I can only say how extremely difficult and annoying they are to clean, with the narrow necked ones being more difficult and annoying. Good bottles for what they are designed for; just a lot of trouble.

My daughter was using Avent bottles for the first 3 weeks of life, however she was terribly gassy, fussy, and consistently crying.

We switched to the regular (I guess those are the narrow neck) Dr. Browns bottles, and she did great with the switch. The avent were wide.

She is a whole new baby. No more crying/gas! They do have additional parts, but I really haven't noticed that it takes any longer to clean.

I swear by these bottles!

Well I have about 16 narrow and 3 wide.
I prefer the narrow as does my son, and don't think they're much work cleaning as any other bottle I've used.

We use the wide neck bottles and they have been great for my little girls colic. I don't think they take that much longer to clean and even if they do it is worth it.

We wash in the dishwasher only, and I dont like my wide neck ones. Ive got like 6 regular and 3 wide. I dont even bother getting the wides out, her mouth looked odd on the nipple of the wide bottle. It just annoyed me, thats all. Haha

Narrow. The teat of the wide neck is really weird. My son just chewed on it and it took him forever to drink one oz. We love the narrow ones though!

I love the wide. Easier to put formula in and stir with a spoon. It's also shorter and feels better for me to hold. I like the wide in the cup holder in the car too. The wider seems to be made out of a different plastic, or at least mine are. The wide is much smoother.
I do agree these take forever to clean properly, and I have to do it every day.

I use the wide neck ones which have made the world of difference to my baby's trapped wind. They ae a bit of a faff to clean but it's not that bad. I didn't consider using the narrow ones, for people who do what is the difference in the teats? My baby seems to click the teat a lot, I upped it to a level 2 teat but he still does it - would the narrow bottles be better? He's 6 weeks. Sorry for jumping on this thread!
