These bottles fit both the manual and electric Medela pumps.
They are useful for storing both expressed breast milk and formula milk left over from a feed.
We bought extra bottles so that we could store additional expressed milk in the fridge without having to transfer it into storage bags.
They don’t take up too much space either.
Really useful product.
Easy to store milk in, not too big for taking in nappy bag or putting in fridge/freezer
Small bottle neck, difficult to clean

These are really useful small bottles, very hand for storing breast milk in as you can take it directly from the pump put a lid on and fridge/freeze as necessary without needed to decant and waste a little milk in doing so! My only complaint is that the necks are very small so don’t fit other teats and difficult to fit bottle brushes down unless you have a small one!
As a mother who wasn’t going to breastfeed I ended up giving it a go and actually I am now sad to think of when it may end. So once I established breastfeeding I bought myself a medela swing pump so my husband could help with the feeds. The pump came with two of these bottles which for me, wasn’t enough, so I bought some more.
These bottles are brilliant! They don’t leak at all, the middle of the lid can be popped out to add a teat to feed baby and they attach straight to the pump!
I opted not to use the calma teats that can be used with these and used another bottle but it’s a brilliant concept. Just be aware that the bottles don’t come with teats and must be purchased separately.
These little bottles are honestly great, I pumped large quantities of milk and often needed more than one bottle to pump into so having these to hand is great and means I didn’t keep wasting breastmilk bags if I wasn’t going to freeze my milk. The fact they don’t leak is great toon even if I accidentally drop the bottle. I did this with another brand and lost 6oz of milk which is horrific to anyone who breastfeeds, because the lids didn’t seal shut. So yes, massive thumbs up!
The only thing I will say is I think they should come in packs of four as opposed to three, it just seems odd to have an odd number and I could’ve done with another bottle but that’s really my only gripe and it’s tiny.
Overall I think if you’re purchasing this in addition to your medela pump you can’t go wrong as they just attach straight on. If you’re looking for breastmilk storage for another pump then these are the best ones I’ve tried and you won’t be disappointed.
These bottles look and feel great when feeding baby. However, I found the lids to be quite fiddly to use due to them having what can only be described as a tiddly-wink inside?! I don’t know what this was there for? I used with the calma teat which was really good however, found that this could hold some droplets of water after sterilising as worried that this would burn baby.
We love these bottles, we went for Medela as the matched my breast pump. They are a really lovely size and shape and perfect for a tiny baby. The only downside is that on both of our larger bottles the measurements have rubbed off the side, they have been used in exactly the same way as the others but seem to have worn very differently?
I have the medela breast pump which comes with one of these amazon bottles. I was exclusively breastfeeding my baby boy and made the decision to lump in between. However my baby wouldn’t drink from a bottle which caused a lot of problems. So when my pump came and one of these medela bottles was part of it my son took the milk for this bottle very easily as it’s very much mimics the nipple. I was so pleased that very moment I was straight onto Amazon ordering another 4 to 5 bottles. I have since recommended this to a friend that has also got a baby who is struggling to take a bottle after being breastfed . Cannot praise this bottle is a laugh and would recommend them and have recommended them to family and friends with babies or expected nothing. cannot praise this bottle is a laugh and would recommend them and have recommended them to family and friends with babies or expected
although I don't breast feed any longer we still use the bottles for formula. my lg started to hold those bottles on her own when she was 3.5 months old ;) bottles are very handy and easy to take out. doesnt leak at all and save space in back back.
These bottles came to me along with my breast pump which I had hired. They are so amazing,they fit almost every standard pump. The top is well made and easy to wash. Not sure that they could be microwave sterilized or not but I wish they could. I sterilized them using the Milton solution. They don’t leak at all! Which is the best part. Love these bottles and would continue purchasing these for my other children
I’m a big fan of the Medela’s products and these bottles are one of the reasons why I kept buying them.
They usually have a special teat called Calma that’s why are one of my favourite products. They are so very practical for milk storage and breast pump that I couldn’t get enough.
I never had a problem with it and cleaning them is very easy.
These bottles have been great for collecting and storing pumped milk in. I like the two different sizes; preferring the smaller bottle to use when pumping. The lids can be a little tricky but they are secure once on. They have done the job I wanted them to do!
These are good if you want to attach the teats but for use as milk pump and storage bottles the lids are really fiddly as they have 2 parts.
Also we dropped a bottle once and the lid broke in half so they aren’t very durable.
