Faster flowing level 2, level 3, level 4 and Y-Cut versions of the nipple are available for all Dr. Browns baby bottles. There is also a slower flow preemie nipple available for the standard bottle only. Nipples of other brands may leak or feed too fast or too slow. B. When feeding your baby, hold the bottle so that the reservoir tube hole in the bottom of the bottle is not covered by liquid. (Approximately at a 45 degrees angle). C. Keep your baby propped up rather than lying down during feeding. D. While the vent continuously equalizes pressure, movement of any liquid remaining in the reservoir tube is normal. E. If the reservoir bulb remains over 1/3 full when the bottle is placed upright, please check that the nipple hole is clear and that the insert and reservoir are firmly pressed together The reservoir bulb can be emptied by momentarily loosening the nipple collar. [Be sure to retighten before feeding]. F. When transporting bottles, always keep them upright and use travel disk to help prevent leaking. G. For proper bottle and venting functions, use only Dr. Brown's Natural Flow® nipples. H. Keep nipples out of direct sunlight when not in use. Sunlight is known to cause deterioration of nipples. I. Change nipples after approximately 6 weeks of use. When used and sterilized intensively, nipples may deteriorate after 6 weeks. All Dr Brown's bottles, nipples and bottle accessories are tested according to EN 14350; the baby bottle feeding standard for Europe.
