What are the Ovia Family Awards?
Every year we ask Ovia parents to nominate the products and brands that supported their parenting journey and to tell us how/why they made such an impact on their lives.
We analyze thousands of votes, pieces of feedback, and thoughtful recommendations to find the best of the best to give an Ovia Family Award. When you see our seal, you know that what you’re buying was chosen by parents who have used it, trust it, and really do recommend it to families just like yours.
In this category, we’re giving awards for:
- Best bottle
- Best milk storage
- Best bottle sterilizer
For all our other winners, visit our Ovia Family Awards Hub.
*All products featured are independently selected. However, when you buy something through our retail links, we may earn an affiliate commission.
Best Overall Bottle: Phillips AVENT
I love that there are just three pieces — bottle, ring, and nipple. So easy to clean and assemble.”
Finding the perfect bottle can mean many rounds of testing before your little Goldilocks deems one “just right.” If you’d rather cut to the chase, we asked thousands of moms what worked best for their babies.
Families love Philips AVENT bottles because their natural nipple options make for a seamless transition from breast to bottle, they’re easy to clean, and they come in a variety of style, material, size, and color options.
“LOVE LOVE LOVE the Avent Natural! My breastfed babies have had no issue transitioning between breast and bottle. Also, promotes proper oral development! Easy to clean and assemble!”

Best Milk Storage: Kiinde
This was THE BEST!!! Pumped straight into the bag, froze, warmed, and fed all from the same container. Our son never had gas issues and took to the nipple well.”
Milk storage needs to be two things: effective and mess-free. When we asked, parents all over the world agreed–Kiinde is both of these things.
“This is such a great system to use, especially for working moms. Less parts, less mess, such a timesaver!”
“Kiinde is LITERALLY a GAME CHANGER! No more extra dirty parts to wash because you can pump right into the bags! Then you can warm milk in their warmer without having to take it out of the bag and then you just pop the whole bag into the bottle with a nipple! FREAKING AMAZING!!!!”
What could we say that would get you more on board with Kiinde than what these thrilled parents have already said? We could reiterate that the Kiinde system allows you to pump straight into the bag, which eliminates the mess of transfers and makes for an easier cleanup. Did that work?
