    Default Bottle Recommendations

    Hi there, for medical reasons I have had to put bub (15 days) on formula. I am looking for recommendations for bottles. I have tried Avent (the 2 piece type and the wide neck type) and Closer to Nature and don't like either of them. They both seem to leak and give bub bad wind so any suggestions will be appreciated. Thanks!

    I'm still using Medela but will move on to Dr Browns very soon as bub has lots of wind and they are great for windy babies.

    Pigeon. The teats are great and soft for bubs.

    Where can you buy Mam bottles? They look cuter over the Browns 😁

    I didn't like the Dr Brown bottles. The extra pieces made cleaning and filling the bottles a pest & I don't think they helped with excess wind. I tried lots of bottles & found Pigeon to be the best. They're easy care, last well and as a unlooked upon bonus - slightly rare so never had issues of 'whose bottle is this' at get togethers or daycare! I got the tall narrow neck bottles which proved to be a bit of a pain to get formula in. At 2am my aim was particularly bad! Get the wide neck.

    I could have written this post . Agree with everything said.

    All mine have used different ones (lots of trial and error)
    #1 used nuk
    #2 used closer to nature
    #3 used mam (got them from big w)
    #4 uses Avent Natural (the new style, similar to closer to nature)

    He + Me = dd1 (July 2007), dd2 (July 2010), dd3 (August 2012), dd4 (May 2014)
    Embrace the chaos

    We use Mam anticolic, they are awesome! The teat is soft and a good shape for latching. None of the stores around me sell them but you can buy online. Target and Big W sell it so maybe look in your stores first
