anyone have any problems with dr. browns bottles?

Avent is giving my daughter really bad gas and it hurts her SO much. I bought a starter kit of dr. browns today because I've been told it helps a lot with gas. Has anyone had gas issues while their LO was using dr. browns?

  • We switched over actually to help the colic, and the gas also disappeared tremedously.

  • They leak like crazy if they tip over and have sooo many parts that have to be washed. Otherwise I like them. They did help my son when he was very little and having feeding difficulties. He also had less trouble with gas when I used them.

  • Unless you are using the glass bottles, Dr. Brown's are not PBH free. When I wasn't able to breast feed I used platex nursers with the liner.
