Forget buying a pram or Moses basket… if you are going to buy one thing then this machine is it.
Today I am writing the Tommee Tippee Perfect Prep Machine Review because quite frankly… it saved my life and my marriage. I cannot praise this machine enough. My son is now 8 months old and I still use this machine every day. This machine was the best item I bought. If you are looking for the perfect gift to buy expectant parents … THIS IS IT!!!
Night Feeds = Night Terrors
When I first found out that I was going to be a mummy, forget the birth and contractions… the thing that scared me the most is the thought of the night feeds…. I am the type of person that cannot function without sleep and I wondered how I would ever cope. When you are pregnant, you do find that many people like to tell you how difficult being a parent is… I would constantly get told about how difficult night feeds are and how they would make up a bottle and then have to wait for it to cool down whilst the baby is screaming. I was truly terrified and then I was told about the wonderful invention that is the “Tommee Tippee Perfect Prep Machine”.
Review of The Tommee Tippee Perfect Prep Machine
Tommee Tippee is a well-known brand for baby feeding accessories, and it is one of the most loved and trusted brands in the baby world.
“So, what is this Machine,” you ask? Basically, this amazing machine makes up a ready-to-drink bottle in literally two minutes. Can you believe it… Impossible you say??? I thought the same but ITS TRUEEEEEEE.
This is a great buy for any parent who wants to make up a baby’s bottles quickly and accurately. It is aimed at parents who are ready to make the move to formula milk.
Tommee Tippee Perfect Prep Life Saving Machine.
Being a new mummy is hard enough but I honestly don’t know how I would have survived without this machine. What makes this machine even better is the fact that the filter system removes any impurities from the water and the first shot of water that is boiling kills any potential bacteria that could be in the formula milk. The filter does need replacing on average once every 3 months. My son is now nearly 8 months old and I still use this machine every day. I also use it to make up his porridge which is much easier than boiling the kettle then waiting for it to cool down. Another added benefit of this machine is that it fits any bottles therefore you do not have to use Tommee Tippee bottles with this machine. It also comes in a range of different colours to suit your decor. If you are nipping out, you can simply press the button, make up a bottle using the prep machine before you go and the milk stays fresh for 2 hours.
How does the Tommee Tippee perfect prep machine work?
This machine is so easy to use, literally fill, adust the dial and press the button and there you go… 2 minutes layer …. the perfect bottle ….
Here is our review and the prep machine instructions’;
Firstly you must fill the tank (storage pot) with cold water
Then select how many ounces you want to make up by using the dial, this, of course, is dependant on your baby
You then place the bottle on the stand and press the button and then a hot shot of boiling water will pour into the bottle, you then carefully remove it from the machine and add the formula milk scoops you then put it back on the stand and press the start button again, this is when the cold water (cool filtered water) makes the bottle the perfect temperature for your baby (always check the temperature before use). This machine is great if you are looking to give your baby a bottle of formula milk at the right temperature as quickly as possible. The idea behind the Tommee Tippee perfect prep machine is to make parents who want to formula feed lives easier.
Is The Tommee Tippee Perfect Prep Machine Safe?
Unfortunately, Tommee Tippee perfect prep machine has received some negative press lately but we absolutely love this product and believe that as long as you keep up to date with the replacement filters and keep on top of the maintenance of the cleaning of the perfect prep machine you should be absolutely fine.
This machine is an absolute Godsend for anyone that wants to make the middle of the night feed a little easier. I mean picture this, it is the middle of the night, you are having the best sleep of your life and you have a very hungry baby.
Without the machine, you have 2 choices breastfeed or boil the kettle for some boiled water, not only do you have to listen to your baby cry extremely loudly but you also have to make sure the hot water cools down to the right temperature before you can feed your baby.
We believe these machines are an absolute godsend for people with a newborn baby that is not breastfeeding or feeding breast milk. Formula powder is used with the Tommee perfect prep machine and the reviews we have from other parents are fantastic.
Which Tommee Tippee prep machine is the best?
The Tommee Tippee perfect prep machine comes in a range of different colours to suit your kitchen. Our review is based on our own personal experience of the prep machine.
Are bottle Prep machines good and worth the money?
If you would like to make a formula bottle in the middle of the night at the perfect temperature by simply pressing a button then this is the machine for you. This machine saves so much time and is the perfect machine for anyone who wants to get their baby fed with ease. This machine has been referred to as a “lifesaver” many times and we feel that this product is excellent and we would give this product a 5-star rating.
Can you use different bottles with the Perfect Prep Machine?
Another great thing about the Tommee Tippee perfect prep machine is that they can be used with other bottles too. As your little one grows up you may also like other formula bottles and that is no problem at all. The Tommee Tippee perfect prep ensures that you can make a bottle no matter what bottle you are using.
Maintaining the Perfect Prep Machine
Of course, with anything that involves food there as specific requirements in terms of cleaning. The Tommee Tippee perfect prep machine has pipes and water jug filters that will need replacing but these are very easy to replace.

Reviews from MyBump2Baby Mums
“I was a little worried about the perfect prep machine initially, I had heard that it was a fab machine but a nightmare for getting a build up of limescale in the prep machine, I was reluctant to purchase but I am so glad I did. This perfect prep machine literally saved my marriage and my sanity. My son was scream at night and I had to make sure I had a bottle ready in less than two minutes. The hot water and cool water literally created the perfect temperature. I personally cant speak highly enough of this machine. literally a god send” Claire 36, Grimsby
” I was unable to breastfeed which really upset me, when I lookedin to this perfect prep machine I was a little worried initially because it sounded like a lot of work, changing filters, burst pipes and I was so nervous in my mind to try this but i honestly can’t speak highly enough of this prep machine” Sarah 29, Dartford
“I struggled accepting that breast feeding just didn’t work for me initially and I began putting together a bottle of formula myself at night time but my little girl would literally scream in the night whilst we waited for the bottle to cool down. That was when my friend told me about the perfect prep machine and how a bottle of formula can be ready with a hot shot in less than two minutes. The ease I felt when using this product was fantastic and to get the perfect temperature for my hungry baby within a few minutes made me happy and made formula feeding a lot easier”. Aimee 25. longton.
“My best friend told me about the perfect prep machine before I was even planning on having children so I kne wit was a god send then. I always knew that breastfeeding wasn’t for me and I would be a bottle of formula mama. The only thing that worried me about formula was making sure my bottles and the perfect prep machine was mould free. I can recommend the perfect prep enough, everything about this machine is perfect from the hot shot to the times it takes it is literally the one thing I would never be without” Jess 34, Bradford
“My husband loved the closer to nature perfect prep machine because it meant that he could get involved, we were combo feeding so during the day my DS would have the boob and by night he would have the bottle and it meant that I could have a good rest each night” Gemma 26, Stockport
“Can’t speak highly enough of this for bottle feeding mums, it was a fantastic product for us, we even bought two, one for upstairs and one for downstairs” Laura 39, Ashford
“Perfect prep machine very quickly became a best friend of mine, when i decided i was bottle feeding, my husband works away and I was so worried about the night feeds as I don’t function well without sleep but this machine was literally my best friend whilst my hubby was away. I was twins so it meant that whilst one was up I would make both bottles and feed the other straight after so that I had a better nights sleep, i honestly don’t know how I would have coped without this machine, my husband didn’t understand how good it was until he came home from the rigs for 3 weeks and he was in charge of the night feeds, he loved the machine too, I actually used it until the twins were 12 months old and then I passed it on to my sister in law who also swears by the machine, since then she has passed it on to her sister and she loves it to” Kara 32, London
