My son was exclusively breastfed until 3 months. I began to pump and bottle feed using Philips Avent bottles. He immediately began to reflux his milk. This went on for a few weeks. When I returned to work my milk supply diminished over time and I had to formula feed. My son developed sever digestion issues. He would almost always spit up after every feeding. After visiting with the dr we decided to put him on medication to help control the reflux. Around 6 months of age he Began to vomit severely after one or two feedings a day and then by 7 months he was refusing to eat from a bottle. He never would eat more than 4 oz at a time before that. Finally my doctor recommended switching bottles. She named off a few brands. I had heard some great things about dr Browns bottles from other friends who have infants. I wish I would have made the switch sooner. Upon his first feeding from the dr Browns bottle he had eaten an entire 6 oz bottle with absolutely no gagging, coughing, or spitting up. I was still hesitant but after an hour with no vomiting episode I was sold. We went and purchased 10 more. Now only two weeks later he is up to 8 oz per feeding and hasn't spit up or vomitted one time. I'm hoping that this leads to him being taken off the medication at his next check up. Thank you for making such an awesome product!
My baby girl had gas and was fussy at every feeding I tried playtex, avent and born free and she still was fussy! I switched her to dr, brown at 3 months and the first feeding with the bottle was a instant result! She is now 8 months old my girl burps easily, not gassy anymore and the bottles are perfect size she held them at 4 months old by herself with no problem. And I love the colors and holiday designs. It's not that easy to clean but it's worth every minute cleaning them because my girl feeds peacefully and does not have any problems with it. I love dr, brown bottles and recommend it to all mommy and moments to be. Thanks Dr, brown!
We have had to use the Dr. Brown bottles since my baby was one week old as he wasn't gaining from breast milk alone so we had to supplement formula. They were recommended by our lactation consultant after we half hazardly purchased a random set of avent bottles not thinking it mattered. Our poor little one was so gassy! Once we made the switch, we saw a marked improvement to his gas!
