For your peace of mind and their advanced comfort
Colic in infants may be caused by a combination of influences including ingesting air during feeding. The new advanced comfort range from Closer to Nature is specially designed to help reduce air bubbles in the milk and to encourage a good latch-on to help reduce the risk of baby ingesting air during feeding. The air vents down through the tube and into the air-space at the base of the bottle, completely bypassing the milk.
Designed To Help Reduce Air Ingestion
Closer to Nature advance comfort bottles provide optimum venting during feeding via a unique tube and valve system. They also help provide a continual feeding action via an easy-latch-on teat.
Breast Like Shape
The breast like shape of the Closer to Nature teat allows baby to latch on easily and further supports the transition between bottle and breast.
Flex and Stretch
Flex and stretch ripples allow the Closer to Nature teat to mimic the natural flex and movement of mums breast.
Designed to be held in the most natural position during feeding, the compact shape of Closer to Nature bottles allows baby to be closer to you.
For total reassurance, all of our products are free from Bisphenol A (BPA).
Can I put bottles and teats in the dishwasher?
Absolutely, our bottles and teats are dishwasher safe when placed on the top shelf. When using a dishwasher, be sure not to put baby bottles and teats in with strong coloured or oily food as the colour and residue from the food can transfer. We also advise that you sterilise the bottles and teats in Closer to Nature sterilisers after washing, before use.
Do Closer to Nature bottles contain BPA?
Were pleased to advise that our best-selling, award-winning Closer to Nature bottle range is in indeed BPA free, with all bottles in the range made in top quality polypropylene. This material is light to hold, easy to clean and gives great results but contains no Bisphenol A.
Can I use the microwave to heat up the bottle?
We strongly recommend that you do not heat milk in a microwave as this produces localised hot spots. You should also never boil breast milk as this destroys valuable nutrients in the milk. Try using our Closer to Nature Electric Bottle and Food warmer or our Travel Bottle Warmer instead. More detailed information about heating breast milk can also be found in our advice section.
Can I store milk in the bottles?
You can certainly store breast milk in your Closer to Nature bottle. We recommend storing the milk in the main section of your fridge (not in the fridge door as temperatures can vary) or your freezer. In both cases, be sure to use a sterilised air tight container (you will also need to use milk storage lids). Check out our advice section for more information about storing breast milk as well as storage times and other best practice tips.
