  • At first the flow was too high for my little guy so O went with preemie ones. Now he is using 1s and is doing great with them! Easy to clean with a nipple sponge. Click tight. Nov 03, 2019

    I have these in a size 1, 2 and 3. These standard size nipples are the ones my baby took to. Oct 04, 2019

  • I used preemie and stage 1 nipples for all 4 of my kids. The original nipple is just fine all the way until they are done with the bottle. Sep 04, 2019

  • These work well, but make sure that you have the correct size for the type of bottle. The widemouth options are different than the narrowmouth ones and can lead to leaking. Aug 01, 2019

  • Great and durable ,but a little pricey to replace on bottles . Jul 24, 2019

  • Initially our daughter took to these well. Very similar to the nipples on the formula samples given at the hospital. Eventually she needed a wider mouth bottle so we switched. Apr 29, 2019

  • High quality nipples. We don't even have Dr. Brown's bottles, but we switched to these to control the flow better for our baby. Worth trying if you have narrow-neck bottles. Apr 29, 2019

  • These are the only nipples my daughter would use. Literally. Feb 14, 2019

  • We love the entire Dr. Brown series. However, the level 1 nipple may be too heavy of a flow for some babies. My 2-month-old still uses the Dr. Brown preemie nipple. Same nipple, smaller hole. Jan 29, 2019

    Size 2 since birth. Size 4 when adding oatmeal to bottle. Size 3 for 6months+. Size 3 safe to avoid eating too fast if baby has reflux. Only fits Dr Browns bottles exclusively. Jan 10, 2019

  • We only used dr.bowns nipples because they fit on Medela bottles. They worked well for our little one. Nov 11, 2018

  • They became very dingy and nasty looking after using them a few times no matter how much I washed them they never looked cleaned Sep 29, 2018

  • Easy to understand level system. Like how the website provides info for when to advance baby to next nipple level. Preemie and level 1 were used initially but we’ve now gone to level 2 (3 months old) Aug 21, 2018

  • Hate these Aug 14, 2018

  • These work well and my baby liked them Aug 01, 2018

    Level 1 comes with the bottles. The flow was too fast for baby’s first few months so I used the Preemie size. Level 2 is too fast at 8 months, so I’m still using Level 1. They hold up really well. Jun 08, 2018

  • I love that these are slower flow then other bottles/nipples . Jun 01, 2018

  • Flow is slow for my baby and can put with Medela bottles, even though not a tight fit, doesn’t leak. Wish nipples had wider base, more like breast. May 01, 2018

  • A nice feature of dr brown bottles is that you can change nipple flow size as baby grows. It has a great slow flow premie size which is perfect for babies who are also breastfed. Apr 20, 2018

  • My daughter bottle fed from day one and had no problem taking to these dr. Browns nipples! We were so happy we didnt have issues with them, and there so easy to clean. Definitely using with our second Feb 26, 2018

  • These are very durable and hold up after many washings. Feb 21, 2018

  • The shapes of them are perfect for a baby with a lip tie. It isn't large and fits in his mouth. He will only drink with these nipples. Jan 23, 2018

  • My son hated the shape of these. Dec 28, 2017

  • We loved these and were bummed we had to buy new ones when they went to wide in glass only. Nov 10, 2017

  • My son used these and the preemie nipples and the only issue we had was milk leaking off to the side of his mouth. Overall they are nice and last a while! Oct 20, 2017

  • My BF baby takes these Oct 18, 2017

    I've used the preemie size since my non-preemie twins were born, and they have taken to them great with no nipple confusion when nursing. We keep with the preemie flow to keep it more like nursing. Oct 18, 2017

    Works great with the bottles to prevent spit up. Oct 18, 2017

  • Great material. Long lasting. Can see the clean. Oct 17, 2017

  • If you are using with Dr. Brown bottles. Jul 31, 2017

  • I use these with Dr. Brown options bottle. I like that you can buy separate nipples to adjust the flow Jul 23, 2017

  • After trying many nipple shapes, my son likes this one. Some are too flexible but this one is just the right amount of firmness. It's smaller than otjer brands, which he likes May 31, 2017

  • Baby easily latched to bottle feed with these nipples. May 28, 2017

  • Easy to clean, durable, and great flow speed! Apr 28, 2017

    Love the premi ultra size for my breastfeeding baby! Apr 07, 2017

  • These are great nipples to have on hand in case one gets lost or ruined. Feb 14, 2017
