TILT: Playtex Nurser

In my 3 years and almost 4 months of being a mother, I have fixed/fed/cleaned a lot of bottles. A lot. Really. We have primarily used the very inexpensive simple Gerber or Evenflo classic bottles; we've never been thrilled with them, but they're cheap. We have one of the BPA-free Avent bottles; the wide mouth is great, but they sometimes leak & soak the baby.

When we accidentally left the diaper bag behind in Florida and didn't discover it until we were a couple of hours down the road, I had to stop at a store to get bottles. I decided to give the Playtex Drop-Ins Premium Nurser a try, since I could just switch out the liner & wash the nipple for the different feedings as we traveled.

I am in love with this system!! We now have two of the nursers and 4 of the rapid-flow nipples (the bottles come packaged w/ slow-flow), and I would rather use them than any of our other bottles. Not only are they simple to clean, but you don't even have to wash the nurser at every feeding. A quick wash of the ring, a new liner, a clean nipple, and you're good to go. The mouth of the liners & bottles is wide, making it easier to mix formula. Also? They do not leak. Ever.

I can't believe I didn't try them sooner! For more recommendations, visit Things I Love Thursday at The Diaper Diaries!

We use them too. In fact, I used them with my first, seventeen years ago ;-) The only downfall is the cost of buying liners....that gets old.

Target has Up & Up version of the liners that is less expensive.

And, yes, these bottles have been wonderful for YEARS. My cousin used three Playtex Nursers that her mother had found in the attic from when she was a baby thirty-some years before. The rings are the same size so all she had to do was buy new nipples for them. We now pass the bottles around in the family to whomever can use them at the moment.

I used Avent with my first two but now I am in love with Born Free. They are a bit pricier though. I have never tried these.
