Not impressed with this set. I only really bought it for the larger storage bottles, however, I’ve been using medela for three years and this set contains new bottles that are quite obviously made of cheaper/less robust plastic than the ones I’ve been using for years. They feel thin and flimsy and I can’t imagine them lasting long after storing/freezing breastmilk in them.
On top of this, I’ve had loads of issues with the quality and longevity of the Calma teat, but I’ve reviewed that separately. The difficulty is once you start using medela products and grow to love them and rely on them, you have to then deal with inferior products when they ‘update’ their lines. I guess it’s a thing that’s hapening with a lot of companies so I don’t blame them, but the quality of products has definitely gone down...the customer service, however, is amazing, so they’re worth giving a try if even for that, if you don’t like something or it doesn’t work for you, they are extremely accommodating and resourceful with finding a solution.
Medela it is for me the best bottle for babies out there. I also have the electric breast pump (highly recommended) and I believe the Medela calm teat it is ideal if you want your baby not to come of the breast, as it emulates the same effort they have to make to suck from the breast. This lot is good value and perfect for milk storage. For me it makes my life easier and I involve my partner in the feeding of my baby even though my little one is 100% breastfed.
The bottles and the Calma teat are excellent. That's what I bought it for. They really work and clean and sterilise well. The only negative about this set is the milk storage bags which are terrible to pour the milk into and out of. If you want milk bags, buy the Lansinoh ones

. Much better!
The quality of the Medela bottles are very good. It was on offer with amazon. So, very good value for money,. I have used this for my first baby and the bottle lasted for more than a year. The plastic is thick and of good quality, it doesn't smell when you warm in the microwave. Easy to wash and clean.
I bought this set to with the Medela hand pump a friend had given me. We were looking to find a product that meant I could breastfeed my one month old and give him the occasional bottle of required, the calma teat has worked really well with him taking a bottle and then going back to breastfeeding with no issues. I would definitely recommend this product for combination feeding.
I bought this feeding set after buying the medela hand pump. This set is good value for money and gives you everything you need to store breast milk efficiently. Bottles easily attach to the hand pump and the little lids are handy for storing in the fridge.
We had to mix feed our baby because of Kristine jaundice and I immediately thought there was a design flaw in the standard bottles and teats where the baby gets free flowing, fast flowing milk. The breasts are nothing like this and it felt like force feeding. These calms lids however are very different and baby has to work for the feed, flow is slower. I would never use any other lids for feeding my baby.
A good starter kit, compatible with Medela breast pumps. I have to say my baby didn't take the Calma teat, so I had to purchase a separate set of feeding bottles. In hindsight, should have just bought a couple of 150ml Medela bottles to go with the pump and some storage pouches. I have not used the 250ml bottles at all, however, these may come handy for those with better milk supply or primarily feeding expressed milk.
Could not live without this given that I’m currently having to produce milk like a possessed dairy cow. Easy to use & clean. Great selection of products in the range. Very quiet pump & love that I can take it to work and use it with batteries.
