When my son takes his bottle, the nipple kinda goes inside itself

Why does it do this? Are there certain nipples that do this? Is he sucking too hard?

  • ditto the other answers and that's called a collapsed nipple.

  • It needs to be vented somehow. Usually the bottles have vented nipples or a venting system so the air can get back in the bottle.

  • Do you have a drop in bottle?? Thats the one that does it with my son... Avent ones dont, but you have to have cover on very tight/very right or they leak very bad!!!
