CoddleLife Bottle Review

I was contacted by Frankie at CoddleLife before Nellie was even born. He asked if I was interested in reviewing one of their BPA-Free Propylene Bottles. At the time, I was gung-ho on the breastfeeding train and was confident I’d never need to use a bottle, EVER. But I said go ahead and send me one, if I ever need to use a bottle, yours will be the first I use.

Oh, how naive I was.

I ended up using the CoddleLife bottle within the first week of Nellie’s life when she wasn’t gaining weight from breastfeeding and I supplemented a little formula. I wanted her to keep from getting nipple confusion, and CoddleLife’s bottle is advertised to help to avoid that. In the beginning, the CoddleLife bottle was the ONLY bottle I would use to feed Nellie supplemented formula.

About CoddleLife’s BPA-Free Propylene Bottle

  • It features a Peristaltic Nipple. WTF is that, you ask? A Peristaltic Nipple basically means that it stretches in response to the natural movement of a baby’s tongue.
  • It has a textured lip base to stimulate baby’s senses.
  • It has a one-piece air venting system to help reduce colic, spit-up, and ear infection.
  • It is microwave, sterilizer, and dishwasher safe!
  • The bottle, collar, and cap are all 100% propylene and the nipple is 100% food grade silicone.

My Experience With the CoddleLife Bottle

As I mentioned, the CoddleLife was the only bottle I’d allow to touch Nellie’s lips while we were breastfeeding. To the bottle’s credit, she never had any sort of trouble switching from breast to bottle! She didn’t get the bottle often; only about an ounce of formula after every other feeding to get her little belly full. I really loved the soft feel of the nipple, and the unique air-venting system it had was great. The only two problems I had with it were the numbers on the side were sort of hard to read, and the air venting system tore after about 5 times using the bottle. I was cleaning it out and I noticed that it had torn. So, naturally, like any paranoid new mother I immediately stopped using it. I have this weird thing that if something of Nellie’s breaks, or causes her any pain or discomfort or anything like that I immediately want to throw it on the ground, burn it, pour salt over it for good measure, run it over with a truck and burn it again. I didn’t do this to my CoddleLife bottle; I simply just stopped using it after I discovered the tear.

I do have a few pics of Nellie using her CoddleLife:

I would definitely buy and use a CoddleLife bottle again. Even though the air-vent system tore easily, I may have just been a little over-zealous in my cleaning. A single CoddleLife bottle is moderately priced at $6.99 for a single 8 oz BPA-Free Propylene bottle, 3 for $18.99 and 6 for $35.99. They also offer glass bottles. You can buy from various stores, or directly online.
