Question What bottles/nipples for thick formula?

Hi,
We just started our daughter on Enfamil AR, which is thicker b/c of reflux. We have Born Free bottles, and Babies R Us is always out of the nipples we need.

Can anybody recommend bottles and/or nipples for thicker formula? She's two months old.

Thanks in advance!

I don't know what works with the Born Free bottles.. but we used Dr Browns bottles (they were supposed to be the best for gas, but they were a pain to clean). They have a standard size nipple in level 1, 2, 3 and a y-cut (for rice cereal thickness). If your bottles take a standard size nipple, you could try those. We were on AR for a while (it only helped for a couple of weeks and we had to switch again), but I think we used a level 2. If I remember right, the AR formula is only slightly thicker as they are drinking it, but it thickens in their tummy so you wouldn't want to go too fast of a flow.

I'm pretty sure there are quite a few brands that have the different flow nipples...

My oldest was on Enfamil AR ready to feed & we used the Avent bottles w/the regular nipples with no problemsIts really not that much thicker than regular formula

I was in Whole Foods today (Park & Preston in Plano) & saw a few Born Free nipples on the top shelf.

We were on a thicker formula, and I bought a Gerber nipple with an X cut in it. I don't know if they still make those, but I would take an Exacto and do it myself if necessary.

Micah was on AR too, we just got the fast-flow nipples and those worked great.

We used the dr browns with a y cut nipple for chase when i gave him cereal in his bottles. My first son, Caden, had reflux really bad and we used to give him cereal mixed with breastmilk in his avent bottles with the y cut nipple.

I just got chase the born free trainer cups and i got him a variable nipple that might work for cereal. if you turn the nipple one way its a level 1 flow, the other way its level 2 and the 3rd way its a level 3.
