You thought that buying baby bottles would be easy…until you actually started looking and were confronted with hundreds of different brands, sizes and materials to choose from. Relax—we’ve done the hard work for you. Whether you plan on breastfeeding or formula-feeding, you’re going to want a bottle that doesn’t leak or smoosh the nipple (a technical term) and minimizes gas and spit-up. Here are the three best options on Amazon.

Editors' Pick: Comotomo

The Facts:

  • Super-wide neck design for effortless cleaning
  • Natural nipple shape and feel for easy grip
  • Dual vents prevent air bubbles and reduce colic

Parents love this bottle’s ultra-wide nipple base that makes for easy cleaning, while babies love the soft and squeezable silicone feel (you know, kind of like mom’s skin). The dual vent system means minimal vacuum buildup to help reduce burping, gas and even colic. Phil, PureWow’s SVP of Finance, raves about them. He says, “Our son took to the Comotomo bottle really easily and was feeding himself with it at six months. We also liked that it only had three parts (unlike many other bottles), which makes it super easy to clean—no bottle brush necessary. We’re coming up to the one-year mark and even after hundreds of washes, our bottles are still in great shape.” Made from 100 percent safe silicone (and no phthalates, lead, BPA or latex), these bottles are dishwasher-, microwave- and sterilizer-safe.

Most Popular: Dr. Brown’s Baby Bottle

The Facts:

  • Clinically proven to prevent gas and reduce colic
  • Available in plastic or glass
  • Microwave and dishwasher safe

When it comes to baby bottles that are anti-colic and anti-gas, this parent favorite is the OG (Dr. Brown has been making bottles since 1996). Created by a pediatrician, the patented venting system on this BPA-free plastic bottle is designed to prevent air bubbles (which the baby, in turn, swallows) and to mimic the feel of breastfeeding. This clever feature reduces burping, gas and spit-up, hence its reputation as the best bottle for warding off colic (a recent study also showed it was better at preserving nutrients). The only downside is that the high-tech venting system means that there are a few more parts to clean and you’ll need a special brush from the brand to get into some of the tiny crevices. Not into plastic? Dr. Brown makes glass bottles, too. Microwave- and dishwasher-safe.

Best Value: Medela Baby Bottle

The Facts:

  • Compatible with all Medela breast pumps
  • Leak-free
  • Easy-to-read measurements

If convenience is what you’re after, then this one’s the baby bottle for you. For those with a Medela breast pump, this BPA-free plastic bottle lets you pump, store and feed with one container (bottles are compatible with all Medela breast pumps). Parents also love that the bottles are leak-free and come with easy-to-read measurements. Senior editor Rachel had the Medela breast pump, so she stocked up on these bottles before her son was born—and she’s glad she did. “My sister is an NICU nurse and emphasized the simplicity of the brand and our baby took to it easily and right away. The slow-flow nipple worked great and it was easy to warm and clean—it was our go-to for his entire first year.”
