Nuk bottles are great! They help reduce colic and they are designed by orthodontists so their teeth aren't affected. You could try getting the Nuk pacifier first and see if your LO likes it. The nipple is also larger so it's more like a breast

I think born free and Dr browns bottles are the best I tried tommee tippee bottles but found thatmy son became a very messy drinker and after a few washes they started to leak out of the valve

try born free or nuk!! Born free does not allow air to get into the nipple and the nuk has a shape that might be alike!!

I was using Tommee Tippee when I was breastfeeding/expressing, but my son was very sick on them and he did'nt like the teat's very much. I also found that they leaked alot.
I now use Avent and I have no problem with them at all. My son perfer's them and they don't leak... so far.

I'm not being rude, but how can a bottle affect a baby's teeth? They suck on it for 10mins while they drink? Plus the WHO recommends breastfeeding until 2 and nipples stay exactly the same those whole 2 years?

i've been using pigeon glass bottles for my toddler, it's really not the bottle they adjust to but the "feel" of the plastic nipple...goodluck:)))

My little man doesn't like the Dr Brown's or Playtex vent aire because they are small nipples. He prefers the nuk and playtex drop ins because the nipple is larger (more like my breast) but that being said my oldest prefered the vent aire and dr brown's and I used the same breast for bfing lol so just depends on the baby (oh and DD #2 didn't really care what kind)

I have identical twin boys that were preemies. They had super bad reflux issues and did not do good with most brands. I finally found Playtex VentAire Advanced angled bottles. The gas was greatly reduced and the reflux was much more managable. We have not used anything elsr since.

The Tommee Tippee closer to nature ones would probably help wean the baby because they are more like a nipple.

I have Avent bottles, but I've also used Tommee Tippee the old school ones. I don't think it matters as long as the flow rate is correct for their needs.
