playtex drop-ins

Do any of you use these? We use born free bottles but i think i want to try these for an upcoming 10 day camping adventure to help with clean up. Also have you tried the target brand drop-ins? Do they work as well? Thanks!

Re: playtex drop-ins

  • We used drop-ins for a while, but ultimately I got sick of buying (and wasting) liners all the time and squishing out the air. I probably wouldn't try a new bottle on a camping trip though. Cleanup seemed to be easy in theory, but there always seemed to be formula on the bottle part of it every time anyway so everything got washed after one use like regular bottles anyhow plus the addition of adding a liner.

  • We use them and like them a lot.  I'm too lazy to wash all the parts of the BreastFlow which we were using for the first 8 weeks. 

    The target drop-ins work fine, but the measurements are completely off because the playtex brand liners expand.  For awhile I was using the target brand liners and making the formula in another bottle, but I decided that using the name brand was worth the extra money because I didn't have to wash another thing. 

    LO likes the brown rubber nipples better than the clear ones.

  • I love using my playtex drop in! Super easy and all you have to wash is the nipple!

    Sounds like a fun trip!!!

  • DD also only likes the brown nipple!

    Can you tell me more about squeezing the air out???? NO idea we were supposed to do that!!!!!!!

  • I've used drop ins (and the Target liners) for all three kids with no issues.  I've never squeezed air out of the liner so I don't think that's necessary.  But, I would not switch bottles just for a camping trip.

  • About the air... Linus is very gassy so it was squeeze the air out of them or not use them. I could tell a difference in him when we didn't. I never had a problem with the liner coming out of place, just found it a nuisance. Again, though, he has gas and tummy problems. We've switched to dr. browns because of it..
