has anyone found a bottle (for newborn) out there they really like? I'm mostly using Platex VentAire, but the nipples that go with them are either too slow or too fast, no happy medium. It's very frustrating for the baby and for me because she's either not getting anything or getting too much at a time and choking.

  • I used the Gerber NUK system and they have about 3 stages for their nipples, they might even work with your current bottles. The nipples range from slow, medium and fast flow........I'd give that a try.

  • I used a Walmart generic brand called Parent's Choice. It worked just fine plus it's cheaper.

  • We had that problem with the Vent Aire bottles too- but, I love the actual bottles. I bought Evenflo medium nipples only in packages of 3 at the store ($1.99), and replaced all of the nipples- worked great!!

  • I used the platex ventaire and still do. I just cut the slow nipples alittle to open them up and that worked really good. Then you can use the fast flow when they get better.

  • We use Nuk bottles there is a slow,medium and fast flow nipple and sippie nipples for later. These bottles also mimic breastfeeding so are more natural for feeding and transition from breast to bottle.

  • AVENT!!! They have nipples with certain age groups..like stages with more holes each time for faster flow :) They are the best bottles!

  • I use Dr Browns and I love them! They have different stage nipples to control the flow. They also do a good job with preventing gas.
