YES!! Switch bottles, my son had terrible gas, we switched to Dr. Brown's and the gas stopped. I highly recommend them and won't use anything else when we have more kids.

Both my kids had colic, lots of gas, so with my second son I switched the bottles to Dr.Brown and I didn't find any change except more hassle for me to clean. I tryed Born Free bottles still no change, and lots of pieces to clean like the Dr.Brown but easier then Dr. Brown. The only thing that helped with the gas and colic was changing his formula to a lactose free one. In general most babies get over colic after 3-4 months. My first son I didn't change anything, but I did use Oval drops (and with my second son) and they work really well with gas.

I think the Dr. Brown bottles are too much work, too much too clean and too many peices. The Playtex Drop Ins are really good and you can buy the walmart drop ins at half the price ot the playtex. Also if you are formula feeding, my son is on Enfamil GentleEase and it really helps. The protiens are already particully broken up so it's easier on thier tummys. Walmart does have thier own brand,but it didn't work for my son. Also remember when switching formulas it can take 3-5 days for thier tummys too get used too it and they recommend doing a total switch so that it doesn't take longer for thier tummys to get used to the switch. Best of luck

i was using dr browns ever since my son was born until he was about 6 months and switched to sippy so i cant really say they helped him from getting colic cuz he never had it but he was always on dr browns he did have gas i just used the gas drops all the time until idk maybe 4 months or so until it was gone you can do exercises with your son to help with the gas...

I've used them exclusively with my 3rd child (she was not a good nurser, so I pumped for 5 months). I still use them with formula now and they have helped so much with gas and fussiness. I LOVE them!!!

I agree with Jackie, My mom bought me these bottles for my daughter, I quite using them it took more time to wash, more time to make the formula because you can't shake the bottles, and the straw thing got mildrew in it. I used regular bottles after that.

I don't think Dr. Brown bottles make a difference for my little one who is medicated with reflux. I think the bag bottles do a good job reducing the amount of air babies get in their bellies. But every baby is different. Your little one will let you know.

I used them with my son and he still spit up a whole lot! They're good bottles, but you aren't suppose to shake formula in them as they will spill. Also, there are a lot of parts to wash. It's a big pain!!

dr browns are great and they dont leak but you have to be careful b/c bacteria and mildew can get into the brown plastic part even after cleaning with the special brush,boiling in water and in the dishwasher. I cut mine up b/c i was so scared my daughter was going to keep getting sick. and as for a humidifier i like filter free ones b/c of the same reason.....

We've used both Playtex bottles with Drop-ins and Dr. Browns glass bottles with the gas reduction thingy that sticks down the middle. Honestly, the Playtex & Drop-ins work better for my son. He rarely fights with gas at all.



Do you use Gripe Water when your son seems gassy? If not, I highly recommend it. Also, what type of formula are you using? Some formulas are notorious for causing gas. Besides switching bottles, there are lots of things that you can do to help reduce your sons gas.

Hope that helps!

I couldn't really tell much of a difference with Dr. Browns bottles, and they are kind of hard to clean.
