Nuk Bottles

how many of you used the Nuk bottles and nipples? Did you like them? I used them with my second child and I loved them and so did my little one. I was just wondering how popular they are.

  • LOVED Nuk bottles. LOVED them. Had zero issues with them. IF I were ever going to have more kids I'd try first to use those again (but I'm not having more babies!).

  • My son went through 7 different types of bottles/nipples before we finally found the "right" one for him. It was the Nuk bottles that he liked best. I loved them and I only ever had one that leaked.

  • Nuk nipples *may* not be best for breastfed babies. Certainly some babies will transition fine with them, however, something to consider is:
    * Ultrasound studies revealed that round nipples with a broad base, as opposed to the "orthodontic nipples" with flattened tips, best facilitate tongue and jaw motions similar to sucking at the breast
    * Although orthodontic nipples such as the Gerber Nuk are frequently recommended for use by nursing mothers, they seem to teach the baby to retract his tongue and hump it up in the back of his mouth during feeding.
    * This creates problems with breastfeeding, since babies must flatten their tongues and extend them forward to get milk from the breast. In addition to reducing milk transfer, this type of tongue movement can cause severely abraded nipples.

  • I tried giving my DD a nuk bottle, she wasn't having it. She rarely gets bottles but when she does, she prefers round nipples.
    I do have a nuk bottle that has a round nipple with ridges for teething and has an opening similar to a beginners sippy cup which she loves. I can't remember what the bottle was called, I just know its a nuk bottle.
