From The Manufacturer

The Dr. Brown’s Natural Flow Wide-Neck Baby Bottles offer a wonderful feeding experience with innovative vent technology. Dr Brown’s bottles use a patented 2-piece internal vent system for your baby’s comfort. This system creates positive-pressure flow for vacuum-free feeding that is similar to breastfeeding. The breast milk or formula flows freely without nipple collapse. As the baby feeds, air is channeled from the nipple collar through the vent system to the back of the bottle. Air never mixes with the breast milk or formula so oxidation is prevented, thereby maintaining essential vitamins such as C, A and E. The vent system eliminates air bubbles in the formula or milk, which helps to reduce feeding problems like colic, spit-up, burping and gas. Dr. Brown’s bottles are completely BPA, PVC, lead and phthalate free for your baby’s safety. Each bottle comes with 1 Level-One silicone nipple, 1 two-piece patented internal vent system, 1 cleaning brush and instructions. To Prevent Leaking: Do not shake bottles; Do not warm bottles with parts inside; Make sure you are using the correct nipple level for baby.

Expert Reviews

What reviewers liked

A popular design that reduces tummy issues with its patented internal vent construction. Wide design mimics natural breastfeeding.
We’ve been using–and enjoying– Dr. Brown’s bottles for about six weeks now. A friend of mine who also uses them claims they leak, but we’ve never had a problem.
The air bypasses the breast milk or formula and goes back to the bottle. For that reason, this is our favorite glass bottle to reduce gas, burping, spitting up and colic.
It also helps with digestion as your baby drinks from Dr. Brown’s nipple as well as a relatively slow flow and controlled nipple.
Also, they love how well these bottles reduce the amount of air their babies take in.
- Omaby
This is one of the bottles I used with my first born and it did a perfect job at preventing her from swallowing too much air during feeding.
The vacuum-free feeding also helps reduce fluid in the ear. It ensures that the milk in the bottles flows out the nipple while the air is channeled through a tube to the other end to eliminate nipple collapse.

What reviewers didn't like

Tends to leak when when shaken, making mixing formula in them difficult.
My only complaint is the nipples are a bit long for newborns.
They are a bit heavier than normal bottles.
If you don’t have the nipple and cap on perfectly straight, you will likely deal with leakage and dribbling when feeding your baby.
Time consuming to clean
- Omaby
Too many parts to disassemble and assemble so cleaning can be quite tiresome
