Mixie Baby Bottle Review
I did a lot of research about Mixie and so I was able to make an informed decision on whether to buy it for my daughter or not. Firstly, my daughter was not taking in any formula. I had tried several bottles and when I thought we were winning she would stop drinking.
Mixie is a baby bottle with an inbuilt formula dispenser that you fill in yourself. You place it in the bottle from the base with a lid on. you add water as you would with a normal bottle. When it is time to feed your baby just press the button and voilà the formula will be released and all you have to do is shake. It comes in 4 and 8 ounce sizes and this a review on the 8 ounce bottle.
When I received my Mixie baby bottles I was so excited. The packaging is an indication of the quality of the bottle. In the case of the mixie baby bottle; I judged a book by its cover and I was not disappointed.
I sterilized my bottle before using it. The instructions are so easy to follow. You actually do not need instructions; that is how easy it is to assemble or prepare the bottle.
This bottle is of great quality, the nipple is durable but still gentle and soft. My baby found it easy to latch and it has an anti colic system I believe. The nipple does not collapse during feeding due to suction. My daughter stays latched on for the duration of the whole feed as she would with my breast. The flow of the nipple is steady and not to overpowering or slow. She was also choking with the other bottles and sometimes getting frustrated if the bottle had a slow flow.
I think one of the best things about this bottle is its compatibility with most nipples on the market made for wide neck bottles. If our child was doing well with an Avent, Dr Brown’s bottle, Born Free or Nuk all you have to do is change the nipple and still enjoy the Mixie baby bottle.
The mixie baby bottle is ideal for day care, night time feeds, daddy day care, busy parents of multiples and when you just cannot trust anyone else to prepare your baby formula. You do not need to move around with a separate container of baby formula or even a baby formula milk tin. I remember doing that with my first baby when I was not organised and running late. Found myself scooping milk powder in the shopping mall.

The dispenser for the bottle has enough room to fit 5 scoops of baby formula. After 3 scoops I just tap the container and the formula settles and I have plenty of room. My baby is 7 months and only takes in 200mls and 4 scoops.
Above is the dispenser with 4 scoops of formula and plenty of room for 5 scoops.
The dispenser and lid is the only part that needs to be completely dry and It is also easy to dry. I used a paper towel and when dry put the lid on and I am good to go. You do need to make sure that the lid is on tight and the cap that screws the bottom is tightly screwed without missing threads so it does not leak. I wish I had this bottle for my first. I will miss using it when my little princess grows up and moves on to a sippy cup. Not anytime soon so I get to enjoy the bottle.
I always say to my husband that I had children to enhance my life and not the other way round. If it makes sense and makes it easy for me to enjoy my life and babies I will buy it!
