Stage 3 Bottle to Replace First Years' Breastflow?

We've been using the First Years' Breastflow nipples and bottles and have just realized that we need to head into stage 3 (right?). When we've tried other bottles in the past, he's rejected all of them but this one. Is there anything else out there that's equivalent? He's 8.5 months old and has recently been weaned to formula. Thanks, mamas!

What can I do next?

We just continued to use the breastflow nipples and bottles until he was on a sippy cup they were also the only bottle that our youngest would take.

If he's OK with the flow, leave it? I say this as you mention "recently weaned" and might get gassy with time and formula/food combo (both mine did a bit) and leaving the flow as-is would stop the added gulp-gas that might come with faster nipple. And what the heck -- not broke, don't fix?:)

WAY TO GO with breastfeeding over 6 mos!

Why do you need to change? My daughter took breastmilk in the same stage one nipples from 10 weeks until I weaned her from the bottle at a year old. I am sure the flow loosened up a little as the hole got worn out, but never had any problems that I heard of (she was only getting them at daycare). I had start with a hard spout sippy and straw cup well before a year and we had no transition problems.
