  • Every bottle brush I've come across has a nipple attachment that usually screws into the base of the bigger brush. Try that, if that doesn't work, get new nipples and stop putting cereal in the bottles. Your exact problem is why it's not recommended to add cereal to bottles.

  • Doctors don't spend much time studying nutrition. STOP doing that. IT is dangerous.

  • Have you tried boiling the nipples and then cleaning them while they are still hot and steamy?

  • Do not put cereal in a bottle. It is a major choking hazard.
    Try a bottle brush.

  • Baby should only be gaining one pound per month. Cereal actually DELAYS gain! And cereal in the bottle is a choking hazard.

  • I can't believe a doctor would tell you this, if your baby is old enough for solids, then you need to feed the cereal apart from the formula, Do you not put the nipples in warm soapy water as soon as you use them? This is a very dangerous practice, if you don't believe us google it and see what it says.
