For those bottle feeders

Posted this in Green families...reposting here.

I just bought the Evenflo, (slow flow silicone) glass bottles, switching from Dr. Browns Toxic bottles . I have a 6 mo. old and he's gotten used to drinking faster. I slit the hole bigger on top but the nipples still collapse.

Any experience with the fast flow nipples? Do they collapse too just because there's no air in the bottle? Don't want to waist my money.

You should never cut bottle nipples. It causes them to degrade faster and its possible a piece could become dislodged and choke your LO. By the faster flow nipples instead and throw the cut ones out.

Dr Browns makes glass bottles, too...in case you didn't know! And, do NOT cut your bottle nipples...throw those away, and get some medium flow. Most of the different nipples are interchangeable between brands!

Sometimes if the nipple ring is tightened too tight it doesn't allow the air to pass through because the little air holes are crushed. At 6mo. my LO was using the faster flow nipples, so I would definitely get some.

Re: For those bottle feeders

playtex has a nipple that has an "X" shaped slit in it instead of a tiny hole...

They are not vented, so you have to remove the bottle from the babes mouth. It will release back. But, that is the negative about a non vented bottle.

Re: For those bottle feeders

i had the same problem when trying to find a substitute for my dr browns bottles. we tried the evenflow and the nipples always collapsed even with the fast flow nipples. we ended up with the playtex drop ins because they are bpa free and the nipples dont collapse and they are inexpensive. we dont trow away the liners after each use, they are still good for multiple bottles. we usually can use them 20 times before we need a new liner!

This happens to my LO too. She is just used to it now. She will release the nipple for a second to inflate it and then start drinking agin. It does not seem to bother her. Also, we are using the doctor brwon nipples with the bottles. They have a y cut nipple that is a really fast flow.

I have those evenflo glass bottles too. When DS took a bottle I had that issue too. I got different nipples for them eventually and it worked better.
