Products were selected based on independent research and suggestions from the WTE community of millions of parents.
- Best Bottle Sterilizer: Medela’s Quick Clean Micro-Steam Bags: What to Expect community members love these bags because they take up so little space and are easy to use.
- Best Nipple Shields: Medela Contact Nipple Shields: A What to Expect community favorite thanks to their unique design that allows more skin-to-skin contact with baby.
- Best Breast Milk Cooler: Medela Breast Milk Cooler and Transport Set: It has insulated walls and comes with four Medela bottles, but many users have used it with other brand's bottles as well.
How were winning brands selected?
We started with the categories we knew were key for feeding and gathered a few great options for each. These contenders were based on what parents on the What to Expect editorial team have road-tested personally, as well as what we saw recommended again and again in the What to Expect community. From there, we also polled parents in our community, asking them to vote for their absolute favorite feeding-related products in each category.
