playtex drop in nipple question

Do they make the playtex drop-in nipples for thicker liquids? I know that they have fast flow, but I need something like cross cut. My son has acid reflux and he has to have 1 tablespoon per once, and that is pretty thick lol...I've been having to make the holes bigger myself but I don't like to do that. The flow isn't consist enough everytime.

  • I don't think they make exactly what you are talking about. Is the fast flow too big? They make a medium flow silicone nipple and I believe a variable flow one as well.

  • Yes they do. It's called variable flow. I use them for my son as well since he too has acid reflux.

  • variable flow, but I also made the hole in the fast flow nipple alittle bigger and that worked great!
