  • Are you using the Playtex Drop In System or Ventaire? Try the Playtex Drop In System but use the brown colored nipple...not the clear colored one. I don't understand the difference, but both my daughter and a baby I babysit prefer the brown ones. (Slow Flow)

  • Until a baby gets the rhythm and flow of things and it can take several weeks then you have to pull it out and put it back in. We had this same problem when we switched to faster flowing nipples. They get used to it. Just give it some time.

  • I used the playtex bottle that you put the bags in. It reduces colic and definately use the bottle with the brown nipple. Is more natural to them.

  • The best nipple is the one attached to your breast. Have you given breastfeeding a try?

  • I used the playtex vent bottles. There really isn't a nipple that will help at this age because what she is doing is natural, in a few more weeks, the problems should reduce drastically.
