“The Lion & Lady Feeding Bottle is such a clever idea and has also been so very well executed. Being stainless steel, not only is this bottle non-toxic and durable, but heat is transferred quickly through the material and so the contents will warm in 10 seconds and there is no need for a microwave! You simply add 40ml of hot water to the lid and slide the bottle inside! Not only is this portable, but it also ensures that the wonderful antibodies and prebiotics etc. in the milk maintain their potency.
Other features I love about this bottle are its wide mouth which enables easy cleaning and that the bottle accommodates most teats. This means that the bottle can grow with your child and convert to a sippy cup or a puree/snack pot. (The snack pot does require an additional lid to be purchased which will be available soon.) The only areas for improvement are that the lid on this bottle can be a bit tricky to pull off and the inside of the lid has a 60ml mark, rather than a 40 ml mark, so you have to guess how much hot water to add. (If you overestimate this, you will end up with hot water running out as the bottle is pushed down.)
This bottle is easy for little hands to hold and every aspect of it feels high quality. Highly recommended.”
“I just love the love the look of these bottles and that they are made from stainless steel. They come in three fun colours and have a wide top making it easy to clean. The cap can double as a measuring or snack cup. I changed the bottle teat with an after market sippy one for my 8 month old to use as a water bottle. He loves it as he can hold it himself and I love the fact that if he drops it, it will not break.

“These are clever bottles and have actually been really useful during my one-year-old’s first-ever few days of childcare. What I love is that the stainless steel keeps my expressed breast milk cool during transit between home and daycare. Now this is the clever part: to warm the milk, you can pour 40ml of boiling water into the lid (although the directions say 40 ml and measurements on the lid start at 60ml which is strange?), then you place the bottle in the lid for 10 seconds and voila, it’s ready for bub to drink. Such easy instructions to pass onto his carer! The size of the bottle is perfect for him to grip onto and feed himself, and the flow of the teat is good. The wide neck is also great for cleaning.
The major drawback for me is that the outer lid can be quite temperamental to remove and on a couple of occasions I’ve accidentally pulled off the teat at the same time as the lid, spilling precious expressed milk onto the counter. And out of the three bottles I’ve been sent, I can’t remove the lid from one at all. Other than that, this bottle is potentially the perfect bottle for travel and daycare. I’d give it a 10 if it weren’t for my issues with the lid!”
“Such an innovative idea, this baby’s bottle grows with the child. The bottle can be used later on as a snack box, made from stainless steel that is highly durable. Lion & Lady baby’s bottles are sustainable, eco-friendly & most importantly they are non-toxic so they won’t leach undesirable chemicals into baby’s milk & drink. The design is chic & available in navy, fuchsia pink or mint blue, perfect for boys & girls. It is also quick to heat, the stainless steel canister is perfect for heating the milk gently without using a microwave.”
“Really enjoyed using these bottles, they did get very hot very quickly even with warm water – made it hard to hold himself. Also would’ve liked to see measurements for water.”
