my nearly 4month old suffers with Colic. I breastfeed her during the day then she has 1 bottle of SMA formula before bed. 2 people have recommende Dr brown's bottles to help reduce Colic but I already have loads of tommee tippee bottles and the steriliser. Has anyone tried the anti-Colic tommee tippee bottles, if so would you recommend them?

I've always used Tommee Tippee bottles and really rate them, although several of my friends use Dr Browns and say they're great - not helping much am I grin If its only one bottle I'd be tempted to go with the TT as you have the bottles already. Like I said I've always used them and dd3 (5 months) uses the anti-colic ones.

We had exactly the same issue but dd was four weeks and not four months. We had been mix feeding using tommee tippee bottles and have the tommee tippee steriliser but when we tried the tt anti colic bottles her wind got a lot worse. We perservered with them and tried gripe water and colief too but nothing seemed to be working. Although the Dr Browns bottles are expensive they are worth every penny and although dd still suffers a little with wind overnight she is SO much better than she was and we are so much happier as we're finally getting some sleep! Even if it's just for one feed a day I would recommend Dr Browns! As with all things though, every baby is different and what works for one may not work for another. Good luck!
