We have been having trouble w BF, long story, and have been trying different slow flow nipples a pumped milk and formula. The latest we tried were playtex drop ins. He "nursed" for 15 mins and nothing came out. Literally nothing. DH held the bottle upside down, pressed on the liner and squeezed the nipple and nothing came out. Whats up? We also tried Breastflow but he could never pull the milk out. Are we doing aomething wrong or is just his latch??

I'm not positive, but those nipples sound defective! With my slowflow nipples, if I turn them upside down, milk just drips out at a slow rate without me having to do anything else. And my friend used the playtext drop ins and when she would press on the liner, milk were squirt out! So I think something is definitely wrong with the nipples you have if nothing is coming out for you guys!

Sometimes with pumped milk the milk gets clogged in the nipple..I have to squeeze it at the tip then it will start flowing.
