Thread: Favorite bottle for the baby that does both?

  1. #1

    Default Favorite bottle for the baby that does both?

    I need to relearn all about bottles What's your favorite? (And baby's, hee hee)

    Some of the new ones sound cool. I personally was not a fan of Dr Browns because *cough*cough* they're a pain to clean My hubby's going to have his hands full with two preschoolers and a newborn when I'm at work, adding that extra layer of complexity is not in his best interest if I can avoid it. But I don't really want to try every one on the market either

    I like the Dr. Browns, they are great for refluxers.

    Born Free pricey and we had major spit up with them.

    The one that has worked best for my DS are the Playtex Premium Drop Ins with a slow flow nipple.

    Both of mine liked the playtex drop ins, I switched to latex nipple with DS because I think they'll last better. But it's a slow flow nipple.

    we used the evenflo glass bottles with slow flow nipples for DS. For DS I use the same bottles but the brown (latex?) nipples as they were even slower flow.

    If I am here I am covered in baby (probably two) and fighting for control of the keyboard.

    Family beds are awesome

    Wondering if you have PPD? Take the screening and see your doctor. You deserve to feel better.

    Both of my kids (both breastfed at home and bottlefed at daycare with EBM) have used the Playtex drop-ins with silicone (clear) nipples... the "natralatch" kind.

    I have used the slow-flow with both of them, until around 6 months of age... I just recently switched DS to the medium-flow nipples, because he was playing around during his feedings at daycare, and taking too long. Daycare can only keep his bottle warmed for him and attempt to give it to him for 1 hour after it's initially warmed... he was taking longer than that for his feedings, so to avoid wasting my milk, I switched to the medium flow, and that did the trick! No more messing around during feedings.

    I'm gonna jump on the Playtex Drop-In wagon!! Less parts to wash equals a winner in my book!! I don't like that it creates extra waste, but we rinse and recycle the liners.
