Re: Best bottle

YDD would only ever take Tommy Tippee, and then only reluctantly.

Re: Best bottle

3 1/2 years ago, DD used the Medela ones fine then I switched over to Tommee Tippee since i was BF and TT was new and supposedly similar to breastshape. I had no problem feeding her with that bottle but MIL and DH said they had a hard time getting her to feed. So i switched over to Born Free (there were times she would spit up a lot so i wanted to minimize amount of air she swallowed) but DH loathed washing that bottle and all the parts. So for this baby I am going to try the Kiinde system. I also got 2 free Nuk bottles from registry and OB's office and it has a "hole" vent in the nipple so not as many parts as Born Free. haven't tested it out so I have no reviews on the newer ones.

Re: Best bottle

Do have problems with these leaking I just bought a bunch of them and they leak out the bottom. I checked all the pieces and was very careful when putting them back together and I'm still having the problem

Re: Best bottle

Tommee tippee and avent naturals are all my DD would take when she was refusing bottles. I actually had to hold her, rock her, and have a loud white noise machine going just to settle her down enough to take it. I know a lot of people say they won't take from mom, but I have also heard if they only associate feedings with mom that you should try. GL. It can be so frustrating but they will take it eventually if you keep trying

At support group we tell people whichever one your baby will take. I know not helpful. We do suggest putting a request out among friends (such as facebook) seeing if anyone has a bottle you can borrow and try without spending a lot of money. In general we suggest wide mouth bottles/nipples that require a wide open latch and the slowest flow nipple.

Yes, if you have a faster let down (I did) the faster flow could help.

We had a big struggle getting mine to take a bottle. The intermittent bottle by mom approach really helped us ultimately. We tried a bunch of nipples, but that wasn't the problem, really. I just switched back and forth from bottle to breast really casually during feedings. Sheet about 3 days straight of this, she took some at the dcp and then over the next week it got to where there was no fuss.
