    Has anyone else had this problem with tommee tippee bottles one day we noticed one of zacoiyas bottles has gone REALLY skinny so we set it aside and didnt know if it still held the same amount etc... but by the next day it was back to normal size :shrug::shrug:

    Yes! We've found this. Goes skinny where it goes inwards in middle of bottle if makes sense. I thought it might be where I've squeezed the bottle to screw it up but don't usually hold it there due to the water being scolding hot. Odd!

    The bottoms of my bottles have popped out. Sent some back to Tommee Tippee and they said that the likely cause is boiling water being put in the bottles and that they do not advise this.

    I've always done it aswell, i don't think they can realistically expect people not to. Send them an e-mail telling them your problem, they'll reply telling you about boiling water in bottles etc. Reply to that saying you don't do that and they'll send you a pre-paid envelope and you'll get some nice new bottles for nothing :).

    Yeh I noticed this too!! I think it's just like a vacuum action when boiling water has been added to the bottle and then the lid is put on! :shrug:

    Yep, I've had this as well with a couple. They seem to shrink inwards when I take them out of the basin of cold water (to cool them down after making) but then expand again when I put them in a jug of hot water to warm up for a feed.
