BPA-free with an anti-colic value and nipple-like teat, the angled Chicco Evolution bottle is definitely worthy of your attention. However, it may not fit your pre-existing bottle cleaning and carrying kit.

The Chicco Evolution bottle is made from an extra durable amber-coloured plastic Polyethersulfone (PES), and is BPA-free. It features a ‘Physiological Teat’, which flexes and extends to twice its length during sucking like a real nipple. The Evolution is available in a cutting edge tilted design (30-degree angle) that ensures there’s always milk in the teat. This is said to allow you to easily keep your baby’s neck in the correction position while feeding, minimising colic and hiccups.

The Chicco Evolution bottle comes in a 250ml size only and costs £6.99 for the conventional design and £7.99 for the angled bottle.

What we love

As my baby Joe is now nearly 9 months old – and has been taking a bottle since 4 weeks – I thought we’d pretty much seen every type of baby feeding bottle out there but the angled design of the Evolution bottle is definitely a new one for us.

I’m now at the stage where I’m introducing beakers and encouraging Joe to hold the bottle himself where possible and the design of this bottle really helped with that.

Although Joe will take the bottle from me he struggles to lift it to the right angle and I worry that he’s taking in air so end up taking over. With the Chicco Evolution bottle I was able to let him get on with it – still in my arms but drinking more independently than usual because the angled design always ensures there’s enough milk in the teat. He seemed really comfortable with the design, which has indents for holding on to and it seemed to minimise any straining around the neck area.

Joe had no problems with the teat either as he had already tried it out when we tested another of the Chicco bottle range. It is a really flexible, natural silicone teat and includes an anti-colic valve.

Another plus is that the Chicco Evolution is just as quick and easy to clean, sterilise and assemble as a conventional one.

I really liked the shimmery amber coloured plastic, which I thought looked very smart. It felt as though it would stand up to more rounds in the microwave steriliser and dishwasher than the standard clear bottles, which quickly end up going cloudy and get stained by the limescale in the water.

What to watch out for

The Chicco Evolution bottle is longer than many bottles out there so make sure it will fit in your steriliser, bottle warmer and other accessories before splashing out as it is on the pricey side. Although I love the angled design, it meant it wouldn’t fit into my bottle bag – not great when you’re out and about.

Who is Chicco Evolution bottle best for?

Mums who have a bit of cash to spend on a bottle that might just help lessen colic and air swallowing.

MadeForMums verdict

The Chicco Evolution with angled neck is a really different bottle. It delivers on style and substance with its anti-colic features, just be aware that it may not fit in your bottle bag or steriliser.
