Hate Tommee Tippee bottles - alternative needed

I hate them..

We had to use some cheap boots bottles for first few weeks as the teats were just too flexible and as she didn't latch very well we couldn't get them in, the boots ones were much better but sometimes squirted milk out so fast it made her sick so back on the T T bottles but I hate them..they dribble all down her neck while she's drinking, something the Boots ones didn't do. so I am looking for suggestions for a bottle that has slow flow teat, that isn't super flexible/bendy and mainly doesn't cause dribble issues. Can anyone help?

I changed from TT for the same reasons to NUK - never looked back! She even broke wind ALOT easier

I've used the Mam ones this time round. Self sterilising, anti colic ones. I've found a lot of other mums I know use them too. Used TT last time, but DS2 didn't get on with them.

I use the MAM anti-colic ones too. DD can dribble a bit with them but nothing too bad.

Ah thank you! I'm glad I'm not the only one who doesn't like! They were highly recommended by a friend! confused

Can I ask what self sterilising means?

I use tommee tippee and Dr Browns. But the Dr Browns are better

The MAM self sterilising bottles just mean that you can sterilise them in the microwave with some water in the bottom of each bottle (bottle dismantled with teat at bottom in water) so there is no need for a separate sterilising machine and it only takes a few min

Thanks PotatoBread!

I will have a look at all three suggestions! Thanks all!

Another vote for MAM bottles and we tried a load of them. These were the only ones that my baby settles on and helped with winding.

Oh yes. We have NUK ones too but also loved the MAM ones as well grin

MAMs or Nuby's seem to be a massive hit with my LO - is for nuby bottles, they usually have a few on sale. He likes the teats on both, they have slow flow ones and you can get a microwave streliser for the nuby bottles which isn't too big.

Another vote for Mam. They're the only ones DS will take. It's the first time I've been able to have a break in months! And the self sterilising thing is really handy too.
