I planned on using Soothie bottles for Brylie because I have a lot of friends who recommended them, and we plan on using soothie paci's if she needs a pacifier, so the nipples are the same. (Plus it is what my hospital uses I believe)

But as I read on here I haven't seen anyone mention them so I am wondering if you used them, did you like them? Dislike them? We have about 7 right now. I gave away all the playtex drop ins (I hated all the parts and putting it together) and was planning on giving away my playtex vent air that I have. Do you think I should get a few different bottles and see what she prefers? If I only offered her the soothies I assume she wouldn't know to have a preferance?
I just think in terms of myself, if I only try one brand of something I don't know enough to prefer another?! Is there any truth to that for babies?

I've been using them for Joel with no problems. The major complaint that I've heard is that the formula comes out too fast and chokes the baby, but I don't find that to be the case at all. Joel is a very slow eater and the bottles work fine for that. I wonder if those moms realized that the 9 ounce Soothies come with Stage 2 nipples? The Stage 1's are working great for my newborn.

HTH! Can't wait to meet Brylie, you're so close now!

thanks! I did notice the stage 2 ones come with bigger nipples so I planned on just using the 4oz ones or if I needed a bigger bottle, just using the slower nipples!

I am super excited to meet Brylie!

My sister in law used these when my nephew was a newborn because that is the pacifier she used for him.... but then he suddenly decided he hated them. So they switched through a few different ones and ended up with a Dr. Browns baby.

Her baby just didn't like them.... but they worked just fine.

You should definitely keep a few different kinds, every baby's different and prefer different things. My son absolutely hated the soothie bottles and paci's but I do know other who loved them.
