Adiri Bottle Review

Adiri was kind enough to send me a sample of one of their Natural Nurser bottles to sample. I was able to try the bottle out on my son. The following is my review of the Adiri Natural Nurser Ultimate Baby Bottle - Stage 1.

The Adiri bottle is designed to simulate breast. On the box it states "Introducing the ultimate baby bottle: the world's most breast-like bottle experience."

Pictured above is the Adiri Natural Nurser. On the left is the bottle and on the right is the cap.
After receiving the bottle I read the product instructions, which prompted me to boil all bottle parts in hot water for five minutes before use.

Well, unfortunately in my haste to try the bottle out, I didn't read the directions well enough. I put the pumped breast milk directly into the upside down bottle and the milk spilled everywhere. So I had to start over again.

Note to Adiri users, read instructions thoroughly; even if you are one of those people who 'hates instruction manuals' and can 'figure it out on your own by trial and error.'

So, I washed the bottle and parts out with hot soapy water as instructed by Adiri. I waited a few hours and pumped again.

This time I read the manual. It told me to:

--put the cap on the bottle

--turn bottle and cap upside down so that nipple is facing downward

--make sure the nipple is securely in the cap

--screw open the bottom of the bottle

--pour breast milk into the bottle

--screw cap back on

--finally turn bottle right side up.

At last, I was ready to try out the bottle on my one year old son who has not taken a bottle since he was five months old.

I put the Adiri Natural Nurser on his high chair tray in front of him. I kid you not, he immediately grabbed it, placed it in his mouth, drank from it, and smiled.

He was in love.

The only issue that he had was the flow seemed to be a bit too slow for him. He didn't get frustrated, he just seemed like he wanted more milk then he was getting at one given time. I may have to purchase a faster flow version of the Natural Nurser from Adiri.

The Natural Nurser comes in three flow rates. 0-3 months, 3-6 months and 6 months to one year. Perhaps he will like the fastest flow the best.

All in all, my son really liked the Adiri Natural Nurser. As a breastfeeding mom, I wholeheartedly recommend this bottle to babies who are nursing and do not take a traditional bottle.

  1. I received this kind response from Adiri moments after posting this review:

    Hi Sarah,

    Thank you so much for the great review!

    We really appreciate your support and are glad your son likes our bottles!

    Just one thing to note that the instructions book incorrectly says that you may use the microwave with our bottles. However, our bottles shouldn't microwaved or placed over 100 degrees Celsius or 212 degrees Fahrenheit.

    Please let me know if you have any questions.

    Thanks and Kind Regards,


  2. Wow! I sure wish Adiri was around when I was nursing. There are so many innovative products and this is surely one of them. Thanks for keeping everyone up on things in the marketplace.

  3. I actually tried Adiri when I was pumping. Cordy sent me one, but T hated it. The nipple is sooo short on them, compared to other bottles, and when she nursed she'd take a big "bite" so was used to having her mouth...well, full I suppose for lack of a better term. I'm glad they worked for you though!

  4. Yeah, he did like it, although the slow flow was tough. I wanted the faster flow version!
