I thought
this was an amazing product, even just hearing about it makes you think
positive and then when you actually try it you’re not let down! It came it
extremely handy during and after the birth. I genuinely didn’t worry too much
about the packaging, reason for this was because it needs to be cleaned and
washed before use but it clearly stated on the box what was included and clear
picture of what the item was all about. The instructions was extremely clear
and precise on what was needed to get this set up, now it’s only a water bottle
so it doesn’t really need instructions but it told you different ways this
could be hung/used. I did use this during labour and it was much needed as I
wanted to keep my husband close by so I could direct my pain at him instead of
him going off every so often to fill up a regular glass (if I didn’t have
this). The real godsend was post labour when you’re extremely sore and tired
and instead of moving about when your sole focus is your baby you only have to
move your head/mouth. As previously stated when your sole focus in the baby now
you find this very beneficial not only because you don’t have to move to
hydrate yourself but because it holds a lot inside the bottle so having to top
up regular is not a worry! I unfortunately don’t take the product out but this
could easily attach to a pram or any kind of transportation you have as you
don’t need to use the straw as it also comes with a sports cap. This did not
leak at all; as long as the lid is screwed on tightly then this would not leak
(unless you have a faulty one). At first it was a little stiff to get out but
once you get the hang of how to suck then it becomes a doddle. It is like most
water bottles, only serves one purpose and you can’t really go wrong with them
and it’s the same with this one. 100% value for money, any product that can aid during labour and
post labour will always get value for money but the fact it then goes to a
regular bottle for on the go is an added bonus. Maybe give a choice of colours
but that’s me being picky. I would definitely buy this product if I didn’t
already have it. Any woman going into labour should have this bottle and I will
stress this to all my friends as every little helps in that situation. An
absolutely amazing product does exactly what it says on the tin and I would
like to thank the creator for helping during a stressful and painful time. I
had my partner by my side at all times thanks to this product! Samantha

I was
intrigued by the product; it wasn’t like any drinking bottle I’d seen before. Nice
simple packaging. Very clear instructions.
I did not use this during labour as received after I had given birth
unfortunately. I found the
bottle a good idea but didn’t have anywhere to clip the tube and stand the
bottle as I feed on a nursing chair. Therefore I had to keep picking the bottle
up to have a drink and I found it a bit cumbersome. No I haven’t thought to take it out with me.
I’m not sure I would find any benefit over a standard water bottle. No leaks at all with this bottle. I found the mouthpiece easy to
drink from. I liked the valve idea. I’d say the quality is average. Personally I feel this is quite expensive. I just found it a bit cumbersome and
difficult to use, not sure how it could be improved. I think the idea is good
and I can see the benefits when in Labour which unfortunately I didn’t get to
try out. For example, I think it would be good to use in the birthing pool.
However, I didn’t find the bottle any benefit to myself when feeding my baby
over a standard water bottle. Clare Waters – Heidi 3 Months

Looked
interesting product when arrived as had not heard of this before. Packaging bright and informative and would
catch my eye. Very easy to follow
instructions. I did use this during
labour and found it helpful. Far more
relaxing to have fluids ready for when you need them as this clipped easily to
the back of the hospital bed and I had fluids when needed without having to
reach for a glass or ask for water.
Brilliant and easy to use. This
was also ideal after labour as great to use while feeding baby. I just clipped to the chair, and just had
water ready when I needed it without disturbing baby and kept me hydrated. Brilliant idea and brilliant design. I have
not thought of taking this out with us, but then it could easily be clipped to
the pram and we could all grab a drink when required without having to get out
bottles or baby cups. Will have to give
this option a try. This did not leak at
all. I found this very easy to drink
from no problems at all. Quality is good it is a standard water bottle but
serves purpose well. It is a good
product and really helps during labour and when feeding baby, but I do feel a
little overpriced. I would consider
purchasing this. Already recommended to
a few friends due to give birth later this year. This is an innovative product design and
absolutely brilliant during labour and when you are breastfeeding baby. Keeps you hydrated at all times. Magdalena Madsen – Arthur 2 Months
