I am EP that is having major issues with my bottles. We started out with Avent and Nuby bottles, both ended up being to fast for my lo and after doing some research I decided to try the Playtex Natralatch silicone nipples slow flow. They have to be used with the Playtex Nurser bottles with drop-ins. We started using them a week ago and they worked great, flow was perfect and no problems. Then yesterday things started going awry!! The drop-ins started falling out of the bottles. I have lost about 12 oz of BM total now from this happening and am about to have a nervous breakdown, just ask my husband
This is so frustrating because we don't know why this is happening. I tried heating the bm in a separate container and then pouring it in the drop-in and it slipped out again this morning. I tried again and the second time heated it in water that wasn't as warm and it worked. Last night I tried using a brand new drop-in and when I tightened the lid and picked the bottle up the drop-in just basically fell out the bottom??? The only thing that I can think of is that the bm is possibly too warm and may be causing the ring of the drop-in to collapse in on itself?? I always check the bottle before giving it to my lo and it's usually just right temperature wise, obviously. I usually just place it in a warm bowl of water to heat but in the past my husband has heated water on the stove and warmed the bottle with no problems so I can't understand why it would be causing a problem now. We weren't really paying attention to how hot the water was before but I know I was making sure that the stuff coming out of the tap was fairly hot and we hadn't had any problems until yesterday??
Could it be the drop-ins are faulty?? I am using from the same box that I started from so I don't think that is the problem and when I seat them in the bottle they seem to fit securely. I tried contacting playtex but of course they aren't in until Monday and I need to feed my baby now!! I am terrified to feed him again because if I lose more bm I am going to be so so upset!! I would just go buy a different bottle if anyone had a recommendation. But, again, these were fine until yesterday so what the heck?? We are perplexed and any input would be greatlly appreciated!!
