We only tried Tommee Tippe with both our girls, but have not had any problems. DD1 nursed for 15 months until she self weaned. I am a teacher so she had summer and breaks with no bottles and went back and forth great. She loved them so much that she continued to use the bottles for another 3 months until she figured out a sippy cup. DD2 is only two months, but so far no issues and I've been back at work for 2 weeks.

Re: Breast-like bottle reviews

My baby couldn't latch onto the breast flow bottles. He does love the regular medela bottles. Yet, he has decided he will not drink formula anymore, so I don't use them anymore.

Re: Breast-like bottle reviews

We had horrible nipple confusion with my first. I couldn't even fix it with the finger feeder, my supply never recovered. So I'm kind of obsessed with latch protecting bottles. I might try the Medela Calma.... the breastflow bottles worked great, but they were leaky and took a lot of getting used to for the care giver.

Re: Breast-like bottle reviews

What helped my LO's latch tremendously was Medela Calma bottles. Expensive but worth it. It helped a lot because he was irritated with my slow flow. LOVED them and now I use Dr. Brown's and his latch is still good, we had him on calma for about 9 weeks. I still can't EBF and I pump alot because I don't make enough, but I attribute that to one of the things that really helped his latch!

Re: Breast-like bottle reviews

I had the opposite issue in a sense- I needed to find a breast-like bottle to get baby back ONTO the breast due to a NICU stay. I credit the Breastflow bottles for teaching my son how to latch correctly. Between switching to the Breastflow and stopping a medication, DS2 was EBF within 2-3 weeks. It was amazing. It's been 2 months and he's doing great. I gave him a bottle last night because he was inconsolable it seemed and I was out of ideas and he had no idea what to do with it lol. He managed to get an ounce or so before I took it away and I was able to get him to nurse. It was really cute lol.

Tommee Tippee worked okay for us as well. I have a couple Calma's and I tested them for Medela when they were still in the concept phase but I just can't make them work. The nipple part is just too long and too stiff. DS1 (who never nursed) and DS2 both gagged on it and refused it. So if anyone wants 2 calma nipples let me know lol

I'm interested in the calma nipples, but if OP wants them she can have them since its her thread. My LO had early latch issues and she has rarely gotten a bottle because I'm afraid that it will ruin her latch again. I stay home with her now so it hasn't been a big deal, but I'm currently looking for work so she'll need to drink from something. I haven't been very successful in my job hunt though so maybe by the time I find something she'll be big enough to use a cup.
