Tommee Tippee Closer to Nature has made supplementing much easier!

 I just received dreaded news, I was told we have to supplement with my baby boy! Despite doing everything in my power I am just not making enough milk to support a significant gain with him. After a day of tears I realized that I had to do what I have to do to have a healthy baby, so supplementing it is. I was terrified about nipple confusion though, and soooo incredibly happy that I happen to have Tommee Tippee Closer to Nature Bottle on hand for review!! This neat little bottle is shaped more like the breast so my little dude can easily go from nipple to bottle and never get confused or forget how to properly latch! I am so thankful for the Tommee Tippee bottles so that so that we can share our special breastfeeding moments, even though I now have to offer formula and supplement!

Supplementing was not the happiest decision I have ever made, but Tommee Tippee has made it much easier because we have no problems with his latch!
  • Nipple mimics natural feel, flex and movement of breastfeeding
  • Allows for easy transition between breast and bottle
  • Wide neck nipple for easier latch on
  • Anti-colic, anti-gas, advanced easi-vent™ valve
  • BPA & Phthalate Free
  • Graduations in mls and ounces
  • Hygiene Cap seals the nipple for travel
If you are faced with the decision like mine, I hope you consider Tommee Tippee! It will definitely make supplementing easier! 



  1. It was really hard for me to find the perfect supplement bottle too! I just wanted one so I could get a night out with the husband and not worry. Thanks for the info on this one! :)

  2. I'm blessed that we only had to supplement when I worked-which was two 12 hour days/month.

  3. I both nurse and pump, and I absolutely love Tommee Tippee bottles! They are the closest thing I found to the real thing. I think it stinks that society has made moms feel bad when they supplement. At the end of the day, you are feeding your child and providing nutrients and that makes for a GREAT mom!

  4. Where did you get this bottle? Our first is still on the way and I'm hoping to breastfeed exclusively, however, both mom and mother in law have been sharing stories of supplemental feedings, refusing to nurse, and not switching back after bottles. Nice to know there are options out there for new moms who want to try and stick with bf
