    Default Replacing teats

    Hi all. Just wanted people's opinion. I'm bottle feeding my one month old twins and I initially had them on dr browns bottles but found a lot of formula was leaking from the edges of the teat so I swapped to pigeon. They were great initially but I'm finding they are doing the same thing. I wash them with warm water and microwave sterilise after each use so not sure if I'm doing something wrong? Is it the teats? Thanks in advance xx

    Just checking that you're pushing the teat all the way through until they kind of pop out?

    The tommee tippee closer to nature teats are staged 1-3 with 1 being for newborns and has a slower flow. Have you checked if the ones you are using are staged?

    Are you using pigeon bottles too or the teats on another bottle?

    What bottles are you using? I've put pigeon on medela and pigeon bottles and the cheap big w bottles with no leaks. Are you doing the collar up enough?

    This from me too. My DS2 6.5mths is still on stage 2 as he leaks a lot out while feeding too.
