Ds is mixed fed and the bottles leak, randomly, all the time. Any advice anyone please? Have tried everything I can think of! I am reluctant to switch as don't want his bottle feeds at be any easier as he's not a big fan of 'working' at the boob anyway. Thank you.

Breastflow bottles are a bit of a leaking nightmare. Are you definitely not overfilling them? Medela Calma, I believe, are similar to Breastflow in that the baby has to work a bit harder to get the milk out. Alternatively, a latex teated bottle like a Nuk with the smallest hole?

Thank you, we tried calma a couple of times several weeks ago but ds got very upset as if he didn't know what to do. Perhaps we should try again. i suppose i am a bit reluctant as i dont want to upset him. It's weird actually because we have small and big bottles, and the small ones seem to leak less, even when we put a 200ml carton in! We also tried the nuk and he didn't seem to know what to do at all and the teat kept collapsing.
