    Hi Ladies

    I occasionally express milk for my little boy who is 6 weeks old. I bought the medula mini pump which works fine for the amount I need to use it (this was after buying the tommy tippee pump which was useless!!). The bottles I have tried to use are also the tommee tippee (they came with the rubbish pump I bought). However my LO is not getting on with these bottles at all the flow is to fast for him and he coughs and splutters when trying to use them.

    When we were in hospital with him he got on really well with the disposable Cow and Gate Teats but I dont know what bottles they would fit onto? Also it may be best to have bottles and teats I can reuse.

    Can anyone give me some advice please?

    Thanks :thumbup:

    My baby had c&G disposal ones in hospital for 10 days. Now on avent bottles with +1 month teat and works well for us ..... maybe try those and you can always buy bigger teats when they get older.
