Have any of you ladies put rice cereal or oatmeal in LO's bottles yet? I was told that we could to help LO with reflux issues and spitting up. We've been doing it on occasion but have stopped doing it regularly because every time we poked a hole into the nipples or have gone up a size, it's been a nightmare. We use the Dr. Browns bottles which we love and LO has had no issues with. When I bought the size 2 nipples, the flow was still too slow with 2 tsp. of rice cereal mixed into 4.5 oz of milk. So then DH or I would poke a hole with a pin into the nipple and we can't seem to get the darn hole big enough for the flow to be consistent but not too big that the milk just comes out so fast, DS is choking on it. DS ends up choking on how fast it's coming out, so we have to constantly pull the bottle out of his mouth and it makes the feedings a mess and he gets so angry.
I am thinking maybe there is another brand and style of bottles/nipples that may be better, once rice cereal starts to become more regular for DS. Does anybody have any suggestions on different bottles brands to try that are similar to a Dr. Browns style, but have had success with them, when using rice cereal or oatmeal to mix with formula?
