Where should the Easi-Vent valve be when feeding my baby?
We recommend the valve be at the top, near your baby's nose.
Can I put bottle and nipples in the dishwasher?
Yes, our bottles and nipples are dishwasher safe. We advise you place bottles and nipples on the top shelf. Also, try not to put baby bottles and nipples in the dishwasher with dark colored food as the color from this food can transfer. We also advise that you sterilize the bottles and nipples in a Closer to Nature Sterilizer.
Do tommee tippee bottles contain BPA?
Our best-selling, award-winning Closer to Nature range is now BPA free, with all bottles in the range now 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 Easi-Vent nipples on Sensitive Tummy bottles?
No the Closer to Nature Easi-Vent nipples have an air valve which will prevent the Sensitive Tummy bottle system from working properly. You should only use Sensitive Tummy nipples with Sensitive Tummy bottles.
