it came to me that I went through many bottles at first and finally tried these ones because DH had gone to the store for replacement nipples and got the wrong type but turned out to be the best kind (and I had the bodies to use becasue I got some handed down from SIL--lucky!)
The silicone nipple, slow flow was really the best fit for us (in fact, I think the ones who were so excellent for us were labelled disposable). The whole nipple part was squishy yet flowed really slowly. just like mom. sort of. not quite but much better than the Gerber or similar we were using (glass bottles).
What if after ever nursing session you offer her a wee bit in a bottle, just to have her used to the bottle. But then you may start the wean inadvertently.
