    It worked and was the right flow progression. May 10, 2024

  • Both babies favorite nipple. Flow was easy for them. Easy to clean. Apr 04, 2024

  • The flow of this nipple is way to fast. Just holding it upside down has water dripping quickly out. Baby doesn't have to do a lot of work to get it to flow which is not ideal for breastfeeding. Mar 31, 2024

  • Started out great for newborn with NB and 1 sizes. As baby got bigger, the latch on the nipple became narrow and shallow or looked off. We ended up switching to MAM and the latch looked more natural. Nov 08, 2023

  • Love that it comes in different sizes , premature saved us and finally allowed my daughter to be successful with feeds to come home after 8 weeks in NICU Sep 23, 2023

    Too narrow for baby to wrap mouth around, causes baby to leak milk Jul 31, 2023

  • BEST NIPPLES EVER. Dr Browns is one of the most thorough brands. It really is with you from newborn stage to toddler and up!! Jun 15, 2023

  • Love all the different flow speeds. Worked well for my breastfed baby. May 26, 2023

    The best nipples for my breastfed son, he latches on with no problems at all Apr 28, 2023

  • I find the price is quite reasonable to move up different levels as your baby needs. I like that there are Y cut options for thickened formula as well. Also, there are extra preemie options if needed Apr 24, 2023

  • Don't forget to go up a level on nipples as your kiddo grows - was nice to have extras on hand. Feb 13, 2023

    Always have extra nipples! Jan 09, 2023

  • Although my son had latching issues he did well with this nipple when he was still on regular bottles Dec 03, 2022

  • Everything Dr brown's makes is good! I've used their products for 16 years! Nov 21, 2022

    My baby is in the AR formula and this one is perfect for her to suck through. Bought the preemie nipples but they were way to small this is perfect for AR formula and still slow for a BF baby! Oct 27, 2022

  • The only nipples my baby likes. These are a life saver. Especially since they come in different flow options. Sep 16, 2022

  • Didn’t love these but also don’t hate them, I don’t like they leak Feb 11, 2022

    Best nipples for my breastfed baby! He had a small mouth as a newborn and these were the only nipples he could get his mouth fully around so we have stuck with them! Sep 06, 2021

  • These do the job and have held up well physically to many washes. They have gotten a little discolored over time, maybe from formula or our water. Jan 05, 2021

  • Sometimes they are fine and sometimes I find the flow to be way too fast or way too slow. Seems that occasionally I will get a bad batch or something. Sep 16, 2020

  • I definitely recommend these nipples. They are soft, have a consistent flow rate and are easy to clean. Baby prefers the #1 even though he’s 5mths. He drinks without coughing or choking. Recommend May 18, 2020

    Very durable nipples. Also dishwasher safe which a appreciate. These bottle nipples truly hold up! May 06, 2020

  • These clean up well and have perfect flow (number) matched with babies age (see the chart), which helped me know when to move up a size. Apr 20, 2020

  • I wish I would have purchased a slower flow nipple but I have been using these and breastfeeding since my twins were born and haven't had any nipple confusion issues Feb 10, 2020

  • These work great for my breastfed baby! Jan 17, 2020

    My baby loves how easy they are. Jan 11, 2020

  • 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

  • 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
