  • I always used the tall/thin Playtex Vent Air and never had a problem with leaking (the short/fat ones were bad at that though). I never used any other type of bottle.

  • My daughter was super picky, so when we started using the drop in system (Evenflo, I think) she hated them. So we switched, then switched again, then again, and ended up with Vent Air. I know what you mean, how the numbers wear off, but the reason for that is they don't have BPA or whatever it is in them any more. I know it sucks, but we used to use one bottle to measure the water, heat it, then dump it in the Vent Air, it actually worked really, really well. And those were the only bottles my DD actually liked. LOL

  • The only ones that worked well for my kids were the Gerber bottles. There's no school like the old school. ;)

  • I used the playtex drop ins too. They make life SO much easier! The nipples are closer to boobies too . . . it was the easiest for the transition from breast to bottle.

  • Playtex drop-in's - and you can find the generic liners at Target and Walmart!
