For babies who are both breast- and bottle-fed, the Adiri Natural Nurser is more like the breast than any other bottle, reviewers say. Many parents report that this is the only bottle their breastfed infant would take. While some reviewers say the bottles tend to leak, a significant portion of positive reviewers say that the bottle does not leak once you get the hang of using it correctly. The Adiri Nurser has an integrated silicone nipple; so, to move from one stage to the next, parents will have to purchase additional bottles. The Adiri Nursers must be filled from the bottom, which some reviewers say is easy to do, while others think it's a pain. The consensus is clear, however, that for finicky infants who prefer the breast, this bottle is often the only one that works. If you want to switch to something more intuitive to use after your baby is successfully transitioned, BornFree Bisphenol-A Free bottles (*Est. $20 for three 9 oz. bottles) have a simple design.
