    We have been using the Avent Natural bottles since our baby started day care (about 8.5 months ago) and they have never once leaked. We have been very happy with them.

  2. Christy says June 18, 2013

    I like the idea and look of these Bare bottles but 14.99 for one bottle is ridiculous – plus shipping and tax it came out to be almost $23 for ONE!! Maybe when they are in stores, but still, yikes!

  3. Wendy @ New Moms Talk says June 18, 2013

    Though far from the regularly heard about bottles, I still love our ThinkBaby ones. Susanna was able to transition from breast to bottle and back simply, and the cost is very good.

    Has anyone tried the Joovy Boob bottles? I have seen them online and in Buy Buy Baby, but would love to hear some feedback from real moms.

    1. Rachel says September 2, 2013


      I am breast feeding and supplementing with 1-2 formula bottles a day and am using the Joovy boob bottles. They are awesome!! I really can’t say enough positive things about the bottle. My little miss has had no issues (knock on wood haha) swapping between breast feedings and the bottle.

  5. Alexis L says June 18, 2013

    I’m also interested in feedback on the Joovy.

  6. Melissa says June 18, 2013

    I’m surprised that the Tommee Tippee bottles weren’t listed. I have registered for them specifically because they look like they have a very natural shape and it would be easy for baby to transition between bottle and breast. Any moms have experience with these bottles?

    1. tiara says November 25, 2013

      Ive tried tommee bottles my son does not like them so we are going to try avent with my daughter i used breastflow but the outer nipple always deflated

  7. Michelle says June 18, 2013

    Great info on the bottles. I see those Dr. Brown’s EVERYWHERE.
    Isis Parenting has a great webinar on bottle feeding the breastfed baby H

  8. Linsey says June 29, 2013

    We loved the Born Free bottles. We have used them with both of our kids.

  9. Kehler says July 1, 2013

    We tried Born Free, Dr. Brown’s, and Tommee Tippee and found the Tommee Tippee ones were the only ones our daughter would take. We love them!!

    As a first time, due-in-a-week mom, I spent the money for the Bare bottles. They just arrived today, and being curious I tried one out… So far I am NOT impressed. Putting them together is easy, pushing out the extra air, not so much. Then when I tried to suck water out of it, the nipple collapsed in on itself, sucked air and basically crumpled on itself. Hmmm. I also don’t love that it can’t be steam sterilized or washed in a dishwasher. I’m going to take one to my dr. apt tomorrow and see what she thinks, but I have a feeling I’ll be returning everything for Dr. Browns.

      I had the exact same bad experience with the bare bottle.

      Even if it had worked properly, it seems like it would waste a lot of milk. You have to expel milk out the top each time you use it to get the air out, and it easily leaks milk out if the bottom in the process. After an hour of re-reading the directions and trying over and over I could not get it to work. I ended up with water everywhere. (I practiced with water as the instructions suggest.)

      It seems like it would work in theory, but it just isn’t perfected.

      Having a bottle with few parts to clean is one of the main reasons I bought it, but it is useless to me if it can not go in the bottle warmer, steam sanitizer, or dishwasher. Also, it mentions that the air plug must be replaced every 6 weeks!!! At $22 per bottle after shipping, I didn’t except to have to buy new parts.

    I was so excited about the Bare bottles. I watched for them and wanted them during my pregnancy. My son is now 6 months and I finally have 2 of these Bare bottles in my home. They leak everywhere. I spent around $38 for 2 8oz bottles. I bought 2 thinking that I would need them and that the bottles were the answer to my son’s reflux problem. I keep trying to read the directions and put them back together but they always leak. I loved the idea and I just knew they were the best bottle out there. I am so disappointed. I hope they fix the problems and replace my parts or my money.

    I used the Breastflow bottles with my oldest son- he was mostly breastfed with the occasional bottle of formula (pumping didn’t work) for when I needed my “me time”
    I personally loved them. I liked that my son could latch onto them just like a boob (instead of nipple sucking like normal bottle nipples) and we never had issues with him preferring bottle over boob. The only bad thing is that they are hard to clean with all the little crevices in blue inner nipple- especially if you leave the milk to sit in the bottle and then it congeals and its hard to clean- to definitely rinse all parts after use.
    Oh, I did see that they also make liners for the Breastflow bottles now (like the playtex drop ins) but I never got to use them, since my son hasn’t had a bottle since 11 months.

    I have another boy due in December and want to give Tommee Tippee a try this time around. I was surprised they weren’t on this list.
    I do also have a brand new Advent natural bottle and it looks very similar to Tommee Tippee- so we will see how they work!

    My LO is 2 months old. We have used Avent Natural flow with success and the Nuk with success until about one week ago….now he adamantly refuses anything bottle. Not sure what is going on. I am not a fan of the Dr. Brown model (or anything similar) as the multiple parts may be difficult for my mom who is playing nanny in 3 weeks when I go back to work to properly take down clean up and put back together. I will be gone for 13-14 hours a day so he HAS TO eat from a bottle. We worried it was the taste of my frown then thawed milk but we have tried cooled fresh and even formula….all a no go. Any advice?

    Hmm, I’m wondering why Lansinoh’s Momma bottle wasn’t on this list. It’s a really good bottle that I use. It has a wide neck and is shaped like mama’s breast. My son has a really good latch on the bottle and I don’t have any issues with the nipple deflating. The bottle only has 4 parts including the top, which is the bottle itself, nipple, and screw ring. It is very easy to clean. I don’t have issues with colic or nipple confusion. I introduced this bottle before my son was 1m old. Only down fall is the stage one nipple is 2-3 times faster than breastfeeding. He is now going on 5m old and I still use what Lasinoh brands as “slow” for my son. Stage two is far too fast for him.

    I was wondering if anyone knew of a bottle warmer for the Joovy bottles. Please let me know if anyone knows of any good information.
