Best bottles for premies?

Best bottles for a preemie baby? He has a big problem sucking in too much air and leaking all his formula out. I’ve tried dr browns and avent brand.

Have you tried bottles with liners? You can squeeze all the air out or at least most. We found it very helpful

Mam is what I tried first for my baby (2 weeks early) he got too much too fast and spit up way too much. I went to the kiinde twist natural latch and it’s so much better.

We ended up having to use the nipples from the hospital ( one time use preemie similac ) they fit onto our dr browns bottles and worked better than dr browns nipples, think it was the softness of the rubber.

I would say syringe feeding… you control the flow and the amount given until the baby can be bug enough to handle the flow of an actual bottle

Mine took the playtex drop ins with the breastlike nipple from Amazon. He was a late term preemie, born at 35&6.

My son liked the Nuk Bottles he was 32wks

I always used playtex nursers or vent air. Nursers use the drop in liners so you can push all the excess air out. Highly recommend

Have you tried the Preemie flow nipple for Dr. Browns? There’s also a new Newborn flow nipple that’s not sold in stores and only on their website, it’s the level under 1.

Search amazon for special nipples to put on whatever bottle brand you usually buy

Mam bottles I got a premie and he took to them lovely :blush:

I like dr.browns. they make preemie nipples that work really well.

These the nipples are smaller around than another’s besides the hospital little tiny bottles.

Our NICU started my preemie on Dr Browns and they have a preemie nipple that she stayed on for awhile. She used the dr browns her whole first year.
