Hi, this is my first post on this site. We are bottle feeding our daughter, as my wife is unable to breast feed due to the condition which resulted in the birth of our daughter Rachel 10 weeks premature.I am a stay at home Dad, and as such I have had time to experiment with bottles. We have tried Playtex Vent-flow (with no success), Johnson's Healthflow (better, but still a back-up bottle) and Avent (Excellent, but expensive). I was tipped off to try Wal-Mart's Parents Choice brand of reusable bottles ($2.95 for a 9oz.)and I have to say we found them to be the best so far. The bottle and nipple are similar to the Avent, at $1.00 less a bottle. The differences (thinner bottle with a more gradual hour glass shape, and a rounder nipple) seem to make the Parents Choice more agreeable to Rachel. I would recommend that anyone looking for a good bottle try Parents Choice.
