I have Vent-aire and Playtex Nurser (with bags) bottles. Both offer slow flow nipples. MAKE SURE YOU GET SLOW FLOW! She chokes on rapid flow, because they are so much faster than breasts.
I like the Vent-air bottles because nothing is disposable, so I don't have to keep buying stuff. They OCCASIONALLY Leak. I once lost a whole bottle in her diaper bag, what a mess! Another time daycare had a whole bottle drain out in the frige, so I had to deliver an extra bottle from work, midday. Now I only use the playtex nursers for out of the house, and the vent-air at home.
Try replacing the plastic piece at the bottom for leaking issues. I know you can buy them at babies r us. I had a couple bottles leak in the fridge but replacing the bottom piece solved the problem.
BIG thank you to Vicki for my beautiful siggy!
