Bottles leak- would not recommend
These bottles leak every use. We have two so am sure it is not a malfunction, as both leak. We are not overfilling and kid is always on tight. I would not recommend this particular style of Doctor Browns.

Do not recommend
We were recommended by health professionals to try Dr Brown's bottles for our very colicky baby who had a lot of wind issues birth- 18 months ish. We have found them to be very ineffective and in our honest opinion a waste of money. They had no effect whatsoever. We also found they continually leaked through the seal and were very hard to clean. Each to their own, but I definitely would not use again in future.

Worst bottles ever!
These bottles are the worst bottles on the market. Not only do they leak like a sieve they also have a million parts that need washing. If you want your baby to stay dry during feeding then look elsewhere.

Not worth the hype
These bottles have been a nightmare. They were good initially but it did not take very long until they started leaking. The leaking was very bad. Every feed I would have to re-screw the lid multiple times and my babies clothes would end up soaked with milk. The bottles helped with reflux a small amount but it still took my 5 month old a good hour to drink each feed and lots of burping in between.
Cleaning these bottles is also a major hassle. There are just too many small parts that need special cleaning.
I am incredibly disappointed. I hav...e spent so much money on Dr Brown's bottles (both glass and plastic), upgrading the teats to the appropriate flow, drying racks, etc etc. I have recently switched to Pigeon bottles. They have been so much better it's incredible. So much less burping is needed, fewer parts, no leaking and the feed time has been drastically reduced.

For the price of the bottles it’s not worth it. My child is 7 months now and I’ve changed teats and paid extra money have everything dr Brown and the green & blue stems inside stretch and bend and the circle thing under the lid also stretches my bottles all leak milk and water every time all over my child and me so disappointing. Also hard to clean the stems and inside of the circle under the lid. Have purchased the $10 three pack of bottles from tommee tippee for 1 week now and not 1 leak.

Questions & Answers
Where can I buy these please - I need some urgently. Many thanks. Cheryl
My son is 3 days old, in the hospital wer were using a different kind of bottle & he was feeding perfectly & I noticed no gas problems. Yesterday we got home & I started using the wide neck Dr B's range that I had bought, he is now struggling with wind his tummy is making wind noises as he feeds. What am I doing differently from everyone else? Coz everyone seems to be getting the opposite results. Now he refuses to feed he pushes the bottle with his tongue because he struggles with this bottle.
Im having my baby in 3 months and was thinking of buying these bottles as im not breast feeding. If my newborn doesnt have wind/gas are these bottles still good??
