Tommee Tippee Closer to Nature Travel Products Review

Having recently got back from our first holiday abroad with baby Holiday I have a few tips to share on products that made our lives easier. today I'm sharing my thoughts on a few Tommee Tippee travel products - some of which I bought, and some I was sent to review.

Tommee Tippee Closer to Nature Single Bottle Travel Steriliser

Tommee Tippee Single Bottle Steriliser

Experience told me that in the hot climate of Poland I might struggle to keep up my breast milk supply so I wanted to take bottle feeding kit with me on holiday without it taking up valuable luggage space in the back of my car.  I invested in a Tommee Tippee single-bottle steriliser which is less than 30cm tall.

The steriliser can be used for microwave sterilisation or for cold-water sterilisation (this was more suitable for us as we were staying in hotel rooms for the duration of our holiday).  I invested in some sterilisation solution and each evening I prepared a bottle just in case.  The steriliser features an internal cage into which you place the pieces of the bottle, sterilisation solution and water.  Our solution took 15 minutes to sterilise and it kept for many hours if the steriliser remained unopened.

I found the Single Bottle Sterliser indispensible on holiday and will definitely be using it again when we travel in the UK and abroad.

Tommee Tippee Closer to Nature Insulated Bottle Carriers

The Tommee Tippee insulated bottle carrier appealed to me because it only takes one bottle (unlike my previous carrier which was designed to take several bottles).  I took it on holiday because it was compact and because I knew that I could use it to carry cool water for Holly to drink on hot days, or warmed water if she needed it for a feed.

My only complain about the Closer to Nature insulated bottle bag is that because it is designed for Tommee Tippee bottles, it is quite short and so other brands of bottle struggle to fit.  I do like the velcro handle though as it means you can strap it to the buggy.

Tommee Tippee Sangenic Wrap & Go (Travel Nappy Wrapper)

Now, if you have been a reader of Mellow Mummy for some time you will know that me and nappy wrappers don't get on because of my green credentials.  I also tend not to use nappy sacks unless absolutely necessary (normally when I am out and about or travelling) and when I do, the sacks are always biodegradable.

Therefore, the Tommee Tippee Sangenic travel nappy wrapper isn't really my thing but I was sent one to try and it seemed to make good sense to take with us on our road trip where I wouldn't necessarily be able to find a sealed dustbin in a hotel room or at the side of the road.  The Wrap & Go is a little case which you can strap to your buggy which dispenses scented, anti-bacterial, tie-top nappy bags.

The bags are garish colours and the citrussy scent is overwhelming when you first open the packet (although it does quickly disappear and the bags are more or less unscented after a few days in your changing bag).  The refills of bags on a little roller are easy to put in and out of the dispenser but not so easy to re-wind when your three year old pulls out the entire roll and winds it all around your hotel room.

I'm not sure that the Wrap & Go offers me much more value than my normal nappy sacks but if you are someone used to using a nappy wrapper, I can see that they would be appealing.
