I am looking for a bottle for my infant that has a short stumpy nipple. She seems to gag like the regular size nipples are too long. So far we have tried Playtex ventair and a basic Evenflow. Both 0-3mo slow flow. Any suggestions?

What can I do next?

We used the Playtex Drop-ins. I'd suggest just buying nipples before investing in the bottles until you find one that works for her!

My son did well with Gerber NUK nipples.

Try the "MAM" brand bottles.
My breastfed son, loved those bottles.
It is BPA free and has a natural nipple and the bottle does not accumulate air in it, as baby drinks.

It is not commonly sold in stores. But Amazon has it. That is where I got mine. Just input "MAM bottles" in the search box.
This brand bottles/nipples, are commonly used in Europe.

MAM. My son had the exact same thing. I was able to find mine at Babies R Us but they are hard to find.

My baby did well with Born Free. They are pricey, but excellent bottles. The nipples are similar to the natural breast.

We tried the NUK wide mouth bottles for our little one- he is 10 weeks now- and worked for us. Same problem for us and the little one is exclusively breast fed now but I start back to work in two weeks :( so we started trying out the bottle with some pumped milk. I have never tried the MAM bottles other moms recommended. The NUK ones are also BPA free. Good luck!

Breastflow bottles are wonderful. Worth a try.

We used The First Years Breastflow bottles available at Target for my first child. She refused the bottle initially and this was suppose to mimick the breast. It had a "hard" inner portion and a soft short bulb-style nipple that stays constantly full. She liked it and we used that until we could transition her to all the Advent bottles we had purchased.
