Can anyone recommend a bottle that comes with a super slow teat? My baby is breast fed but we're trying to introduce one bottle a day but he keeps choking on the milk and getting upset as it comes out the teat too fast!

Is there a bottle we can try with a very slow teat? Someone mentioned avent newborn?

We use Medela - they look v weird and it took our newborn a few tries to get the hang of it but they have to create a vacuum to get the milk so it doesn't come as quickly and they're not supposed to get as lazy using them. Expensive though. Def need to persevere for a fair few feeds though with them as I say as the technique for them getting the milk is so different from normal bottles may take a little time to get the hang of it and be able to get anything out!
