dr. browns bottles r the best in my opinion i know they are a little expensive but they really do reduce spit-up & air bubbles, my baby is only 7 weeks old but from the few different bottles we had the dr. browns work the best i just went & bought more so the r the only ones we use now

I used some really cheap bottles actually parent's choice I believe from wal mart my seemed to get choked less. I had the same problem, I bought tons of platex drop in bottles before the baby and it seemed even the slow flow nipples he would get choked. I think babies just get in a hurry while eating, my son even choked while he was breastfed.

Not sure if this would help or not, but Dr. Brown bottles might work. I did not use them on my kids, but have used them on ones I babysit for. They are said to have a more natural flow. I know they are suggested for those that spit-up a lot. But with the more natural flow it might work better. Also make sure your nipple is the right flow. Some have a faster flow and some have a slower flow.

i used to use vent aire playtex bottles and my baby choked all the time and i think most of the formula went down her chin lol. so i tried drop ins and she chokes a lot less and she does not drip near as much at all...
