Dont waste your money! They leak so bad!

published

Dont waste your money- they are so expensive and all you get is a product thats consistently leaks. What a joke. Contacted dr browns to advise and they didnt care and said they have never had leaking issues....ahhh they obviously dont look at their reviews online as all I can see is bad reviews about how they leak!

Purchased in February 2019 at Catch for $40.00.

I wouldn't recommend these

published

I was recommended these bottles by my health nurse for my prem baby, so during the month of September I went and bought 7 of them from baby kingdom.

These bottles cost a fortune and I was ok with that because the premmie teeth is fantastic for my baby BUT;
The leaking is unbearable especially when I'm out in public, it frustrates me and causes baby to get upset whilst I'm trying to fix the problem.

Very disappointed with this product!!

Purchased in September 2019 at Baby Kingdom for $200.00.

They leak

published

A month ago I would have given these 5 stars. Now the teats are getting blocked (on neocate formula, which is thin..) and a few parts need replacing already. The preparation is getting a little tiring now, but the reason I'm moving on to a different brand is the LEAKING. I've been careful and followed all instructions, yet after 9-10 weeks of use they're starting to leak. I have 8 bottles so each is only used once a day. I read reviews prior and thought people may have been careless.. but no, they just leak.

Purchased in August 2019 at Baby Kingdom Physical store.

Waste of money they leak!

published

To begin with great but after about 2mths they leak! Was a horrible experience as I had to express then feed my EBM to my baby and the bottle would leak and I would loose my 3hours hard work expresses milk! She was premi and I had very little milk so this was a nightmare for me!

Excellent, easy to use and clean - long lasting

published

I have been using the Dr Browns bottle for approx 5 months for my 7 month old who had severe colic. These bottle restricted the amount of air and bubbles my son was taking in and making. If you have a baby that likes the gulp I also recommend these.
Although the bottle are on the higher end of cost as are the teets as me son grows, it is worth it.
With my daughter I, who is now 4, i would have spent more money on cheaper bottles by the same age.
I read the reviews before purchasing and found a few said about leakage- they only leak if the green stem isn’t sitting properly or the lid isn’t on properly.
Highly recommend!
Only downfall is I hadn’t to buy a new bottle bag

Life saver

Been using narrow neck bottles for few weeks now. Have been so fantastic. My 3 month old baby was only drinking 30-40 mls before crying in pain, she started refusing bottles. I tried 4 different bottles before finding this one. No more tears or stress at feeding time, she drinks all her milk and doesn’t get much wind at all. Fantastic bottles. I’m not sure about the leaking others mention, mine don’t leak at all. Well worth the money.

Leak, Leak, Leak

i'm using Dr. Brown's Natural Flow bottles for couple of month and no doubt this product help my baby. since its time to change for new bottle so i bought the new type "green vent" but the bottles leaks all over my hand and everywhere/terribly either while baby sucking or finish milk and leave it aside.

Not right for our baby

published

I'm dissatisfied with this product, unfortunately these bottles have done nothing to help my baby with wind/colic problems using the options/ vent system attached and may be the cause of her problems as she has had these bottles from week one. The teats can become blocked quite regularly and if there is no vent system attached the bottles do leak.


Not impressed

published

The bottles leak terribly and our little one got so upset because it was sooooo hard to suck the milk out. He is having expressed breast milk. After a frustrating hour we got more milk and put it in the Avent and he was frantic and gulped away. Unfortunately neither helped his colic. I then cleaned the bottle and put warm water in it and tried it. It was really difficult to get anything out of it - I'm not sure how a baby is supposed to manage this??

Made colic worse

published

Purchased these bottles in an attempt to help my son with his colic and excessive wind problem. They are the worst bottles I’ve come across. After one use, his wind intake from them was the worst I’ve ever seen, to the point where he spent the remainder of the day screaming for an hour at a time with wind pain. We are going back to using Nuk bottles, as they seem to be the right one for my son. I would not recommend Dr Brown’s bottles based on my experience with them.

I have used the wide neck DBB since day 1 with my daughter and love them, never had a problem except occassional leak
However, i bought the narrow neck ones with stage 2 teat and they're shocking! So many bubbles, thought the idea was no bubbles? Also they leak everywhere,Waste of money and really disappointed , just bought stage 2 teats for my wide necks and will continue to just use them

Has a number of problems for the high price you pay

published

I purchased 6 of the Dr Brown's Natural Flow bottles and have the same problems as everyone else - they leak. This was not the biggest problem however. I have found that the measurements on the side of the bottles are all rubbing off! I contact DBB and they were very helpful and sent x2 replacement bottles but it's now happening to the other 4. No point in re-ordering as the same thing will keep happening.

If you purchase this particular style bottle - be prepared to keep replacing them and we all know that for the price you pay, this should not be happening!


Terrible

published

the worse bottles I've used....and I'm a mother for the third time, so I can telll you I've used different of bottles. I would not advise anyone to buy these bottles...leaking everywhere and certainly did not reduce the risk of colic for my son. very disappointment in this product and I certainly would not advise anyone to buy this product.


I love Dr Brown's Bottles !!

published

Dr Browns narrow neck 2 pack bottles

published

Pros- less colic pain for babies. Best bottle I have used thus far.
Cons- bottle can't handle very hot water. It leaks. So keep the lid open when you re warming it in hot water for already made feeds.
Clear bottle blue writing fades away eventually after sterilisation. So I bought limited edition pink bottles with volume markings in built with the bottle. However the markings are same colour as bottle and hard to read.


Sometimes that works but doesn't at the same time

published

My baby happened to be the lucky colic baby. I have tried every bottle brand and so far these are the best when it comes to his cramps and winds.... HOWEVER no matter the wide neck or narrow neck I still sit with the leaking of the bottles which makes sure I have to change my baby after almost every feed due to all the milk running out of the bottle.... I have tried different positions for the filters and still nothing helps.... regarding the amount you pay for these bottles its sad specially when they actually work.

I have a question. What is the difference between narrow, standard and wide neck bottles? Which one is more suitable for a newborn?

Hi Paris
The narrow neck is slim bottle. Wide neck bottle is similar size Avent bottle, it's easy to clean and no leaking after use.
Both can use for new born baby with low flow teat. Hopes this can help you :)

Does anyone know if you can fit the slim Dr Browns bottles into an advent steam steraliser?

The 4oz fit more than 6 bottles vertically but the 8oz you need to put them horizontally and can fit up to 5 8oz bottles.

I have a question I will be having my baby at the end of June and I would like some information on the Dr brown bottles are they only for babies with colic or Reflux or could I also use them to prevent?

Hello, I've been using them since my oldest daughter was born, I bought them because she was having colic, after I used them with my other 2 daughters and they didn't had any issue with colic and reflux.
I recommend this bottles 100% and if you can get some one to buy them for you on USA and bring them will be better as there the difference on price is huge.
