I have been using the pacifiers that are made of the same material as the nipples on these Gum Drop bottles so I figured I would give the bottles a shot. My baby is still small enough that we don't need a bottle quite this big yet, but for the most part besides the size issue it was a great bottle. The design is sturdy. They are cute, come in many different colors and designs and are super easy to clean. They are a little bit more expensive than the regular cheap bottles but not as expensive as other bottles on the market. I was impressed with the nipples being so like the pacifiers. Made it easy on baby, because she was already used to the texture and shape of the nipple. We won't use it for a couple of months, but when baby gets big enough to need a bigger bottle than I will be using it for sure, and possible will buy a couple more. I would recommend this to my friends. Child's Comfort There were no issues with babys comfort when using this bottle. I would imagine for an older baby it would work well for a baby who was holding there own bottle. Leak Prevention I didn't have any leaking problems with this bottle.
