Tommee Tippee’s Perfect Prep machine makes the perfect bottle! {Giveaway!}

It’s 3am and I hear Asher waking up for a feed. My heart is saying yes, but my body says no as I try to rise out of bed to see to him. I mean, I had literally just closed my eyes. Need sleep… can’t function. I nudge Hubstopher… it’s a silent “tag you’re it” and he grunts as he tries to escape my plea for help. I decide to grab baby, prepare his bottle and kinda just, you know, deposit him into his father’s arms, as one does.

The boy is a giant. And I’m not just saying so because it sounds like a fun thing to say. He is heavy. Juggling him, his blanket and bottle, while not stepping on toys, as I creep towards the kitchen, is probably what ninja training is made of. Once I reach the kitchen, I switch on the kettle, trying to shush him and prepare the bottle at the same time. It takes forever. The shushing is now accompanied with a little dance, as I try to keep him quiet. If the other monsters kids wake up my dream of getting some rest tonight will be just that – a dream. The water is finally boiled and I now have to figure out how I’m going to get it into the bottle, and get the bottle made AND cooled, without upsetting my hungry baby even more. I silently mouth a prayer, while wondering how much Hollywood would pay me for my life story since it pretty much feels as if I am living in a sitcom. Baby starts crying again. This time, it’s loud enough to wake the others up. Jonah cries. Karis cries. I cry. The end.

Okay, okay, my evenings aren’t thaaat dramatic. Well, not all the time atleast. And especially not since we got our hands on the Tommee Tippee Closer to Nature Perfect Prep machine. Now, I know what you’re thinking… it’s the same thing my mom said when she realised that we use a whole machine just to prepare our baby’s formula bottles: “Seriously Luchae, do you really need a machine for that?!” 

And the answer is yes. The biggest, fattest yes!

The perfect bottle… every time!

Because I combo feed my baby, I may not always have a readily prepared bottle on hand. I mean, sure you can prepare your formula bottles ahead of time and store them in the refrigerator for up to 24 hours. But even then, it would probably need to be heated up, before baby would take it. Heating a formula bottle in the microwave is not advisable since it might heat unevenly, creating ‘hot spots’ that would burn baby’s mouth. So doing it the old school way is probably your safest bet. And yep. that takes time.

The Tommee Tippee Closer to Nature Perfect Prep machine prepares the perfect bottle in under two minutes! And friends, I’m talking perfect temperature, correct amount of water, in under two minutes AND you can operate it using only one hand… which, in my opinion, is the biggest score!

Your bottle will be the correct temperature for your baby pretty much immediately! No wait time. No screaming children. No headaches.

The Perfect Prep has a filter system that removes impurities from the water and it’s initial “hot shot” kills any bacteria that may be in the formula.

And, my favorite thing about it is that it’s so easy to use, I even have my teenager prepping bottles! This machine is great for when you’re leaving baby with a babysitter or a helper and you’re concerned that they may not prepare their bottles correctly. There is no way they can get it wrong! Perfect Prep gives you the extra peace of mind that comes from knowing your baby’s bottle will be perfect every time.

      Oh my goodness this is a dream prize. I am soon to be a first time mom with my baby girl arriving in January. This would seriously help calm some of the chaos that comes with feeds #firsttimemom #tommeetippeeforthewin

  • Raeesa Thulsiapersadh

    I had my first baby in May and tried hard to breast feed but ended up having to go with formula and it has since been a struggle at night getting a perfect bottle. If it’s not too much hot water, it’s too much cold water and we start all over. I’ve entered every competition I can to win this heaven sent machine. It would just make life so much easier and less stressful. I love how it can be done with the push of a button not moving water from bottle to bottle to get the perfect temperature.

    I think that the The Tommee Tippee Closer to Nature Perfect Prep machine is just amazing! The two minutes preparation is just the perfect time before baby starts howling for his feed! The bonus of being able operate it using only one hand means you can hold baby calmly in your hands in the meantime

  • Cindy Burke

    This Machine is AMAZING, I’ve said it before and I’ll say it again, it’s like an Espresso machine for babies. So convenient, so easy and pretty enough to be stored on your kitchen counter. No bulky, noisy machines that get in the way, take up space and wake up sleeping kiddies.

  • Sadé Billett

    My baby has ibs like me… so whenever the.bottle isn’t properly prepared she throws this machine Will be perfect for her.

  • Nompilo

    I am a first time mom. Student mom should I add. The first time I saw or read about this dream machine, I knew. Deep inside me, I knew this was made specially for me.
    I can just imagine the joys of pressing and feeding system that would save me 2-3 hours of sleep that any mom and definitely a student needs to wake up refreshed and feeling like a boss ready to take on the world.

    I’ve been trying to save for this machine but being a first time mom, I didn’t know there were unplanned medicines or a better bottle to feed my baby with, just something small coming up and have me use my savings all the time.

    Now, just like I knew about the dream machine being made for me, I know this giveaway was made for me too
    This is definitely a must have for every mom

  • Shiela Motaung

Did I mention I am technically a Tommie Tippie ambassador husbae always says “does it matter if it’s not TT” and I’m like boo I’m a loyal user of TT

  • Mericha Maccario

    What an amazing machine! I gave birth to my first child in September this year. I try so hard to make sure I have his feeding times figured out so that he never catches me without a bottle, but every now and again I manage to slip up and end up with a hungry screaming baby! This machine would be a dream in our home!!

  • Sarah Bibi Essa

    When I first heard about this machine while preparing to attend Mama magic for the first time this year, I was thrilled that such a machine existed. This would make preparing bottles an absolute dream!
