  • You can get the slow-flow nipples for most bottles.
    I really like the Evenflow Purely Comfi.

    You have to read on the box. They'll usually say if its slow, medium, or fast flow.

  • The Playtex Drop-Ins with the latex nipples are the only slow flow that are actually SLOW that I've found! The silicon nipples are too fast, I don't know what makes the difference between latex and silicon flows though.

  • I use the Playtex VentAire Advanced Wide bottles with the slow-flow silicone nipples. They aren't much different from the Playtex Drop-Ins slow-flow silicone, but they have more lines for air release. I find they work better. Personally, the cheap Evenflo colored bottles have a really fast slow-flow nipples and my son choked when I tried them with him. Plus they are too smal because he's used to the Playtex ones which are wider.

  • I use the playtex ventair bottles and the slow flow on those worked great. We have upgraded to the fast flow ones now.

  • I use the first years Breastflow bottles for my son, and they seem to be the ones he has the easiest time with. With a few of the other bottles I've tried he has ended up spitting out milk because it was flowing too fast.

  • Playtex drop-ins with the latex nipples are the slowest ones out there. Even now, at almost 11mo, my son prefers the slow latex nipples!
