    Definitely pigeon teats. They fit on your Avent bottles too. Best change we made on professional advice.

    There are so many, hard to know which one will work until you try it. Pigeon have a new one out that is supposed to mimic breastfeeding more accurately. I haven't tried it. We currently use mostly just the Nuk teats on various bottles, slow flow, which seem fine. But I have just bought a medela one that was expensive and mimics breastfeeding (they have to suck, no flow), have only used it twice and it is a bit different so DD has not been that convinced by it but did work it out. Might take a bit of using or we could just go back to the Nuk ones (I just liked the idea of no confusion between breast and bottle as I have just ditched my nipple shield at 6 weeks).

    I use medela small teats and I find the bottle has less wind in them as well and ds is happy with it

    I have the medela calmer teat as well but my son hates it and screams the house down

    As my daughter is 6 month, is it possible that she has developed colic or reflux as she was fine up until recently?

    Are you still using a slow teat? Maybe she needs a faster flow now? Or even increased amount of milk? She might be hungry... Or teething? I'm just guessing cause reflux and colic are things bubs usually grown out of, not into...

    I yried the expensive ones (closer to nature and tommee tippee) and then Tamtam told me about pigeon and went to get a couple. HUGE difference. Dd stopped choking, didn't lose as much out her mouth and feeds took less time.

    There are several things you're looking for with the right teat.
    A stuck swallow breathe motion. If they are going suck suck suck...swallow and big gasp then the teat is probably flowing too fast. If there is milk escaping from the corners of the mouth is still too fast.
    Too slow is if they collapse the teat. You can adjust this too by loosening this collar... this allows a faster flow as well.
    Pigeon or really any teat that is long and soft is best. Even the cheapie happy baby brand are better than some common popular brands. You can get them in big w or coles have their own too.
    Sounds like this choking etc is because the teat is too fast. Have you tried a Y flow? This is like a variable flow where bub can control the speed of milk for them self. Doesn't work for all babies but might be worth a try.

    I use Medela Calma. Bub alternates between bottle and breast feeding and we have had no problem using this bottle. Its designed to work the same way as when a baby breast feeds so it is difficult for the baby to get fast flow.
