Asher loved the Born Free wide neck glass bottles. We only needed the 5oz bottles, they are soooo easy to clean!

Asher is 16 mo and still nursing, I pumped while working and he never had an issue going between me and the bottle

I actually have those and he won't take them. sigh. We've been working on it this past week. I worked this Saturday for a few hours and my husband had a rough time getting him to take a bottle at first, but he did end up taking a Tommee Tippee bottle and a Klean Kanteen bottle so hopefully he will get used to the KK bottles because I really like that they're not plastic. I'm gonna hang onto my Born Free glass bottles to see if he will take those again after he's more used to bottles. Thanks for all of the advice!

We had issues too, starting with the Playtex drop-in liners. We sought a lactation consultant.

Our lactation consultant said Dr. Browns were great for BF babies. The wide base isn't as important as the nipple shape. She also said not to move off level one nipples as the flow will be faster than the breast, and could make baby prefer bottle for quicker satiation.

She told my hubby to Position baby sitting more upright so he had to work the bottle nipple for the milk, instead of it pouring down his throat while he was reclined.

This worked for for us instantly, I was so glad, because we had been struggling for a couple of weeks before. We have Dr. Brown's bottles in class too. We love them!
