Can newborns use size 1 nipples?
The newborn nipple should be the perfect size for your newborn, unless, like we mentioned above, if you have a premie who needs a little more time and can’t handle the flow, it’s best to switch to a slow flow size zero. Most regular newborn nipples have the size 1 on them.
How do I choose a milk bottle for my newborn?
A good rule of thumb is to make sure your bottle of choice is BPA-free. Bottle shapes are generally standard (tall and straight), angled (bent at the neck), and wide (designed to hold wide, short nipples that mimic a breast). Bottles come in small (4 oz) or large (8 oz).
Is it OK to use different bottles for baby?
You can generally find baby bottles in smaller sizes (about 4-5 ounces) and larger sizes (about 8-10 ounces). Newborns take in only a couple of ounces at a time, but babies ramp up their eating quickly, so going straight for the bigger bottles could save you money in the long run.
