How They Work: Bottles
Dr. Brown's bottle features a patented two-piece internal vent system that works unlike any other bottle design. The vent system fully vents their bottle for vacuum-free feeding, which they call positive-pressure flow, similar to breastfeeding. As the baby feeds, air is channeled from the nipple collar through the vent system, bypassing the breastmilk or formula, to the back of the bottle. Air never mixes with the breastmilk or formula which minimizes oxidation and helps preserve essential nutrients like vitamins C, A and E.

Is that a straw in the Dr. Brown's baby bottle?About Dr. Brown's Materials
No it is not a straw. It is a reservoir tube and it's an integral part of the vent system which channels the air to the area above the liquid, keeping the air from being incorporated into the breastmilk or formula.Why is it good to prevent a vacuum from developing in the bottle?
There are two major problems associated with most traditional baby bottles: air and vacuum. Air ingested by babies can cause discomfort, sleepless nights, gas, spit-up, cramps, and other symptoms associated with colic. A vacuum in the bottle can transfer air to a baby's middle ear and can encourage fluid to be drawn in. Traditional non-vented bottles tend to develop vacuums when babies feed from them because babies need to suck progressively harder to get any liquid from them. Babies seal their lips to the nipple when they nurse, but as the vacuum increases they ingest air through a weakened nipple seal. Air enters the bottle through the vent in the nipple and aerates the breastmilk and formula.What is the difference between the Standard and Wide-Neck Dr. Brown's bottles?
All Dr. Brown's baby bottles share the benefits of the patented internal vent system. Many breastfeeding mothers prefer the Dr. Brown's Wide-Neck bottle as the nipple has a broader base, which can avoid nipple confusion for the baby. The Standard Dr. Brown's bottle carries the standard bottle nipple, which is more narrow. Both Standard and Wide-Neck bottles each come in 4-ounce and 8-ounce sizes; their Standard bottle is also available in a 2-ounce size which is ideal for premature babies.Does the Dr. Brown's baby bottle really work?
Yes it does. The Dr. Brown's baby bottle features a patented internal vent system not found in any other bottle. Dr. Brown's bottle is fully-vented for vacuum-free feeding. Dr. Brown's call this positive-pressure flow, similar to breastfeeding, which allows babies to feed at their own pace. As the baby feeds, air is channeled from the nipple collar (not the silicone nipple) through the vent system, to the back of the bottle. Air bypasses the breastmilk or formula which means no oxidation of nutrients. In fact a recent university study determined that Dr. Brown's bottle helped to preserve levels of nutrients like vitamins C, A and E.
Where are your bottles made?
Most of Dr. Brown's bottles are produced and packaged in the USA. Dr. Brown's silicone nipples are made in Germany. Some of their products are made in China. Each Dr. Brown's package clearly notes where that product was produced. Dr. Brown's takes its commitment to quality extremely seriously, and they rigorously test and quality control their products, beyond government regulations, here in the United States.What are your bottles made of?
Dr. Brown's bottles are made of BPA-free polypropylene plastic or BPA-free borosilicate glass. All components of the Dr. Brown's bottle, including the vent insert, vent reservoir, travel disk, nipple collar, and cap are also BPA-free polypropylene. Dr. Brown's nipples are made of medical-grade silicone.
Wash all parts prior to use. The cleaning of the two (2) additional vent assembly parts will require an extra moment. This is time well spent to help avoid spit-ups and other discomforts to your baby.
- Always use clean hands and surfaces.
- Fully disassemble all parts.
- Silicone nipple - first use only: boil the nipple in water for five (5) minutes.
- Wash all parts thoroughly in hot water and detergent. Use enclosed brush on all holes in the insert and reservoir.
- Rinse parts thoroughly in hot water and detergent. Use enclosed brush on all holes in the insert and reservoir.
- Rinse parts thoroughly, making sure that the nipple hole is clean and clear.
- If you use a dishwasher, keep all parts in the top rack only.
You can sterilize bottle-feeding equipment by boiling, soaking in chemical solution or using an electric or microwave sterilizer. Please keep the following in mind:
- Use chemical solutions or sterilizers strictly according to the manufacturer's instructions. They advise you to use the Dr. Brown's Microwave Sterilizer.
- Steam can cause severe skin burns, so be careful when boiling equipment on the stove or using sterilizing equipment.
- Keep all components not in use out of reach of children.
- Wash your hands thoroughly with soap and water before handling sterilized bottles, nipples and accessories.
- Avoid unnecessary handling of sterilized equipment.
Note: The bottle WILL NOT FUNCTION without the INSERT and RESERVOIR
- Avoid formula bubbles: Do not shake the bottle. Formula should be stirred gently to fully dissolve lumps - they can clog nipple holes.
- Fill to the desired amount. The vent will not work properly if you fill the bottle above the FILL LINE WARNING.
- Snap the reservoir fully onto the insert.
- Place the reservoir into the bottle, with the insert making full contact with the top of the bottle.
- Snap the nipple into the nipple collar and place loosely on the bottle.
- Warm the bottle - always remove all bottle components before warming to prevent the vent from leaking fluid if gas forms during warming.
- Do not warm the liquid beyond body temperature of 98.6°F (37°C). Always test temperature of liquid before feeding baby.
- Be sure to tighten the collar snugly before feeding, but do not over-tighten.
- When you use formula, make it up strictly according to the manufacturer's instructions.
- The nipple included has been specifically selected for an infant's first use of the free-flowing characteristics of the Dr. Brown's Natural Flow venting system. Faster flowing Level 2, Level 3, Level 4 and Y-Cut versions of the nipple are available for all Dr. Brown's 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.
- 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° angle)
- Keep your baby propped up rather than lying down during feeding.
- While the vent continuously equalizes pressure, movement of any liquid remaining in the reservoir tube is normal.
- 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)
- When transporting bottles, always keep them upright and use travel disk to help prevent leaking.
- During air travel, please remove internal parts and secure with travel cap or travel disk and nipple collar to prevent leaking from air pressure
- For proper bottle and venting functions, use only Dr. Brown's Natural Flow nipples.
- Keep nipples out of direct sunlight when not in use. Sunlight is known to cause deterioration of nipples.
- Change nipples after approximately 6 weeks of use. When used and sterilized intensively, nipples may deteriorate after 6 weeks.

Allowing your child to use this product for prolonged periods separate from regular mealtimes or to go to sleep while drinking liquids, other than water, from this baby bottle may cause or contribute to early childhood tooth decay. Always test temperature of liquid before feeding baby.CAUTIONS
- Due to the risk of creating formula hot spots and overheating, the use of a microwave oven is not recommended. If you use a microwave oven, remember that the nipple and collar must always be removed during heating. Test temperature frequently by placing a few drops on your tongue or back of your hand after stirring thoroughly to eliminate hot and cold spots.
- Pull on the nipple before each use to make sure it does not tear. Inspect carefully, especially when the child develops teeth, and replace the nipple immediately if it shows any signs of wear or damage, such as cracking or change of shape.
- Stop feeding before your baby has completely emptied the nipple to keep your baby from swallowing air that may cause colic or other digestive problems.
- Remove the bottle from your baby's mouth when the baby is not feeding. Prolonged contact with milk, formula, and other liquids can cause tooth decay.
