Frustrating flow rate
I have been using these nipples for a month now and have been very frustrated. I bought both the bottle and the nipples new about a month ago. It is labeled as "1 month or more" but my little one is now 3 months old and still having difficulty with the flow rate. Whenever I give her a bottle, a LOT of formula runs down her chin. If it doesn't, she cries because she takes it in too quickly and thinks she's still hungry. I love the Natural bottles that go with this nipple, but the flow rate is not on target.

I love these! The other reviewer may possibly be using the new nipple design in the old/original Avent bottles. If you do that, they will leak like crazy, since they're not meant to be used in the old bottle designs. If you use these with the new bottles as they are intended to be used, they are perfect!!

I have used Avent bottles with my first child, so when I had my second child I went back to Avent. I tried these new nipples and all they did was leak!! Half of the formula ended up on my babies clothes due to a leak from the nipple. I made sure I had the nipples inserted in the bottle correctly but still they leaked. After a few days of leaks and messes, I went back to the store and bought the original Avent nipple......no more leaks!!!
