Rated 4 out of 5 by from Gets the job done Our darling Georgia was born with a cleft palate and as a result isn’t latching or able to feed from a regular bottle. Thus bottle has been a life saver to get her fed and off of a feeding tube. It’s a learning curve to get the hang of how to use the bottles effectively-it took us a couple of days to feel fully confident. We have been using the same bottle for every feed for the last 4 days and haven’t run into any issues with leaking. The down side is how expensive these bottles are-it seems unnecessary because they only have 2 small parts that regular bottles don’t have. I find Medela is expensive all around.

Rated 3 out of 5 by from Works as intended but sometimes it leaks Great invention as it helps my newborn feed slowly compared to the regular newborn bottles but it would be nice if it had a bigger nipple and if it came with an extra membrane. The membrane is a huge deal because it’s not like the ones used by the breast pumps and they don’t sell them separately. So I suppose you have to buy another $30 feeder if your membrane breaks or you lose it.

Rated 2 out of 5 by from Leaky Bottles but no other options.. These bottles were recommended by a lactation consultant for our son who has a high palate, and a slight tongue and lip tie. They seem to be helping with feeding BUT leak through the collar. we’re very diligent about nktmover tightening the bottles and washing/drying them, but we’ve had 4 in a week - all of which have been leaky. Customer service will be replacing them - we’ll have to return the bottles we have, but i was hoping for a manufacturers coupon for our trouble here. We need as much food in the baby as possible, not ON the baby.

Rated 2 out of 5 by from Disappointed The bottle helps tremendously to feed our baby with a cleft lip. Unfortunately after just a month the bottle nipple hole tears. 2 of the 3 nipples, so we need to spend more $ now. She keeps choking because the flow is too much due to the extra holes. The bottles are so expensive to keep buying every month. They also leak a lot, I'm unable to breastfeed, and formula is so expensive. Feeding has turned into a huge task now due to the bottles. Waiting patiently for her surgery so we no longer have to keep buying them.

Can the nipples be used with any store bought bottle, or just with Madela Bottles?

Asked by: SE57
We have only tested them for use with our Medela bottles. We would be unable to recommend that they be used with non-Medela products. If you have any further questions, please consider live chatting with us on our website. We're here to help!

can the haberman/ Medela nipples be used with any baby bottle.

Asked by: SE57
Yes, they can be used with any Medela bottle as long as the SoftCup Collar (Item #: 101035434) is being used with it. Have a great day!
