Totally awesome for even older babiesThis is my second child and I used Dr. Browns with my first child. I thought Dr. Brows didn't get any better, but I was wrong. This Calma nipple is amazing. I'm still breastfeeding my 8 month old as well as doing formula and this nipple seems to help him keep the flow at his own pace. Were going strong and I will keep using this until I'm done. He doesn't like the Dr. Browns because it dumps milk into their mouths and they don't control the flow like with breastfeeding and the Calma.Big big fan.

Love it!I had difficulty nursing in the begining with some latch issues, so it was important to me to find a bottle that would not hinder breast feeding. I started using this bottle when my baby was 6 wks old. The nipple for this bottle is great. It is designed where the baby completely controls the flow of milk. I've never felt like milk was being "dumped" into the baby's mouth, in fact you can see through the nipple while the baby is sucking, that drops of milk are coming out at the baby's own pace. You should be able to turn the bottle upside down with no/minimal milk leaking through the nipple. If it is not working like that, maybe the nipple was assembled wrong? In the past, I've used Dr. Brown's when feeding my niece and nephew so that is what I have been comparing to the calma. I registered for Dr. Browns and took them back and exchanged the set for the a few calma bottles. It's definitely worth the extra money.

For infants learning to breastfeedingMy daughter already breastfeeds so when we used this the milk flow was so fast cause she already knew how to suck, I asked my lactation consultant and she said its for infants that are not yet breastfeeding to teach the, to suck. Wish I knew this before buying it!

Love It! Works wondersFirst, you must establish breastfeeding for 4 weeks prior to offering a newborn the bottle. I was very lucky having taken 3 months off work to care for my baby. When I was ready to return to work, about 2 weeks prior, I had my husband offer my son the bottle at night with the calma nipple, then I would nurse him for his mid-night feeding. This nipple is great and I have not had any nipple confusion or has my son refused my breast after having a bottle. This has been the only nipple I have used and will continue to use it until he stops breastfeeding (8 months and going strong so far!). I would recommend this nipple to any new mom!

terribleI wish there was something to show zero stars. This is our third child and I've had a lot of pain in the early days of nursing with all three. I've had to pump a lot to give my body time to heal and would gladly pay for a nipple that would help me transition back to breastfeeding full time. This is not that nipple. A nipple for Newborn or anything that is suposed to simulate breastfeeding should not literally DUMP milk down the babies throat and cause an infant to choke because it is so fast. Great idea but I am super disappointed.
