This has made bottle feeding so easy! I can’t believe I ever lived without one before. The prep machine is something I recommend to all expectant parents now if they’re planning on formula feeding at all. This is so easy to use and makes feeding much easier and making bottles as and when you need them much easier!
I wanted to get one of these for my first baby 4 years ago but didn't, had a baby recently and finally got one... It is a life saver!! It was easy to set up, easy to up keep, and takes 2 minutes to make a perfect bottle of milk. You have to use the tommee tippee filters and change them every 2-3 months (the machine tells you when you need to change it) and they are slightly expensive but I think it's worth it.
I was gifted this as a present and I'm so glad I have this in my life. The ease and quickness is amazing and it automatically being the right temperature is great for a crying baby. Because as all mothers know trying to wait for a bottle to cool down and your baby crying for hunger can be long and stressful
Easy to use, easy to keep clean, makes life especially night feeds sooooooo much easier
Cartridge gets changed often and its somewhat pricey- would be fantastic if it would self dispense

This is by far the best product I have used! I cant imagine how i was coping prior to having a prep machine! Now bottles are easily made at the perfect temperature which means mummy can get extra rest!
Easy to keep clean, tells you when needs new filter, more water etc, makes bottles perfect temp

For the first few months I didn’t use my prep machine as was breastfeeding but my god it is a life saver when baby is on formula! Makes bottles the perfect temperature in less than a minute! So much easier than faffing around with a kettle then running it under cold water! Definitely worth the price I paid.
We purchased the Tommee Tippee machine 2 days after bringing our son home, after 2 days of having a baby screaming at you for milk whilst you’re quickly trying to cool the bottle under the tap makes you rethink feeding times! Once this arrived it truly was a life saver, as soon as I notice the baby stirring I can make up a bottle in a couple of minutes. It’s so easy to use and makes the bottles at the perfect temperature every time. The only down side is it can be a little noisy, however I just make sure I close the kitchen door not to wake my partner with all of the beeping.
When I had my daughter I had a emergency c section which meant I was unable to do a lot of things and one of them was running around doing bottles, so my partner set me up this machine and it was so much easier, the only downfall was that it only makes 4oz to start with and my new born only drank 2-3oz which meant I wasted a lot of milk.
I was unsure about this product at first as I had heard mixed reviews, but me and my partner love this product! It makes bottle time a lot easier we’ve tried doing it the ‘old fashion way’ as many call it and with a newborn we couldn’t always time exactly when she would want her bottle so it became very difficult to cool it down in time for her not to have a meltdown! With this machine the bottle is made within 4 minutes start to finish and just really easy to use! Can change how many ounces easily and daily maintenance is easy, some of the deeper cleaning can take time so make sure you know you don’t have to do a feed anytime soon. The one thing we didn’t like was how loud the machiene actually was it beeps after the hot shot and after the cold water and it’s fairly loud! To which it wouldn’t matter if your baby was awake whilst making the bottle but if your trying to get one ready in time for them it could possibly wake them. Overall I do love this product and couldn’t imagine myself without it now. Just make sure you read all the instructions properly and clean regularly!
It made the bottles very quickly.
We felt our bottles were quite foamy and our little one already had reflux so we went back to boiling the kettle.
It's an expensive way to save some time.
You have to buy and change the filters every so often and clean the machine out.
Also the water doesn't boil it goes to 70c so it's not killing bacteria that a kettle would unless you fill with cooled boiling water.
Fast and convenient way to make bottles. In summary you put the required scoops of formula into a bottle (no less than 4oz though) and the machine puts in a “hotshot” of water at 70degrees which will kill any bacteria. The system then fills the remainder of the bottle to body temperature.
If you accidentally press the button to many time’s you have to start again (easy to do when rushing)
I don’t know what the difference is between the day and night models (other than seeing the display in the dark?) so I don’t think it’s worth the extra cost.
In summary due to the sheer convenience I think this is a must have for anyone preparing formula feeds.
We were given this machine by a friendly couple highly recommended.
It has saved a lot of stress and hustle indeed especially on night feeds.
The only downside is that you can’t control temperature. I sometimes need to add a dash of kettle water to make milk warmer.
Brilliant product, as a first time mum I really would be lost without it. I heard mixed reviews at first but so glad I decided to get it. Makes night feeds in them first few weeks so much easier! I am lost without it and hate it when I’m out and about and have to use the traditional method! 10/10 product will certainly buy again if I have any more children.
As a first time mum I would highly recommend this product, when switching from breastfeeding to formula I was worried about the process of safely preparing formula, this product has taken that worry away and gets a ready to drink bottle in a few minutes (amazing for 3am feeds!) I find it easy to use and maintain and would recommend this to everyone
Wish there was a mini portable version so I could carry this when out and about. When my baby was having formula this was a life saver. We bought it just after 4 months of her being born. I did combo first then just formula and kettle business just took long. This was and is the best invention ever. I would always recommend this and live by this. Love it. No issues except cleaning takes a while. And I wish the filters were a bit cheaper.
Amazing time saving piece of equipment! Foolproof to use. Takes the worry out of making up bottles as I know each one has the right amount of formula and is served at a good temperature for my son.
Easy to clean and replace filters. The machine lets you know when it needs to be decalcified/have a new filter and there are easy to follow tutorials on YouTube as well as step by step instructions in the manual.
I love the fact that the bottles are made up so quickly as my baby gets impatient for his feeds very quickly when he’s hungry.
Every parent needs this bit of kit, it makes feeding a hungry/grizzly baby so much easier. You can have a bottle prepared in 2 mins rather than having to be super prepared with an already made/cooled bottle which is completely unrealistic with a new baby.
Easy and quick to make bottles for a hungry and impatient baby
The price but it's worth it

So glad I purchased this for my baby! So easy and quick to use and it's at the right temperature for my baby. I recommend this product to everyone who is having or has a baby! It is easy to clean as well and the instructions are easy to follow. I will use again if I was to have more children as this has been a godsend.
Best thing we ever got. Takes all the stress out of making, heating testing bottles. It does it all and is so easy to use.
Needs to start at 2oz not 4oz as newborns don't drink 4oz so it's a waste of milk. Maybe a wee sound proofing too.
This machine is amazing for new parents. I originally used it in the bedroom for night feeds as it makes the bottle fast and to the right temperature so when half asleep and baby is crying it makes everything easier. When my baby started sleeping through i moved it downstairs and i use it for all feeds now. The only downside is i think its a tad expensive for what it is consideing it isnt necessary either and the filter needs replacing often which is expensive as well
Bought one of these after Christmas and is by far one of the best products we have bought. Making bottles is so fast and simple. Great on night feeds when she wants a bottle there and then. So much faster than using the kettle.
