The unique venting system on Dr. Brown’s bottles eliminates air bubbles during feeding (which can make newborns bloated and uncomfortable) and maintains nutrients that normally breakdown when exposed to oxygen.
The bottles have the traditional, narrow shape, and getting all the parts clean requires a special brush that’s included in the kit. Travel caps, also in the kit, are lids you screw onto the bottle neck for when you’re on the go. Just pack the nipple and the two-part vent insert for when it’s time to eat.
When newborns first start bottle feeding, doctors recommend using a “slow flow” nipple (also called Level 1), so that the baby doesn’t get too much milk at once. Also if you are switching back and forth from breast to bottle, slow flow nipples can prevent babies from getting too attached to the bottle. Around three months old, your baby will probably be ready to graduate to Level 2. This starter kit includes 5 Level 1 nipples and 2 Level 2 nipples, so you will be all set for six months.
Although Dr. Brown’s bottles are a standout when it comes to battling colic and other tummy woes associated with too much air intake, it’s a process to clean all the parts and if you don’t put everything back together just so, they can leak.
