Frequently Asked Questions

1. What is the appropriate age to start using the Podee® Baby Bottle? The principal purpose in using the Podee® Baby Bottle is to help reduce colic, ear infections, and reflux. This is accomplished when the baby uses the bottle in an upright or semi-upright position. Hence, it is best to use this bottle when the baby is able to sit in an upright or semi-upright position.


2. How do we make sure that the milk flows easily? Make sure that the bottom of the teat is sealed tightly between the adapter and the screw collar to prevent air from getting into the bottle. If air enters the bottle problems with the flow can occur. Also, make sure that the short tube is connected to the bottom of the disc that goes on top of the bottle, or the system will not work.The teat can be primed with milk by squeezing the wide part of the teat to bring milk up to fill the teat. Sometimes the opening of the cross cut variable flow teat can stick together causing flow issues this can be easily fixed by sliding a toothpick or something similar in and out of the opening a few times to widen the hole size. For more information on setting up the Podee bottle correctly see instructions below.


3. Will I bond with my baby? The Podee system is designed to help with and not to take over the feeding of your baby.By using the Podee system your hands are left free to hold and touch your baby.

11. What type of teat? The Podee bottles and feeding kit includes a specially designed cross cut teat to prevent leaks. Unlike traditional baby bottles, the Podee system does not require different size teat to increase or restrict the flow and speed of liquid. The Podee teat is suitable for babies and toddlers of all ages.



1. How do we solve the flowing problem?

Make sure the bottom of the rubber nipple is sealed tightly between the adapter and the ring (collar) to prevent the air from getting into the tube and rubber nipple. When these parts are not sealed properly, air will get in the tube and rubber nipple which will cause flowing problem. Also, make sure the short tube is connected to the bottom of the disk that goes on top of the bottle, otherwise the system will not work.


2. We find that some of the latex nipples get bigger in size over time. What causes this?

It is common with latex nipples to swell slowly when they are in contact with some substance, like oily or fatty liquids. Normal acids found in baby’s mouth can also make the latex nipple swollen. Swollen latex nipples will cause its material to be sticky, weak, and break easily. We strictly recommend for parents to discontinue use of the latex nipples when one of these signs are present. Replace the latex nipple frequently to avoid this problem.


3. The bottle leaks when laid on its side. What can we do?

The air vent in the feeding system is designed to prevent a vacuum effect inside the bottle when the baby drinks. The system will not function properly without this vent. When the bottle is laid on its side, the liquid will slowly make its way through this vent and thus cause the leakage. As much as possible, keep the bottle in a vertical position to prevent the bottle from leaking. You can also use the “Gimme-A-Hug” Bottle Holder (available at our retailers) to keep the bottle in a vertical position.


4. How do I resolve a problem with tubes sliding off the plastic adapters after cleaning several times?

Cut at least 1cm off the ends of the tube to make the connection tight again. Buy the replacement tubes when needed.
