Evenflo Glass Bottles + Medela Nipples = VENT WELL, SIMPLY THE BEST!,
This review is from: Evenflo 3 Pack Classic Glass Bottle, 8-Ounce (Baby Product)
We read alot about the BPA concerns and they make us nervous too. We tried Dr. Browns', Avent, Born Free, etc. and when we discovered that Medela nipples do vent when use with Evenflo glass bottles, we are so happy! Our baby loves this combination too! This system is economical, BPA-free, and simple (comparing to those of Dr. Browns' and Born Free's). We've been using the system for 5+ months and want to share this with you all...
Evenflo glass bottles, made in Mexico ($5 for three) = economically BPA-free!
Medela nipples, made in Germany ($5 for three) = soft, right flowing rate (slow or medium) for newborns and infants (you can buy Medela nipples at Babies R Us stores.)
One thing to remember is that you should tighten the cap just about right (not too tight) or else the system won't vent.

I've used Medela nipples with these Evenflo glass bottles and it was leak city, every time!!! Just thought I'd let people know that this combo hasn't worked out so perfectly for everyone. I ended up using only the Evenflo nipples with the Evenflo bottles and it still leaks when not screwed on JUST RIGHT.

We found that the Medela nipple worked fine with the Evenflo bottle as long as we ALSO used the Medela screw-on ring cap. The nipple didn't fit the Evenflo cap perfectly, but both caps fit either the Evenflo or Medela bottles. Hopes these clarifies because the glass bottles are the better choice.

The Medela nipples- are those the wide-based or the old school ones?? Thanks.

I'd also like to know if it's wide or regular?

Medela is wide and highly reccomended for breastfeeding babies
