Since we’ve tried three different bottles already, we decided to try out a different baby bottle in search for easier cleaning, so we picked up a 3-pack of Gerber First Essential baby bottles from Target. These bottles are pretty simple – only four pieces:
At $2.99 for a 3-pack they’re a pretty good deal. Or you can buy the individual bottle for $0.99. Here are some specs:
- There are vents on the nipple to help reduce air
- Available in 9oz & 5oz capacity
- Dishwasher safe
When lil man is drinking, you can hear the air vent working and see bubbles float away from the nipple in the bottle. The bottle has been pretty easy for him to hold onto. Washing the bottle is pretty simple – it’s only four pieces! If you’re using a baby bottle brush, it will fit into the bottle and clean all the corners & if your brush has the nipple cleaner extension it will fit right in and clean the nipple also.
The only issue we have with the bottle is a slight leak. Depending on how you screw on the ring, the bottle may or may not leak from the nipple area. When it does leak, we’ve found when we squeeze the bottle a little to let out some air before feeding the lil man, then “releasing” the bottle once he begins drinking helps prevent the leaking. At $0.99 a bottle, you can toss the nipple and buy a new bottle if you find one that leaks.
My hubs really loves these bottles for the price point and because they work properly.
