Dr browns bottles help!!

My confession. I didn't have fancy pants bottles with ds.. I got parents choice bottles and used them. But a cousin gave me these and I have no clue how to put em together!!! They are sitting in my sink in hot water sterilizing ATM but how do I put em together????

It's not a huge huge deal since I plan on breast feeding if I can but it would be nice to know because then I can pump and let dh bottle feed lil bit when we get breast feeding established. I'd still like to have them together and ready to go in case I can't breast feed or need em for sis in law or mother in law to feed wee midge.

Help!! And don't laugh at me you silly heads :P

I used them but can't remember the drill. I think PP has it right though. I loved those bottles!

 Dr Browns bottles are a pain in the damn ass. Get some playtex nursers w the inserts and be done w it! My kids wouldnt even LOOK at a traditional bottle as babies!! Made faces and absolutely REFUSED to take them!

tan=brown. I LOVED Dr. Brown's bottles, my DD was BF but when she got a bottle she got those--they help with gassiness so much!  We got by on three four oz and three 8 oz bottles total since she only got a bottle every few days.

I'm not gonna toss em just because they may be annoying. I got em free from a cousin so ill at least try them. But if they do drive me nuts I will be getting the drop in ones instead. Thanks though

I loved those with my older son, they are good for refluxers. Make sure you use the little bottle brush they come with..reglar bottle brush won't clean the tan thing well.
