We just started pumping and introducing a bottle in preparation for my return to work. Our 4 1/2 week old daughter took this bottle with zero hesitation and is now going back and forth between breastfeeding and bottle beautifully. All the parts sounded intimidating but are actually very easy to use and clean. Neither my husband or I had ever bottle fed a baby before, and we figured it out without difficulty.

For any other first-time, clueless parents out there: this set comes with a size 1 (newborn)nipple attached to each bottle (5 total) and 2 size 2 nipples that are extras. I didn't see anywhere in the description that said the size 1's were included (just listed the size 2 nipples)and having never done this before we didn't realize the Size 1's came as part of the bottle, so I ordered the newborn size separately. Oops, but we'll use them.

I have been looking for a bottle that my daughter will not reject. My daughter was using The First Years Breastflow BPA Free Starter Set, but suddenly rejected the bottle. We noticed that she became very gassy with those bottles, so tried the Dr. Brown's bottles, which were recommended by my home daycare provider. I believe that the venting system is important, as the Breastflow nipple would collapse completely while she was drinking, making it harder to draw milk. However, the nipple on the Dr Brown's bottle was so long and narrow my daughter would gag regularly as the nipple hit the back of her throat.

The bottle also leaked from the sides/vent after returning to an upright position even though I filled the bottle below the max fill line.

A little advice: if you are trying to find the perfect bottle for your baby, keep in mind that all babies are different. My son would take ANY bottle without a problem, and now my daughter is on her 4th bottle, and I still haven't found the perfect one. Both of my children were breastfeeding exclusively at the time. I suggest buying single bottles at a store and trying it before ordering large starter kits.

I recently purchased the BreastFlow by First Years for my 3 wk son. He seemed to drink pretty well from them, but the flow was too fast and the nipples seem to collapse. It was kind of a pain to squeeze the nipple to get the milk back into the bottle.
My friends told me about the Dr. Brown bottles and showed me the nipple flow. I bought some based on my friends recommendation and have fell in love with the bottles. My son drinks slower, has less gas, and does not spit up as much. I would highly recommend these bottles to anyone who breastfeeds and pumps, or breast and formula feed. My son did not realize he was full for 10-15 minutes after using the BreastFlow bottles, with the Dr. Brown's (because of the slower flow nipples that simulate the actual breast flow speed) my son realizes he is full soon after his feeding.
Definately worth the money, wish I would have known about the differences in the compared products nipple flow and I wouldn't have wasted my money on the BreastFlow bottles.
The only downside to the Dr. Brown bottles is that it is more time consuming to wash the bottles because of the extra pieces, but that is minor compared to the satisfaction my son receives from each feeding due to the nipple flow and decreased air intake.

I love these feeding bottles. I used different types of feeding bottles (Dr.Brown's, AVENT, Playtax) and Dr.Brown's is the winner. The ad said "Reduces colic, spit up, burping and gas". I have to say ' it is true'.

Absolutely love the bottles. Have about 9 of these - six 8oz and three 4oz. Will buy more 8o ones soon. Baby loves them - no gagging, no leaks, easy to assemble. Much better nipples when compared with the Phillips Avent Natural line. I didn't like the Dr. Brown's wide-neck ones as much - thought they were too wide. Love the Dr. Brown's bottle warmer too!

I did a ton of research on bottles (or so I thought) before we decided on Tommee Tippee bottles. We used them up until baby was 3 weeks. Using them wasn't so bad at first, but only because we didn't know better. After baby started spitting up, too young and too much, I bought one Dr Brown bottle. In 2-minutes we were in love with these bottles (I bought tons within 3-minutes on amazon).

Bad Tommee Tippee. Good Dr. Brown:
* It was impossible to take off the cap with one hand on Tommee Tippee. I now know, one-handed up-capping is really critical during feeding time.
* Baby could drink 2-ounces without having to be burped. She did not drip, leak or drool milk either.
* Her burps became baby-like (instead of the trucker-guy-like tenfold...we just thought babies burped like that!)
* She has less blistering on her lips from sucking on the smaller Dr. Brown nipples.

Bad Dr. Brown. Okay Tommee Tippee
* Dr. Brown bottles are ugly (I'm an aesthetic junkie but now have let that go)
* Takes longer to clean (but worth it for 100% happier and easier baby feedings)

The Dr. Brown bottles were recommended to me by a friend with a special needs child who had done a lot of research. And I must say he was right. Even with the extra parts (which are necessary for the vacuum-less bottle design), I haven't had any problems with the bottles. No leaks, cleanup is easy, and our baby (our second) took right to them.

I will say one thing: You really need a dishwasher and the dishwasher basket to wash these effortlessly. Otherwise there are a bunch of parts to keep track of. Also, you should rinse the bottles after use. Milk is hard to clean off anything after it has dried.

I have been very happy with these and can recommend them wholeheartedly.

my baby's pediatrician recommended these. Baby has less gas, rarely throws up or spits up, and seems to like them too.

First off I'm just going to go ahead and say it. I dislike (hate is a strong word) these bottles. BUT, when we first got them I did absolutely love them. They were perfect for my LO and they really did help with gas. They do just as they are advertised to do. Now that my baby is 4-months-old, they are completely worthless to me. The reason for this is that probably around 2 months or so she was no longer gassy no matter what bottle I used (apparently all babies are gassy during this time, who knew?). I am a first time mom and I have finally come to realize what most other moms already know: YOU DON'T HAVE TO HAND WASH ALL OF YOUR BOTTLES. IT IS OK TO PUT THEM IN THE DISHWASHER. Wow, it feels good to say that. I really wish someone would have told me this a long time ago. It is a learning experience I guess. These bottles are a complete pain to wash. If I'm being honest, when I first read about people complaining about too many parts, I thought they were just lazy. Now I have come to realize they were not lazy. They were smart. I was completely OCD and I just wanted to do everything right. I think if anything, get yourself a small pack or two of these bottles for the beginning months. Then switch on over to Evenflo glass bottles (my favorite) or whatever other BASIC type of bottles you choose. (Just to clarify, I was using the plastic Dr. Brown's bottles not the glass ones). Oh and btw, you cannot simply take away the parts and try and feed your baby with just the bottle part and the nipple top (although it would make life so much simpler). It will leak all over the place. I just got finished trying to feed my baby who was going down for a nap and her "waterproof" bib was completely soaked and she was sticky after I just bathed her. Needles to say I am not happy about it. Hence the reason for this review.

I have been through a ton of BPA free bottles and this is by FAR the best one yet. My baby loves these bottles and they clean up great. Yes, there are many parts but clean up is a breeze! I would MOST definitely recommend these!!!
