Re: For those bottle feeders

MAM makes a safe plastic bottle that lets air in, it's like the ventaire bottles so the nipples don't collapse.
I've seen them in Target. Sassy MAM

Re: For those bottle feeders

I like the cheapness of the Evenflo vs. investing in more Dr. Browns (when they make them BPA free.) But I'm still in the test period of if the non-vented will hurt his reflux much. We tried the fast flow Dr. Bwn nipples but they are really soft and collasped immediately. DS is getting used to letting air in but I think the slow flow is killing him. He gets bored quick. I'll try not doing the caps too tight. And then break down and buy faster flowing nipples.

SIDEnote: Dr. Brwns were getting on my last nerve with the leaking. MY GOSH, once out of every 3 times, LEAK, LEAK, LEAK. So annoying. I'm happy to be rid of them.

Here's hoping the reflux stays at bay.

Thanks for the feedback.

What nipples are you using now?

Re: For those bottle feeders

Yeah. I was think about selling them. I feel a little bad about that...with the BPA and all but I also think, it's up to the family to decide what they want to do for their child bottle-wise. We started out with level 1 and then moved to level 3 at 6 mo...not thinking that it would cut our feeding time to a quarter!

Can I just say... if you're going to sell the bottles at least put a note saying why. Some moms may not know about the BPA issue and may unwittingly buy these bottles thinking they're getting a great bottle for cheap.

It's only ethical to let people know... for instance I was not aware of the issue with Dr. Brown's bottles until the last couple of days. I currently live in Korea so it wasn't on the news here (but I buy a lot of my baby products online or from the U.S.).
