Back to reason number one. And this time I know for sure that the bottle’s teats are damaged, and need to be replaced for good. They’d actually drip too fast, stream, and pour everytime I prepare a bottle.

Actually, the problem wasn’t with the bottle’s teats or anything else I mentioned before, but it was from their screw rings. The reason why the teats were streaming or sometimes dripping too fast is that usually I’d tighten or loosen the screw rings too much, which in turn, creates a sort of vacuum letting the flow of milk go fast or slow.
So I don’t need to replace them yet …
The past few weeks, I’ve had a terrible time with the Avent’s teats because they kept leaking and spraying the liquid, and I had to screw and unscrew the bottle, until I was just fed up! I kept thinking, ‘there must be sth wrong with the bottle screws or the teats are just worn out.’ I wanted to buy a whole new lot of teats, until we discovered that they were perfectly fine. When we experimented, it was the hot water that was causing pressure in the bottle, and made it drip faster.
So what I had to do is, say if I want a 120ml water bottle, then I’d fill the bottle with that amount, wait until it cools, and when it’s time for my baby’s feeding, all I have to do is pour out some water, and replace it with more hot water until it’s warm enough.
