    Default Medela Calma Bottles

    Anyone who long-ish term breastfed had trouble weaning to bottle feeding and tried these?

    Medela Calma bottles. They aren't their traditional ones, they are the newer expensive ones ($29 from target)

    I'm still having trouble getting DS 6.5 months to take a bottle and at $29 I'd say thee are probably quite good, but it's obviously a lot to fork out for one bottle when I've already wasted so much money on other different bottles.

    I tried the Calma teat and ds didn't like them. Pigeon bottles were the only ones he'd take! It's usually a case of trying a few before settling on one. Each bub is different

    I've tried pigeon and he's not interested or the regular Medela or Avent, or tommee tippee closer to nature or tommee tippee slim teat ones

    I fully breastfeed DS ( 9 months) and when I had to go back to work I needed him to take a bottle, I tried so many brands I would give them to him and he would cry and pull a face, I started with water on them, he eventually took to the water only in the bottle so I knew he could do it.. I was freaking out he cry the time but he was fine as soon as I left, and he always nuby drink bottles where they have to suck to get anything out !
