A great bottle with a great variety
I am super happy that this set works for my gassy baby because we have tried other bottles in the past and they all seem to make him gassier. This is because he doesn’t seem to latch properly on any other nipple and this lets air get in and he swallows it resulting in an uncomfortable feeding experience. I honestly did not have a lot of hope going into using this bottle just because I have not had any luck previously but I was definitely pleasantly surprised. This set can either come in a five ounce bottle that has a slow flow nipple or an eight ounce bottle that has a medium flow nipple. I bought the five ounce nipple when we first started my son on these but he has since worked his way up to an eight ounce.
This set has so many great features
One of the things I like and it is just like an added bonus is the dark numbers on the side of the bottle. A lot of times the numbers are white or almost clear and that makes it very hard for me to see how much my son is actually getting in a feeding. Because this bottle has such dark numbers it is easy to see without having to hold it up to the light. I also like that this bottle is really easy to clean. Usually I use my Phillips AVENT 3-in-1 Electric Steam Sterilizer to clean it but a couple of times I have washed them by hand and it is easy to get into the cracks with a bottle brush. There aren’t a lot of little pieces or anything so I really am impressed with that.
A couple ways Medela could improve
After a while of using these bottles I noticed that the nipples would collapse and it would create a weird suction between the baby’s mouth and the bottle. Nothing that I noticed was dangerous but I was concerned. I decided to go up a size to the medium flow because I thought maybe the problem was that the flow was not fast enough for her. The medium flow worked perfectly and fixed that problem right up for me. I also do not recommend putting these in the dishwasher. I washed these in the dishwasher one morning without thinking and the numbers started to fade. I definitely recommend hand washing them or investing in a bottle sterilizer.
A great bottle set from Medela
I really like this set. I think it is perfect and I love the fact that it doesn’t only come with the standard bottle and nipple but also the bottle caps and nipple covers. This is just an added bonus but it is a really nice additive and shows that the company really thinks about the consumer and what the consumer needs. I will continue to use this set and brand as long as I need bottles. I highly recommend trying these bottles out.
