If you get them, get the kind that has the markings molded in the plastic. The blue painted on kind wore off with my 3rd child, which was kinda a pain. Granted, it was the 3rd child that was using the same set of bottles...
I too had some of the paint come off the bottle on nearly brand new bottles. I was mortified when I saw some inside the nipple mixed in with his milk. Thoroughly my fault for not making sure no flecks of paint were left inside the bottle but I won't be using Dr. Browns anymore. Plus they are a pain to clean and we don't go through enough dishes to use the dishwasher everyday.

We used them and its not rocket science to clean them I took all of the parts and put them in them bottle basket made for the dishwasher. Easy I also made sure I had 2-3 extra of each part. My kids did great on these and neither spit up much if at all.

Re: Dr. Browns bottles

They are great if your baby is prone to gas. I got them for DS because she had such a terrible latch as a newbie. These helped.

They come with cleaning brushes for the small parts now. I have no problem getting them clean with a regular bottle brush and the tiny one that comes with it.

Get the newborn feeding set - it's the best price. You can also get the on FSOT sometimes.

Re: Dr. Browns bottles

We don't have a real fancy dishwasher, just a normal one. But it has a "top rack only" option for those who complain they can't fill a dishwasher enough to run it every day. You could just put all the bottles and stuff in the top rack and run it like that. I think it's a shorter cycle too, but to be honest I almost never use it because I am a SAHM and DH works nights, so between us and DS eating 3 meals a day at home, we do go through a dishwasher every day or so.

Well, with 9 kids I run the dishwasher 2-3 times a day, every day! I did buy the drying rack because I figure I won't have enough room in the dishwasher since I wash so many dishes!

Re: Dr. Browns bottles

I went through a few other brands before discovering dr browns. I am hooked! They are worth every penny and every extra washing step... I washed by hand with my first daughter and this time invested in the dishwasher racks - brilliant! Soooo easy. I also recommend the formula mixing pitcher (no clumps, no bubbles), the bottle heater, and the drying racks.

I'm a fan and don't find cleaning them too much of an issue.

I hated Dr. Browns. I used both Avent and Born Free instead. My sister used and lived them though.
