I got this bottle originally for the health aspects. It's polycarbonate-free and bisphenol-A free. And,while I'm all for breast feeding, I don't like to do it in public. When we were driving from Nashville to Oklahoma frequently, using a bottle helped make the trip go a little faster. I had used Avent with my first son and liked the functionality just fine, in fact, we still have hundreds (maybe slightly exaggerated). I tried them with my second son, and he absolutely refused...bit of a nightmare, really. I was all prepared for him to be as easy as my first son (I know, bad Momma). We tried it again, this time with Momma not in the house so he wouldn't think I could come to the rescue. Still didn't want the bottle, but gave in out of hunger. He did gag a few times (poor sweet thing).NOW, here's where the Adiri comes into play. The first time my husband tried it, I was right next to them and it still went really well. Our second time to use it was in the car on a trip to Tulsa (roughly an hour and a half). I sat in the back with him and fed him while he was in his car seat. It was amazing! He did so well with it. He didn't even leak out the sides of his mouth, which can be a problem with other bottles. It is very soft, which allows it to fit their mouth better, more naturally. The shape of the nipple is more like momma, too. Then there is the slight texture to the outside. Aside from it feeling like the real thing, I think this also helps with it not leaking out the sides of the mouth.I am having to return to work (praying that it's temporary), and am releived that we found a bottle that is so safe and so natural...that he'll take and not have issues when I nurse him morning and evening. The only downside I can see is that it would be harder to make the bottle in advance and heat it later. I pump and store the milk in bags (my favorite are the Lansinoh brand) so I can heat it up in seconds with really hot water and then pour it in the bottle.(For those of you who like to shop at brick-and-mortars, I know Lily Bee's carries them. Lily Bee's is the most amazing children's boutique. They have their site as well (www.lilybees.com), but will gladly take orders over the phone and ship to anywhere. The owner is their 99% of the time, and is so helpful...and surprisingly honest.)

Adiri Natural Nurser

Leak, leak, leak, leak,... it will leak at the nipple, it will leak at the cover. I read good and bad reviews. I thought I give it a try because I liked the design. I regret trying. I bought 10 bottles. All 10 bottles leaked. I made absolutely sure it was dry and tightly covered. The bottle needs to be upside down to read how much milk is in it. When it's upside down it will leak at the nipple. When you turn it back over all the milk that leaked from the nipple will now be all over the bottle when you remove the cap. Then it will leak at the cover, which is on the bottom of the bottle. One leaked so bad it drained a whole 60 ml of milk while just sitting on my counter. If you don't mind dealing with a fussy bottle and a fussy baby at every feeding then get it. Not worth the price. Surprised it won an award. But, then it is a innovative design award. Functionally it sucks more than my baby. Remember I tried 10 bottles and they all leaked. You may be purchasing the 11th bottle if I would have replaced the ones I bought if I replaced it. But after going through 10 bottles and experiencing all 10 leaking why even bother getting replacements.

Not a bad bottle, but didn't fool my baby into wanting to try it

By 

from USA

Comments about Adiri BPA Free Natural Nurser Ultimate Bottle:

This was a normal bottle, nothing better in my opinion. I bought it for a baby who would rather starve than use an actual bottle. I hoped it would trick him into thinking it was the real thing. But, the shape and feel did nothing different than the dozens of other bottles we tried unfortunately. It was slightly harder to hold since the bottle part was wider than normal bottles and the nipple part was so large.

Child's Comfort
Again, average with other bottles -- nothing better or worse.

Leak Prevention
We didn't experience too many leak problems. It might have leaked a tiny bit more than the normal ones since it was so soft.

Ease of Cleaning
The nipple part was a bit tougher to clean than traditional bottles since it was so soft, but not too difficult.

Keeps Air Out
Seemed to do a good job keeping the air out. With such a large amount of liquid in the nipple part, that helped.

Durability
Seemed to be on par with most normal bottles. We washed ours in the dishwasher and never had an degradation problems.

So breastlike that my breastfeed only baby would use it!

By 

from USA

Comments about Adiri BPA Free Natural Nurser Ultimate Bottle:

I really love these bottles. When my little one was 6 months old I got very sick and ended up being hospitalized. He had only ever been breast fed. My husband tried several different bottles and the baby would choke on all of them or be flooded by fast flow nipples. Finally someone gave us one and this bottle was the only one he would take. The nipple is shorter much more like a natural nipple and the area around the nipple is squishy like mama! My only issues with these bottles is that you fill it from the bottom and after repeated use the nipple leaks. But they do include a cover for when you are putting the milk into them.

Child's Comfort
This is the only bottle my baby would take.

Leak Prevention
If you don't have the cover on when you put the milk in it will leak after repeated use. Initially they don't leak.

Ease of Cleaning
These have a nice wide opening on the bottom so you can actually stick a rag or bottle brush inside to clean with ease.

Keeps Air Out
We never had an issue with these!

Durability
It was our only bottle for months and lasted until my milk supply was re-established after my illness.

Better in concept than in real life

By 

from Richmond, VA

Comments about Adiri BPA Free Natural Nurser Ultimate Bottle:

I picked up some of the Adiri Natural Nurser Stage 1 - White when the BPA scare occures and I was able to turn in my BPA bottles for non BPA bottles.  I was excited to get some of these because they seem like they would be very breast like adn that is important for me since I breastfeed the majority of the time.  My baby took to these bottles very well.  Actually he preferred these bottles to other bottles that we tried.  However, I didn't really like these bottles.  They leak.  They leak bad.  If you fill them the correct way, they leak from the nipple into the cover.  I could only pump a limited amount, so that was very wasteful.  If you had the cover off during feeding, but needed to set it down for a minute, it leaked out the bottom.  Very frustrating, but my baby ate out of them very well!  I will continue to use these if I have to, but they are really better in theory than that actually are in real life.****

Leak Prevention
These leaked quite a bit!

Love the design but unreliable

By 

from Papillion, NE

Comments about Adiri BPA Free Natural Nurser Ultimate Bottle:

My exclusively breast-fed son is picky when it comes to bottles. He only has to have a bottle occasionally but we still needed him to take a bottle! I read reviews on this bottle and decided to try it with him. He will drink out of it (which is a miracle!) but I have had problems with it leaking. No matter how carefully I screw on the lid (it's on the bottom), about half the time milk still leaks out. It takes me a long time to pump, so it's VERY frustrating to lose that precious milk! We will continue to use the bottle because it's one of the few he will take (he will also take BornFree bottles) but I'm not sure I would recommend another parent to buy it if their child will take another type of bottle.

It does have a "cool" look to it, although one dad saw me feeding with it and laughed because he said it looked too much like a boob! It also has a softer nipple to it than others we've tried.

The Adiri Natural Nurser is not for every newborn

By 

from University Place, WA

Comments about Adiri BPA Free Natural Nurser Ultimate Bottle:

I was intrigued to hear that there was a bottle out there that mimicked the mother's breast making the transition from bottle to breast easy.  Just looking at them I thought they were different from what was on the market.  So I bought some and hoped my baby would use them without a fuss.

I wanted to nurse but also knew there would be times that my baby would need to be fed out of a bottle.  The first time I tried this bottle with my daughter she wouldn't even latch on to the nipple. She acted like it was something totally foreign and she had no idea what to do with it.  I immediately tried a Dr. Brown's bottle (that we had) and she latched on to that right away.  I tried the Adiri a few more times since I had invested in them (they are pricey) and she always acted like it was something weird and NOT a bottle.  We've stuck with Dr. Brown's bottles and have been extremely pleased with them.  I'm sorry I wasted my money on the Adiri. I'm sure they will work for some people but they weren't a good match for us.

love, hate relationship

By 

from Moriarty, NM

Comments about Adiri BPA Free Natural Nurser Ultimate Bottle:

Our daughter was about 3 months old when we were on the hunt for a bottle. She is exclusivly breastfed and has never taken a bottle. We had gone through quite a few different brands with different nipple shapes and she would fight every one. We were just about to give up on the idea that she would ever take expressed milk in a bottle when a friend lent me her Adiri Natural Nurser Ultimate Bottle Stage 1 and insisted I try it. So I filled it up and tried. It was amazing! She latched right away! The secret that worked for my daughter is the shorter nipple. The other bottles we tried would gag her. So that is my love for this bottle. My hate is simple: the Adiri Natural Nurser Ultimate Bottle leaks like crazy! I think my daughter got about 2 of the 4 ounces of breast milk through the bottle. You have to poor the food in the bottom of the bottle, so I had he cap on the bottle and poured the milk in and it started leaking in the cap. So this bottle would be great if it would not leak so bad. ****

A must have for breastfeeding moms!

By 

from Brush Creek, TN

Comments about Adiri BPA Free Natural Nurser Ultimate Bottle:

I absolutely love this bottle!  I bought it for my third son in case breastfeeding didnt go so well.  Well, breastfeeding went great but then I had some medical issues and needed to go through some radiation so I had to stop breastfeeding very suddenly.  I was heartbroken that I would have to change him from breast to bottle so quickly instead of taking the time to slowly transition him.  But he took to the bottle extremely well and never had a problem.  The nipple feels a lot like the softness of the breast and he didn't have any trouble latching on.  I tried a couple other  bottles too but this one hit the mark.  He is now nine months old and I'm starting him on a sippy cup and he seems to be transistioning very well.  We used stage 1 bottles the whole time so nine months of use and they are still going strong.  We only bought three bottles and have not had to replace any of them.  If I were going to have more kids I would definately use these again!

Adiri is the perfect bottle for breastfed babies!

By 

from Lacey, WA

Comments about Adiri BPA Free Natural Nurser Ultimate Bottle:

I planned to exclusively breastfeed baby number 3. At about 5 months he went through a period of about 5 weeks where he refused the breast after a biting incident. That's when I discovered Adiri. I wanted a BPA free bottle that would allow him to easily go back to nursing. Adiri bottles are super soft and fuller than a standard bottle. Much more breast like. The warm milk makes the nurser warm too. Great for a baby who is used to warm skin contact. These are amazing! I used it a few other times til he was 12 months old. He only had to use the stage 1. Stage 2 was much too fast for a breastfed baby.

Nice product in the botle feed category

By 

from Phoenix, AZ

Comments about Adiri BPA Free Natural Nurser Ultimate Bottle:

 

But babies need to bond with other parents, or need to supplement meals with formula, or take a break from nursing, these bottles have been designed specifically to recreate the breast and nipple shape. 

...This design also helps to eliminate colic as the breast milk/formula is pressed to the top of the bottle, entering the nipple prior to feeding, thus eliminating much of the air that gets trapped in many name brand bottles. 

...These bottles can be washed in the top rack of the dishwasher, sterilized in a standard steamer, used in the microwave (although most bottle manufacturers and doctors recommend not warming bottles in the microwave due to "hot pockets,) and they can be boiled.   

...For friends or family that are planning on bottle and breast feeding, an infant with colic or need to share the feeding of you baby on a regular basis will appreciate the purchase of these bottles as a shower or baby gift.

The only bottle my baby would take!

By 

from Tremonton, UT

Comments about Adiri BPA Free Natural Nurser Ultimate Bottle:

After my three month maternity leave, I reluctantly went back to work. I had been sucessful at breastfeeding my daughter and I wanted to contiue. I had pumped my milk to have enough back up supply for when I started going back to work.

My first day back, I got a call from my parents who were babysitting my daugher. She would not take any of the bottles I had broght, and had been crying for hours. I got so frustrated and upset I ended up going home from work just to I could nurse my baby.

Later that night I got online to look at some other options for a more natural feeling bottle. I found the Adiri Natural Nurser, and after reading the wonderful reviews, I bought it that night! It was a little more expensive than normal bottles. But, I was impressed that it really looked more like a breast and nipple than any other bottle I had seen.

After it arrived in the mail we tried it out on our daugher. It was a miricle! She was taking it! I was so happy, this was just what I was looking for!
