where to buy cross-cut nipples?
Please tell us all the big chain stores that carry cross cut nipples on the shelf. We need to put this info in our thickening booklet. Is there a brand you like better? Any brand you didn't like?

I think here in Canada, I bought NUBY y-cut bottles and nipples at Wal-mart when we tried thickening for Ror.....however, she could NOT suck from these nipples. In fact, she could not drink regular formula from y-cut NUBY, so I recommend against these if your infant is not a great feeder.

Kathryn, Pager Volunteer and mommy to Emily Mia 02/04/07. 3 years old with GERD. 30mg Prevacid and Pepcid AC. Mylanta needed for flares. Failed prilosec med switch.

Audrey Meadow 06/20/08. born 34/35 weeks. Still b/f and eats everything! ftt and chronic constipation.
we had tried thickening and used Dr. browns Y cut nipples and they were available at our local SUPER-walmart they were not available at our regular walmart but i found they are online at and can be shipped for free site to store. Babies R Us has them and are also available online with tons of other Dr. Browns products.

Emily seemed to do fine with the suck and flow on Dr. Brown and the oatmeal does through just fine, but her GI system could not handle the cereal so that's why we stopped. she hated the bottle but Dr. B's was the only one she would drink from.

Zack born 09/28/07 @ 31 weeks. Dx silent reflux @ 6 mo. Now not so silent. Switched to Elecare @ 9 mo. On Prevacid 15mg 1x daily. Looking to stop the puke and gain some lbs.
Puke stopped about 24 months and he's learning to eat...very slowly.

our BRU had the Y cut Dr Browns (Los Angeles)...but we still ended up having to cut those further with manicure scissors....

cross cut nipples
I bought EvenFlo's high flow nipples with a cross-hatch cut. They work well with the xanthan gum thickened formula.
Check with your
doctor first!
