  • You may have to try several types of bottles. Both of my boys were very picky when it came to the bottles that they liked. I have found that the breast flow bottles did not set well with my newest son. Good luck!

  • Try Playtex Drop Ins Nursers this is what I use. I also use the natural latch nipples. I did both from the beginning. Another tip I have heard really works is to feed breastmilk from a bottle, and drip some on the nipple right before you feed. Basically the longer you wait to initially introduce a bottle the harder it is. So if you are serious about it keep trying. Hope this helps.

  • I used the Playtex Nurser system too. That was the ONLY thing that worked with the Colic Master.
