Disclosure: I received the Born Free Breeze Bottles by Summer Infant free of charge. All opinions are completely my own.
My little one has been one volcanic eruption after another since the day he as born. He arrived five weeks early and has some moderate latch issues. Breastfeeding has been difficult for us as a team but with the help of nipple shields, lanolin, breast pumps and bottles I have managed to keep my baby exclusively on breast milk for nearly six months. I only wish I had discovered the Born Free Breeze bottles by Summer Infant sooner.
Born Free bottles and nipples claim to feel ‘just like mom’. I don’t know how they gathered the information to make that claim but my son does prefer this bottle to others we have tried (and we have tried many). I think it has to do with the texture and overall shape of the nipple. The nipple itself is firmer than the rest of the silicone. Additionally, the top of the bottle is all one piece, nipple and ring combined. This makes clean up super easy and when it’s time to make a bottle I don’t have to hunt down three separate pieces.
Born Free bottles also claim to have an “Anti-Colic Design”. We never had to deal with colic and all the fussiness that ensures, but from the very first use I noticed that my baby spit up very little after he ate from these bottles. It is such a relief to feed him a bottle and know that most of it is going to stay down.
These bottles come in glass or plastic, both varieties are BPA free. Born Free Breeze offers four different nipple flow options. We got to try out the plastic bottles with both the medium flow nipple and the y-cut nipple. As he is currently transitioning to solid food I love to use the y-cut nipple when I mix a bit of rice cereal into his bottle of breast milk.
I love these bottles and I can’t think of a single thing I would change about them. They are high quality, beautifully designed, and the benefits to my baby are out of this world. You can purchase one for the baby in your life here. Way to go, Summer Infant!

I like the simplicity of these bottles. I’ve used Dr. Brown bottles as they help prevent colic but there are so many pieces and after a few months they all start leaking.
Dandi D says
Neither of my babies would ever take a bottle, so I glad they didn’t really need to, but this looks like a great product!

I Don’t Have Kids of My Own Unfortunately but My Sister Has a Baby & She Also Had Problems with Her Baby Latching On! I Will Have to Tell Her About this Bottle! It’s Amazing How Much of a Difference it Can Make Just Based Off of How the Bottle is Made! Thanks for Sharing & I Will Share this with My Sister! Have a Great Evening! – Jana
i would love to give these a try for my little one due soon. They look amazing.

Love the nipple shape!! I can see how they would be amazing for bf babies to transition to the bottle and back!!

Our first baby had so much trouble breastfeeding, too! We finally got it but I totally felt you when you said “with the help of nipple shields, lanolin, etc…”! We ultimately went with Dr. Brown’s but for our little one coming in January I may try these if we have trouble again (crossing our fingers that we don’t!) 🙂

I do like the contours of the bottle so it is easier for baby to hold while feeding.
Amy Hall says
I’d like to try these bottles, I’d only wonder about the speed of the flow of the nipple. A while back a few people tested out the flow rates of different bottles, there’s a lot of variance even among ones that say slow flow. The Joovy bottle nipple drowned my breastfed baby.

Wish I’d had something like this 40 years ago. Very handy.
I love the glass option! I’m also very impressed by anyone who pumps that long!
Kimberly Flickinger says
These sound like excellent bottles. I will definitely let my friend who is expecting know about these. Thank you for sharing.

i’ve been looking at these, but will go for glass.
They sort of look like glass bottles from the picture. My LO never took a bottle , but maybe my next one will!
These sound like a great bottle. I wish it was available when my teen was a baby…we could have used it!
Jill Roth says
I’ve heard amazing things about these bottles. I use the kiinde system so never actually use bottles otherwise these were my first choice.
Deborah D says
These bottles seem like they are perfect for the mother and baby who are having trouble breast feeding. I am teling my sis ter about these bottles.
I hadn’t heard of the breeze bottles. We had an awful time getting our LO to take a bottle – I wonder if this would have helped. In the end, it took me putting her in a bouncer on the kitchen floor, ceiling lights and exhaust fan on and I fed her from behind. She was a tricky one to figure out!

Wow I wish I had heard of these 10 months ago! My youngest is now 13 months and still nursing but when he was younger I tried to get him to take bottles some and he refused 90% of time. I wish I had been able to try these then.
Christina G. says
I love the look of these bottles. So cool. Thanks for sharing!
