This is the brand that we use and I will say that I have been very happy with them. We have tried 2 other types of bottles with slow flow nipples and I could tell a difference with his latch afterwards. They force him to work harder and to keep his latch wider and not just suck on the nipple.

I had one of those. I liked it and thought that it did a good job. It’s the only one that I tried, and Derbybride is absolutely right in her description. After I used it, I usually had better luck with breastfeeding than when I used a normal bottle.

A tip though is to only use the slow flow bottles if you switch between breast and bottle. If you give baby both slow and fast flow, they will get fussy and not like the slow flow. I know this is common sense, and you probably already thought about it, but this is just in case you didn’t. Being a new mother, I didn’t even think about it at all. After a time, she just cried whenever we tried to feed her with it.

As far as the leaking thing, some of the formula (I didn’t give her much breastmilk in a bottle) did make it into the middle of the nipple and the filter. And as long as you get a dishwasher container for those parts, you should be okay with washing them. You can get these anywhere. I got mine from Target. It wasn’t something that I really washed by hand.

Also, I only had one of the Breastflow bottles and about eight normal bottles, so some were slow flow and some were fast flow. I just had to go with what I had. I did find the Breastflow a little irritating to work with, because it does take a lot of time, but I’m impatient like that. It was slower than even the normal slow flow bottles. Yuuki never drowned on the fast flow though. She just preferred getting the food quicker.

I like the idea behind those bottles. Do you know if they plan to make them in glass in the future? Or if another company makes something similar in glass?
