  • The Dr. Brown bottle worked really well with my son. They are kinda pricey so we just bought 5, and i wash them alot.

  • I had the same problem... I tried all the bottles out there. I finally bought the cheap gerber ones and she took them.

    Are you trying to give your baby the bottle? My daughter refused the bottle from me completely - of course - she wanted to drink from me. My husband gave her the bottle and I left the house. It took 6 hours but she was finally hungry enough to give up and take the bottle.

  • Have you tried Adri Natural Nursers? It's what I used for all 3 of my children who were breastfed (but took bottles occasionally). Here's the link- They work GREAT. I definitely recommend it.

  • NUK, orthodontic. My dd just started using them and LOVES THEM!!!!!!!!! They dont give her better than Dr. Browns for the gas imo. You can get them at walmart. Just make sure you dont get the size nipple for his age.....the hole are made bigger. Just keep the ones that come with it. GL!

  • I used Dr. Browns! DD really loved them..She liked them alot from day one! Well, the First week or 2 she was using the baby bottles they give you after you have the baby, The glass ones! and she did really good on thoses from day one! I breastfeed un until 3 months but I think Dr. Browns Really help with Everything from Colic to Gas!
