The First Years GumDrop GentleVent Bottle Review (TOMY)

The First Years GumDrop GentleVent Bottle
What It Is

The First Years GumDrop GentleVent Bottle is a new bottle system that is designed to help reduce colic symptoms by reducing air being drawn through the milk. This features the same nipple shape as the GumDrop pacifier, which is used in hospitals nationwide. The wide nipple base is shaped to help support transitioning your baby from breast to bottle. This BPA-free bottle also features a leak-proof collar and a wide neck to make it easy to fill. The bottle's unique bottom vent is easy to clean, and the whole thing is dishwasher-safe.

Why Is It Useful?

We found the silicone on the nipple to be not as soft as others at the same price point. We also thought that the size of the nipple was too big and not very flexible, which might make it hard for baby to latch on. The bottle itself is very large and is probably best for older babies, ages 10 months and up. Overall, at this price point, this bottle is certainly worth a try if you have a colicky baby. The bottles are cute and colorful.

Who It’s For

These bottles are recommended for ages 3 months and up.
