Breastflow HANDS DOWN were the best. They only cost around 5 dollars a bottle and they also prevent nipple confusion which can happen with a baby this young. Breastflow mimic the "let down" reflux. So baby does not get impatient when switching back and forth. Its epic. Loved em.
I have used avent with all 3 of my kids, and have had no problems with them at all.
Quoting Marissa[+1]:" i have the calma one. the flow is too fast, and he gets mad when i try and give it to him lol"
Well fudge :) thanks for letting me know.
Quoting Marissa[+1]:" lo is 5 weeks on monday, and refuses to drink my milk from a bottle. i have a medela one, but the nipple ... [snip!] ... is too big/long. what bottle do you recommend for a newborn that has a slow flow and small nipple? i also have playtex bottles."
Mine also didn't like those Medela ones. Too bad because they were sooo expensive!! I use the Playtex VentAire ones and never had any issues. Used slow flow nipples for a long time, then moved up to medium and then fast.
Gerber Naturals - they are the most affordable ones I use and my girl doesn't mind them.
But I really enjoy the Nuk bottles as well.

[snip!] ... 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."</blockquote>
I've used te ventaire ones since DD was a preemie. I love them! My lactation consultant recommended them cause they're closest to bf. also their tongue has to go under the nipple. Try getting him to suck in your finger first then put the bottle in.
