In a nutshell

This could be the closest a bottle can come to mimicking your breast, plus it has great anti-colic features. However, it's does have a few niggles.

The Nuby Natural Touch SoftFlex Silicone Nurser has a very natural, nipple-like teat and features anti-colic valves that reduce wind and the amount of suction your baby has use. If you’re combining breastfeeding and bottle, this is top option to try.

The Nuby Natural Touch SoftFlex Silicone Nurser promises to provide a natural feeding experience with a design that mimics the breast and anti-colic features that reduce the amount of air your baby ingests.

The breast-size teat flexes and extends like a real nipple, helping your baby to latch on easily. It also transfers the warmth of the milk inside the bottle, mimicking the warmth of your breast.

The Nuby Natural Touch SoftFlex Silicone Nurser is BPA-free. It includes special anti-colic valves in the base and teat and because it’s made of a soft silicone it allows you to gently squeeze the sides so you can help your baby feed.

The 150ml bottles are available in a single pack for £5.99 or a twin pack for £7.49.

What we love

My 8-week-old Joe has taken to the bottle well since we introduced it at 4 weeks and this one was no exception. He latched on well to the teat and it is the most natural one we’ve come across, which makes this a really good option for mums who are combining bottle with breastfeeding or who are introducing their baby to the bottle for the first time.

The anti-colic valves in the base and teat of the bottle allow air to flow in, reducing the amount of suction your baby needs to apply. Joe can tire easily while feeding but this helped him keep sucking for longer and seemed to minimise dribbling. Although no bottle can completely eliminate colic, Joe did seem slightly less burpy than usual after feeding.

The Nuby Natural Touch SoftFlex Silicone Nurser was quick and easy to clean, sterilise and assemble. The soft silicone that the bottle is made from is pleasant to hold, with the indents in the side of the bottle providing a good grip.

What to watch out for

The Nuby Natural Touch SoftFlex Silicone Nurser is on the bulky side considering it only holds 150ml.

The measurements on the side of the bottle are really tricky to read – especially once the bottle goes cloudy after several sterilising sessions in the microwave.

Its also worth bearing in mind that replacement teats might not be that easy to get hold of as this is an American company, which isn’t stocked as widely as some other brands.

Who is Nuby Natural Touch SoftFlex Silicone Nurser best for?

Mums who want to combine bottle with breastfeeding with minimal confusion for their baby.

MadeForMums verdict

The Nuby Natural Touch SoftFlex Silicone Nurser is probably as near as a bottle can get to mimicking the feel of a real breast. It’s BPA-free, anti-colic and easy to clean. However, it might be a better option for feeding at home rather than on the go because of its bulky design.
