MAM Anti-Colic/Self Sterilizing Bottle
The Anti-Colic bottle is just one of the innovative developments from the MAM design studio. Its vented base has small air holes and a silicone seal that allows for maximum air flow in while still preventing milk from leaking out. The vented base ensures controlled milk flow by balancing air pressure inside the bottle. Liquid is also pushed towards the nipple allowing it to retain its shape and preventing it from collapsing.
All Anti-Colic bottles use MAM's patented ultra soft silicone? nipple. Transitioning from breast to bottle is simple because MAM ultra soft silicone? nipples feel most like mom's breast.
Safety is a priority and MAM Anti-Colic bottles, similar to all other MAM products, are CPSIA compliant and completely Baby Safe; BPA-free, Lead-free, PVC-free and Phthalate-free. They are available in two sizes, 5 ounce and 8 ounce, with unique designs.
