My son has suffered with sever reflux since birth and he's now 4 months and I've only just tried Dr browns bottles and NO spewing! I am incredibly happy as now he can put on weight (he's still in 0000 clothing and 4 months) I only have 1 bottle but will be getting more now I know they're amazing
Used once! ANAZING!!
I love them that much I just sent my husband back into town to buy 3 more! Our 4 week old drank perfectly with no fussing and crying like usual and no collapsing teat. After a feed he didn't even seem to have wind and fell asleep as opposed to crying in pain and being irritated with our other bottles. I mentioned to the sales assistant people saying they leak and she said it's because they tighten them too much. You only tighten until it grabs and we didn't have an issue. Not one bit of leaking. Love them!!
Huge improvement to baby's wind and reflux issues
I would not have a baby and be without these bottles ever again. My baby used to take a long time feeding from Medela, Avent, Tommee Tippee and even a cheapy Dymples brand because she wasn't comfortable. This has changed dramatically with Dr Brown's bottles and her reflux and wind symptoms have improved greatly.
Some people say these bottles leak and I found that they only do that when the teat and collar is wet from a previous washing. If you dry these parts properly first with some paper towel there are no leaks whatsoever.
Easy to flow but it leaks!!!
The wide neck bottle leaks, i bought a pack of three and they all have the same problem. The milk runs through the edge of the cap when feeding, and my figure gets burnt when I rinse the bottle with hot water. It is very annoying! Can't feed baby like this as the milk would go everywhere on his face neck and clothes. How could this product be on market!!??
Reduces colic but BOTTLE LEAKS EVERYWHERE
Great bottle to reduce wind, switched over from Tommee Tippee and noticed the difference almost straight away. However the bottles leak at every single feed no matter how you put them together or how tight you screw the cap on. The leaking from the bottle drives me insane, it drips on my baby and formula gets everywhere. I have contacted dr browns about this asking as to wether it is normal for them to leak that much however got no response.
The first generation of this is much better than the new series
We have been using Dr. Browns wide neck bottles for 9 months. We started with Avent then migrated to Dr. Browns old series to reduce colic symptoms. It was effective.
We bought the new series (green flapper/tube 270ml) because it was advertised to be possible to use with no flapper&tube thus making clean up much easier. Our baby is much less prone to swallowing air so we wanted to completely switch over to no disk&tube bottles in a few months.
-the volume labels are much easier to read
-the green color is more unisex instead of the blue or pink
-it does not perform as advertised - if you do not use the green disk and tube it WILL leak all over your baby ...
My first baby suffered with silent reflux so when I found out I was having another bub I began looking for ways to relieve the symptoms of reflux. Since I found these bottles I have had next to no problems with reflux in my second baby and he is now 6 months old. I can't fault them. Buy the travel lids is my advice they are great for shaking the bottle while mixing formula and won't leak when going out ( I still store my bottles upright in my baby bag) I found the lids that come with the bottles leak also the bottles will leak if you do not put the teat in right or you do not screw the top on tight enough, on the other hand if It is too tight bub wont get any milk so you need the right amount of tightness, practice makes perfect!
Saved my sanity!
These bottles are expensive but worth every cent. I purchased them from babybottles.com.au and they have huge discounts if you get the ones that have damaged packaging.
We tried everything for our 4 week old baby and these bottles have done the trick, she suffers from really bad wind and it didn't matter what formula she had it was BAD. Now we use S26 with Infacol and infants friend as well as these bottles and we have seen a lot of improvement.
I highly recommend these bottles.
I haven't had any of the leaking issues other people have mentioned.
Dr Browns Leaky Bottles
The bottles are nice the only problem I have is that it leaks A LOT! There are times my daughters clothes are wet that is how much these bottles leaks it drives me insane and its extremely frustrating. What is even more frustrating the fact that the the SA distributor does not even respond in a proper manner to my inquiry I sent to them.
Great help with tummy issues
i love these bottles..!! I was sceptical at first but once i saw the improvement in my baby's tummy issues after trying them i decided to replace the rest of her bottles (we were using Pegion & Avent Natural).
My baby has a bit of reflux too. When we use dr brown bottles, she burps easily, less hiccups, less thrashing around, less spillage & no wet burps.
They are good for the middle of night feeding. I dont have to worry about burping her as there is less air in the bottle. She doesnt wake up from gas / discomfort. She was doing this previously.
We got them on special so the price was reasonable to other brands out there. I definitely recommend them.
The best bottles!!!!
I love these bottles. Our little lady struggles with gas and tummy issues, but these have been a life saver she burps straight away, no issues at all!
Thank goodness for finding them!
She loves the tears. We tried a few different bottles and she wouldn't take to them!
They changed my life!
These are the best bottles for windy babies. I tried everything with my 8 month old, all the medications, all the burping tricks, but these were the only thing that helped him sleep. We noticed an immediate difference with them, our son slept 8 hours the first night and 10.5 the second. Previously he would wake 2-6 times a night since birth because of wind pain.
I can't recommend them highly enough!
Best bottles on the market for fussy baby
These bottles are fabulous for windy, cholicy or reflux babies and really do work. I was skeptical at first, unsure how the funnel set up inside could work but it does. Unfortunately they can be hard to buy and are only sold online and in selected chemists. The downsides are they are expensive (although the fact they work makes the price ok) and they tend to leak when heating the bottle if you have them screwed up too tight. They also don't fit in the usual microwave steamer for wide necks as they are quite tall. But the expense and leaking don't off set how well they work. Any parent of a cholicy baby would agree that $15 a bottle is worth every cent for a happier baby.
Life-saver after bub refused other brand teats
Moved from breastfeeding to bottle when my daughter was 9 months old and returning to work. This is the only bottle that she would accept after a few anxious weeks! I had to trial and error the teats though, as I found them a little slower and used AR formula (which tends to be a little thicker and she suffered from reflux). Bottles were a lifesaver and wished that I had bought these from the start! Used wide-necked plastic bottles. Bottles rings needs to be tightly secured as they can leak otherwise, but this is a small price to pay. Woul...d not have been able to return to work on time if I didn't use these. Bottle/teat was accepted after bottle refusal of other brands, great for sufferers of wind/reflux Multiparts are more difficult to clean, expensive and harder to find stockists offline
After reading rave reviews about Dr Browns bottles we have them a try - just wanted to leave a review that they don't work for everyone.
Our baby was very gassy, struggled to feed and was highly uncomfortable with wind issues when being fed using these bottles. We used the wide neck variety.
Baby experienced bad gas and struggled to feed. Expensive.
best yet !
my LO has seemed to suffer from wind and he has reflux. i was always blaming the formulas thinking thats what was causing all this trapped wind and sore tummy ( im sure it played a part in ) i finally figured id try different bottles after trying nearly them all i came across these and they are so far the best for my son and his lil tummy he sleeps so much more soundly then before.they fit in my avent bottle warmer and steralizer to and when out i shake the bottle and not ONE bubble is left in bottle once he starts to drink its like they disappear.
a lil bit of a hassel to clean n dont warm in warmer with blue part as it will leak out
My baby loves the teat!
After my usual Avent bottles were nowhere to be found in my local chemist, I went on a bit of a spree and bought a 3 pack of the Dr Browns Wide Neck Bottle on a whim, and they are excellent!
My baby has a very fussy nature and if he doesn't like the teat he won't drink until I get him his preferred teat... I was a bit concerned about this being new, and just forking out $65 for the bottles and level 2 teats they work a dream.
At first they leaked because I never read the instructions, you can only heat the bottle, not the blue internal tu...be and seal and teat as otherwise gas explodes inside and milk will go everywhere. There are more parts in these bottles yet when you have a microwave steriliser it's easy. I use the Avent and the bottles fit in perfectly which was great. My baby doesn't have any wind or colic anyway so I never bought these for that purpose, yet he loves the teats - I just hate how it's almost impossible to see where you are filling up to, as the numbers are clear just like the bottle... impossible ! My baby loves the teat, pretty fancy looking bottle The measurements on the side are virtually impossible to see
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??
