I breastfeed and also supplement with formula. I've tried all bottles available and my little guy did the best on these wide mouth Dr Brown bottles. I also bought the original Dr Brown bottles and don't like them as much - he seems to put the whole nipple in his mouth and ends up choking while he's feeding. That doesn't happen with the wide mouth bottles. I LOVE these!

Circle-A brand doesn't show up in any DC directories, but the bottle says that itwas produced by the Dr Pepper company.
