“Pronto Bottle is liberating parents globally from the hassle, inconvenience, uncertainty and general sense of compromise associated with bottle feeding rituals today.”
Shannon Gilleland, Founder, Pronto Bottle
85% of parents spend an hour a day washing, sterilising and pre-preparing baby bottles before they leave the house. They carry 2.5kgs around with them in their nappy bag because of all the pre-filled bottles they have to carry, and if parents run out of bottles, there is no solution to prepare bottles while out.
Meet Pronto bottle. The worlds first self-sterilising baby bottle. Developed after three years of research, including investigations into sterilisation technology within hospitals, dental surgeries and consumer products, it’s the first baby bottle that sterilises itself and the water that’s added to it.
Pronto is the very first bottle that can sterilise itself, can be carried empty and prepared anywhere you can find drinkable tap water. Even on a plane… though that’s a mute point at the moment! For the very first time it only takes 30 seconds to prepare a bottle and it can all be done in home or out.

Beyond selling product, Pronto exists to make modern parenting more intuitive. No longer will we settle for the hassle, inconvenience, uncertainty and general sense of compromise associated with parenting, and bottle feeding rituals.
Smart, Safe, Sustainable Parenting is our brand truth.
SMART because we are technology-driven (UV-C light), convenient (light, fast, easy to use) and dependable. The convenience that our products deliver make the experience of parenthood more manageable.
SAFE because we’re removing the need to pre-boil water to sterilise it, having a glass bottle instead of plastic, reducing the chances of babies being exposed to micro plastics.
SUSTAINABLE because we’ve developed a product with greater longevity, with vision for a circular economy, to deliver greater sustainability and impact in the world.
This is true for Pronto and for our future product development pipeline.
