Bottles for preemies

What is your favorite bottle? I have tried the medela slow flow and it still chokes them sometimes. I only do 3 bottles a day. Breast for the rest.

I used the Ready Feed Enfamil Nursers with preemie nipples when she first came home (hopsital gave us a few to take home). Then I was using Dr.Brown's preemie bottles, they seemed to help with her refluz it wasnt as bad when I was using these bottles and the nipples were tiny.

Re: Bottles for preemies

I love love love the comotomo bottle, though I've only tried it with breast milk. It's boob shaped and I found it actually helped with my preemie's latch. It only releases milk when he actually sucks, so he never gets flooded and it's super easy to clean.

Re: Bottles for preemies

we didn't use them, but i know alot of preemie parents like the dr. brown's preemie nipple. we had to use a medium flow nip. because DS would get too tired and worn out on anything slower.

I second Dr. Browns with preemie nipples. They were a life saver for us.
