When I tried to tip the formula out to test the temp it kind of sprayed out in an arc rather than dripped out. The bottles we use are tommee tippee closer to nature only been using them since weds - have I broken them ?! Help please my dd is hollering and have sent hubby out on urgent rush to shops to get more bottles and ready made formula and he's not back yet !!

Sounds ok, is it still constantly running out? I had the same ones and the used to do it but I think it was just a build up of air inside after I screwed the lid on tight. It was normally fine after the first forced out flow, if u know what I mean?

Yeah it's just kind of spraying the milk out in a single thin stream of milk and I thought they were meant to kind of drip out? New to ff and so terrified of choking her or something !!

When my DD has EBM from one, if I've just warned it up and it's a tad too warm it will arc out. Normal I think!

Have you tried squeezing the valve on the underside of the teat? It might have closed up.

Ok now feel v silly , tried the bottles again and the milk started dripping out think it was either too hot or trapped air in bottle maybe as suggested , d'oh!! Thanks everyone for your help.
