Hi, I know there have been posts in the past about this topic in regards to modifiying baby bottles for use by an adult, but I was wondering if there are any baby bottles available from any "Big Box Stores" that would work for an adult? Just ready to purchase my first bottle, and would like something that does not need to be modified, if I can help it. From what I understand, the vent hole in a baby bottle is too small to work for an adult, so the flow of liquid is too slow?

Thanks,
Straycatz

I use normal baby bottles they tend to work fine for me.

Newborn teats tend to have one smaller hole but faster flow teats are available for older babies. I'd just make the hole bigger, add holes, or cut a teeny tiny cross in the top if baby wants a faster flow. You can probably buy a bottle that comes with a fast flow teat.

I have standard size bottles and use nail clippers to make the hole bigger, then you don't have to pop your ears sucking so hard :)

OK, thanks for the advice. I just bought a "three pack" and will try it out with no mods first, then will modify as noted if need be! This way I have backups in case I destroy the first one with my mods! Getting thirsty.

I got my bottles from Baby-Pants and enjoy them very much. I also have normal baby bottles too. Both work very well.

I've one bottle with wide teat size 3 of Suavinex and it works very good.

I don't use a bottle but have a toddler "Cars"-themed sippy cup from the grocery store--no problems here.

Thanks for the input. I ended up buying a three-pack of standard Evenflo classics, took a knife and carefully enlarged the vent hole as suggested, and it worked great! Might try drinking out of one of the bottles that I have not enlarged the hole and see just how hard it is to get liquid out. Tried plain water first, will now try milk and soda. It's fun! Thanks again!
