Right now I am using playtex nursers with drop in but my daughter spits up so much. She never spits up while on the breast. Which bottle would be best to try and reduce this?

Make sure your using the slowest.flow nipple.
How big are the bottles and how often is she getting them? Does the caregiver stop and burp every oz is it taking her about 20min to get through a bottle

Right now she is taking 4 oz and is still on the newborn nipple. I burp every ounce. She usually finishes in about 15 min or so.

Is there a reason why you are giving them?  Is it breastmilk or formula in the bottle?

At the advice of other's I tried Dr. Brown's with premie nipples and it helped my lo. Also make sure its not overfeeding though too, how often is she taking the 4 oz?

She is on breastmilk and will be 2 months old this Thursday. She usually is ready to eat every 3 hrs or so. Overnight she goes anywhere from 5 to 6 hrs until she wakes up to eat.

Every baby is different. You'll just have to try one until you find the right one. You may never eliminate the spitting up though.  Out of curiousity  how much is she getting per bottle? Haven't read otehr replies so ignore if you've answered.

After reading replies it sounds like you're overfeeding. Baby needs no more than 3 oz in a bottle ever. Are you exclusively pumping?  Is that why you're giving the bottles?
