one! But the next two days he refused in and just chewed on the stiff inner nipple. The outer nipple on this one is very thin and fully collapsed when he drank from it. And milk gets stuck between the two nipple prices and you have to squeeze it just right to get it to go back down into the bottle where your baby can drink it or you can save it. (A feature that's a little complicated to show a baby sitter, etc) Honestly the double nipple seems to be a waste because it only slows the flow for your baby's FIRST suck - after that, milk goes into the outer nipple and comes out just as easily as any other bottle. The idea is to simulate the natural let-down of breast milk, but it only added a 1 second delay.

Adiri: so we never got to use this one because our baby loved Lansinoh. But I did provide a picture of the nipple and wanted to mention that the nipple had a wonderful soft, matte finish that seems would be easier for baby to latch too. It also looks the coolest of all the bottles. Downside it had a lot of parts to keep track of and clean.

Lansinoh **THE WINNER**: our baby instantly latched with this bottle and it just felt "right". He's drank from this easily with mom, when sleepy and fussy, with dad, etc - some of our key test times, and it past. The bottle design is wonderfully simple and the nipple has a very nice feel - it's very thick, but soft and partially matte finished. I love that I can direct pump with the very affordable Lansinoh manual pump (comes with a free bottle too), and the design is super simple and easy to clean. The air vent for this one is in the nipple, just like Comotomo, which is great because there's no worries about leaks from a bottom plug, etc. But my ONLY complaint is 1) the air valve can sometimes make a loud noise which I worry will startle the baby (so far he hasn't seems to notice it) and 2) it only comes in purple.

I have prematurely-born 2 month old twin boys who have acid reflux, colic, and are poor feeders due to poor sucking reflexes. After weeks in the NICU on tube feeds, they were inconsistent with bottle feedings (and combined breastfeeding) and had distended abdomens, crying bouts, spitting and occasional vomiting.
We tried:
-Dr. Browns - the twins did not like the narrower nipple, but I think they did have less gas with Dr. Browns bottle. However, the cleaning drove me nuts with Q2-3 hrs feedings x 2 bottles each time (some days 24 feedings per day!). I was constantly taking them apart and cleaning them with a pipe cleaner then the dishwasher then putting them together. Plus more than 60 cc it may leak more (it even says on instructions).
-Avent - liked the blue and white cute bottles to differentiate for twin A and B and easy to heat in the Avent bottle warmer, however 14 of the 20 slow flow size 0 nipples cracked with dishwasher and Avent sterilizer uses and the milk would spray over the babies' faces and cause wailing. We inspected the nipples and were shocked (contacted Avent with photos). Also, the babies don't usually perfectly latch on every feed, usually a lot of wiping milk off their faces and leaking around their mouths. The other annoying thing was having the line up the vents on the nipple to the white mark on the ring every time before sterilizing them. We wanted to stay with Avent but it wasn't working well enough. Otherwise, the bottles are a good size, easy to wash, well priced and heat quickly.
-MAM (energetic prints!) bottles were definitely great with less gas and less burping, however a few times per week at night the bottle or the top of bottle would leak majorly (pouring formula or breastmilk onto the babies' clothes). Plus, I had to heat the formula or breast milk in a different container (usually Avent bottles with Nene caps) then pour it into MAM. We got tired of disassembling/assembling the parts (same complaint for Dr. Browns) and not being able to heat the bottles in the warmer without leaking water when we pulled them out of the warmer and the occasional milk/formula leaking that ruined the pajama and the bed. I didn't feel as confident at 2 am/4am feedings and would triple check the MAM bottles. The babies also didn't always latch on perfectly, they love the MAM pacifiers but didn't always want to drink from the MAM bottles.
-Comotomo - After a while I decided to try Comotomo. It had the advantage of Avent bottles that I could pre-measure and store sets of ready bottles with formula or breast milk in the fridge and I dropped them into the Avent warmer and heated them (yes, it fits! It leans over but it works! SEE PHOTO HOW THE COMOTOMO BOTTLE FITS INTO THE AVENT BOTTLE WARMER! It takes maybe 1-2 minutes longer). CT bottles had less gas than Avent bottles, plus, no leaks from the bottle and rarely any leaks from around the babies' mouths. They both seem to like the nipple a lot as they took to drinking from it immediately. Over and over they would drink happily every feeding and not leak around the milk and have less burping or hiccups afterwards. I still breastfeed daily 1-2x with each twin, but they switch from BF to the bottle and back without issues. I was pleasantly surprised. Because I needed 2 bottles per feeding for my baby boy twins, I ordered BPA-free stickers to label the bottles (instead of the blue vs white bottles we used to use). (I cut out the animal parts of the stickers and decorated half the green bottles for 1 twin to differentiate whose bottle it is as they drink different amounts). Why don't they make Comotomo bottles with another gender neutral color like white or yellow or orange (only pink is available aside from green)?? We also like that it isnt plastic touching the formula or milk (silicone - but glass would be great). Did I also mention that now at 3 months they both love to touch and grab and hold the CT bottles?

I am in no way associated with any of the bottle manufacturers, and would have preferred the least expensive and most convenient option, but 1) easy cleaning/washing 2) easy heating esp at night 3) less gas and colic 4) easier latch / feeding, less spit ups were priorities.

I usually don't put much thought into product reviews, but this one deserves a round of applause 👏 Comotomo saved the day for us! Mom had to leave the house all day for it to work, but it worked!! The pic shows all the other bottles we tried...the booby baby struggle is VERY REAL! The silicone body that allows us to squeeze the milk into her mouth is what sold us to try the product to begin with. We used it to get the milk started and now she actually sucks on the bottle. It took 15 weeks of fighting her with other bottles. So, Comotomo we'll take 5 more please 🤗

I really really love this bottle. I have a fully breastfed and lip/tongue-tied baby who I wanted to make sure would take a bottle while I work and instead of trying a bunch of different bottles, I asked around about breast-shaped bottles for breastfed babies and the Comotomo was the most suggested. My baby took it no problem from the first time! I know all babies are different but I love the soft plastic body and the slightly harder plastic nipple that acts just like a breast. It helps with gas which is usually a huge problem with lip and tongue tied babies, but not with this bottle!

I recommend it and if you are looking for a bottle for the same reasons, I would give this one a try! I really love it.

Best baby bottle ever! I originally bought these for my son because he was breastfed and I didn't want him to get used to an artificial nipple with fast flow. This bottle has a nipple that is shaped like the breast and feels like a breast so my son had no problem using it. Note that if you get the 5 oz bottle it comes with a slow flow nipple and the 8 oz comes with a fast flow nipple. I didn't know this and was surprised when my son drink the 8 oz bottle in just a few minutes! They say breastfed babies should stick with a slow flow nipple so that was my only complaint . Other than that I love this bottle...doesnt leak and the BEST thing about this bottle is the anti colic system. It is better than any bottle I have ever tried. Usually you have to take the bottle out of babies mouth to let the air bubbles come out ..but you don't have to lift a finger with this bottle. NO air will ever get in, so you don't have to take the bottle out of babies mouth during the entire feeding. Great for colicky babies and babies with reflux. Ive tried many anti colic bottles and they all still get air bubbles..this is the only one that doesnt. Worth every penny.

Our baby refused to drink from a bottle right as I had to go back to work after maternity leave. We struggled for awhile, it was so frustrating, I was so worried about returning to work and my baby starving and crying the whole time. We tried different bottles including kiinde bags and nipples, spectra bottles and etc... nothing helped. I did research online and settled on the comotomo bottles. I bought the small one first. We had a little trouble with it, baby was accepting it 50% of the time at first, but we kept at it and after 2-3 days it started working. Within a week or two our problems were forgotten and this has become our favorite bottle. I ended up getting a larger 8 oz bottle and we have been using these bottles constantly for 4 months now. These bottles were so natural for our baby, she started holding the smaller bottle at 4 months. I also got the handles for these which work great as well. I also got faster nipples as baby got older. The only issue I have with this bottle is the lids don't fit well, they are hard to snap in place, but other than that it's easy to clean and convenient to handle.

This bottle has been amazing for our two month old. No nipple confusion - she goes back and forth between bottle and nursing with ease. It is so easy to clean since you don't need a bottle brush. The *only* issue I've come accross is if I don't screw on the cap enough, it will leak. It has happened twice, both times have been my mistake. So happy with these bottles and I will be ordering more. NOTE: I have two 5 oz bottles which come with slow flow nipples and purchased an 8 oz bottle along with 2 slow flow nipples. The 8 oz bottles come with medium (2 hole) flow.

Absolutely love this product! I breastfed exclusively for 4 months and decided to introduce the bottle to my baby in preparation of going back to work. Needless to say, he refused any and all bottles. We tried five different types and nothing! He would cry for hours and eventually fall asleep, but would not eat until I was available to feed him. The pediatrician recommended cup feeding. After some research, I came across the como tomo. To my pleasant surprise, it was available on amazon prime, so I decided to give it one last shot before cup feeding permanently (nothing wrong with cup feeding, but for our family it took way too much time and would make it very difficult for our caregiver). My son didn't take to it immediately, but I stuck with the plan of letting him bite it a bit and play around with it in his mouth when he wasn't too hungry so that he can familiarize himself with it. After letting him play with it a couple of times, he would suck on it for a few seconds here and there but grew frustrated. Since he was trying to suck, I figured that perhaps the flow of the slow flow nipple wasn't working. The milk literally shoots out of my breasts, so I just put two and two together. I ordered the meium flow and like magic he latched and finished and entire 4 oz without a hitch! The silicone is so much softer than any other bottle I've tried (this is my second baby. My first wasn't able to breastfeed so I bottle fed her. In all, I've bought about a dozen different bottles/nipples). The soft bottle also mimics the breast and the width of the nipple makes it much more comfortable for breastfed babies to latch. The air vents work well in letting the air out. My baby is now a happy breastmilk with occasional formula supplement fed baby! The only con about this bottle is that we can't shake the formula inside it without it leaking a little around the ring.

My 2 month old slowly decreased his feeding amount from 4oz down to 2.5 oz. I though something was wrong with him bc of another health related issue and didn't think it was the bottle we were using then (Flipsi). But I discovered that after feeding him 2.5oz with the Flipsi, he would still nurse for 5-10mins. I order Comotomo because of all the great reviews. I love that it is silicone, easy to clean and the nipple is soft and the base of the nipple is rounded like a real breast would be. Although these are the same reasons I ordered the Flipsi, once I compared the two nipples, there were minor, yet major differences.

I know this isn't a comparison review between the two brands, but I've learned that just because two items look the same, doesn't mean it is the same. The Comotomo nipple is very soft yet firm to the touch. It is super easy to clean, heat up, measure, hold in your hand, balanced out perfectly, and I can go on and on!

The valve on the nipple actually works really well too! My 2month old went from taking 30mins to finish 3oz to just under 10mins! One easy burp and the feeding cycle is done. More time to play and get things done around the house =)

My breastfeed son has been using these bottles since he was 2 1/2 months old. He recently turned 7 months, and we have had no problems with these bottles whatsoever. The wide shape makes it easy to clean and offers a better grip my LO's hands. Highly recommend to all the breastfeeding mamitas out there!
