    I have the following:Playtex ventair-ok but takes forever for DD to drink it with a level 1 nipple.Dr. Browns-love them hut DD drinks from them too fast with a level 1 nipple.98 cent Walmart bottles-have worked great with level 1 nipple. They have been our happy medium.

  • I get the Doctor Brown's bottles with the level 1 nipple since I am breastfeeding too. I had Nuk but the flow is too fast and I do not like that you have to buy Nuk brands to fit Nuk bottles... which is why I didn't get Avent either.

    Although the Doctor Brown's says it reduces gas, I still burp after every ounce.

    Dr. Brown's sells a "preemie" nipple. We have Dr. Brown's bottles, too, and after doing some reading, I picked up some preemie nipples at BRU because it's a slower flow which is a little closer to breastfeeding.

  • We use Platex nursers with the disposable drop ins. We started with Advent bottles but found they caused our son to be gassy and he finished them too quickly, resulting in excess spitting up, even with the slow flow nipples. We have had good results with the Platex.

    We use both the Playtex Nurser Drop ins and the VentAir bottles. Both work really good for DS. We tried using Tommee Tippie, but the nipple flow was too fast for DS and he tended to be real gassy with them despite double burping.

  • We've only used the Tommee Tippee anti-colic bottles because she took to them so well! I like how wide the nipple is because she can latch to it like she does when BFding

  • Tommee Tippee, but she's only used them a few times.  So far, so good.

    We've had good success with Dr. Browns and a level 1 nipple. Our LO had gas and lots of problems spitting up, but both have improved since we started using them.

  • Honestly, majority of the time we just use the bottles that came with my Ameda pump with a variety of brands of standard nipples and a variety of flow levels.

    To strengthen ds's mouth muscles we use slow flow or Nuby variable flow nipples to start with since he has to suck harder and he's more motivated in the beginning of a feed and then switch to the faster flowing/easier to suck nipples so he can get the nutrition.  We don't do this at the bedtime/nighttime feeds for obvious reasons.

    I loved the Playtex nursers with the drop ins for my older two but this lo has too much difficulty latching on to those so we use them only when we have to.

    I also have 3 Walmart cheapies that work great for bringing the day's feedings of breastmilk to daycare or for making 6 oz of formula for two 3oz servings.

    Tommee Tippee and Born Free.  I liked the Dr. Brown's but the level 1 nipple flow was too fast for DD.

  • Playtex Ventairs. DD does not take them well.

    Avent Naturals have worked great.
