Which bottle type?
I'm pumping and bottle feeding every once in a while. Problem is, DS2 apparently HATES the nipple. I have Playtex nursers, slow and medium flow and he spits out both.

What bottles / nipples are you using?

I use the new style Avent bottles.

We did the classic Avent bottles. I liked the new ones too, the "natural" ones, but his mouth leaked terribly with those, hah. It was better with the classic ones.

Re: Which bottle type?
We are having a big problem trying to find a bottle that Christian will take. He seems to hate them all and will only drink out of a bottle after much crying. We have been using the playtex nursers but he doesn't seem to like them. I tried the dr. browns and he hates those also. So I got some tommee tippee yesterday and daycare is going to try them today. They are really big nipples shaped like boobs so I'm hoping he will take those. I'll let you know how he does. He just prefers to nurse and doesn't like the bottle. I'm hoping after a few more days at daycare he will start doing better. the other day at daycare he would only drink 2 oz of pumped milk at a time and was very fussy.

Yes, that is rough Melissa. Keep me posted. I bought a Medela bottle and nipple today as well as a Tippee and a Avent. I will let you know the outcome.

Aw Melissa, that must be so tough to know he's struggling. I couldn't get Kody to take a bottle for anything after we stopped using them past 1 month old or so. Tried to reintroduce them and he would have rather starved than taken it. I hope your little guy decides it's better to eat than go hungry.

Re: Which bottle type?
I don't know if we have the classic or new style, but we use the Avents also and the nipples are big/wide so more like boob shaped.
