Tommee Tippee Closer to Nature Complete Feeding Set: Product Overview

If you are expecting a baby soon, you would have to get your house in order, including buying nappies, bottles (if you want to bottle feed breast milk or formula milk), steriliser, sleepsuits, car seat, pram etc. Not only is the cost of essence but also making sure you buy it in time before the baby is born. Not to forget the quality and the durability. I have put down a few points together from my own research on the Tommee Tippee Closer to Nature Complete Feeding Set with a view that this would help you make a decision whether to buy it or not.

The Set Includes:

1 x Closer to Nature electric steam steriliser

4 x Closer to Nature 260ml/9floz feeding bottles with slow flow teats

4 x Closer to Nature 150ml/5floz feeding bottles with slow flow teats

1 x Closer to Nature electric bottle warmer

6 x Closer to Nature milk powder dispenser

2 x Closer to Nature insulated bottle bags

2 x Closer to Nature medium flow teats

1 x Closer to Nature 0-6m soother

1 x Closer to Nature bottle brush

1 x Teat tongs

1 x instruction leaflet

Pros

Brand

Tommee Tippee is a well known branded name. It’s products are known for its quality.

All in 1 set

For the first six months, this set is all you will need in terms of feeding your child (other than the Formula powder or breast milk).

Great Value, good Quality

The set is of good quality and you get a lot of items for nearly £70.00 (reduced by £90) which is a good value for money.

Steriliser 

Steriliser is quick and sterilises the bottles in 5 minutes but you can sterilise only 5 bottles at a time. Bottles will remain sterilised for 24 hours, provided the lid remains closed which means that you can switch on the steriliser at bedtime and use the bottles next morning. The steriliser is easy to use and easy to clean due to its unique design.

The new sleek design saves space in your kitchen

BPA Free

All bottles are BPA Free.

Slow flow and medium flow teats

2 types of teats included- one slow flow (0-6 months) and other medium flow (6+ months)

Bottle Warmer

Handy thing to have, especially in the night if the milk is not warm enough, you just have to pop the bottle in the warmer for a couple of minutes. Do not use the warmer for warming up old or stale milk- as it is advisable to always give freshly made milk to the baby. Remember to add water to the warmer before use – please refer to the instruction leaflet.

Insulated bag

The milk will stay warmer in the insulated bag for 30-40 minutes depending on how warm it was when it was placed in the bag. It is recommended that you put hot water in the bottle and add the formula only when you need it. The milk will stay fresher!

Cons

Check all the items

If you buy the set, do check all the items to ensure nothing is broken especially the steriliser. Some people have mentioned in their feedback that some items like the steriliser was found broken or it wasn’t working. You should be able to exchange it under the 12 month warranty.

Steriliser

Some people have experienced that the steriliser packed up within few days of use. Or at times it would leak water on to the kitchen worktop. Again, if you face these problems you are covered under the 12 month warranty.

Teats

For some babies the teats are too big. Therefore they might not be able to put the bottle in their mouth properly and this might result in a lot of milk spilling. You cannot put teats of other brands on Tommee Tippee bottles.

Unnecessary items

In my opinion, couple of things are unnecessary like the teat tongs (you would not have the time to use that if your baby is crying for milk) and the soother (I never gave any soother or dummies to my children). I believe that soothers or dummies are unnecessary for babies. They do not know these things exist so why give them? If they are upset and crying then there would be a reason for it. It’s better to resolve that issue than to give a soother.

If you decide to buy the Tommee Tippee Complete Feeding Set, weigh in mind all the pros and cons and buy it only if you need it. If you decide to breastfeed directly from the breast, you would not need any of these items. However it is recommended that you do take a couple of bottles with you to the hospital at the time of the birth and use the bottles if there is any delay in your baby latching on to the breast.

  1. Hello, thank you for this very useful article.

    When we had our first child it was almost panic mode with what to get and what not to get. A review like this is very helpful.

    It’s so important to have all the relevant components too, rather than buying things individually.

    Will defo check this out when we plan our next one.

    Thank you.

    1. Thanks for your comment Zulfaqar. I was in a panic too when I had my first child . If you buy things individually it might prove to be more expensive than buying a set. On the other when you buy a set, you might get those items too which you might not need !

  2. I love that this set comes with a sterilizer and a bottle warmer! It seems like a lot of sets don’t have these and then you have to buy them separately. I like that everything is all in one.

    When you’re a new parent, it’s so hard to figure out what to get and what not to get, and I like that everything is included here so you don’t need to worry about it.

    I know that some things may not be necessary, but better to have too much than too little! Especially in the middle of the night!

    1. Thank you Christina. I didn’t know what a bottle warmer was until my relative suggested using it . With a set everything comes together so you don’t have to worry that you have missed buying an item!

  3. I actually had not heard of this item, but it is definitely something to consider. It really depends upon which items you personally feel you need or will use. But it is nice to find a pack with everything all together!

  4. Thank you, Priya,

    I wish I had that set many years ago for my daughter and now I sure that young parents will benefit completely with the Tommee Tippee Closer to Nature.

    That is a lot of items and a sterilizer that a very nice set and great useful information for new parents

    I watch new parents today and they don’t know how important it is to keep the babies bottle sterilized.

    Great article and review I like this product seem so handle for a husband it makes it convenient if everything is in order. When he go get the bottle ready.

    That the husband or father role to go get the babies bottle what else are we men good for in that role?

    Once again great job I’ve really enjoyed myself,

    Carl
    .

    1. Thanks Carl. If you have the whole set, you won’t need anything else. Especially if the husband or the Dad is getting the bottle ready, it’s best if everything is ready and in place:) . This will be a huge help to the mother as well !

  5. I loved this set when my youngest was born. The only issue is when they get older and you want to get replacement bottles, they only sell new bottles with a 0+ teat and you need to buy new bottles and then new tops too! With that being said… you might not let your kids get as foolishly attached to their bottles and need replacements! Anyway, great set for newborns

    1. Thanks Carolyn. I was advised by the nurse to get the child off the bottles at the age of 1 and put them on beakers instead.If you leave it any later , it will be very hard to get them off the bottles.

  6. Well explained article…as me and my partner are planning for our first child, it is extremely useful information to know on a product like this.
