Bottles &Toddler Cups
The MAM bottle is unscrewed and taken apart to make it easier to clean. This makes it easy to rinse the individual parts with water and a mild cleaning agent. All individual parts become hygienically clean in any steriliser. Sterilisation before each use of the bottle is particularly important for newborns.
The body’s defences are already very well developed in a baby who is six months old. At this age, all you need to do is sterilise the bottle and the teat occasionally. If the baby is ill, the bottle should be sterilised again every single day.
The self-sterilising function of the Easy Start™™ Anti-Colic is proven to be effective for killing common household germs and bacteria. This method is completely sufficient and safe. For the best results, please follow all instructions carefully and use only as directed.
MAM innovative self-sterilising function:
For simple & safe bottle sterilisation in the microwave - without a separate sterilising device.
- Step 1: Assemble clean bottle parts as follows: base with silicone valve, teat with screw ring, bottle body and protective cap.
- Step 2: Fill the base with silicone valve with 20 ml of cool water. The protective cap makes a practical measuring cup.
- Step 3: Place the screw ring with teat in the bottle base. Place the bottle body on it (optionally screw in slightly to avoid pouring out hot water by removing the bottle from microwave). Place the protective cap on top.
Set the microwave timer according to the number of bottles being simultaneously cleaned. Set microwave from 500 to 1000 Watts.
Allow bottle to cool down before removing from microwave. Recommended cooling time: 10 minutes at opened microwave door.
After the process is complete, the Easy Start™ Anti-Colic bottle remains desinfected up to 48 hours after self-sterilising in the microwave, provided that it stays assembled as shown on Step 3.
For immediate usage: Pour away the leftover water from the base.
Before the bottle is placed in the water bath or the bottle warmer, the sealing cap is always removed. The contents of the bottle must not boil – so do not pour any boiling liquids into it!
Before feeding begins, the bottle should be dried using a clean cloth.
Yes. Simply remove the cap, ring and teat and warm up the MAM bottle in the microwave. After heating, stir around so that the heat is evenly distributed. Before baby begins to eat any food, check the temperature and then baby can begin eating.
For hygiene reasons, the teats should be replaced at regular intervals. Simply check the teat each time you are about to use the bottle – especially when baby already has teeth – and replace it when the first signs of damage or weak points become apparent.
Yes, because the innovative protective cap ensures that the liquid remains in the bottle. This means there is no need for any small sealing disc: Simply place the protective cap on the bottle and then you can transport it safely.
Yes, all parts in the MAM bottles are shatterproof, except the Glass bottle as glass may break.
Four-month-old babies love drinking from a cup. The MAM Cup provides them with the ideal support here. This will ensure that baby makes the perfect transition from breastfeeding or bottle feeding to independent drinking.
No. MAM products do not contain any plasticizers.
MAM only ever uses materials which satisfy the highest demands and safety standards. This means that MAM products guarantee that babies enjoy the best start in life.
MAM has developed bottle nipples in five different sizes. This means that the size of the hole is always perfectly matched to the type of food: The correct flow speed for the food ensures that babies always suck vigorously and thus aids their healthy development.
Five smart sizes for perfect enjoyment while sucking:
Size 1: from birth onwards – for baby’s first food which is particularly free-flowing
Size 2: from 2 months – perfect for the baby who is now slightly better trained
Size 3: from 4 months – baby sucks more vigorously and drinks faster
Size x: from 6 months – the ideal teat for mashed-up food
Spill-free teat: from 4 months - ideal for baby’s first independent drinking tries
Bottle nipples are simply rinsed with water and mild cleaning agent or cleaned in the upper compartment of the dishwasher.
The nipple is sterilised before it is first used and then at regular intervals.
For hygiene reasons, the nipples should be replaced at regular intervals. Simply check the teat each time you are about to use the bottle – especially when baby already has teeth – and replace it when the first signs of damage or weak points become apparent.
The MAM nipple is easily accepted by 94%* of babies thanks to its SkinSoft™ silicone surface and its unique flat shape, which feel so familiar to babies. This facilitates a switching between breast- and bottlefeeding.

MAM Drinking Cups
Yes. Thanks to their patented valve, the MAM drinking cups always remain leaktight when they should. At the same time, babies can drink from them with ease.
However, after drinking a few residual drops may still be left in the drinking spout. If the child shakes the cup forcibly, this small residual amount of liquid may escape – but no more liquid than this will.
Be careful with fizzy drinks: They impair the leakproofness of the cup. Do not pour any hot liquids (over 40°C) into the drinking cup!
All components of the smart Learn to Drink Cups can be cleaned very easily: Either with water, mild cleaning agent and a soft sponge or in the top compartment of the dishwasher. In the dishwasher, the patented valve with the small hole is fixed on one of the bars.
Individual components in the MAM drinking cups can be discoloured by food.
Yes, all MAM drinking cups are made from shatterproof materials.
