Dr Browns Bottles

Hi girls,

Is anyone using these?


I am using Tommee Tippee at the moment but I was talking to a girl today and was telling her about how every time I feed isobel the milk runs down her chin and neck and she gulps at the milk and then is sick after. She said her son was the same (same age as Izzy) but he had colic as well and she was using TT bottles and was recommended Dr Browns. They are a bit more expensive but she said from the moment she started using them he was much better, no spillage, still being sick a bit but not as much as before.

Am thinking of getting some and they have some on Ebay.

I had similar problems with TT but i perservered but then i end up buying boots own bottles and he got on fantastic with them , we still use those now... My friend uses dr browns for her twins and shes never had a problem with them with colic or anything but unfortunatly she has very sicky children so its hard to say if the bottle is a hinderence or a help really

Try Ciao and see if they have any reviews on there , least that way you can find out other peoples opinions

I used Dr Browns with both my children and intend to use them for the next two - it really made a difference to the amount of colic they both had in a matter of weeks. More expensive but in my opinion worth every penny!

THanks ladies,

TBH Isobel hasn't got colic (at least I don't think so) but hopefully they will stop the milk running down her neck at every feed and will help with her posseting which she does frequently.

Dr Browns may reduce the posseting hun. I remember my hv suggesting that we try them when C was sicky early on.

PM I cant reccomend these bottles enough. I BF the twins for 6 weeks then I tried every bottle under the sun, Tomee Tippee, Avent, NuK, you name it. A freind had bought me a pack of these when I was expecting the twins and I have never looked back, a little bit more fiddly to clean as there are more parts but well worth it. I wouldnt hesitate to recommend them as I thought they were great.

Only thing is when you make up a feed and the water is boiling, dont shake the bottle as it tend to spurt back up the pipe and goes everywhere and you risk scalding yourself, wait till the water is cooler or stir with a spoon. x

I use them and they are great - DS is hardly ever sick and never dribbles.

I intend to use them and bought some today. My DD was a sicky baby and i went to a party recently and three mums highly recommended them.

We used Dr Brown bottles for Rebecca's reflux as recommended by the Paediatrician and they were great. Would recommend them highly!!!!

The only thing I am thinking is that I have now heard a couple of people say you can't shake the bottle when you've put the milk in! How does it mix up then!

I just sort of slush it round and it disolves ok ... its better not to shake any bottle too hard anyway as this creates air bubbles that end up in baby's tummy.

My DD suffered with reflux and these bottles were great. They are supposed to cut out the air bubbles in the milk and help with babies being less sicky.

Great thanks ladies. They have arrived now, got a pack of 2 to see how we get on with them. Thought it would be a right palava to make up another bottle first and then pour it into them so I'll just 'slush' it round then!

well I've just used the Dr Browns bottle and so far so good..no spillage. One question..it is supposed to stop burping (personally I like it when she does a good burp!) but we burp her inbetween a feed and then after so should we still be doing it? I know it sounds like a silly question!

You could mix it with a long spoon or just slush it round like Rae suggests.

All well and good with these bottles so far...the only thing is a feed seems to take much longer, I think because DD has to work for the milk a bit more? I am worried she will get fed up and fall asleep!
