The Dr. Brown’s Natural Flow Standard Baby Bottles offer a wonderful feeding experience with innovative vent technology. Dr Brown’s bottles use a patented 2-piece internal vent system for your baby’s comfort. This system creates positive-pressure flow for vacuum-free feeding that is similar to breastfeeding. The breast milk or formula flows freely without nipple collapse. As the baby feeds, air is channeled from the nipple collar through the vent system to the back of the bottle. Air never mixes with the breast milk or formula so oxidation is prevented, thereby maintaining essential vitamins such as C, A and E. The vent system eliminates air bubbles in the formula or milk, which helps to reduce feeding problems like colic, spit-up, burping and gas. Dr. Brown’s bottles are completely BPA, PVC, lead and phthalate free for your baby’s safety. The Newborn Feeding Set comes with 3 8oz/240ml Standard bottles, 2 4oz/120ml Standard bottle, 2 extra Level-Two silicone nipples, 2 Storage/Travel caps and 3 “cleaning” brushes are small nipple brushes and they are INSIDE the bottles.
My son was exclusively breastfed until I had to go back to work and had to start bottle feeding. I had no experience using a bottle and wasn’t sure which ones to use. I tried a lot of other brands of bottles and all of them he seemed to swallow a lot of air which gave him terrible gas and stomach pains to the point that he would be up crying all night. A friend of mine told me I needed to try the Dr. Brown’s bottles and since using them I have noticed a very clear difference.
Dr. Brown’s bottles made it very easy to bottle feed for both my baby and I. He doesn’t have the same problem latching that he had with the other bottles and the nipples are very easy for him to use. They also have have a really slow flow, so the baby swallows less air when he’s eating which makes him have less gas and colic and it’s very clear that he is not in pain like he used to be. He has not needed to burp as much as he used to on the other bottles and his spitting up has decreased by a lot. I can see very clearly that he is a way happier baby since I started using these.
The only bad things I can say about these is they do leak a little bit if you leave them lying on their side. Since I noticed that I have been pretty careful about keeping them upright and I have not noticed any leaking while upright or feeding. There is also a lot of pieces to clean which can be a hassle until you get the hang of it. I have to use the little brush that comes with these and clean out the little attachments to make sure that they are fully sanitized. It’s a little difficult and time consuming at first but it gets easier the more you do it.
All things considered it is a really great product and if your baby is suffering from colic or gas I would definitely recommend trying these out. I am extremely happy with these bottles and they have made a huge difference with my son. I will never go back to using any other brand after seeing the difference these make in his health and happiness and I will definitely be repurchasing this product.
