Ds is ff. He has such bad colic/wind which is at its worst in the morning 4-7am after his night feed. It seems like he doesn't latch well into the bottle and takes a lot of air down as he seems to slurp. Any ideas/tips on how to resolve this?

Dr Brown's bottles are recommended for this kind of situation (I think Avent does one as well). They are a faff to clean and prepare, but very popular nonetheless.

I use NUK bottles. Had been using dr browns then tried nuk. Made a huge difference.

Another Dr Brown's fan here. Also try adjusting teat flow / size.

We used man bottles. The Nicu recommended mam or nuk for premmies as their immature digestive systems tend to mean they suffer badly with wind.
