Advice on bottles

(12 Posts)

We are just starting to buy for the baby. In second trimester now, first baby!
We bought tommee tippee bottles and steriliser set in the babies r us sale. Since buying it in the last two hours we have had nothing but negative comments. Told the bottles cause colic and babies don't get on with the teets.

Can I ask your opinions?

Thanks in advance x

My DD has been fine using those bottles.

We also have some doctor brown bottles which did seem to help when she had some problems keeping her milk down. But those problems were not caused by the TT bottles. From the start she would throw up after every feed (even in the hospital- she had a lot of mucus when she was born which was coming up).

The doctor brown bottles are a pain to clean IMO (too many parts) so we only used them for a few weeks until she was managing to keep her feeds down.

DD would only take Dr Brown's bottles but all babies are different and I don't think it was because there was anything wrong with our Tommy Tippee ones, she just preferred the Dr Browns ones. However we didn't introduce a bottle until 5 months which I think makes it harder. If you're bottle feeding from birth I can't see any reasons your baby won't take to Tommy Tippee.

I've used them for 4 children. Never had any problems with them

We bought loads of tt bottles and steriliser etc dd couldn't get away with them but lots of babies do we ended up changing to dr browns after a few days so now have a cupboard full of tt ones you will have to just try them and see, the midwife told me some babies cant manage them as the neck is too wide for them when tiny but can normally tolerate them when a bit older
