"I use these nipples successfully"
I use these nipples on standard glass cola bottles. I have not had many problems with them. They are hard to stretch at first, but they get easier. The things I like best about these are that they are not as hard as the black rubber ones, and they don't smell like a car tire, which turns some of my goat kids off completely. They are also vented- they are molded with a rib inside the lip that allows air flow back into the bottle, so I can feed two kids at one time. The black ones have a lip that you have to pull on to vent them, and it cramped my hand before the kid finished, not to mention the callus that it caused on my index finger! These tan ones do get brittle over time, but I have had my last two for several years. Time to buy more!
"Waste of money "
I was extremely disappointed that the nipple does not fit over a soda bottle. the nipple base opening is too small and the material to rigid to stretch over a bottle. I tried putting it on a beer bottle hoping the solid rim would help, but it did not. A total waste of money!!!!!
