Most Helpful Reviews on The First Years Breastflow Bottle

  • 5.0 out of 5 stars(5/5) – 12/18/2008 – … We had no issues with going between breast and bottle because they require the same latching as on a breast. I think this also helped with gas and overfeeding since the baby controls the flow…. (read more and buy it at Amazon.com)
  •   2.0 out of 5 stars(2/5) – 2/16/2011 – … The double nipple system is supposed to allow the baby to control the flow, what results however is that the outer nipple fills with milk and then collapses while the baby continues to suckle-and that makes (our) baby MAD….

  • 5.0 out of 5 stars(5/5) – 9/1/2010 – …  All parts break apart to clean super easy and it really simulates breatfeeding since it takes more work (much like what the breast does)…. (read more and buy it at Diapers.com)
  • 5.0 out of 5 stars(5/5) – 5/31/2010 – This product is great for breastfeeding mothers…. The bottles have one more piece to clean then other bottles but it is worth it. Also a couple of handy things about them is that they come with a lid so you can use the lid and store milk in them or mix formula on the go without it getting clumped in the nipple….

  • 5.0 out of 5 stars(5/5) – 3/1/2011 – … The Breastflow BPA Free Bottles are designed with an inner and outer nipple. This helps the baby to use compression to draw the milk – the same way that he would while breastfeeding. In other words, it simulates the natural let-down that the breast does. It also helps babies to go from using the Breastflow bottle and back again to the breast comfortably with no confusion…. (read more and buy it at Target.com)
  • 5.0 out of 5 stars(5/5) – 8/11/2011 – … no complaints with powder other than it will splatter during shaking unless you use the cap or storage lid, but to me this is to be expected this bottle is designed for babies who are breast fed and need supplemental feeds, so it was not designed to use with powder…. the only complaint we have is, I wish they had the inner and outer nipples for sale separately we only need to replace the nipples because the inner ones wore and didn’t fare as good in the dish washer, and they do not sale replacement bottle caps at all….
