I actually received this set of bottles for my baby shower. I thought they were nice but unnecessary. Wow! Was I wrong! I ended up being unable to nurse due to the fact that my son had low temperature those first few days in the hospital. He was immediately given a bottle to help get his temperature regulated and after that, he would not latch. I start exclusively pumping and am actually into month 5 of doing so. These bottles turned out to be a godsend. The nipple is the best out there - it allows him to get a great latch and not dribble any of the milk. We tried a couple of other bottles after he got to be about 2 months old and he would either dribble or get frustrated or just swallow alot of air while eating. These nipples are by far the best out there and seem to be exactly the flow he needs. As other reviewers have said, these bottles are a little small, but Medela does make an 8 ounce bottle. For now, I am just filling the bottles and my baby is not drinking more than 6 ounces in a feeding. But when he does, I will get the bigger bottles. I have had some trouble leaking if I don't get the nipple on "just right". That is a little frustrating but easily solved by very slowly placing the nipple on top of the bottle and making sure it is absolutely straight before slowly screwing the cap down. I think the threads on these bottles are poorly designed but this was not enough to make me stop using one of the best nipples on the market.

Leak Prevention
As stated, they can leak if you don't place the nipple exactly right and tighten it well.

I used these bottles because they worked with my breast pump. However, after I stopped pumping, I stopped using these. There are only two nipple sizes available for these bottles. One is slow, which is perfect for newborns. The other is fast. There is no in between. I felt like they were only good for the first few months. They had no way of preventing the baby from taking in air, and you have to break suction for them to be able to continue feeding. They did seem to mimic the breast a little (my child had a similar latch on these bottles as he did onto the breast). I also liked how quick and easy it was to clean them. They are also great for bringing formula in, since they seal with a cap.

Child's Comfort
I would have to take him off of the bottle to get air into it. This wasn't pleasant for the little guy.

Ease of Cleaning
There are only 3 parts, so cleaning is a snap.

Keeps Air Out
There is no mechanism to prevent the child from ingesting air.

Durability
It lasts.

        I use these bottles to store my milk and feed my baby. They're super great and convenient because they work with my Medela breast pump. There is only one size and style nipple which can be difficult for some babies. But works great for ours!

            I've had good success with these bottles. Love how easy they are to clean. My kids don't have acid reflux issues, so I can't speak to these working for those, but they worked well with my pump and for formula.

                Comments about Medela BPA Free Breastmilk Bottles:

                I used the medela bottles for all 4 of my kids. One of the things I loved most about them was they connected to my hand breast pump. I loved that I could pump right into the bottles and then attach the nipple and feed. They also come with lids so are easy to store milk in, and take when traveling. One small con is they only have the one size bottle (that I am aware of) so when the babies get bigger and are eating more the bottles don't hold enough for a feeding. They are other wise great bottles with a nice nipple shape that my babies liked, easy to clean, and just an overall good brand. I would reccomend.

                Comments about Medela BPA Free Breastmilk Bottles:

                I am a huge Medela fan and feel that they have consistently been a leader in baby products. The Medela BPA-free Breast Milk Bottles are perfect for both storage and feeding time. The nipples are unique in that they require the baby to suck before milk comes out. Many traditional bottles have larger holes that allow for free flowing milk. This is fine if you only formula feed, but you transition from breast to bottle, the flow is quite confusing for the baby and they become a lazy nurser.
                I used Medela bottles exclusively with my son when I was healing from some first-time mommy nursing issues. He had absolutely no problem transitioning from breast to bottle, as I was still nursing on one side.
                Additionally, he suffered from colic and GERD (reflux). The slow-flow of Medela bottles minimized his colic by reducing the amount of air that he inhaled at each feeding.
                The bottles are easy to wash, and I love that they are BPA-free. I'm curious about other chemicals, such as phthalates and PVC, however.

                This is my go to bottle for my baby and this is the bottle I recommend to new parents

                Child's Comfort
                It was easy to switch from breast to bottle and back with no problem and my child loved it.

                Ease of Cleaning
                I always cleaned mine with the baby bottle brush and soap and water and it worked well. I did find if washed in dishwasher it left spots even using jet dry in my dishwasher.

                Durability
                Keeps up the bottle after a year of having it.

                Comments about Medela BPA Free Breastmilk Bottles:

                I loved these Medela Breast Milk Bottles. They make pumping and feeding so simple and are very easy to clean. The bottle screws right onto the pump and you can either put the bottle nipple straight on for feeding or put a screw on cap on and put them right in the fridge for storage.

                Child's Comfort
                My child loves the nipples that came on these bottles and they were so easy for him to feed from.

                Leak Prevention
                I personally never had any leaks with these bottles.

                Ease of Cleaning
                These bottles and nipples and caps were very easy to clean and sterilize. A bottle brush fits into them easily also.

                Keeps Air Out
                These bottles were air tight and I never had any leaks from them.

                Durability
                These bottles are very durable. I traveled with them and washed them about a thousand times and never had a problem with them. They also do well in a dishwasher, no warping. The nipples also did well in the dishwasher although they were fog up a little bit, but that would wash right up with some soap.

                This is one of many bottles that we have tried and is the only one that we use! Not only is it great for our baby, but we love that it goes straight from pump to baby with no extra parts needed.

                Child's Comfort
                My little one is breast fed, and has no issue going from mom to bottle!

                Leak Prevention
                We have had absolutely no leak issues. Some of the other brands we have tried failed miserably in this department. So pleased.

                Ease of Cleaning
                About as easy to clean as any other bottle out there. You do have to be careful to get the inside of the nipple clean since there are little grooves in there to help with the air flow. I found that a small brush came in handy for this.

                Keeps Air Out
                No bottle is perfect, but this does an amazing job at keeping extra air out of my daughters tummy. We have few gas issues while using this bottle.

                Durability
                We're four months in with this brand and have yet to have anything break. We've even droped a couple bottles, and still no damage.

                Comments about Medela BPA Free Breastmilk Bottles:

                I registered for and received as gifts, several of these bottles before my first baby was born. After returning for work, I used them for pumping breastmilk with a medela pump and for storing and feeding my baby. Overtime, I bought larger sizes to accommodate my growing baby who was in day care at the time.

                As you can see, my bottles have seen a lot of use. They have washed well in the dishwasher and continue to work well without leaks or cracks as storage containers. Although I've given quite a few away to expectant moms, we like to use them for mixing salad dressing or taking cow's milk to work for my husband's afternoon coffee's. I have never experienced any leaks, my baby never had a problem with taking milk from them, and I appreciate that they are bpa free.

                These bottles don't seem fancy, but even though I both breast and bottle fed my baby from 7 weeks to 1 year, we never experienced problems with nipple confusion. I chose them because they worked well with my pump, but I've kept using them all these years because they work as promised and they last for years of hard use.
