Due to all the uncertainty regarding which bottle nipples work with which baby bottles, The Glass Baby Bottle decided to try and help clear up all this nipple confusion :)

Some standard guidelines are to use wide neck nipples on wide neck bottles, and standard or regular nipples with regular neck baby bottles. Also, as a general rule of thumb, if a bottle is vented to help prevent colic it is best to use only the nipple designed for that specific brand of bottle. Vented bottles tend to leak and cause irregular feeding when a non-brand specific nipple is used.

Tips For Nipple Collapse

Anything that causes a vacuum within the baby bottle can lead to the nipple collapsing during feeding, leading to frustration for baby and mom. The following conditions can create nipple collapse even with a compatible bottle/nipple combination:

  • Collar is too tight -- if you tighten the collar and nipple too tightly onto the neck of the bottle, you are more likely to have the issue of nipple collapse. Keep the collar on just tight enough to prevent the liquid from dripping out.
  • Nipple flow rate is too slow -- if your baby is an aggressive feeder for his/her age the age, ranges for different stage nipples may not apply. If the nipple flow rate is too slow it can easily lead to nipple collapse. Try using a nipple with a faster flow rate.

Here's a chart listing the bottles we carry and which nipples they are compatible with:
