I’ve been using Dr.Browns for the past 2 months and I’m really so grateful that they approached me about their products because quite simply, the products are GREAT!
I was supposed to do a review a bit earlier but I needed the time to use the products and to actually have an honest opinion about what I thought and if the products really made a difference, mainly, the bottle & if it helped with Marley’s Colic, which IT DID!!
Check out their products here: https://siroccolifestyle.co.ke/dr-browns-kenya
Baby Bottle- This is the product I was most excited about receiving because Marley had colic and I felt so sad watching her have so much pain with gas all the time! I noticed that when she used this bottle, she wasn’t taking in air like she did on her other and it was really working, it still is! This is a God Send!! On top of that it comes with a little bottle brush that makes it so easy to clean the hard to get to places!
Here is a little something I had read about it to explain how it helps: “Dr. Brown’s bottles also help reduce spit-up, burping and gas by eliminating negative pressure and air bubbles, help preserve vitamins C, A, & E by minimizing oxidation of breastmilk and formula, and provide vacuum-free feeding similar to breastfeeding.”
“Your options have never been better with Dr. Brown’s Natural Flow® Options+™ Wide-Neck Bottle. From nipple to base, the Options+ Wide-Neck Bottle makes for a comfortable feeding experience for baby and eases the transition from breast to bottle and back again.Starting at the top, each nipple is specially engineered to offer the same consistent, natural flow, so you and baby know what to expect in every feeding. The NEW breast-like nipple shape is correctly contoured for a proper latch and a more natural bottle feeding experience – perfect for switching from breast to bottle and back again! Together with the anti-colic internal vent system, baby feeds without fuss.
But it doesn’t stop there. The anti-colic internal vent system features an enhanced design to improve an already innovative feeding experience:
- Clinically proven to reduce colic
- Decreases spit-up, burping, and gas
- Shown to better preserve nutrients in breast milk and formula
- Aids in digestion for a good night’s sleep
- Offers a flow rate that supports breastfeeding.
Options+™ is dishwasher (top rack) and sterilizer safe. BPA free. 0m+.”
Pacifier & Bottle wipes- We all know as parents that it is impossible to keep our bottles, pacifiers heck ANYTHING clean, especially with children throwing them all over the place! This product is AMAZING because instead of having to get up and wash whatever it is they have dropped, you can just wipe it away! PRO TIP I love to work out and I love being at the beach so when your all sweaty, just use a wipe and put your boob straight into baby’s mouth!
- Naturally cleans pacifiers, bottles, teethers, cups and toys
- Easy to use and perfect for on-the-go
- Reduces saliva transfer and helps maintain good oral health

Deluxe Bottle warmer- Oh man has this made warming up frozen milk or even cold milk A LOT easier. No need to start thinking about if you’ve heated the milk up too much and if its too hot, no need boiling water, no need fussing over any of it because this bottle warmer does it all for you! It’s also quite small so you can carry it wherever you go and just warm your milk or formula up easily while on the go! HOW CONVENIENT IS THAT!
This also warms up baby’s food jars which will be great when i’m finally getting Marley on food!

Baby’s first straw cup- So, Olive had already been using cups so I can’t comment on how one of my babies transitioned to this cup, but what I can say is Olive loves it and it’s super cute! This bottle is supposed it help you transition into using sippy cups and I can definitely see how it would make it easier with how soft the straw is, it is also spill proof which is great for us mum’s out there (not having to clean up spills at every turn)!
“Designed to help baby transition from bottle to cup, this spill-proof straw cup features a soft, flexible straw that allows your baby to drink while holding this cup at any angle.Helping your little one learn to use a straw and designed with handles that are easy for little hands to hold, the cup also features these benefits:

2 in 1 Transition Bottle Kit- I have not had the chance to give this a spin, Marley rather, she is not of age yet, but i’m excited to do so when the time comes because it will make Marley’s transition from her bottle to a sippy cup a lot easier! So for now I will leave you with what is written on their website!
“When baby’s ready, simply replace the vent and bottle nipple with the super soft sippy spout. The silicone spout is gentle on little mouths and attaches and detaches from bottles in seconds. Benefits include:
- Grows with baby – easily converts from Options™ bottle to sippy spout
- Easy to sip and spill proof when not in use
- Soft, silicone spout is gentle on little mouths
- Easy to clean – dishwasher safe (top rack only)”
Nipples- I’m going to make an educated guess here and say the Dr.Browns nipples are GREAT because Marley took to them very easily! She’s very very happy on her bottle and to me, that’s what matters! The ones I received are for 9+months so we will see how these ones go when she gets there!
“Made of super-soft, high-grade silicone, each nipple level provides a different flow rate.
All of these bottle nipples vary in size and shape. From the Preemie Flow nipple, which limits the flow to tiny mouths to the Y-Cut nipple which literally utilizes a “Y”-shaped opening to allow for greater milk flow, you’ll find the bottle nipple that’s the perfect fit for your baby’s feeding needs.”
Bottle Brush- This cleaning brush really gets the job done well! Ee all know that babies need everything to be really clean, sometimes its hard to get into all those little spots but this brush makes it all super easy! Score!
“Keep all your baby bottles squeaky clean with Dr. Brown’s™ Bottle Brush. The Dr. Brown’s Bottle Brush is designed specifically for all Dr. Brown’s bottles and features a combination bristle and sponge head to thoroughly scrub bottles clean. The grooved, no-slip handle features a specially-designed ridged nipple cleaner in the base to clean your Dr. Brown’s bottle nipples. Includes a suction storage clip to keep the brush conveniently near the sink. Dishwasher safe (top rack only). BPA-free.”
Prevent Pacifiers- THESE HELP WITH COLIC! Enough said! (Oh, but they also are glow in the dark and are super cute :))
“Developed by a pediatric dentist to help prevent dental issues – and now easier to see and find.
Soft, suction-release bulb spreads wider as baby sucks for low-pressure comfort, plus thin-stem design is minimally intrusive on baby’s mouth. Contoured “butterfly” shaped shield curves away from baby’s face for comfort, plus allows plenty of room for little noses and cheeks. Safe, non-toxic illumination makes it easy for baby and parents to find at night and is easy to recharge – just expose to light. BPA-free and designed for babies 0 to 6 months or 6-12 months.”
Look guys, it comes down to this. I haven’t been through thousands of bottles and brands and all that, so I can’t speak from comparison but I can speak from experience and these products have been REALLY REALLY GREAT! I have really enjoyed using them as have my kids, they have made my life easier and happier and I would really really suggest that any of you looking for baby products for your kids check out Dr.Browns!
