The only nipple you should buy
If you talk to lactation consultants and speciailsts, they will all tell you to buy this nipple. The flow is slow, so your baby doesn’t get addicted to the bottle! Our baby has been alternating between the bottle and breastfeeding for a month now, both are still going strong! They sell larger flow nipples, but as “The Womanly Art of Breastfeeding” says, it isn’t as if your breast’s flow increases during your child’s life, why should the bottle? Let the baby eat slow!
best nipple for breastfeeding
I tried atleast 10 nipples/bottles before finding this one. I was breastfeeding my newborn but she was going to need to take a bottle on occassion when I was not available. After having her choke and sputter with many different nipple and crying and being frustrated for atleast 3 weeks, I found a dad whose wife had similar problems. He recommended these nipples. It worked like a charm. She took it on the 2nd attempt. It is very difficult for breastfeeding babies to use a bottle that is flowing too fast. I dont know what we would have done without this nipple. She did quickly move up to the level 1’s (around 3 mo) and to the level 2 around 5 mo, but this made taking a bottle possible for her.
perfect for my newborn
My baby girl was full-term. She is a slow eater and with the stage one nipple the milk was constantly spilling out of the sides and bottom of her mouth. I couldn’t find these preemie nipples in ANY of the local stores and I needed them right away. I paid extra for next day delivery and so glad I did…worth it! Now she has no problems. 🙂 (BTW, I first tried “Playtex Vent-Aire”, as recommended by my lactation consultant, and it wasn’t noticeably slower to me.)
Great flow for preemies
These nipples worked great for my preemie. He was struggling with the Level 1 nipples – milk would come out the sides of his mouth and he was choking a lot. The preemie nipples let the perfect amount of milk out so that he wasn’t overwhelmed.
I love Dr. Brown’s. Dr. B’s bottles really help my baby from getting gas or spitting up. My newborn was still having a little trouble with bottles using the level 1 nipples due to the milk coming out too quickly. I switched to the preemie nipples and haven’t had a single problem since.
Perfect flow for breastfed newborns
These nipples are perfect for breastfed babies taking their first bottles because the flow is slower than most Level 1 nipples. Highly recommended!
Must-have for parents of preemies.
Great for a preemie. Very easy to use, comfortable for baby and easily transitioned from the nipples used in the NICU.
