i have the vent aire ones.. i guess all babies are different. have any of you tried the simply free ones? i just want a bottle with a small nipple, but not sure which brand(s) have them. any methods of getting your lo to drink out of a bottle for the first time?



me and s/o are going to dinner tomorrow night, and my mom's watching lo so i need him to take the bottle.

I used like every bottle out there when he was born cuz im a spaz like that and wanted to try them out. He liked avent & nuk when he first came home. But he started having alot of gas issues, So I did some research & found out about Dr. Browns bottles (I know alot of women dont like them cuz of cleaning) but it really did work! When he got older switched back to Nuk and he loved them. My only prob with them was he was younger he was a preemie and they have a faster flow than most. I plan on trying out avent or gumdrops when this baby gets here :)

The regular medela or the medela calma? I just bought 2 of the calmas they are $17 a piece but every mom I know who uses them loves them, so I hope they work. If not then back to our playtex drop ins.

i'm definitely going to try tommee tippee closer to nature bottles because i've read good reviews on them.
