  • My ped. recomended Dr. Johnson's and it worked really well for us. They are just a little expensive, and there are lots of parts to them, but not too terribly difficult to deal with.

  • Something called A Boob bottle.... They hang there, no air get in them and they keep the milk at a constant temperature all day and night long.

  • We use the Nuk with the air vents in the nipple. Sorry I can't remember the name but they advertise them as breast shaped, they're not but they call them that and they really seem to work. But gripe water and on bad days infant gas drops are probly your best bet.
    And is it at all possible to have a question on here about feeding that does not come back to breastfeeding when you know the person was not asking about breastfeeding.

  • I used Tommee Toppee, I tried Avent but it kept leaking all over the place and you have to get it just right to get it to work 100%. Just a pain, the tommee toppee is my favorite, and it is great if you have to supplement breastfeeding. I breastfeed but I don't have enough milk anymore so I use the tommee toppee and she love it. I don't know if you are or aren't breastfeeding but either way, it's a great bottle. Hope it helps!

  • Dr Brown's FOR SURE. They have a vent system inside them that works wonders. They are worth the extra few bucks!!

  • My daughter had colic and it was hell. It was so bad that I had to burp her every quarter of a ounce. She got put on Enfamil Nurtimagen and you know she was a happy baby then. Yes the formula is expensive and it smells and the poop will too but it really works. Btw I tried all the formulas and the doctor recommended me that one.
