The hospital recommended these bottles as they are the closest nipple to what they provide in the NICU. If my son could use any other bottle I would not be using these. Even if you fill it under the leak proof line, they still leak. Especially if you don't put the flow piece in correctly. If you can get any other bottle save your money!
If your baby is the slightest bit gassy, I'd recommend this bottle. It can be a bit tedious to clean because of the many small pieces but a happy baby is a happy parent-so trust me, its worth it. We only use Dr Brown bottles and we love them. Their slim style fits easily in any diaper bag which is a bonus.
Love these bottles my little one now doesn't spit up as much as she use to and they are easy to hold by the baby ! Very pleased with this product I have purchased more and even the option bottles are great for older children as well ! Fully recommended!
After using the avent bottles, I decided to switch to dr brown's bottles based on word of mouth. Although there were many parts to wash and sterilize, I found these bottles to make my baby less colicky and more leak proof.
My baby was never colicky maybe because we are using Dr. Browns since she started bottle feeding. I am very happy with this bottles. Its worth the money spent. They even use my baby's picture holding their product in their US contest in facebook.
I used the Dr. Brown's bottles for my second son. He was in the hospital for 6 weeks and while he was in there he was on a regular pre made formula bottles and he was constantly fussy and gassy and had thrush twice. So when he finally came home I went out and bought the Dr. Brown's bottles for him and I will never buy any other bottles for any of my kids, or my family or friends who are pregnant or have babies! Once he started on the Dr. Brown's bottles he wasn't gassy or fussy and he was so content and the most amazing perfect little angel! They worked so good! I recommend them to everyone I know that is pregnant or has babies!
Best bottles I've ever had for the boys! I have two boys under 2 years and I've use so many different brands until I tried Dr Brown's. These bottles really do their job. Good quality, easy to clean, easy to use, and baby loves them!
Dr Browns bottles were the best for my little one. The venting system definitely made a difference for her as compared to other bottles. Less air so less gas and discomfort. I found they held up well to all the washing and sterilizing too.
Before my son was born, I did a lot of research on all things baby-related and one of the most debated topics was which type of bottle was best. Although I've tried nearly every type, he currently uses Dr. Brown's bottles and loves them. They have a nice design and are easy to hold, but cleaning them is a whole different situation altogether. The 5 separate parts of the bottle all need to be washed individually and some of them are incredibly hard to clean, even with a bottle-specific brush. I would imagine if you had a bottle steam cleaner it would be easier but if you're washing them by hand, I would think twice about purchasing this bottle.
I love love love these bottles. My son was battling horrible gas and was so unhappy and in pain. These bottles helped so much and now he is happy and almost gas free. I get a new Dr. Brown bottle every chance I get and highly recommend them.
