I'm curious which nipples and bottles have worked for those of you with preemies. Maija started daycare last week, and her sitter is complaining that the bottle nipples we provided are just too big for her mouth. We currently use the silicone Natural Latch Playtex nurser system. She recommended we try Dr. Brown (the slim one, not the contoured one). We did, and that nipple did seem to work better for Maija. But I have to be brutally honest... I really do not like those bottles at all. The nipple is great, but I can't stand that straw contraption. I am totally willing to do whatever is best for Maija, and if these Dr. Brown bottles are best, I will use them.
But I would love to hear what the rest of you have had success with!!
Also if anyone loves the Dr. Brown system, let me know. My problems with it are: 1) I don't trust that the straw contraption is getting clean when I wash it. 2) The extra piece is just a hassle. 3) A good friend that I trust completely told me that they leak like crazy when transported. 4) They are expensive.
