    Default Medela bottles & nipples - styles different than 2 years ago - are they compatible?

    i am looking at the medela bottles and notice the styles and even nipples seem to be different than 2 years ago..

    we have this style http://tinyurl.com/ycxpv4n

    now the bottles look like this http://tinyurl.com/y9ejqn4

    are the old bottles, nipples, discs, etc. compatible with the new ones? we used nuk nipples with the "old" bottles but now it looks like medela has a new "wide based" nipple.

    I think I read that you just need the new adapter rings if you want to use the new medela nipples, so I think you should be able to use your old nipples and rings on the new bottles if you want. Is that what you are wanting to do?

    we have old and new medela bottles. The nuk nipples won't fit on the new tops, the base isn't wide enough. We also found that although the old and new tops seem to fit on the opposite bottle, they tend to leak. We just try to be aware of which top we put where!

    I never used NUK nipples....
    But...I have interchanged my old and new Medela bottles for pretty much everything...
    I have even used them on my pump...They work fine for me...
