Can I use the UMEE baby bottle without the vent?

No. The UMEE bottle can only work when its unique anti-colic vent system is installed properly.

How does the UMEE vent work?

The innovative vent sits on the bottle neck allowing air into the bottle and preventing a vacuum from building up inside it. Just like during breastfeeding a steady flow of milk is provided only when your baby suckles, thus minimizing the risk of colic symptoms.

Breastfeeding vs bottle feeding?

Breastfeeding is the healthiest way to feed your baby. However, if you decide to feed your baby with a bottle you should make sure the bottle you use is as close as possible to breastfeeding.

All umee bottles have 3 unique advantages which bring them as close as possible to breastfeeding:

  1. Anti colic vent that allows an easy flow of liquid while preventing teat collapse.
  2. Insulated add on cover creates a more natural feed by keeping the ideal temperature for longer while feeding.
  3. Specially designed nipple teat shape which helps to combine breast and bottle feeding, contributes to a more natural feel while feeding.

“Easily the best baby feeding bottle on the market.

I’m quite a busy person and between my career and raising my first born, Mike, I cherish every ‘free’ moment I get during the day. After using several baby bottle brands I found that cleaning bottles can be quite a time waster. Many have numerous parts that require each to be cleaned over and over again… argh!

How was I surprised when I discovered the UMEE Bottle. It’s simply amazing; since it has a wide neck body which helps me clean inside quickly and thoroughly. Plus its one piece air vent is a delight – no extra pieces to wash, just that one and you’re done. LOVE IT!”
