  • we use dr brown because the nipple is strong so in theory i could still nurse her after she got out of the NICU . didnt happen but she likes the bottles and i never switched to any other kind. we never had a problem with gas or anything! i pump and bottle all my BM so she still gets BM stupid nicu nurses ruined her nursing but thats a different story! lol they are pretty pricey but totally worth it if u have a baby with gas problems! my cousin LOVES them she wont use anything else!

  • Playtex Drop-ins. We loved them! they were easy to use, easy to clean and they were by far the best we tried!

  • Dr Browns! we had issues with gas and fussiness and it looked like colic was coming so we switched to soy formula and Dr Browns bottles and she turned into a different baby!

  • Playtex Drop-Ins! They simulate breastfeeding, you can squeeze the bag to get all the air out, the bags come pre-sterilized, they reduce colic, they are definitley the best bottles I would have to say. We have never had issues with colic or gas.

  • I second that they are easy to clean, you just have to throw the bag in the trash and wash the bottles and nipples in soapy hot water.

  • I LOVED the Doc Brown bottles. My son was born 6 weeks premature, and he was ab;e to drink from them better than any other bottle. He never had gas, I rarely even had to burp him.
